KMC Superhero/villain Types Thread

I'm making this thread because we have a thread for defining power levels like Trans, Meta, Herald. I want to make a thread for Comicbook powerset types, like 'Brick', 'Speedster', 'Martial Artist', etc.

One reason being that I think it could be fun to see what as a board we can come up with for classes of superheroes and how many we can come up with, another is I think that sometimes we have a general assumption of what a term like brick is but it may not always be the same for everyone, and I think this could help new people on the board become more adapt at how we define things on KMC.

So what I would like is for people to give a type of powerset, define it, then give an example of characters that fall in it both low end or high end. Once I feel a general consensus is met I'll edit into the front pages.

Please don't go over Trans level beings when trying to define types of characters.

Example(This is not the definitive definition, it's just an example and open to debate):
Brick/Tank - A character possessing super levels of durability, and strength. Any other powers they have generally help with their physical nature as a front line fighter like a healing factor. They can possess some degree of super speed but often not much, and they are ground based and can not fly. They don't possess any ranged attacks other than what their strength provides them such as Thunder-Claps.

Low-range: Luke Cage
Mid-range: Thing, Rhino, Colossus
High-range: Mangog, Juggernaut, Hulk, The General(Shaggy-Man)

I'm going to sticky this to the top of the Vs Section because this is where the most attention is. If it's successful I'll move it over the Comic Book section and keep it there.

Speedster - a Speedster would be someone who ONLY has superspeed or speed based abilities for a power. Much like a brick would be someone who is only strong and durable (for the most part). i.e. Superman would not count as a brick or a speedster. Neither would the SS. Even though both are as fast as many "speedsters".

Low: Quicksilver
Mid: Makkari
High: Zoom, Flash

Elementals - Characters who wield and manipulate a fundamental force of nature.

Low: Storm, Human Torch
Mid: Red Tornado
High: Magneto, Captain Atom, Iceman etc.

Time manipulators - The characters who can use their powers to manipulate time.
Low: Clock master
Mid: Hourman 1M, Chronos
High: Time-trapper, Immortus

Reality Manipulators These characters can manipulate the fabric of reality itself.
Low:?
Mid: The Doctor, Jenny quantum
High: Franklin Richards, True Legion, Mad Jim Jaspers, Mr. Mxyzptlk

Psionics - These characters can use TP/TK to affect minds and their enviornments.
Low: Hellion
Mid: Proffesor X, Emma Frost, Jean Grey, God like Cable
High: Starro, Shaman X-man Necrom.

Teleporter - People who possess the power to teleport either themselves or others.
Low: Nightcrawler
Mid:???
High: Blink

Flying Brick - Someone that possesses flight, super-strength, and increased durability. They also possess super-speed and can also have some form of energy based attack

Low-Level: ...
Mid-Level: Namor, Captain Britain

Good luck. The tiers thread was closed years ago, so we technically don't have it anymore (at least not an updated one).

I agree speedsters are beings with only superspeed or speed based powers

I like the idea of having something like this on KMC.

Here is a wikipedia list that could serve as a foundation:

EDIT: For some reason each time I try to link using the original URL it gets cut off and won't work. Weird.

We need a name a for characters like Superman, Hyperion, Gladiator, Supergirl, Supreme, Majestic, etc

Capes? the only problem is some characters wear capes who don't fit this mold.

I've always called them brawlers cause that seems to be their niche as the take on any kind of threat. Although Super-Brawlers might be better. They possess super strentgh speed durability and flight. They often have some form of energy attack for long range. They often have high levels of resistence to different types of attacks which help in their role as front line fighter.

Superman is an example of high end.

Namor would be an example of mid range.

I don't think I would put Namor in that grouping. He has a different power set entirely. Superman, Majestic, Hyperion, Gladiator, etc, are all super strong, durable, can fly, are super fast, have heat vision, etc. I've always called them "Superman Clones", although that's not the catchiest name I suppose. Namor on the other hand has no super speed, no heat vision, and can breath underwater (although some of the Superman Clones can too, I suppose). Also his power is tied to being wet.
