Relentlessly bullied in his youth, Percy van Norton shelled out a remarkable amount of money to buy an experimental drug that increased his strength to super-human levels - though it lowered his intelligence at the same time. He can be considered an altered human.

Known Powers:

Body Armor: other than his astounding strength, Percy's only real power is his durability. Having skin that is 'as tough as a rhino', Percy can be considered to have this power at Excellent (20) rank, providing him the following protection from attack:

Ex 20 / Ty 6 / Fe 2 / Sh 0 / Sh 0

Limitations / Enhancements:





Gullibility: the bizarre concoction that gave Percy his irrational strength also worked wonders on his mind - but not in a good way. His smarts aren't what they used to be, and as such, Percy is at a -2 CS to avoid being conned into anything by just about anyone.


Martial Arts type B: while he's not too bright, and may have in fact lost some of his talents, Percy can still fight with the best of 'em. One skill he's constantly working on is his ability to bludgeon others, which grants him a +1 CS on any unarmed melee attack he attempts.


While he may've had various contacts amongst law enforcement types, former high-dollar friends, and so forth, Percy has turned against his country, and not too many people like a traitor. As such, his only likely remaining contacts are amongst his fellow Battle-Axis team-mates.


When in action as the mighty Strongman, Percy wears a rather heroic get-up. It consists of yellow stretch fabric trousers, blue flared boots, a blue and yellow vest (complete with a high yellow collar), a red belt and bandolier, and of course a rather large, yellow cape (for effect).


Percy is dim. He was forever changed by an experimental drug he bought and used to boost his strength, if only to silence his childhood demons. He's now incredibly gullible, and while he originally used his powers for good, he was quickly duped into serving the ends of evil men.

After being beaten by bullies throughout his youth, Percy van Norton became obsessed with protecting himself from such in his adult life. As such, he set about making a whole lot of money, and after he had enough, he bought an experimental drug cocktail in 1940.

Eagerly subjecting himself to its effects, Percy found that he had grown strong - super-humanly so, in fact. Unfortunately, it also affected his mind, making him somewhat... less intelligent than before. People even told him so, but he didn't buy it. He improved himself, after all!

Percy used his new abilities to fight crime for a time, but quickly grew tired of people making fun of his diminished capacity. He thus began to run with a new set of friends, friends that worship strength in all its many forms. Friends like the Nazis (if such can really be considered friends).

Seeing how their army bulldozed over France and other nations, Percy found a mental affinity with these villains. As such, he was easily swayed into the Battle-Axis along with Doctor Death's other dupes, and went along with the team's plan to tear California off the west coast.

Though he and his compatriots were rather strong, the Battle-Axis had nothing on the Invaders who opposed them, even if the team wasn't at full strength. Defeated and arrested for treason, Percy's ultimate fate is as of yet unknown - though it probably wasn't very pleasant.
