Joey Malrone was the consigliere to the head of the Valenci crime family. He enjoyed the lavish lifestyle that came with it, beautiful women, fancy cars, and a custom-made violet suit, which became his signature. Even though he lived like a pampered prince, he was not at all afraid to get his hands dirty. There’s a saying in the criminal underworld, “If you see blue [cops], run. If you see purple [Malrone], pray.” Malrone was the most feared man in the criminal underworld. But, one day, Malrone was overseeing the daily operations at a mafia-owned power plant that also operated as a front for a drug smuggling operation. The cop burst into the plant and a huge firefight ensued. The heroes Brimstone and Warhawk arrived to help subdue the mafia soldiers present and take them into custody. Malrone refused to be taken and attacked the heroes like a one-man army. The heroes defeated the frenzied mafioso and proceeded to arrest him. Malrone used the last of his strength to launch one final attack on the heroes, who saw it coming and promptly retaliated sending the mafioso careening over the railing of the platform, right into the core of the plant, severely damaging it and thrusting the plant into red alert. the heroes tried to save Malrone but couldn’t reach him in time before the plant was destroyed. All workers were evacuated before the plant exploded and Malrone was believed to be dead. But when the smoke cleared, he emerged from the remains of the plant, but, he was different. Since that night, Malrone has taken over the criminal underworld and brought the families together, forming The Veiled Syndicate. Nothing is worse than a super-powered crime lord.

Name: Solar Streak
Powers/Abilities: Super Speed, Fire Projection, Limited Fire Manipulation (can only control the fire he creates)
Formerly a hero, Solar Streak and his fellow recruit, Aircrash, were kicked out of the superhero organization headed by Warhawk due to some “unpleasantness” that occurred with a vigilante named Renegade. Seeing an opportunity to hit the heroes where it hurts, a supervillain named Grinder recruited them both to his evil organization. Only time will tell how hard this turn of events will affect the heroes.December 30, 2013 at 6:29 pm #35465

Aircrash and his fellow recruit, Solar Streak, were sent to apprehend vigilante named Renegade. After the operation took a sudden turn for the worst, Warhawk told them to leave and never come back. Seeing an opportunity to hit the heroes where it hurts, a supervillain named Grinder recruited them both to his evil organization.

Happy New Year everyone!
Weapons: 2 machetes, an AUG Assault Rifle, and 2 Colt M1991A1 pistols
Renegade will always be known as the man who nearly brought the entire superhero world down to its knees. Firmly believing that superheroes brought more harm than good, Levi Adderman took up the mantle of Renegade and began to fight crime in the only way he saw fit, permanently. His specialty was what could only be described as ritualistic murder of criminals, each killing coming within days of each other. His trademark was a note he left at the scene of each killing, always saying, “We don’t need them!” in reference to the heroes he so despised. He became obsessed with eradicating all notion of superheroes from the world, and this this obsession drove him to the brink of insanity. All this led to what could be considered one of the most terrible moments in superhero history. Driven mad with obsession, Renegade devised a plan to stage a hostage crisis wherein he would not only save the day in the public eye, but also lure the heroes out. His plan worked, the building was surrounded by the police and the heroes arrived, well, two did anyway, and they were recruits. Renegade didn’t care how many were there or who they were because, in his book, that would mean 2 less heroes around. What Renegade didn’t count on, however, was that the heroes weren’t there to save the hostages as he thought they would be, they were there for him. You see, in the investigation of the murders, the police spoke with several superheroes to see if they knew anything about Renegade, whom the police assumed was one of them. Thus, when the heroes heard that Renegade was stopping a crime in progress at the bank, Warhawk sent two new recruits, Solar Streak and Aircrash, to apprehend and interrogate Renegade. When the heroes entered the bank, bypassed all of the hostages, and headed straight for Renegade, he panicked and opened fire on them both. Renegade then retreated to the roof and the heroes gave chase, leaving the police to rescue the hostages. Cornered, Renegade stepped to the very edge of the roof. The heroes tried in vain to talk him down, saying that they just wanted to ask him questions. Now completely beyond the brink, Renegade had an irrational thought, “If I die now, I’ll die as a hero. But, if I’m killed now, they’ll live as villains.” Renegade then stared defiantly at the young heroes, and uttered his final words, “We don’t need you…” and thrust himself of of the roof, falling three stories to his death, landing on a police car. Once again, his plan worked, the man was seen as a hero by both the police and the hostages, and, never having seen them before, the two recruits were assumed to be villains and responsible for Renegade’s death. Although his intentions were never entirely worked out by the heroes, Renegade’s legacy lives on, for with his death came the question, “Are the heroes good for us?” And with the revelation that Aircrash and Solar Streak were indeed heroes and not villains (at the time), the flames were sparked for the anti-superhero outcry that followed.
