@mrmagicjones: Just one, and I say this often: if you've got the idea, you've got the story. Your writing skills only get better with practice. So write the story/ stories, and keep on going.

@boschepg: And that is understandable and I appreciate that...

Which is why I also wanted some suggestions of some adventures or villains (or even heroes because they aren't exactly truly heroic) for them to face....

Because just like Guardians or the Ultimates... They won't be replacing a major team they will be a team amongst the DC Universe doing some earth bound missions but mostly in space

^^^They're fine, like boschePG said, but this is essentially an Official Handbook for characters that don't exist beyond your official handbook. Characters are more than their stats. It's hard to have an opinion without reading them in a story.

@cbishop: Of course but even sometimes you can look at a character and be like.... Nah that character is too mary/gary stu-ish by what they post

And to your second point which why I also asked for suggestions for mainly villains and adventures or plots that can affect the team within DC lore so that it can be put up against the "official handbook" because that is where I am mostly stuck at

1. Origin
2. Become established in space
3. Take on the impossible

I've actually been at this point when I initially came to this site, so if you want to save yourself three years please listen up.

Like you I thought that because I filled a few character sheets out I had characters. In truth, I had nothing. As soon as you begin typing this story on a keyboard you are going to realize extremely fast that almost every idea you have in your head is going to change vastly once it goes on a word document. The fastest way to be a good writer is to write, the fastest way to become a great writer is to read, write, and revise.

I understand why you desire input on these characters, but it's unnecessary and also a hindrance on your creative process. Don't write characters that appeal to an audience you want to attract, instead write characters that you are interested in, that way your passion will be evident in your writing.

Lastly, if you wish to build characters focus more on the decisions they've made as opposed to their powers/abilities. Powers/abilities are what your characters are capable of doing, decisions are what your characters have actually done. Mary Sue characters are identified by their lack of weaknesses as opposed to their quantity of powers. That has more to do with your writing ability than paper stats.

My advice is to think up three acts then write your story. If the outline is taking longer than a week just start writing. Good luck!
