Absorbing Man


Carl "Crusher" Creel was a boxer who, after losing a fight for the heavyweight title contender, found work as a brutal enforcer for the New York Mob. Before long he was imprisoned and serving a prison sentence for assault and extortion. There he was found by the Norse God Loki, who saw in his savage, antisocial spirit the perfect, malleable tool to take revenge on his brother Thor. In prison, Creel drank a magic potion surreptitiously snuck in by Loki that granted him the ability to absorb anything he touched.

Overwhelmed by the Asgardian magicks coursing through him, Creel on instinct single handedly escaped the prison with ease . With such power contained in a malevolent soul, it would only be a matter of time before he clashed with Loki's enemies.

Abilities



Gear: Magic Ball and Chain (Variable)

The ball and chain Creel was shackled to when he drank the magic potion was similarly enchanted with his aborption ability. Its effectiveness in combat varies with the material both it and Creel are composed of at the time.



Power: Absorption (10)

Courtesy of a magical potion, Crusher Creel has the ability to duplicate the material properties (both physical and magical) of anything he touches - gas, liquid, solid, or even energy sources.

In addition to an object's properties, Creel can absorb its volume and mass into himself, provided what he's touching is sufficiently large (such as a boulder or a building). While the Absorbing Man can duplicate the superpowered physical properties of those he touches, he cannot truly absorb others into his being as he can with inanimate objects.



Power: Reintegration (N/A)

Absorbing Man is defeatable by absorbing the properties of incohesive materials such as water, or noble gases, and as a result being effectively disintegrated. Given sufficient time however, Creel has the ability to reincarnate his corporeal form from complete atomization.



Skill: Former Boxer (4)

Before gaining powers or going to jail, Carl "Crusher" Creel was a journeyman boxer in the local NYC boxing scene.



Skill: Intimidation (3)

Shaking down mooks as a hired goon is a refined skill. Albeit an easy one when you were a heavyweight title contender in boxing. And only easier when you go toe to toe with the brawniest superheroes.



Skill: Physical Training (4)

Long years of boxing and hard prison labor have granted Creel an enormous heavyweight frame; his absorption powers have nothing to do with his impressive 6'4, 365 pound physique.



Advantages



Advantage: Criminal Connections

As a low-level mobster and later on a prisoner, Creel was known by the 'mundane' criminal community long before he gained superpowers. The Absorbing Man has many contacts from his past for all sorts of illegal activity.



Flaws



Flaw: Automatic Absorption

The Absorbing Man's power automatically absorbs everything he is physical contact with and it is an act of deliberate will on Creel's part to /not/ absorb something's properties.



Flaw: Uneducated

Creel is not a thinking man; an unremarkable thuggish goon before he gained powers, the full potential of Absorbing Man's powers is often untapped due to Creel's lack of analytical or conceptual thought.



Flaw: Wanted Felon

Crusher Creel was a convicted felon long before Loki granted him superhuman powers. Since his escape from prison, he has been embroiled in endless, public battles with the forces of law and order. As an infamous super-criminal with no secret identity, Absorbing Man's ability to interact with mainstream society is very limited and fraught with risk.
