Foe of: The Justice League of America



Ed's Notes: A couple of changes that *I* like to make to both bring him up to 3rd Edition snuff and to be consistent with his original origin of having adapted all of the powers of the first JLA, not including Batman or Superman:


1) His Dex should be 13, and his initiative 45. No one in ANY incarnation of the JLA has a Dex of 12. I'm not sure where that comes from. But Wonder Woman's is 13.

2) Lose the Sonic Beam, because Black Canary wasn't there. (Or increase it to 10, because that's what her's is rated at in 3rd ed.) (No: Delete it. It's pointless.)

3) Increase Flight to 15, grant Invulnerability: 16, and lower Stretching to 6, all to match Martian Manhunter. (The increases don't really matter though: The Green Lantern Ring is better in both cases.)

4) Give him Wonder Woman's Weaponry skill of 13, and increase Acrobatics to 11 to match her score as well.  Then give him her Lasso and Bracelets:

Lasso of Truth [Str: 15, Body: 35, Animal Control: 15, Control: 5] Limitation: Control can only be used to make ensnared target tell the truth; Animal Control can only ward off or coral beasts.

BRACELETS [Body: 30]

Now THAT'S the one-man Justice League (wrecking machine) as originally conceived!

First Appearance: The Brave and the Bold #30 (June, 1960)

  1. You are mostly right with what Amazo's powers should beconsidering its creation. But in The World at War Sourcebook, an earlier stage of some heroes are presented and Wonder Woman is shown having DEX 12. Perhaps hshe had that when captured to create Amazo and improved later on. Amazo's DEX wouldn't change.

  2. I came to use "In Hot Pursuit" adventure module, in which you play Superman, and youhave to stop Amazo, who has just freed from LEXCORP. I was amazed when I read "If it appears that Superman will defeat Amazo too quickly...". Amazo just have to activate his Superspeed and substitue DEX for Superspeed, that way Superman will have ahard time hitting him in the first place, and Amazo can land Devatating blows on the Man of Steel (Don't understimate Amazo, if used properly!).
