Hey Darkcide, sorry it took me several days! Here's my application!

Real Name: Leon Lisciotti

Affiliation: Money
Citizenship: United States
Marital Status: Single
Occupation: Contracted household anti-superhero solution. Now with 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back*.

Gender: Male
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 160 lbs
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Black

Concept: Mutant with a power armor.
Description: Unassuming civilian by day, unassuming civilian who can secretly ruin Aquaman's day by night. Sure, he can dress quite well but everyone brushes him off as just someone whose fashion sense is dictated by his girlfriend.

Now, in his work gear, BLOODLETTER the numero uno one-man super-hero suppression system looks built like a wild tiger! And he should, considering how much he paid for the suit. And how much he paid for shipping from Hong Kong. Filled with LEDs and disco lights that'll make a raver proud, BLOODLETTER is well-suited for shimmying to Batstep on top of the Batmobile during the Batparty hosted by BatDJ at the Batcave.

Powers: Ability to momentarily shut down certain types of powers by interfering with the user's nervous system with an aura emanating off his body. The aura's range is rather short, and might as well be very close contact. Difficult to train, and Leon has not figured out how to make this shut off more basic functions like walking. Or punching Leon in the face. But hey, at least Wonder Woman now no longer has the blessing of Demeter!

The power armor is capable of multiplying the user's strength and durability to magnificent levels. Increases range of sight and hearing, comes with temperature control, air filtering and patented heads-up-display from Stark Industries. Grappling hook/wire gun "2 'n 1" system located on right arm. Located on the left arm as well if purchased during promotional period. Lock system that relies on biometrics renders the suit protected against opportunists. This armor complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this armor may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this armor must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Final product may differ from promotional images. Gun not included.

Intelligence: 2
Strength: 2 (6 with armor on!)
Speed: 2 (3 with armor on!)
Durability: 2 (6 with armor on!)
Energy Projection: 1 (1 with armor on! Leon didn't want to pay for Lepursol Blast feature. Bad reviews online.)
Fighting Skills: 2 (4 with armor on! This model came with free martial arts sequences programmed in.)

Skills: Browsing shady websites to buy black market products. Setting up shady-looking websites to offer black-market services. Looking like an unassuming civilian. Fast-learner. Works well with others.
Crimes: Aiding/abetting known fugitives. Obstruction of justice. Operating a business without a license.
Enemies: Thor, Flash.

Leon himself didn't know when this specific power arrived on his doorstep. All that he knew was that he was trapped in a burning building and Spiderman came to bail him out. Only that Spiderman and Leon nearly splattered to the ground when Spiderman's wall-crawling skills suddenly decided to take a coffee break. An incident where Aquaman suddenly lost ten friendship points with the shark community (He made it out, it's okay!) after a friendly finger-tap didn't cement his belief that this was more than a coincidence yet, though.

But an idea popped into his head after he took a personalized photo with Iron Man (both of them popping out V for Victory signs) and the Armored Avenger could still fly/boost/repulsor to his heart's content in the immediate minutes that followed. A test of the theory launched the career of Parity, the superhero who's built to take down rampaging super villains! Alas, Parity's career soon fizzled out when Leon discovered that being good and being paid for being good doesn't happen unless you're a rich, intelligent superstar.

Thus paved the way for BLOODLETTER. A real American dream come true with his first gig. Playing a silly hostage on a bank-robbery paid rather well when the hostage's hug proceeded to turn Flash into a dude in red tights who can't chase down a Ford Transit. And hey, who knew that said hostage was working for the robbers?

Batman, apparently.

After assisting in several similar heists, Leon had become rich enough to be able to order an Iron Man knockoff suit from Hong Kong. Comes with its own power source guaranteed to not run out for the next 100 years! Complete with positive reviews from ("It's like Stark Industries themselves sanctioned it!") and so many bonuses. Money makes a fine substitute for training or super-powers, right? His next job with the suit? Irrelevant, 'cause Batman hacked into the suit and told it to open up the helmet. Then, he proceeded to show BLOODLETTER that pure detective muscle isn't a superpower. All in front of Main Street. Minutes/hours/days/weeks later, Leon wakes up on somewhere that isn't Gotham. Or Earth.

* - Warranty voided if third party known as "BATMAN"/"IRON MAN"/"GREEN LANTERN" interferes.

The concept is alright, but you can't inhibit people's abilities. That is unbalanced. To shut down someone like Wonder Woman's abilities, you need magic and high order magic at that. Being able to shut off people's powers, especially from an aura? I can't allow that.
