Well, here it is. My custom DC cards. I love this game, and I love designing custom cards. This was an inevitable outcome. Note, I made most of these before Forever Evil and Crisis, so forgive the redundancy!

Some are old, some are new, but most of the heroes have been play-tested by my group. Any balance advice would be appreciated greatly!

12/20/14 - Removed all Starting Heroes and Villains that have been officially released, made various format changes and balances. Added Cheetah, Jonah Hex, Static, Nelson Jent, and related cards.

08/08/15 - Removed more officially released cards and cards that were just plain bad. Added Forever Evil Crisis cards. Be sure to check the post with Crisis Villains! In the middle is a link to an ENTIRE CRISIS SET worth of cards!

08/22/15 - Supergirl! Oracle! Ares!

Flavor - The queen of kicks doesn't rack up Power like the man or the boy, but gets 3 Power worth of bonus every time she buys a Super Power. Until the stack runs out, of course.

Flavor - Who else (besides Constantine) (...and Jonah Hex) (...and the Black Lantern Corps...) could have so much control over the dead?

Flavor - Scrying mechanics to the max.

Flavor - Hawk attacks relentlessly, while Dove protects Hawk.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/DC%20Finals/Catwoman.png

Flavor - In the grand scheme, Catwoman is just a common thief. So is she really evil? Who knows, but she's so good at stealing, she can add cheap cards right to your hand!

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/DC/Ares.png

Flavor - Utterly ruthless, Ares is the master of combat. He will make any sacrifice to defend himself and crush his enemies, like a true warlord.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/DC%20Finals/Reverse_Flash.png

Flavor - Flash, reversed. Need I say more?

Flavor - Lobo tears through the Line-Up with weapons to take from others and benefit himself! Not responsible for obscene remarks and gestures made by players who choose this Villain.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/Forever%20Evil%20Crisis/Larfleeze.png

Flavor – What’s mine is mine is mine is mine!

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/Forever%20Evil%20Crisis/Cheetah_1.png

Flavor - Like her original Main Deck counterpart, she steals cards from the Line-Up. Discard an entire hand of kicks and a whole Line-Up of 5 cost cards is free!

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/Forever%20Evil%20Crisis/Captain_Cold.png

Flavor -With the cards I made for Forever Evil Crisis, freezing is a big deal! Cap'n was one of my favorite players, with the alternate Crisis rule that Frozen cards aren't counted as being in the Line-Up, he was an asset. He was really fun in competitive as well!

Flavor - Crush, kill, destroy. Watch your opponents whine as you destroy the card they wanted, or use cards like the White Lantern Power Battery to swipe some big cards to destroy and make some weird plays! This guy was super fun in competitive as well.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/DC%20Finals/Jonah_Hex2.png

Flavor - Die, resurrect, rinse, repeat. He's expensive, but he can turn a lot of terrible turns into mediocre or even good turns.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/DC%20Finals/Nelson_Jent.png

Flavor –The portly protagonist from Dial H can call upon the powers of Heroes at will!... randomly.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/Forever%20Evil%20Crisis/The_Negative_Speed_Force.png

Flavor - A perplexing card where everyone can benefit, but you'll always benefit the most.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/Forever%20Evil%20Crisis/Mirror_Master.png

Flavor - Reflect Mirror Master back and forth from your hand to your discard pile.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/Forever%20Evil%20Crisis/Mirror_Pack.png

Flavor - Super Strength becomes a completely different card.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/Forever%20Evil%20Crisis/Grappling_Chain.png

Flavor - GET OVER HERE! A staple for Crisis, and perfect for Lobo to try and put something better out to destroy.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/Forever%20Evil%20Crisis/Lobos_Space_Hog.png

Flavor - Grappling Chains not enough? Have Lobo ride in on his motorcycle and tear up the Line-Up!

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/DC%20Finals/Kryptonite.png

Flavor – Huh, an Attack and a Defense? A great card for anyone bitter and trying to slow down that player who is dominating with Super Powers, or for characters like Deathstroke and Starfire.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/DC%20Finals/H-Dial5.png

Flavor - A = P(1+rt)? Nah. Less complicated. But time-based storage cards are always fun.

Card Clarification - You can start adding the other word's counters once you've spelled a word. If you want, you could even add counters sporadically. It would just be stupid. Oh, and if this were a real card, the set would probably come with counters for each letter equal to the number of this card in the Main Deck.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/Forever%20Evil%20Crisis/Frozen_Fists.png

Flavor - Game moving too fast and you have a lot of punches? Grab Frozen Fists to slow your opponents down and grab the goodies on your next turn. Even better when you're the Captain!

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/Forever%20Evil%20Crisis/Tearing_Claws.png

Flavor - Testing out new formatting, Tearing Claws gives you a clear understanding of your options, moreso than cards like Secret Society Communicator and family.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/Forever%20Evil%20Crisis/The_Black_Room.png

Flavor - Store your magic tricks for when you need them! Its counterpart, the Red Room, does the same for Equipment.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/DC%20Finals/Htrae2.png

Flavor - Bizarro's home planet, where everything is backwards.The closest I could come up to for "Take an extra turn" in this game, it also has some nice uses in Crisis when somebody draws the exact card they need. Or, keep it around for significant VP!

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/DC%20Finals/Themyscira.png

Flavor - A Paradise Island of beautiful and super-humanly powerful women? Of course the powerful will always benefit here! (I almost made gender-based cards...)

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/DC%20Finals/Solaris.png

Flavor - Made this guy after reading All Star Superman. Extremely powerful himself, he will sap all of your powers away from you before you can strike.

http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/DDHyuugaman/DC%20Finals/Circe2.png

Flavor - Another expensive god, Circe loves tempting her victims with enticing offers to gain cards at a cost. She also has a knack for transforming cards into other cards... but will she turn it into a lowly pig? ... And seriously, Wonder Woman needs more representation in this game!

Card Clarification - The Weakness and Kick come from the stacks. So you can gain one Weakness (net), a Kick and three Weaknesses, or the top card and anywhere from 1-9 Weaknesses.

These cards are really cool Mac, I may try to convince my friends to play with a couple of the Character cards in our games.

Question: How do you make these and would you be capable of re-creating the original character cards as well? (I asked in a forum post for Matt to provide them for everyone, but he hasn't followed thru yet and I would love to have these and the originals reprinted as mine as nearly destroyed from use.)

I just printed them out on paper. Sometimes we don't even print them out.
We don't use the non-Starting cards. I make these as a creative outlet.

I won't be re-creating DC or Cryptozoic owned cards for legal reasons.

Cheetah and Larfleeze were just play-tested by my group in Heroes Unite.

Cheetah, as expected, was focused on high power combos. Her math can get a little complicated for mental-mathematically challenged people like me. She was almost useless in the early game, but repeatedly swept the Line-Up at the end game, which is how she ended up winning. A Captain Atom combo into a 4-cost Starbolt was beautiful.

Larfleeze was really well balanced, having massive potential, if and only if you bought a lot of cheap cards. Synergized perfectly with his in-game Villain card.

I really like the Felix Faust-ian implications of this card.

Any thoughts on the ability of a playable Circe Super Villain for Forever Evil?

EDIT: And speak of the god himself, there he is, in my collection!

Two questions for you. First, how did you get the templates for the oversized villain cards? And second, did you see my post "Crossover Wishlist"? I have also made versions of Oracle, including a Nemesis Super-hero. Interested?
