    The Siren
    Real Name: Calvin Bins
    Powers: Police Training,
    Weaponry: Sonic Gun (Can blast pain inducing sound, and record and play back any sound), Light-Up helmet (A helmet the lights up like a police siren)
    Origin: The America Supercop program, was designed to deal with rising crime rates by creating their own superheros, that would work under law enforcement agencies. Some of these people were freak of natures, some were given incredible powers, others were given experimental technology. That last one was the case for Police Sergeant Calvin Bins. A highly decorated officer of the NYPD he was chosen for the Supercop program and given his experimental Sonic Gun.
    Personality: Calvin Bins is the embodiment of Lawful Good, to him the law is that law and he follows it blindly. And yet he always manages to do the right things.

    He wears light absorbing body armor so he can become one with the shadows. An expert in martial arts, he is the best of the best in his S.W.A.T team. His helmet has nightvision, and infra red, so he can see any crime taking place.
    He hunts down criminals with the skills of a wild animal… he is….Lonewolf
