Real Name: Robert (Bobby) Anderson
A Kansas farm boy destined to live out his days in the same small town, Bobby had his life changed when he went to stay with
his aunt in Los Angeles one summer when he was 16. Returning home with a brand new attitude it took less than a year for
Bobby to get thrown out of his house by his father. Wandering aimlessly, Bobby eventually fell in with an anarchist group
and joined their commune (at the time Booby thought Anarchy meant wild parties and lots of sex).
Bobby began to rethink his views on anarchy when he saw the rigid discipline starting to be enforced. The
poor Kansas boy had no idea he'd become part of a militant group intent on overthrowing the U.S. government. But Booby was
a curious lad and started poking around where he shouldn't, especially the building near the middle of the compound which
had become the center of activity. For days Bobby watched as the group's leaders met with strangers, some with obvious super
powers, in the building. Eventually Bobby snook in and found himself in Heaven. The place was some kind of arsenal, full of
weapons and armored suits, from medieval plate to futuristic looking battle armor. One item, a vicious full-suit of armor
with a massive morningstar attached, caught his attention. Trying it on, Bobby discovered it technologically advanced, but
had a computerized menu system that explained its abilities. That night Bobby took the armor and left the commune for good.
Bobby traveled to LA with his new toy and spent his nights robbing banks and playing bass in various bands.
He met Psytron in a bar and the two became friends. Eventually they linked up with Sorceress and Necrovore to form Deathwish.
Powers & Abilities:
While a reasonably good guitarist, Bobby's main asset is the Demolition Man armor he took from the anarchist group. Judging
by its power level, the armor was likely to be one of the main weapons of the anarchists' attempted coup. The battlesuit
itself is now bonded to Bobby, and has been since he first tried it on. While it can not be removed from Bobby, the armor
does have the ability to partially shunt itself into another dimension, rendering itself invisible and intangible. The
battlesuit is always around, though, ready to rematerialize around its host at a moment's notice. The battlesuit grants its
wearer superhuman strength and the armor is strong enough to withstand anything short of an air-to-ground missile strike.
The helmet has night vision enhancements and the suit can also travel through solid earth as easily as a person might swim
through water. The morningstar has no special abilities, but it made of the same super-strong material as the suit and when
wielded with the battlesuit's enhanced strength it is a devastating weapon.
Real Name: Morwena (Amanda Carazone)
Amanda Carazone lived the good life, raised in the lap of luxury thanks to her family's wealth. At age 21, while away at a
prestigious girl's college, the good life abandoned her. Actually it was her father, a New England politician, that
abandoned her, leaving the country (and Amanda and her mother) with his secretary and all the money. Amanda suddenly found
herself on the streets, penniless. Confused and alone, Amanda was found by members of a mystical cult. Unknown to Amanda,
she possessed latent mystical abilities. Recognizing the girl's potential, the cult's leaders (who were part of the
Black Moon Society) had the girl brought in.
For the next year Amanda learned to harness her magical abilities, becoming a powerful sorceress. Eager to
return to the lifestyle she had been accustomed to, Amanda left the cult (amicably) and traveled to Los Angeles. There she
got a job as a singer in a night club in a ritzy hotel. She hoped to use her beauty and powers to take advantage of the
wealthy men who stayed in the hotel. It was at the hotel that she met Necrovore, who was playing with the Los Angeles
Symphony at the time. He recognized her talent as a singer and suggested they work together. Finding herself attracted to
him, Amanda agreed and at Necrovore's suggestion she adopted the stage name of Morwena. A short time later the pair met
Psytron and Demolition Man, and Deathwish was born.
Powers & Abilities:
Morwena is an accomplished sorceress and has a variety of spells at her disposal. She has been seen to transform herself
into a hawk, render herself intangible, control the weather, hypnotize others, paralyze opponents, generate brilliant
flashes of light or massive explosions, and also has some healing spells. Morwena is also a talented singer, dancer, and
Real Name: Frank Birmingham
Unlike his teammates, Frank Birmingham is a normal human, albeit a very gifted one. A genius and Olympic caliber athlete,
Frank's true passion has always been music. A brilliant composer, Frank worked with symphonies across the country (though
he secret love has always been rock and roll music). Frank was working in LA, hoping to start a career as a rock musician
when he met Amanda (The Sorceress). The two paired up and were soon joined by Psytron and Demolition Man, forming the core
of Deathwish. Though he more than makes up for his lack of powers with his organizational skills, Frank has another thing
that separates him from his teammates; he is more concerned with the group's musical career than their criminal one. He
makes a point to donate 25% of his ill-gotten gains to charity.
Powers & Abilities:
Necrovore is what used to be called a renaissance man. He is a talented athlete and possesses a black belt in Judo, can
operate any man-made vehicle short of the space shuttle, is an expert marksman with most modern firearms and heavy weapons,
and is a certified genius. Necrovore is an expert computer programmer and hacker, has keen observation and detective skills,
and is a master thief. Frank is also incredibly gifted artistically, he is a master painter, photographer, writer, composer,
Real Name: H.I. Jynx (Harold Johnson)
Harry's telepathic abilities first started surfacing when he was 13. His ability to read the thoughts and emotions made him
an expert negotiator and he dreamed of becoming a lawyer or diplomat. He had another dream, though, of being a drummer in a
rock and roll band. Torn between his two passions, Harry compromised, attending UCLA. This allowed him to study law while
being at the heart of the Los Angeles music scene. The idea of being a criminal never entered into Harry's mind until the
day he met Bobby Alexander (see Demolition Man). Harry eagerly adopted Bobby's wild lifestyle and neglected his studies.
Eventually the pair met up with Morwena and Frank and Deathwish was born. At Necrovore's suggestion, Harry adopted the
stage name of H.I. Jynx. Sadly, the years of living the life of a superstar have left Psytron with an addiction to cocaine.
Powers & Abilities:
Psytron is a powerful psionic. He can read another person's thoughts and emotions, hypnotize or take outright control of
them, or fire bolts of mental energy straight into a target's mind with potentially lethal force. Psytron can also
teleport himself and others, but it is extremely draining and he usually can't manage it more than once a day.
Real Name: Eddie Traynor
Eddie is the classic California teenager, he bleaches his hair, surfs, roller-blades, and has been playing guitar since he
was seven years old. When he hit puberty Eddie found he had a few more special talents, namely the power to fly, control
the winds, and turn himself invisible. He was having a serious time fighting the urge to use his powers to commit crimes
when the opportunity of a lifetime came up: his favorite band, Deathwish, were having open auditions for a new guitarist,
the old one having died in a freak spontaneous combustion accident. Eddie tried out and got the job, mostly on talent,
though the fact that Psytron had read his mind and learned of his metahuman powers didn't hurt Eddie's chances. For Eddie,
being with Deathwish is a dream come true. Not only is he playing with the greatest band in the world, he is also a part of
a veteran super-villain team.
Powers & Abilities:
Whirlwind has the mutant ability to control wind, allowing him to fly at supersonic speeds, create powerful gusts of wind,
and even generate tornado-like vortices. He can also become invisible, not only to the naked eye but to most mechanical
means of detection as well. Whirlwind's physiology is also enhanced to allow him to survive flight at supersonic speed,
which has the added advantage of making him pretty much bulletproof.
