The Villains!!! I'm wondering if I made Doomsday too far-fetched. Though I liked the idea of having a kind of "Darth Vader" guy who's so badly injured he's pretty much just armor. That and he HAD to be a junk-heep assembly of random armor parts as opposed to the usual "smooth" designs where everything actually "fits" to the character.
Birth Name: Nakamara Hanbo Hanzotori
Alias: Hikari Hanzo
Appearance: Thin, pale, shoulder-length stringy black hair, pale blue eyes. Usually wears form-fitting clothing in a formal manner.
Sexual Orientation: Anything and Everything
Skills and Talents: Extortion, Bribery, brief stint in law school helped him master all the loopholes in the system. Leading a massive gang that rules the city, he is also trained in martial arts.
Brief History: Hanzo was a talented youth, while born in Japan, Hanzo's family travelled to America when his father was offered a job at the Hexacorp technology center in New Kephler City. Hanzo surpassed all his classmates in grades but was frequently bullied, which lead him to take up martial arts. After highschool Hanzo joined his father working for Hexacorp. By now his father was the senior VP. Mysteriously the day after Nakamara (now calling himself Hikari) joined Hexcorp, the CEO was found dead in his office, leading the President to take over his position, whilst Hanzo's father was promoted to president of the company. Hanzo himself did quite well in the company and Hexcorp enjoyed success for the next two years, nearly doubling in profits. Eventually Hexcorp was offered a deal to supply the software to NASA for their satalite program as well as rights to supply the US government with a new guided missile system. The CEO refused, wishing Hexcorp to remain a peaceful company that would not participate in "war games". After a private meeting the CEO was found dead, apparently killed by the senior VP before the man comitted suicide. Two other board members testified the truth of the events (being blackmailed to support Hanzo's story) Hanzo's father sealed the weapons deal as the highest ranking member of the board surviving, he then proceeded to fill the new board of directors with friends, including Hikari. Any objectors were fired. The company name was changed to Hanzo Corp. and continued on to enjoy prosperity under the new leadership. However, on the streets gangs began growing restless, many were unemployed after being given meager payments in exchange for killing board members who opposed Hanzo and the weapons deal. While his father managed the company, Hanzo began to orchestrate a deal with the city's gangs. They would begin killing as many officers as they could, then Hanzo would hire the gangsters on as new recruits to the police force, loyal to him. As gang violence decreased property value and forced people from their homes, Hanzo would buy out the land and claim it under Hanzo Corp. then sell it back to the people after moving the gangs to a new location, claiming his areas were safer. Eventually Hanzo would replace his father as CEO of Hanzo Corp. after his father died of cancer.

Brief History: Giren had a normal family life, his father worked in the office while his mother was a child-care provider. But his entire youth troubled his famly, he was known to exhibit antisocial behavior in school, starting fires and breaking things. In highschool Giren only got worse, joining a gang and picking fights, some which he won, others which gained him many of his early scars. He spent 2 years in juvenile rehabilitation. Seemingly reformed Giren returned to school and spent his remaining two years doing well in class. It was on his 18th birthday Giren made his first kill. His girlfriend at the time grew fearful of his activities and threatened to tunr him into the police. Giren killed her but failed to hide the body before his parents caught him. After the confrontation Giren proceeded to kill them too. Giren spent the next few years moving around, squatting among apartments of the people he killed. Finally Giren was caught and taken to prison. After 5 years rotting, Hanzo offered him a deal, Giren would be freed in exchange for killing off people Hanzo needed taken care of, so Giren became a gun for hire.
Birth Name: Vincent (Ven) Michael Latchley
Appearance: Large frame standing almost 7 foot tall due to his armor, his body underneath is much smaller. He's covered in scars and missing a leg from the knee down which has been replaced by a prosthetic. He formerly had brown eyes and brown hair before he was mutilated by the fire. Doomsday uses various test equipment so his armored form changes often and always remains asymetrical, like it's been thrown together from various scraps as opposed to a consistant streamlined design.
Sexual Orientation: Asexual
Skills and Talents: Covered in bulletproof armor. Self-taught in hand-to-hand combat, slightly enhanced strength from the machinery built into his armor.
Brief History: Vincent was your typical kid. He was a star football player in highschool and made decent grades. After graduating he worked at a small-time grocery store as cashier and eventually assistant manager. That was, until the store mysteriously caught fire one evening. Vincent tried to escape but one of the shelves collapsed, jamming the door from the outside of the manager's office with Vincent trapped inside. Doctors considered it a miracle that he survived after the building collapsed on him. With half a leg gone, Vincent lost all hope in ever going to college on a football scholarship. To make matters worse his parents were left with a large medical bill they had no means to pay off. Thinking of easing their burden Vincent thought of taking his life, but he was caught in the act by one of the nurses who had connections to Hanzo Corp. Vincent was told that if he worked for Hanzo, the payment would be given to his family, in turn Vincent would recieve free treatment from Hanzo's top doctors, unfortunately his business with Hanzo would need him to be marked as dead. And so Vincent Latchley was pronounced dead from injuries recieved in the fire, and Doomsday was born. After rehabilitation and recieving a prosthetic leg, Doomsday resumed work for Hanzo, namely in testing new weapons and other devices such as flack jackets and equipment for Hanzo's thugs. But as cops began to disappear and Hanzo began to notice a reasonable threat to his power, he turned to Doomsday needing a new kind of fighter to go against these masked vigilantes. Doomsday would track down these people using his test equipment and put a stop to them, once and for all.
