a character in “Bushido Metal”, as played by Baron Fowling

Description

Name: Leonard
Alias: Magnum
Age: Thirties?
Nature: Radical Mutant
Allegiance: He don't break his back for no-one.
Appearance: Standing at 6'1'', with his average-height and only slightly better-than average build, Leonard hardly stands out in a crowd, which is just the way he likes it these days. The African-American sports short, tidy dreadlocks and a goatee with touches of grey beginning to appear around the edges. When out and about he favours long coats, sandals and sunglasses.
Powers: Leonard's radical mutant ability is a rather simple, but highly effective one. Quite simply, any part of his body can, at any time, deliver a hugely powerful burst of kinetic energy to whatever it is in contact with at the time. He can level a brick wall by placing his palm on it, push himself off the ground at great speed by "firing" through the soles of his feet, create powerful blasts of air by "firing" at distant targets, and many other creative applications formed through years of experience. His power is limited, though: he can only generate six or so shots every minute.
Personality
Although age and years of oppression by a society that doesn't appreciate him have turned Leonard cold and hard to those he doesn't know or trust, there is still a dim spark within him of the exuberance, enthusiasm and selflessness that first propelled him into colourful tights. He reserves his respect for those that he knows personally, and to them he is fiercely loyal and caring, even if that isn't immediately apparent. When it comes to the common man, he tends to be somewhat cynical, most likely as a result of the vilification he underwent after the events of the late eighties.
Equipment: None worth mentioning
Costume: Oh, you ain't gonna see that. Don't ask.
Weaponry: Carries a number of unmarked black hard rubber balls, which he turns into powerful projectiles through the use of his powers, for a more effective ranged attack.
History
Starting in 1980, Magnum burst onto the superhuman scene along with Black Rain and Cat's Eye as the Mersey-based superhero group Falling Eagles. In an era in which posthumans warred over turf and caused major collateral damage with their battles, the Falling Eagles gained popularity among the public for entering battle only to protect lives, as well as by ending conflicts in ways that favoured efficiency and speed over flashiness. Gaining nationwide fame for defeating the ultravillain Majestra after her murder of the superhuman idol Miss Sunshine, as well as their swift and capable defusing of the Lindholm Cruises hostage situation, the Eagles were regarded as being among the top posthumans operative in the States. However, when the reforms of 1988 rolled around, they were presented the same ultimatum as any superhuman group operative within the nation. Refusing to put themselves into the government's hands, as did most others, the Eagles fell under the jurisdiction of Proposition 11.

During a routine conflict with the malevolent Raikuda, Leonard and the other Eagles were ambushed by four agents of the Freedom League: Whitestone, Quickdraw, The Wraith and Missile Master. In the conflict Whitestone, Raikuda and Cat's Eye were all killed, and Magnum was seriously injured. This was the last sighting of the Falling Eagles, and both Magnum and Black Rain slipped entirely from the public view thereafter.

So begins...
