So, we haven't done one of these in a while πŸ˜€.
So for those that don't know, this is a creative writing game. The first person has too come up with a name and description for that character. At the end, the first person has to provide another name for a character that the next person will have a crack at describing and so on.
I'll begin with Captain Miniscule:
"
in the summer of 1938, while Adolf Hitler planned the conquest of Europe, his Minister of Propaganda, Amos Goebbels was secretly assembling a group of the most intelligent scientists and inventors in all of Germany, led by the enigmatic Dr Otto Schmidt. Seeking a weapon to use against Germany's enemies before her armies commenced their march on Europe,the brain trust gathered at a laboratory hidden high in the mountains and began to invent. But their engineering did not have the outcome they, nor anyone else for that matter ever expected. Instead of developing more conventional weaponry that would easily satisfy their masters, they created the prototype for a bizarre vehicle known as a Gyropanzer (Tank Top). Based upon the designs of the popular children's toy of that era, gyropanzers resembled larger versions of classic spinning tops with similar underlying principles, enabling them to rotate themselves around their lengthwise axis at incredible speeds. As explained by Dr. Schmidt to a fascinated Hitler, once inside the gyropanzers, soldiers would be in command of vehicles spinning as fast as 800 revolutions per minute while still being able to retain their ability to speak, hear and see their environment, allowing them to move in any direction along the ground at superhuman speed, though they theoretically would be able travel up to over 50 miles per hour in a straight line for 90 minutes before stopping based on the condition of the engines. Furthermore, whilst spinning, the gyropanzers would not be able to be touched or caught due to the tremendous angular momentum created by the rotation, and anyone foolish enough to try for that matter, would have to deal with the gyropanzers' secret arsenal, which employed various 12 inch diameter sawblades mounted on the sides of the vehicle's metal hull and driven by two AC servo-motors each. Activated by switches inside the gyropanzer, the blades would spin at approximately 9000 revolutions per minute and would ideally saw through any substance softer than steel due to their hardened composition. Delighted with this idea, Hitler allowed Schmidt to manufacture the gyropanzers which as a result, enabled Nazi Germany the victory over Poland just a year later, serving as the catalyst for the Second World War. Unfortunately for the newly-formed Allies, the kriegsmaschinen of the Nazis proved superior to the less advanced technology of America, France and England and for a great deal of time during the first years of the war, it was widely believed that Hitler and his henchmen would succeed in what they had set out to achieve. And then, just when it seemed all said and done, just when all hope seemed lost... Captain Miniscule arrived. As it was revealed later in a public press conference, whilst the manufacturing of the gyropanzers had taken place in Germany, over in the far north of Canada, Dr. Jebediah Hawthorne, a Canadian biochemist with extensive knowledge in many other scientific fields, discovered a rare group of subatomic particles, which have since become known as "quarks," and, through the application of electromagnetic fields, Hawthorne was able to entrap the quarks within two separate serums. One serum would reduce the size of persons and objects, while the other would restore them to their regular height. Using himself as a human guinea pig, Hawthorne had tested the reducing formula on himself and had found that it was more powerful than expected: it has reduced him to the size of an insect. Throughout this time, Hawthorne became entrapped in a beehive and was pursued by the bees within. Fortunately, he was able to escape and restored himself to his normal height and after recounting his astonishing tale to his wife, decided that the serums were too dangerous to exist. However, after catching wind of the gyropanzers, he reconsidered his decision and began to recreate his formulae, whose existence he then kept hidden. Inspired by his misadventure in the beehive, Hawthorne also undertook a study of entomology and theorised that bees communicate through electrical waves transmitted through their antennae. Finally, after weeks of work, Hawthorne succeeded in the development of the first "cellular cowl" which would enable him to communicate with bees through the transmission and receiving of electrical waves and, thinking that he might one day want to use his reducing serum on himself again,also designed a protective costume for himself. That same day however, Hawthorne received an assignment from the government to concoct a gas that would provide people with temporary immunity to gunfire under certain specific circumstances based on his previous work. As well as this, the government also assigned five other scientists to assist him in the development of this gas. Unfortunately, the Gestapo, the German intelligence agency, learned of the project and sent agents who held Hawthorne and the other scientists captive in their own laboratory. However only Hawthorne was the only person who knew the entire formula for the gas they had by now developed and he refused to tell the Gestapo agents, much to their frustration. The Gestapo then set about searching the laboratory for the formula, intending to kill the scientists afterwards. Using the distraction to his advantage, Hawthorne slipped away unseen and donned his cellular cowl and protective costume and, using his shrinking serum to reduce himself to the size of a bumblebee, escaped to a beehive outside and proceeded to take control of the bees via the cowl and used them to attack the agents and freed his comrades, who then overpowered their assailants. Hawthorne then restored himself to normal size.
Afterwards, in the guise of Captain Miniscule, Hawthorne served as an agent of the Allied military, helping to disable the Nazi gyropanzers and combat the rivaling superhumans of the Axis Powers, including Gnadige Frau Drohung (Madame Menace) Gladiatore, Kamikaze and the Iron Shogun, as well as the Nazi biochemist Schawtzenhexen (Black Magic) who would go on to become his foremost archnemesis."

And for the next person, I leave you with... Polymercenary.
