Powers and Abilities

Fusion can force an object or being to turn into another matter that the object or being is touching ; for instance he can turn someone touching granite into granite. His modus operandi is to thrown small pieces of material at his target, as he can charge those pieces with his power as long as he throws them personally.

Thus, throwing a marble at someone would turn the target into glass if Fusion hits (and, no, I don’t understand why he does not carry a full bag of marbles or other projectiles).

His targets, if alive, remain Suspended and turned into the matter that hit them for up to one hour, after which they return to their normal state. Of course, during that period, they have the BOD (and, although it doesn’t matter much, STR) of whatever matter hit them.


History

The Bloodpool project was certainly not the finest moment of the US government’s special projects involving superhumans. About twenty nu-gene active teens were recruited from their families, prodded, tested, operated on, genetically and cybernetically enhanced, and subjected to a dangerous and gruelling training. The promise was that they could one day join the prestigious Youngblood action team, a powerful combat force and media tool for the government.

However, there was a crisis in the Youngblood organization when director Graves was discovered to be a demon. During the upheaval, the new director, Battlestone, decided to forego the Bloodpool contracts ; despite all the promises and all they had been through, the Bloodpool subjects were effectively downsized.

A few of them (Task, Psilence, Wylder, Fusion, Rubble, Seoul) chose to follow the advice of one of Seoul’s spirit guide and, with the support of former Youngblood leader Shaft, struck on their own as a private, hero-for-hire outfit. An early, lucky meeting with a millionaire in an unfortunate situation bankrolled them, and the group, which carries on the Bloodpool name, soldiers on.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Fusion is the most reserved and least bloodthirsty member of Bloodpool, which may account for much of his friendship for Wylder (he seems slightly fascinated by Wylder’s ferocity).

Think of him as a nice, reasonable, friendly young man from a wealthy background.


Quotes

“Eat hot doorjamb, losers !”


DC Universe History

The Bloodpool might stay a failed government attempt at a super-group, perhaps a Task Force X remnant that Amanda Waller killed in order to make more space for her pet Suicide Squad.

If you want a more recent origin, I’m afraid you won’t escape the DEO… unless you’re willing to resurrect the DDI from Swamp Thing (plus, that would resemble them).
