Once just a promo salesman for a prototype action figure, when the boss-types decided he'd make a perfect Promotion Hero after a few changes from R&D. He's not sure what happened, exactly, after the surgery.
- Largely human appearance, although with a plastic sheen (including hair, clothing).
- Appears to be made of some kind of viscoelastic material.
- Occupation: Corporate Spokesperson, Bounty Hunter.
- Armor of choice: fists, which transform into a shield (shield), salvaged Inertial Armor.
- Weapons of choice: fists, which can grow comically large due to his plastic nature (light melee), salvaged Freeze Ray.
- Can make short-lived duplicates of himself by distributing above material (not sure how they’re controlled).
- Mourns the passing of each duplicate. Number of duplicates to date: 13.
- Sponsored by a toy-manufacturing cryptic company, “Atom Action, LLC”. Definitely a company man.
- Highly susceptible to Alpha Mutation fluxes. (Iron King, Part 1)
- Shows signs of deep-rooted narcissism. (Iron King, Part 1)
- Fascinated by Omega Technology, less for their impressive short-term features, but for their potential long-term uses. (Iron King, Part 2)
- Beginning to openly resent Matango, a fellow trouble shooter, for having been affected by one of the mushroom man’s more bombastic tactics more than once. (Iron King, Part 2)
- Leads, does not follow – if HE’S taking a nap, then EVERYONE is taking a nap. (Iron King, Part 3)
- Extraordinarily heroic, even in situations where heroism is completely uncalled for. (Heart of Gold)
- Apparently the only one concerned about the well-being of others, even if it’s for long-term profits. (The Eradicator)
