Concussion from Russia (Marvel Comics)

Concussion


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

Concussion was seen but twice, in 1986 and 1992. He’s mostly there since there was a need for “seed” Russian characters. That is, obscure characters who could be developed and fleshed out for the means of tabletop RPG campaigns.

So his genericness was useful in this regard.


Background

  • Real Name: Mikhail (last name unrevealed).
  • Marital Status: Unrevealed.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: Garnoff Underground.
  • Base Of Operations: Russia.
  • Height: 5’8” Weight: 150 lbs.
  • Eyes: Brown Hair: Black

Powers and Abilities

Concussion can project large concussive blasts from his hands. These are usually a translucent violet energy. The beam can be very wide if needed, blowing up a large area.


History

Concussion was first seen as part of the group of mutant dissidents working in USSR with Father Garnoff (aka Blind Faith). That was likely after having being rescued from governmental efforts at mutant elimination, containment and study.

One of his documented missions involved attacking a concentration camp for mutants run by unethical doctor Heinreich. Garnoff’s men used the diversion triggered by the American covert mutant of X-Factor to free experimental mutant subjects.

Like nearly all members of the Garnoff Underground, he was later murdered in a brutal assault by the dreaded mutant hunter Firefox.


Description

Concussion dresses like an everyday 1980s Russian man – no flashy costume.


Personality

Concussion seemed to be a bit of a wiseass, somewhat frank and sarcastic. He enjoyed chain-smoking ghastly hand-rolled cigarettes.
