|Real Name: Robert Sampson |
Born in: USA
Ethical alliance: Evil
For many years, Robert worked for a steel company, but when the economy faltered, the company had no choice but close down. Things got tough, and Robert couldn't find work. Desperate, he started a life of petty theft.
Being a small-time crook allowed him to survive, but barely. He needed to move up his game. He was pretty smart and had learned quite a lot at his former job, and metallurgy was one such thing. It was time he put his skills to better use.
The old warehouse was abandoned, but it had not yet been emptied and a lot of the supplies were still in there. He took what he needed and went to work making a suit that would help protect him and make his life of crime easier.
He found a stash of pinball balls, and the equipment to make more. These would make decent ammunition, he told himself. He incorporated a firing and storage system in his suit and was now ready for bigger game.
Power armor: Robert's suit holds hundreds of ball bearings that he fires from his wrists at 60000 psi.
Flight: The suit is equipped with a propulsion system that enables him to fly.
Physical resistance: The suit is made from a special alloy, making it capable of resisting attacks from heavy artillery.
