Name: Nighthawk

Powers: None

Costume:Black pants, white utility belt black (Kind've like Nightwings) longsleeved top. Mask that sits on the face, covering most of it, except the mouth. (Kind've like the green lanturns.)

Base/City of Operations: Seattle or Los Angeles

Weapons: This is quite large. Custumorised Boomerangs (Batarangs), Grappling hook, special contact lenses that change colour on thought (I'll explain this later) and can also turn night vision and zoom in, Smoke and explosive bombs. Special darts (tranquelizer and normal) concealed in wrist area. A mouth peice that stores 2 hours worth of oxygen and can disguise voice. Small cameras and tracking devices.

Special Weapons: A giant blade like object (shaped kind've like a Batarang) made out of Adamantium that when attached to the special glove can be controlled by thought. Can be spun super fast to make a sheild or launched as a projectile. No normal hero can just pick up and use this weapon, it requires extensive training. Can fold in to make it easy to manuver around and to conceal itself. 2 special gloves, the one on the right is made out of a more malleable adamantium, and can change fingure prints when loaded from his computer (again, I'll explain later.). This holds the giant blade. The second one has his computer attached to it. It's like a small laptop that can be folded open. It's made to resist damage and is water proof (if closed). It connects to his huge computer room at home that holds the data for fingerprints and the eye types, which can be loaded up to their respective parts. Can be used to view from the cameras or load up maps and the tracking devices. Can also be used for a database. He also has an implant inserted into his brain which allows him to control his giant blade, he can also change eye colour by thought, but any specific eye type has to be uploaded from the computer. He can also control night vision and the zooming.

Fighting Style: Knows lots of styles, but focuses more on a ninjitzu cross boxing cross wrestling style.

Special Training: Explained in story.

Weakness: Some times relies to heavely on computer. Is trained to withstand mind games but if someone else is involved he is quick to anger which may lead to either a) a foolish mistake or B ) killing someone (A big no-no). Often feels regret for killing someone, sometimes to the point of depression. A secret government organisation knows a lot about him too.

Motivation: Watching the government organisation kill his mother right in front of him and then seeing the organisations power allow the killers to get off scott free

Origin: After an earthquake when he was 8, Nighthawk was kidnapped by the secret organization to be trained to be a new bread of super agents. He was put into a coma, hooked up to a giant computer where he learnt fighting styles, weapons uses, e.t.c (ala the Matrix, but much slower.) 9 years later he starts getting nightmares while in these comas about a woman who he doesn't know. This causes him to break out of the coma. Awakening and not knowing what's happening, he rips himself out of the machine, waking up to see other children hooked up just like he was. He stops their connections as well. He is then discovered awake by a security officer who takes him to their training facility to hook him up with his costume, gear and fill him in that he is a super soldier (even though he really only has the stats of an olympic athlete). After a year of training, he is about to go on his first mission, when the nightmares start getting to him again. A scientist monitoring his dreams tells him she is his mother. Nighthawk escapes, to find his mother. The leader of the operation realises where he is going and sends three agents to kill her. Just as Nighthawk reunites with his mother, the men kill her. Nighthawk beats them into submission, hoping the law will take care of this. Long story short, it doesn't and he becomes a vigilante of justice.

Would you have a secret identity? Yes. It'd probably be my name (I'm too lazy) and would be a comic book artist and owner of a comic book store,.

Would you be a human, alien, god/supernatural being, or spirit? Human

Would you have a sidekick? No

Would you be on a team? Probably later on (i.e JLA, Avengers e.t.c, famous superheroes combined together to battle greater evils.)

Secret headquarters is below his comic book store.

That's quite a lot. I got carried away.
