Powers and Abilities

Headknocker is extremely strong and tough, and very fast. He’s also extremely violent.


History

Headknocker, a small time criminal, has had a career in bank robberies after he became an ultra (he was transformed when the Squad was). His extremely violent rampage, during which he killed several police officers and stole millions, was halted by Hardcase a few months later.

This case was the first case in which Hardcase acted as a superhero ever since the death of the Squad, and marked his return as a hero. Unfortunately, he hesitated too much before fighting Headknocker, resulting in the death of Jamal Brown, a policeman he knew when working with the Squad.

This fight occurred right under the eyes of a completely unfazed man called Nicholas Lone – who would become Solitaire a few months later.

Like almost every arrested ultra, Headknocker was taken by the Aladdin agency to its Groom Lake facility for detention and study. When Hardcase and Choice made their second attempt to penetrate Groom Lake facility, Aladdin chose to free and deputize Headknocker and Hardwire, both highly dangerous ultra killers, to stop them. They managed to do so, but then fled into the desert.


Description

Personality

Violent killer on a rampage, delighting in mostly futile attempts to stop him. He will assume most ultras can’t stop him (in fact, he’s slightly stronger than even Hardcase).


Quotes

“Bullets don’t phase me, suckers !”


DC Universe History

Excellent choice if you need a brick to send on a rampage, to reinforce a super-group, for a short encounter before launching a heavier scenario, etc.
