MC Frontalot - Mutants and Masterminds 3E

Like many of my friends, I love the father of nerdcore hip-hop, MC Frontalot. I found a picture of "steam punk" Iron Man armor and it reminded me of Frontalot. This gave me the idea to include Front in my Mutants and Masterminds game.

Damien Hess (aka MC Frontalot), is the father Nerdcore and Metacore (not to be confused with Metalcore) hip-hop.

Front was the first to start dropping rhymes about capes and has a cult following, especially among younger heroes. Being mentioned in a Frontalot song is considered a badge of honor to some. Still there are those in the superhero community that believe Damien is wasting his talents and should focus more on fighting the good fight and less on his career.

In addition to being a hip-hop master, Frontalot is also a world class inventor. He has been known to unleash his nerd on crime in his Braggadacio Mark IV Power Suit. While he's not in the same league as someheroes, Damien is more than capable of handling street-level threats.

And here's a sample of Frontalot's music for those of you not familiar with him. Warning some language not appropriate for work.


  1. If you like Front a lot you should check out 20 sided Rhymes. It is a really good, free album and Front has a song on it. MC Lars is also really good, though he has a little different style.
    Kirby Krackle is also pretty good.

  2. I like MC Lars and just learned about Kirby Krackle earlier today. I used to like MC Chris and while I still like some of his music, I don't like him as a person. He just seems like a jerk in most of his postings and interviews.
