Mutants & Masterminds First Appearances: Nero the Newshound and Ogre Bear

Today’s characters for the Kickstarter backers who supported us at the First Appearance level are definitely unique!

From James Dawsey of Vigilance Press, we have Nero the Newshound. An immortal investigator of the weird and unusual… who also happens to be a little weird and unusual himself.

And, from Michael Schell, we have Ogre Bear! A professional wrestler-turned super hero! Anthropomorphic heroes, here we come!

Two more heroes tomorrow, so check back!
