Thanks Aiden, my last note would be to remove the section regarding Bruce's feelings about finding out about his son. I'd like to keep that secret for now.

Let me know when you have some ideas for powers! My recommendation would be to give him a Joker-esk Arsenal of equipment and gadgets.

Fiend Frenzy
Bradley Dawkins



Origin Story:  Bradley's father, the original Tasmanian Devil, struggled with the news that he was to be a father.  He worried that any child might carry with it the burden of his powers, forcing it to deal with the consequences of an, admittedly dubious, gift.  He, himself, had initially raged against his own abilities, and the bestial instincts that came with the shift.  It was difficult to learn to live with the animal inside, and he hated to think of his own child being forced to struggle in the way he once had.  But, despite his best efforts and the miracle of modern contraceptives, the matter was taken out of his hands.

The first twelve years of Bradley's life were fairly typical, or as typical as one's life can be when their father is a superhero.  Especially a were-Tasmanian devil superhero.  Which is to say, not typical at all.  Still, things got much more complicated when he started going through puberty.  For most boys this time of their life is hellish, all pimples, hormones and growing pains.  For Bradley, the biological nightmare was considerably more intense.  They simply do not cover waking up to find your sheets torn to shreds, or your ears suddenly going all furry and pointed, in health class.  Hugh had been a full-grown adult when he gained the ability to shift between his forms, so he had no idea how the actual process of growing into one's were-form would go.  Still, he was able to provide some much-needed support for his teenage were-devil.

Bradley was definitely not Michael J. Fox, and his high school experience was wildly different from Teen Wolf.  Still, he somehow managed to retain his humor throughout the uncomfortable transition from human boy, to meta-human adult.  His clever mind and sense of humor served him well, and he graduated with grades that would have secured him a place in most universities, had he any desire to get a higher education.  No, instead he decided to follow in his father's footsteps.  The old man wasn't getting any younger and his fighting days were rapidly coming to an end.  Bradley enlisted his father to teach him how to put his powers to their best use, to control the shifts and the inner animal.

Little did Bradley know that the end was nearer than he ever expected.  Prometheus attacked and captured his father, skinned him and then placed him in stasis, which is where he remains for the moment.  As far as anyone else knows, though, Hugh is dead.  Bradley mourned his father's passing, though any child of a superhero will tell you that they live with the knowledge that every battle could be the last.  Every villain could be the one that ends it all.  That doesn't make the reality any easier to bear.

Now, Bradley fights for his father, to protect the parents and children who should never feel the pain he has felt, or the fear that he remembers from his own childhood.  He yearns to rid the world of all villains, all threats, so no boy ever has to lay in bed and pray that his father will come home.

Home City:  Born in Sydney, Australia.

Civilian Appearance/Style Description: Bradley favors casual attire, in the form of jeans, t-shirts and sneakers.  He's often been accused of woeful lack of personal grooming, due to his perpetually disheveled hair, wrinkled clothing and eternal five-o-clock shadow.  Even in his human form, however, no matter how laid-back and easy-going he may strive to appear, he moves with an uncanny dexterity and economy of movement, his steps making little to no sound.  He sometimes falls into an eerily preternatural stillness, like a predator stalking prey, almost without seeming to realize he is doing so.  Behind laughing brown eyes, lurks the animal within, always ready and waiting to be unleashed.

Costume Description: Fiend Frenzy doesn't really have a costume.  He shifts and Bradley's physical form alters greatly, becoming far more muscular, with a pelt of thick, black fur and small, pointed ears.  The only aspect of his appearance that one might consider 'costume' would be the signature white T on his chest and abdomen, but that's just a natural aspect of Tasmanian devil anatomy. 
     
Personality:  Bradley is clever, quick-witted and laid-back.  The fact that he doesn't seem to take much seriously and spends half his time on pursuits of a less than productive nature, has been the cause of some friction with the more...studious and upright of his companions.  He's been known to fall into indecipherable Australian slang, with a notable intensification of his accent, whenever confronted by accusations of being a slacker or the source of some prank or another.  His perpetual grin and glittering eyes make it difficult for him to appear innocent, even if he is, since he finds the reactions of certain individuals to such things highly amusing.  Despite this, he is a demon in a fight, and when shifted his bestial nature makes for a more serious personality, though also a highly volatile and temperamental ally.  He is very cautious about his own temper, and often responds to serious confrontation between himself and his companions by trying to diffuse the tension.  If he does become angry, he will typically extract himself from the situation by whatever means necessary, to avoid losing control.  His greatest fear is losing his temper, or his self-control, and hurting one of his friends, or an innocent.

Powers/Weapons: Bradley's powers rely entirely upon his ability to shift into his meta-human Tasmanian Devil form.  When in that form, he has enhanced speed, strength, sharp claws, razor teeth and powerful jaws that allow for a punishing bite force.  His thick hide and tightly compacted musculature also serve to provide a measure of natural armor.  He also gains a far greater ability to track, or investigate, using scent.

Therianthropy: He can transform at will into a giant Tasmanian Devil, in which form he has razor sharp claws and fangs.
Superhuman Strength
Superhuman Speed: He can move fast enough to dodge bullets.
Claws: His claws can cut through steel.
Fangs
Natural Armor
Superhuman Sense of Smell

Weakness:  While shifted, Bradley's connection with his baser, more animal instincts is far stronger than when he is in his human form.  This makes him more vulnerable to mental attacks, since his willpower and higher reasoning is already at the mercy of his own bestial nature.

Howdy everyone! I know applications are closed right now, but I wanted to go ahead and submit in case a spot opens over the next couple weeks.

The Beast
Henry Locke



Origin Story: Henry as he prefers to be called was born deep in a Cadmus cloning facility, an experiment to fuse human DNA with DNA from one of the Justice League's greatest threats ever- Doomsday. While the experiment was ultimately successful the function wasn't quite as intended. As the human DNA served as host, Henry's physical form is almost totally normal. However during moments of extreme pain or stress the latent mutant Kryptonian DNA activates transforming into a monstrosity similar but smaller in scale to the original horror. During a botched raid on the facility by sources unknown the power grid failed releasing the young meta into a hostile environment which triggered his transformation and the ultimate annihilation of the entire campus. The destruction would have likely continued unabated if not for the quick intervention of the Justice League who managed to defeat and return Henry to his human form. Unsure what to do with such a potentially dangerous individual, Henry spent several months imprisoned by the League for everyone's safety. While in his human form Henry proved to be docile enough, quickly taking to studying and discussing philosophy with anyone willing to engage him. After a time Henry began to show signs of learning to control his ability willingly prompting the league to instate him with the Justice Heroes under a very watchful eye. 

Home City: None as Henry rarely travels without escort.

Civilian Appearance/Style Description: Henry stands at 6'0 feet tall and weighs approximately 200 pounds, he has a wide but strong figure similar to a  young NFL linebacker. His hair is black and his eyes blue. When not on mission he can be found lazing about in shorts and a sleeveless shirt.

Costume Description: While on mission and still in his human form Henry wears no mask and black reinforced tactical pants and boots. On his torso he wears a heavy metal vest that seems strangely cumbersome. When he transforms into The Beast his physical features quickly devolve into that of Doomsday though a smaller less pronounced version, with his size growing, skin turning grey, and dense sharp bones bursting out from each joint forming a razor sharp exoskeleton. His vest activates upon transforming firing thick straps of hybrid titanium across his limbs restricting his movement and strength as a safety fallback should he lose control.
     
Personality: Empathetic and easy to smile, Henry is the kind of guy who can be anyone's friend. While he is realistic about what sort of expectations an abomination like he can have about life he lives for new experiences and deeply hopes to one day trust himself to be free in the world.

Powers/Weapons (Henry innately retains each of his abilities even in his human form, though at only 25% of his fully transformed capability)

Super Strength - The Beast's muscular density is extremely high. His physical output and strength astronomically exceeds that of humans. He can also achieve feats such as super-leaping which comes from his enhanced strength, though he is incapable of flight.
Super Speed - Despite his large size, The Beast can move, react and respond at superhuman speeds that cannot be easily followed.
Regeneration - The Beast can recover and heal himself from any physical injury at a rapid pace.
Razor Exoskeleton - The bone spurs that project from his joints after transforming are dense and sharp enough to pierce flesh, bone, and basic metals.

Weakness:

Kryptonite - Thanks to his partially Kryptonian DNA, Henry shares a weakness for the pale green element like Superman.
Restrictive Vest - As an insurance policy the Justice League provided Henry a vest made of the strongest metals which activates on his transformation restricting his abilities.
Beast Rage - Once transformed Henry's mental state becomes a ticking time bomb. Should he stay in the form too long he runs the risk of losing control and mindlessly attacking anything he sees moving.

Re-opening recruitment for this game for anyone who would like to join!

We have made a major change. The game will now be totally free-form, instead of being GM driven! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Ok, so, I might be interested...Are you still recruiting? And if so, I just have one more question:

Is it strictly OC, or can I take on the role of a Canon Character? If the latter, would I be able to play around with AU / Time Hopping shenanigans?

It is strictly OC, and time traveling shenanigans are fine depending on what we want to get out of it.

If we want to just have like a "old Wild West" episode, that's totally fine. But if you want to have it where things changed in the past affect the present day, that requires consent from me as the GM first, then from all of the players once I approve the idea.

Hrm, ok....well, would it change things if the character I wanted to create was effectively an OC?

Basically, what I wanted to do was play Mar'i Grayson - Starfire and Dick Graysons future daughter - from an AU, who ended up falling into this universe. She only appeared in one fairly short comic run, so her character was never really all that defined, and she's generally considered as a "What If" character and therefore kinda non-canon. Basically...I wanted to play Starfires daughter, and figured that since a "What If" character exists, I could take on her persona and alter the personality to my liking since there's not much on her. Would that....change the answer at all? :P Basically, can I play the kind-of-but-not-really-canon daughter of Starfire from an AU? :P


EDIT:

I'm not trying to be obstinate here, I'm just clarifying that I don't mean somebody established like WW or Bats or somebody like that...I'm talking about somebody who made one appearance (practically speaking) and then kinda disappeared and whose existence was never mentioned again. If the answer is still no, then I'll go and think about it some more, I just have some Commissioned Art of Mar'i that I need to find a use for. >.>

That idea sounds perfectly fine to me Vergil!

Also just another note to your original question about time travel, your AU character reminded me that I would also allow scenes that take place in a AU changed as a result of time travel. Separate from the main universe where the game takes place.

SWEET! C&Ping and Editing the bio now!



== Character Bio ==









== Personal Information ==

Legal Name: Mar'i Grayson / Mary Grayson / Mary Gray.
Alias: Nightstar
Age: 23
Sexuality: Bisexual
Residing In: Gotham Mid-Town (sometimes).


== Physical Description ==

Mar'i Grayson stands at roughly 5'11 - inheriting at least some of her mothers height - and is in possession of a slender, athletically curvaceous form thanks both to the rather exquisite genes donated to her by her parents, Dick Grayson and Koriand'r, and the focus that was emphasised in her youth on staying fit and healthy in order to best employ her natural abilities to defend the helpless and the vulnerable. She has long, smooth legs, a slender waist and has inherited her mothers Tamaranian tendency towards generous chests - Earth Measurements place her cup size at a rather shapely, perky set of 32D's - with a smooth and pleasantly shaped face. Long, black hair flows down about her face and shoulders down to her middle back in luscious, healthy curls and frames a pleasingly symmetrical face with a gently angled jawline. Her eyes are ordinarily by all appearances that of a normal human, deeply dazzling emerald green in colour but otherwise ordinary. However, they shift into a more Tamaranian solid green and glow brightly when she is feeling an intense emotion or using her abilities in any way. Much the same as her mother, she has an orange tint to her skin that sets her apart from other females, though thanks to the mixed breeding of her father, her skin is closer to a "natural" human olive than the outright bright orange-pink of a pureblood Tamaranian.

Civilian Wear:

Mar'i tends to favour jeans or short skirts and t-shirts when walking around town in her normal attire, thanks to their lack of restriction to movement compared to a dress and their comfort; she finds herself more at home in more "tomboyish" clothing than "girly girly" stuff, though she has been known to slip on a slinky dress if going somewhere posh or nice. She enjoys shopping despite her more tomboyish tastes, simply because she loves all of the choice that is afforded her in the Gotham high street, but she won't go anywhere near high heels unless going to a formal function; they're very, very difficult to move in and if she learned anything from Bruce, it was that mobility is always key.

Superheroine Wear:

Her costume is very, very simple; it's a single-piece purple half-robe, half-leotard like article of clothing, covering just her groin and backside in order to give her as much freedom in her legs as possible and stretching up and out to reveal an ample amount of cleavage in a low-cut V shape before cresting the shoulders and flowing down her arms in a pair of purple loose-ish fitting sleeves that end in blue arm bracers. Her outfit is accentuated here and there by bits of blueish-indigo trimmings and in one place, a belt, and she tends to use a Tamaranian-style circlet of the same colour with a purple star set into it over her forehead and around her scalp to hold her hair out of her face when fighting and flying. She tends to also wear a pair of dark purple and blueish-indogo-trimmed, thigh high boots to protect the soles of her feet and her lower legs.


== Persona ==

Despite her complicated past and her rather unique circumstances, Mar'i tries to retain the outgoing, good natured persona that she left her own timeline with, despite all the hardships. She tries to offer support to those she considers friends, and believes that loyalty, honesty and dependability are the most important things that you can offer those you love. She is very strict in her high standards, holding others to them just as much as she does herself, probably due in large part to her own experiences with the matter. Being a young girl of the "Next Generation" and being from a family with a kind, understanding mother - from what Mar'i can remember, anyway - and a distant, if caring, father, Mar'i is a bit more free with her sexuality than you would imagine from a woman of her age and her alien heritage. Being raised on Earth of course helped that latter issue, but she is - despite her sexual liberation - afraid and wary of getting emotionally close to anybody in this timeline, for obvious reasons given her history. She is loyal but slow to trust, passionate in her interests and intense in her desires but guarded about her own identity - she can't let anybody know who she really is, for fear of what might happen to the timestreams - and fiercely determined to live up to the values and beliefs of those she left behind. She forcibly keeps a cheerful disposition despite the ennui that she feels inside sometimes, and though she largely keeps a brave front up, she is susceptible to bouts of depression and melancholy which is, perhaps, to be expected. Despite her friendly nature, she has a certain edge to her that sometimes makes her come across as a little harsh in her dealings with people, and definitely makes her seem a tad overzealous when fighting criminals and supervillains. She hasn't seriously hurt anybody yet, but she apparently doesn't know how to hold her anger and sorrow in check enough to hold herself back in a fight. Similarly, if somebody breaches trust or betrays family or anything that goes contrary to what she holds dear, they'll soon know just how quickly that friendly disposition can change into one of unimpressed iciness and sometimes outright fury. She may be friendly...but she's far from a pushover, and she has that edge to her that makes her more dangerous than you may otherwise think.

Though she has largely given up on returning home, she has pointedly and determinedly not lost hope; she will make her own life in this new Timeline, and try to prevent the same thing that ruined her old home from happening in this one. She has taken up a job as a waitress in a burger restaurant close to where she lives - and the crime rate has mysteriously sharply dropped since her arrival; imagine that - and lives in a one-bedroom apartment just down the street. She makes enough money from her job and her tips - she's a very good waitress, and knows just who to flirt with to get a bit extra; just because she's good natured doesn't mean she won't take advantage of the obvious tricks of the trade...a gal needs to eat, after all! - to get by, and her "night life" both social and Vigilante provides plenty of chances for excitement and meeting new people. She's content, for the moment, while she figures out her long term plan. She misses her home...but she's stuck in this Timeline, so she may as well make the most of it. It's what her family would want for her.


== Powers And Abilities ==

- Tamaranean Physiology: As a Tamaranean, Mar'i has the same abilities as her mother, Koriand'r, that are granted by to her alien physiology. However, she is markedly weaker than her mother due to the dilution of her genetics with a human (Dick). These are, specifically, as follows:

-- Nightstar's physiology means that her body constantly absorbs ultraviolet radiation from her surroundings and converts it internally into energy.

-- Energy Absorption: Nightstar is able to absorb the ultraviolet energy from other lifeforms in order to restock her own supply of energy more rapidly and allow her to use larger levels of power at once.

-- Flight: Nightstar is able to use her internal energy to take flight at extreme speeds, though not yet as fast as her mother was able to during her prime. Much like her mother, her flight leaves purple corntrails behind her that appear to originate in her hair.

-- Starbolts: What was done to her mother was done on the genetic level, meaning that her offspring - Mar'i - can also use versions of her mothers Starbolts, converting the internally collected UV Radiation into powerful external blasts of energy. These Starbolts are slightly stronger than her mothers and more versatile; being born with them has apparently strengthened the Genetic Manipulations effect. She appears to lack the ability to produce the "Nova Blast" that her mother was capable of, however.

-- Superhuman Durability: Thanks to her alien heritage, Nightstar is able to shrug off blows that would incapacitate a normal human. Whilst not as durable as some - for example, Superman or Wonder Woman - she can still walk off wounds that would land normal humans in the hospital.

-- Superhuman Strength: She is able to hit harder and lift heavier weights than her size would suggest. Her mother - in her prime - was able to lift in excess of 100 tons on some occasions....alas, being half-human, Mar'i lacks that sheer physical power though she can still clock in at a respectable 50 tons, if she pushes herself.

-- Language Assimilation: Like her mother and every other Tamaranian, she has the ability to learn new languages through touch, though being a half breed, she cannot do so instantaneously; she must maintain the contact for slightly longer than a full-blooded Tamaranian. She tends to agree with her mothers old philosophy on this one; kissing is, generally speaking, a lot more enjoyable than just touching somebodies hand. Especially if they're cute.

Other:

-- Through intensive training with Bruce Wayne, Nightstar has gained an impressive resistance to mental attacks and psychic readings. Whilst not immune, she is as resistant to it as a non-telepath can be without having a super power specifically directed at it.

-- Her brief time with Bruce Wayne and her few interactions with her father earned her basic lessons in self defence. Whilst she is unlikely to be able to take on people such as Nightwing, Starfire, Ra's Al Ghul or Deathstroke in single hand-to-hand combat with any efficacy, she knows enough to get by.


== Background ==

Mar'i Grayson was born to Koriand'r and Dick Grayson - Starfire and Nightwing (Formerly Red Robin) - on 27th April, 2027 in a small town just outside Metropolis. Her early life was relatively quiet as Koriand'r and Dick attempted to raise her in a normal, quiet, peaceful environment whilst striving to teach her about her powers as she grew up rather than leaving her to figure them out on her own. She went to pre-school, then primary school, played with her friends and only occasionally wondered where her parents went every so often in the middle of the night. Her parents, for their part, mostly retired from Vigilante work - only going on occasional patrols if they heard something unsettling, or only going after specific criminals if they passed through - in order to avoid orphaning their daughter. Ironically, it wasn't a super villain or a gang war or a secret government organisation that ended up doing that; it was nature. When Mar'i was only eleven years old, Koriand'r was diagnosed with an untreatable, unknown alien version of circulatory disease. Despite copious donations from the Wayne Empire and dozens of favours being called in from the extended Justice League family, Koriand'r passed away when Mar'i was only 13. Dick withdrew inside himself at her death, unable to properly cope with losing the woman he thought he would be spending his life with, throwing himself back into his vigilante work as a way to distract himself at the cost of neglecting his daughter. Thankfully, Mari's adopted grandfather Bruce Wayne - who knew first hand what it was like growing up without parents - stepped in to effectively raise the girl on his own, doing his best to reinforce and cultivate the values of loyalty, kindness and compassion that her parents had started to instil in her...of course, some of Bruce Wayne's own old personality rubbed off on her, and she soon set out as a vigilante in her own right.

When she reached the age of 18 - and after a couple of years of Bruce desperately combating his most dangerous foe yet; a teenage daughter - she had come to not despise her biological father but instead pity him, though their relationship was admittedly rather strained due to his years of neglect. He, to his credit, realised upon meeting her on the streets of Star City how much he had missed and how much he had ended up wallowing in his own self pity, and tried to make amends...but Mar'i was of the opinion that it was too little, too late. Though she didn't dislike her father, she also didn't have time for him. Why should she, when he never made time for her? Unfortunately, the family squabble was about to get worse...when Kansas was destroyed by an unknown assailant, two rival Hero groups emerged from the ashes; Superman stepped out of retirement to reform the Justice League, which Dick joined, and Bruce Wayne similarly re-donned the Cowl to head up "The Outsiders," a group of slightly more shadowy and obscure young heroes whose methods sometimes got under the JL's skin. Just as conflict between the two groups began to boil over into full-scale war...history diverged, as it so often does. Brainiac, finally recovered from his final defeat at the hands of the JLA and the united heroes of Earth thirty years previously, returned and attacked the Earth. Over the course of two years, the JL and The Outsiders were forced to put aside their differences to fight against him...and soon enough, Mar'i and Dick were, after a fashion, reconciled after Bruce Wayne fell in battle and Dick managed to retreat with a screaming Mar'i over his shoulder.

Whilst Brainiac was eventually defeated...it took the life of Dick, too, only half a year after he and his daughter had begun to rebuild their relationship. Mar'i was devastated and, in a typical display of raw Tamaranian rage, attempted to attack the remnants of Brainiacs exploding ship in an attempt to ensure that he was really, truly dead this time...and the Quantum Drive chose that exact moment to detonate, flooding the space above Earth with hundreds of different variations of radiation, most of which was at that point completely unknown to humankind. The explosion caught Mar'i in a Quantum Fluctuation that tore a hole in space and time and pushed her through it, through to an entirely different version of reality. She found herself not only in a different time - 2015, to be precise - but a completely different timeline where Brainiac hadn't yet attacked and where Dick Grayson had not settled down with her mother, Koriand'r. Crucially for Mar'i...all her loved ones were alive. Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson....Koriand'r. But it was....different. These people were not her family, not the people she knew and she couldn't fully convince herself that these people would serve as adequate replacements to what she lost. This Bruce Wayne was not her firm-but-loving grandfather; he was a tough, brooding, brutal vigilante. This Dick Grayson was not her flawed-but-noble father, struggling to make amends for his mistakes; he was a still-fresh, idealistic youth with his entire life ahead of him. Kori wasn't her doting, loving, sweet mother...she was a carefree young woman in the prime of her life, enjoying her youth while she could. These people, whilst wearing familiar faces, were utter strangers to her and she couldn't bring herself to see them as anything more than pale imitations of what she once knew. The pain of seeing them so close and yet so far, the ache of saying hello and not being recognised by her own family...the thought was too much to bear. And so she ran. She ran far away from them, sinking into a deep ennui as she tried to figure out what her place was in this new, strange, lonely world...this literal universe where nobody knew or cared about her at all.

But one day, she snapped. She was buying milk at the local grocery store when a youth - barely 18, by her reckoning - held the owner up at gunpoint and attempted to rob the place. Mar'i could have stepped in, fists and Starbolts swinging, but she recognised that desperate, wild look...that lonely, guarded posture he held...he was scared, he was desperate and he was doing the only thing he could think of to alleviate his pain. And so...she talked to him. Listened to him. It might sound naive, but on this occasion, she managed to persuade him that it wasn't what he wanted or needed, that he needed to leave quietly and think carefully about what he actually needed....and she, in that moment five months after she first arrive, realised what she needed; she was a hero at heart, and the emptiness she felt inside would only be filled by doing what she loved, what she was meant to do, and through it, gaining new friends and family. It would be tough and she would never truly replace her family, but she would not dishonour their memory any more than she already had by wallowing in self pity and despair. She was lonely, yes...but she didn't have to be. Neither of her parents or her grandfather would want that, and even if she never saw them again, she would do them proud. That was what she wanted, what she needed...to be the woman they would want her to be.

So, she resumed her vigilante work. She spent the next few months getting used to the new world and the new timeline, getting used to the new villains and the familiar yet younger faces around her. She couldn't let her parents know that they're her parents in another timeline - it might screw this one up, for all she knew - so she adopted the last name "Gray" and established a cover as the daughter of a deceased Tamaranean exile who died when she was young...not a lie per say, but far enough away from the truth that nobody should suspect much. Then...she got to work. It is now late 2016, over a year after her first arrival in this universe and she has been extremely busy. She made a great effort to establish herself as a Hero in the community and forge links with the other local heroes in order to try and build a life for herself here...the chances of successfully getting back to the first alternate universe are slim to none, so her friends and family may as well all be dead. She needs to create a new life, a new family, new friends...or she'll never make it through the crushing bouts of despair that hit her when she stops to think about what she's lost.

CyBuster
Jake Gordon



Origin Story: A son to the famous Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl... however most of his childhood didn't feel like he was a 'son'. Due to his sibling being the more 'talented' and more than capable of being the next 'BatGirl', Jake was often left out while the other was being trained to take on the mantle. While he keeps an 'Nah it's okay' style face he's actually extremely bitter about it. To take his mind off of it, he spent most of his free time playing Basketball or more importantly, the bevy of online games he would play with his school friends. It seemed like a simple hobby, however he was trying to play out his own fantasies of being a hero and reaching high scores in order to get SOME kind of recognition. One day however, him and his friends received an invitation to try out a prototype social media service. However upon clicking accept, a blast of light exploded from the computer, sucking the boy inside his computer. Being the only one who actually clicked the 'Accept' button, he had to fend for himself as viruses and harmful programs tried to corrupt him. Thankfully they were soon blasted with the help of a program sent by Victor Stone, AKA Cyborg. While the veteran hero wasn't able to figure the source of the bizarre phenomena, he began giving support to Jake by making programs called 'Buster.Exes' (well Jake calls them that anyway). As Victor worked on a way to bring Jake back into the physical world, the boy was tasked to scan through cyber space to take down viruses and hackers. After about four months of this, Victor was able to bring Jake back to the world... mostly. A malfunction occurred causing Jake's body to be both physical and digital... a sort of living computer. He was still able to use his Buster.Exes. However this does have some caveats... Cyborg strongly advised the 'Digital Human' to join the new generation of heroes. The thought was that while Victor tried to figure a way to fully restore the boy, he could still use his abilities for good.

Home City: Originally from Gotham but due to his 'circumstances' he's been mostly fighting in cyber space. He's only just recently gained a semi physical body thanks for Victor Stone.

Civilian Appearance/Style Description: He stands about 5'6" and weighs about 210. He sports his mother's red hair, although cut kinda short he still keeps it kinda messy. While he seems normal, there are moments in which his digital half begins to show. For example, when he gets cut, the wound will have a faint blue glow to it with white data lines leaking out. Most prominently is that a console command center is always on his left arm. This allows him to access his Buster.Exes and his Buster Form.

Costume Description: See Picture
     
Personality: He tends to come off as bit of a hot head. Always acting before thinking and generally getting into trouble because of it. But when he's around family, he tends to be a bit more withdrawn... possibly due to a rather large inferiority complex. This tends to come up at pretty bad times and because of it, whenever he fails something, he tends to take to pretty hard. However behind that you'll find a very valuable ally.

Powers/Weapons:
Hack Jump: Due to his circumstances, Jake can perform a 'Hack Jump' where he can fully digitize himself and go inside computers and most electronics. Useful for Hacking or for quick traveling.
Buster.Exe
His main armaments. These are various programs given to him by Cyborg that allow him to fight. Only problem right now is that after he was brought back to the real world many of his programs became corrupted or flat out deleted.
Currently he has
Sword.Exe: Manifests a stylish short blade
Gun.Exe: A pistol like weapon with three fire modes
Helper.Exe: Summons a spherical drone that acts as a sentry for him.
Fist.Exe: covers his left arm with a large metal fist.

Currently Victor is working on making more programs for him to use.

Weakness: Due to technically being a computer, Jake can go through the usual issues that most devices go through. These can include overheating, freezing, viruses and even straight out crashing. These can unfortunately become frequent without periodical firmware updates provided by Victor.

@Vergil and Totes, your sheets look great guys! One note about your backstory Vergil. One of our character Zoe Wayne is the biological daughter of Bruce Wayne. Since you are from a AU, it's OK if you want to keep the bit about being raised by Bruce in your backstory. But this universe's Bruce would not treat Mar'i like a daughter, since he has one.

Unless you and Rel want to discuss, and say that Mar'i lives with them or something! It's up to you guys

Minor set back. I should be able to fart one out tomorrow. :P
