Name: Jack Ryder
Alias: The Creeper
Personality: Jack Ryder is a well-known, outspoken talk show host and anchor, who aggressively antagonizes his guests in pursuit of the truth. His controversial show, aptly named "You are Wrong!", is popular in Gotham, discussing the kind of hot topics usually avoided on talk shows.
However, Ryder can willing give in to a deranged side of himself known as the Creeper, a yellow-skinned, green haired vigilante, with more than a few loose screws. By releasing his bestial alter-ego, Ryder can effectively fight crime in Gotham City, with the Creeper's physical strengths and his psychotic, maniacal personality being enough to terrorize hardened criminals.
Profession: As the host of his own talk show, following his original career as an investigative reporter, Jack Ryder can afford a comfortable living.
Investigative journalism. Ryder has a nose for a story, and will go far in the pursuit of the truth.
Hand-to-hand combat. The Creeper's style of fighting is wacky, agile and unpredictable, using his impressive physical strength to his advantage. He uses the techniques of a brawler, all while bouncing around opponents with ease.
Metahuman Abilities: The Creeper is strong enough to hurl around a grown man, knocking them flying with a single punch. He can perform amazing acrobatic acts, scaling walls and leaping up buildings with little to no difficulty. He posses enhanced regeneration, allowing him to recover from gunshot and stab wounds in minutes.
History: Whilst pursuing a story, reporter Jack Ryder followed the Joker into the ACE chemicals building, where he was ambushed, dosed with the madman's signature laughing gas, and hurled into a vat of toxic chemicals. The talk-show host was washed out with the disfiguring chemicals, escaping into the night. His mind was twisted, his body stronger, and his skin and hair scarred yellow and green. This was the beginning of his Creeper persona, which he took to using to terrorize criminals, and antagonizing the Joker whenever possible. Jack Ryder discovered he could unleash his deranged alter-ego at will, although sharing his body with the insane superhero has began taking a toll on his sanity.
Other: The Creeper has several origin stories, and I chose my favourite. Hope it isn't a problem with anyone.
Writing Sample: Working on it. Should be finished for tomorrow.
I'll join if that's OK.
Was thinking of going with a civ mechanic/engineer type character (of sorts) that is pretty good at what he does...
Might be interesting to see what happens with him!
Anyone have any objections to this?
If not, i'll post my CS as soon as I can!
Holder of the Cowl
No objections, here. I'm interested in seeing the CS.
I think I might have to leave this one guys, after thinking about it, I don't feel comfortable playing canon characters. Never have. Never felt like I can do them justice.
Nothing against you guys, and I hope you enjoy your RP anyway
