Supervillain (Master Villain)
Deathmaster is, obviously, a Master Villain. Campaigns that feature him are pretty standard--prevent Deathmaster from reactivating the Paragon and conquoring Earth. How he accomplishes this is hard to say, as few things on Earth (or Solar System, for that matter) are capable of repairing and repowering the Paragon at their best. But these things called "Superheroes" and "Supervillains" tend to stand head and shoulders above these sniveling, skittering Earth humans, and so they tend to be the focus of Deathmaster's attention. Locating and piecing together magical artifacts, utilizing another World Engine's power core, or even teleporting to an alternate world are some methods Deathmaster could use to achieve his goals. Holding the world for ransom or happening upon a massive and loyal army are nice second place prizes for Deathmaster as well (after all, once you rule Earth, it shouldn't be too hard to reawaken the Paragon, right?), but are given distinctly less attention. Nonetheless, Deathmaster is flexible, and can be suited to many campaigns as a Master Villain. Even comedy campaigns. Simply reduce Deathmaster's statistics (and height) by a huge amount, give him a squeaky voice but keep all of his psychological hangups. Boom. Instant comedy villain. Cloning vat had a malfunction so we're stuck with him. As he is knowledgeable in magic as well as science, Deathmaster could sort of fit into a more fantasy scene. If so, trade in some of his technological powers for magic or add some magic to his list of powers. Deathmaster doesn't primarily indulge in magic by default, as it serves him better to infuse it in his technology, but a change of pace could always do. Adjust Deathmaster's stats to fit the campaign level. If he is too strong (and he probs is), then reduce his stats or a power or two, but keep his Speed as it is.
Deathmaster prefers to let his underlings deal with enemies while he toils away at his plans behind the scenes and keep his overall existance a secret. Failing that, Deathmaster keeps a pair of Elite Death Dealer robots with him as protection at all times. When superheroes manage to encounter Deathmaster, he will usually either sic his least-strongest minions on them first to buy himself time to either teleport the right weapon to himself using his Variable Power Pool or to teleport himself and escape. The Elite Death Dealers will always follow should he try to escape, and be sicced on the heroes only when he absolutely has to. In the event where Deathmaster must fight, he will start by putting his Elite Death Dealer robots between himself and his opponents, using his high-tech weaponry to support them from afar. Should they be overcome (or circumvented by a clever hero), Deathmaster will break out his close combat weapons and deal with the threat with extreme prejudice. Few heroes would expect a "coward" to fight so fiercely, and competantly, with attacks that can threaten even Bricks.If Deathmaster is with the other Masters of Chaos, Deathmaster is at his strongest. He works surprisingly well as their team leader, able to direct each Master to work their strengths and be more effective in team battles. His overall strategy does not change, except Deathmaster is more confident the other Masters would be more effective than his Elite Death Dealers (and he's right). If Deathmaster finds himself outmatched and on the brink of utter defeat, then whatever doomsday weapon he has will be activated by him. Deathmaster is no mere villain--as a Master Villain, Deathmaster does not believe in "defeat" and will unleash whatever ultimate weapon he is hiding. The GM can make this a death robot, a suit of powered armor for himself, or even an elixer that grants superpowers. A "second form" if you will. Should Deathmaster ever achieve his goal of reactivating the Paragon, that is basically a "bad end" scenario for the game unless it is the very end. The Paragon is a weapon capable of frying Earth, but being buried in the ground for near a million years has made it slow to awaken, and a capable team of superheroes could theorhetically put it back to sleep by damaging it enough. As of this typing, I haven't statted The Paragon as a Master Villain, as it's more of a losing scenario.
"Prepare yourselves for the end, insolent worms."

Deathmaster stands at around 6'2, a humanoid wrapped in black and white clothing from head to toe. His head is adorned with a skull-shaped helmet, with two blue shining eyes all that is visible in the otherwise-empty eye sockets. His joints are armored with bone-white caps of plate mail made of unknown scientific make and are harder than steel. Technological devices of strange make are around his utility belt, of sickening green and black colors. The Paragon is another story. It resembles an impossible mix of magic and technology, more akin to an ancient golem than some futuristic robot. The Paragon is currently imbedded in bedrock, seemingly lifeless. When activated, it glows with a dark green color, and turns from some rocky exterior to black, immaculate looking metal. Its "joints" are actually made of some green, dark energy that binds its arms and legs to its body and respective locks. When unleashing its Doom Laser, its eyes turn red and burn all that it sees with the force of a dozen nuclear bombs.

The enigmatic Deathmaster. Few know of his existance. Even fewer know where he comes from. A million years ago, there existed a "Progenitor" race of humanoid creatures who dominated the planet Earth. These ancient beings were incredibly advanced, sophisticated, and cultured. They had colonized the moon and almost all the planets in the Solar System. But these beings were also as arrogant as they were advanced. Having long since mastered both science and magic, these Progenitor Beings each thought that they should be master of all rather than the paltry planets they currently possessed. Rather than build massive fleets of space-worthy vessels, the Progenitor Beings instead devoted untold years crafting and perfecting dangerous weapons with their magic and technology. These "World Engines" were the pride and joy of their creators. Within each World Engine was woven the absolute best innovations from the Progenitor Being's very best scientists and magicians and were expected to carry out a galactic conquest the likes of which the Milky Way had never seen.But it was not to be. For several leaders of the Progenitor Beings, upon activating these doomsday weapons, realized that THEY should be the one to rule their civilization. These leaders then turned on each other, igniting a civil war that lasted 1000 years. The World Engines battled each other on cosmic battlefields, their weapons strong enough to wipe out entire planets and their denizens with ease. Armies were amassed and sent out, agents in secret stealing intelligence on an interplanatary scale for their factions. But when all was said and done, the Progenitor Beings were the agents of their own undoing, and the World Engines eventually obliterated all of them and reduced their once-great cities to ruin.Each planet in the System Sol had one World Enging, save for Earth. One was known as Project: Archetype Earth. The other was the unknown World Engine we would come to know as "Deathmaster". Archetype Earth and Deathmaster were once constructed merely to defend and nurture the Earth from the other World Engines and built to be the most powerful of them all. But there were certain...."glitches"....that the Progenitor Beings could not eradicate from their programming: Minds of their own. To dissuade the World Engines from going berserk, the Progenitor Beings instilled within them the finest education of their culture and customs, technologies and magics. One was successfully made into what the Progenitor Beings considered their "Paragon" while the other would become their "Antithesis". The Paragon and the Antithesis did battle with each other that reshaped the very foundation of the world. Realizing they were too equal, one of the World Engines sacrificed most of its power to seal the other away, as well as deactivate the remaining World Engines on their respective planets. The Antithesis, Archetype Earth, had truly brought an end to this great and terrible civilization. Their Paragon, Deathmaster, would slumber for nearly one million years. Buried away in Ancient Hyperborea, Deathmaster lay dreaming, replaying that final battle an untold trillion times within the cortex of its impossible brain. In the meantime, descendants of the Progenitor Beings' slave races would evolve into what we know as "humanity" today. The planet Earth healed under the watchful eye of Archetype Earth and its creations. But it would not be its final fate. For one day, in the 1920's, the Paragon partially awoke from its endless slumber. Stuck far within the arctic Earth, the Paragon managed to use the last of its energies to awaken a small chamber within its base and create its first minions and its avatar, the "Deathmaster" that Earth's Heroes are familiar with. Created to be a genetic clone of a Progenitor Being but without the building blocks necessary for the "soul", this body would house a fraction of the World Engine's mind and be controlled remotely.Deathmaster gathered three intensely loyal followers and formed the Masters of Chaos. Their mission would be simple, yet complicated at the same time. Reawaken the Paragon (or "True Deathmaster", as it called itself now), reshape the Earth to bring back the Progenitor Beings from extinction, and enslave these filthy "humans" that have since taken over. Or destroy them all, if need be.
Deathmaster is a dreadful, mysterious creature to behold. Within its being lies not a single iota of sympathy for life as it is on Earth. The Progenitor Beings were perfection incarnate, and these mucky humans or whatever don't deserve to stamp around the planet like they own the place. All life on the planet have no right to exist, and Deathmaster would rather blast them all to oblivion if given the chance. What "exceptions" exist shall either willing die for his cause or be "relegated" to higher servitor status at best. Even the other Masters of Chaos are seen as only less expendable by Deathmaster. Although if they do happen to succeed in reawakening the Paragon, it might be yet convinced to take the Masters of Chaos as "favored thralls" for its own collection.
