Character Portrait

History

The original Megaphone came from a future civilization of Earthlings, which had evolved a warrior-judgment force. Megaphone was part of this force. But he was enough of a technician to implement specialized armaments, such as a smiley-face "Boogity Boogity" round which would strike like a large rubber bullet, then flop on the ground in a silly manner.

Megaphone eventually hijacked a time machine to go back to his ideal period of history: the rough and tumble 1990s. There he hooked up with the notorious independent superhuman squad Total Conversion, and sired a daughter with the vigilante "Nympho" around 1994.

It is presumed that Megaphone was dragged back to his original time period after staying past the year 2001. Before that happened, he cloned himself. His associate Bandolier raised Megaphone's natural daughter and his clone son as his own. The daughter became the second Bandolier, the son the second Megaphone. The new Megaphone is now enrolled in Power School, under the tutelage of Powernauts.


Personality

The original Megaphone was highly sardonic, and ready to flout regulations even as a member of Total Conversion. The second-generation Megaphone is growing up to be a jock, at high-school level as of 2013.


Powers and Abilities

Each Megaphone is an enhanced human, to the height that bioengineering can achieve in the next 200 years or so. Each one wears a battlesuit, with similar technological advances. The suits do not fly, but the boots allow them to jump to indeterminate heights. Each one wields a large gun, which generates projectiles at need. These include:

  • Flamethrower.
  • Electroshock.
  • Freeze.
  • Blast. Freeze followed by Blast is invariably fatal, even against powerful opponents. Megaphone is fine with that.
  • Boogity Boogity. This is the infamous silly stun gun weapon.
  • Sleepy Time. Similar to Boogity Boogity, but loaded with stun drugs.

Appearance

The Megaphone uniform is crypto-fascist, but not necessarily hostile as long as the wearer is smiling. Megaphones usually smile.


Publications


Author's Notes

Total Conversion is coming into 1992 Powernaut publication, featuring four individual members who already have history with Powernauts. Three of them already have Wiki entries, and it's time for Megaphone to join them.
