Here's Bobcat, an NPC hero of mine. He's one of the "new" breed of heroes who started appearing in the late 70's/early 80's. Taking up the mangle from Silver Age heroes like the Hound.

Origin/Background: Mark Lawson is the son villainous Wildcat, and her then lover, the underworld assassin Die Hard. Inheriting some of both his parents natural abilities, his mother raised him in secret, as she no longer wished to have anything to do with the criminal world after his birth. He left home at 17 in order to find his own way in the world, before eventually joining up with a group of young West Coast based heroes known as Catalyst. He eventually earned a place with the team and hasn't look back since.

Combat Tactics: Bobcat's a HTH scrapper. He likes things up close and personal. The first time he encounters an opponent, he'll hold an action and try to evaluate them (his weakness detection ability), but if it's a foe he's encountered before, he'll jump right into the mix without hesitating.

Personality/Character Traits: Bobcat is a tough as nails, take no gruff brawler. He's loyal to a fault, and usually the first one jump in to save someone else.

I like him... he kinda favors ..you know who.. but I like that his powers are not OP and his story does not try to embrace everything.  A nice cut & dry character with a solid not too long background.  Cool, and well done!

Yes he's a riff on certain Canadian Mutant, but his origin story and powers are different. He does however fill the roll of a gruff, no BS brawler, who's been around the block a few times.

I'm glad you guys seem to like him, and feel free to make use of him in your games. If enough people ask for it, I may get around to posting a few more members of his little band of heroes as well.

I did a slight bit of tinkering with him to clean up some stuff.

Just out of curiosity, any of you guys used him in a game? If so, I'd really like to hear how it went.
