Name: Jack Irwin
Background: Jack Irwin was a white Australian man who had served in the ADF (Australian Defense Forces), trained to be a sniper. However, he had a rather bloodthristy reputation the caused him to be discharged. After his time in the ADF, Irwin spent his years as a freelance mercenary, offering his sniper skills to the highest bidder.
Superpower Origins: Irwin was contacted by the Australian government to take part in an experiment to create more strong and durable soldiers, believing that Irwin was expendable if the experiment killed him. Injecting him with the genes of a Salt-Water Crocodile, Irwin did indeed gain extra durablity and strength beyond a peak human. However, he quickly mutated into a crocodillian humanoid, and took the name Bunyip, after an Aboriginal legend about a large creature of the swamps.
Superhuman Strength – Jack is able to lift up to half-a-ton without a problem
Superhuman Durability: The scales on Jack’s mutated body are hard, of similar durability to military grade kevlar. Although he is rendered bullet proof, he still can be injured by energy weapons and cutting tools.
Natural Weapons: Thanks to the crocodile genetics, Jack now has two sets of claws (one with his hands, the other with his feet), a crocodillian tail, and a powerful jaw with sharp teeth to attack with.
Amphibious: Due to his mutated DNA, Bunyip can breath underwater for 30 minutes without the need to come up for air.
Military Training: As a member of a military unit, Jack Irwin has moderate training in hand-to-hand combat and firearms. Yet, he is specialized in the use of sniper rifles.
