Powers and Abilities

Bloodtype is a huge and extremely strong man (in fact, he seems to be superhumanly strong, which was likely his chief power as Mister America II) with remarkable combat abilities.

His brutal size and strength allow him to wear an armoured costume with multiple machine guns and flame throwers located on both bracers, and a heavy helmet bristling with electronics.


History

Bloodtype was formerly the hero known as Mister America II, apparently a superstrong patriotic type. While he was married to his crime-fighting partner, Liberty Lass, they did not know each other’s secret identity, a fact the press just loved.

For some unknown reason, Mister America and Liberty Lass moved to the city of Vanity, in Oregon. In this desperate city, the two strong and positive heroes gave a little hope to the population for a while.

Such a situation cannot last for long in Vanity, however. What happened is unclear ; though it was apparently high profile, people tend to just refer to it as ’the accident‘. Both Mister America and Liberty Lass apparently suffered considerable physical and psychological damage. Liberty Lass had to be surgically reconstructed by the CIA using artificial plastic skin, and eventually became Death Doll, a jackal for the Agency.

Mister America, apparently estranged from Death Doll, eventually became Bloodtype, the main vigilante of Vanity. While he had become a brutal gunman who did not really care about collateral damage and routinely slaughtered criminals, he was the only thing that could keep the criminals in check and a real pain in the neck of the gang bosses. His name, deeds and bodycount terrified minor supercriminals.

When has-been costumed criminal the Piper was forced out of retirement by criminals who had seemingly kidnapped his daughter, Bloodtype confronted him in the bank he was robbing. The thoroughly out-of-shape and demoralized Piper did not stand a chance against the savage Bloodtype and was slaughtered, eventually dying from his wounds — but that was not the crux of the plan.

One of Piper’s strange pipe-homonculi had been replaced by one loaded with potent explosive ; while Bloodtype was fighting with the new hero Aztec, who disapproved of his methods, the bomb went off near a ruptured gas main.

Bloodtype lost much of his right leg in the carnage, and died within minutes of reaching the hospital. As expected, this triggered a crime explosion in the city, as the threat of Bloodtype was gone and numerous criminals saw their big chance, which contributed to overwhelming the police.

The gang bosses carefully monitored the situation, making sure they stayed on top and remained on top of the heat they had created and prepared for.

A number of minor Vanity supercriminals, many of them previously wounded by Bloodtype, came to his funeral ; while most made a big show of this being honour and respect among criminals, they actually wanted to make sure he was dead, since they were so afraid of him.

Blaming Aztek, the damaged and distraught Death Doll tried to avenge him, but was betrayed by a henchman and seemingly accidentally killed in the attempt, marking the bloody end for what had been a loving couple of positive, courageous super-heroes wrecked by Vanity.


Description

As Mister America II, he dressed like a gentleman from the Revolutionary era. Bloodtype wears some form of bandages around the top of his helmet, which may hint at the major physical damage suffered during the ’accident‘.


Personality

Your typical 1990s gun-toting vigilante, devoid of hesitation or pity and motivated more by his hatred of criminals than by any sort of care toward innocents. He is known to torture some of his opponents, likely to pry information out of them, and seems to run on anger and brutality.

When not in uniform he presumably had a trench coat, a five-o-clock shadow and a ponytail.


Quotes

“I don’t know what sorry bargain basement you and your jerks ’r‘ us pals crept out from. But playtime’s over !”

Piper: “God help me, I’m a human being !”
Bloodtype: “Wrong. You’re a pig. You’re criminal scum. And there’s a question I always ask criminal scum like you…” [lowers his weapon] “What’s your blood type ? Scum.”

“Oh yeah, I might graze my knuckles on your face. Stop trying to play with the big kids, sonny !”

“Do me a favor and die.”
