Epic list of Epics

45 posts in this topic

There's also Knoxx, the shape shifting epic David fought.  One of Newton's gang, mostly took the form of a pigeon, wasn't around long enough (i think) to get a real epic name.

Oh good point.  I didn't even think of him.

Wow I don't remember most of them.  I'll update tomorrow.

Actually David aknowledges to himself that he was wrong in calling Regalia a High Epic. When explaining the term to the other Reckoners he supports Tia´s definition by saying:

After listing some examples like Steelheart and Firefight he thinks:

After the explanation Regalia has only been refered to as a high Epic once, after David killed her. So unless there´s another definition given in the first book David simply made the common mistake of assuming powerful Epic equals High Epic.

You gotta remember though, David spent most of his life writing his Epic notes, cannibalizing terms from multiple actual classification systems (possibly incorrectly) and making up his own. When he is corrected by the actual expert he is probably willing to change his mind, but he's probably used to doing it wrong. He probably did have a different definition of High Epic once that subconsciously made him associate Regalia's threat level with Steelheart, and promptly caught himself after Tia pointed it out.

Obliteration killed the Epic Endless Dreams, an Epic with some sort of Prime Invincibility.

Also, these epics are really bad at coming up with superhero names!

Yes, though in fairness Brandon has mentioned that it is hard to find superhero/villain names that aren't already trademarked. I do think it is representative of what would happen if random people off the street had to come up with a name related to a random powerset. Not everyone is super creative, and the clever idea they had might have been for that other Epic's powers, not their own.

 

Once you get this list to a good stage of completion, it would be great if you could transfer the information to the coppermind. That wiki needs some love, especially on non-cosmere works like the Reckoners.

Aren't working as in they're always open or there's nothing in them?

Always open. The Oregon one is fine, but the other two have an empty spoiler box followed by all the text. I am guessing that the issue may be with the /spoiler end tag?

EDIT: Actually, maybe it's my browser. I just opened the page in a different one and all three looked fine. Carry on!

I just remembered Backbreaker. We know absolutely nothing about this Epic besides the fact that David mentions him/her in the same sentence as Obliteration as an Epic capable of destroying all of Newcago. This presumably makes Backbreaker "a big deal," as the kids say.

Wonder what backbreaker does, to be listed in the same breath as Mr Nukes-Cities-for-God

His power is breaking the back of people like, telekinetically? Weird

Hey! I'm a bit late to this, but I found a few more (some are only in Calamity, I think), if you're still doing it -

There's Amala - Unknown powers.

Absence - Unknown powers, High Epic

I guess you could include Calamity, though I'm not really sure if he should be included or not.

Calling War - Unknown powers, High Epic

Daystorm - Unknown powers, High Epic

Strongtower - Unknown powers, has a power like Steelheart's, High Epic

Crossmark - Unknown powers, can only be killed by 5 people shooting at her at once. Not a High Epic

Dialas - Unknown powers

The Creer Boys (twins, members of the Coven) - Air pressure control, pain manipulation, precognition.

Also:

Anything isn't Curveball's weakness, as "Anything" can't make him run out of bullets (/negate his powers)

Fortuity's weakness is definitely attraction (no need for ?)

Where did you get Obliteration's weakness from? I don't remember it being mentioned.

I don't think Faultline has a Prime Invincibility.

Sorry this is so long, and you should note that most of my information is taken from the Coppermind page on Epics (which classifies High Epics as those with Prime Invincibilities btw).

So whoever just requested access, I can't send you the access permission because it's blocked by your domain.
