Universe of Origin: Mecha
A fusion of Krypton and Earth technology, Mecha Superman is a
massive hero with an even bigger heart.
By connecting a crashed Kryptonian space probe to his
family’s enormous agrobot, young Clark Kent created an
unexpected new robot. Clark named him KAL and tried teaching him
about being human, mostly through an imaginary game called
“Superman”. This hero, played by Clark, could right
every wrong, yet K.A.L. never understood the game’s purpose.
Everything changed when, walking home from school, Clark was killed
by a drunk driver. The grief taught K.A.L. why humans dreamed of
heroes, and he took on the name and mission of Superman, in honor
of the friend he lost.
A massive Enforcer, Mecha Superman fights with metal tonnage
able to fissure the very ground and even create earthquakes.
Child of an Atlantean Queen and lighthouse keeper, Aquaman
defends two worlds while feeling at home in neither.
Arthur Curry’s life was forever altered when the media
discovered an “Aquaman” from Atlantis living in a
coastal town in Maine. This news reached the infamous treasure
hunter, Black Manta, whose obsession with Atlantean relics
eventually led to the death of Arthur’s father. In his grief,
Arthur abandoned the surface and claimed his rightful place as King
of Atlantis. After years of squabbling and intrigues, Arthur tired
of the court and returned to the surface with his love, Mera, where
he protects both worlds, yet feeling at home in neither.
Aquaman is a strong duelist who wields the Atlantean
King’s Trident to great effect in combat.
To atone for his past failings and behavior, Green Arrow took up
hood and bow in the name of justice.
Oliver Queen was nothing more than a spoiled socialite…
until pirates attacked his extravagant party at sea. Eluding
capture he launched a sneak attack but, having shirked archery
lessons, was a poor shot. His arrow missed, triggering a
pirate’s dead-man switch and killing dozens in the following
explosion. Thrown into the ocean, Oliver washed ashore sometime
later on to a deserted island, where circumstance forced him to
survive with bow and arrow alone. When rescued much later, Oliver
committed to making things right and became Green Arrow.
A Marksman armed with bow and a quiver of specialised arrows,
Green Arrow aims to gain the upper hand in combat.
