Powers and Abilities

Faze can phase  through stuff. The upper limits of his power are unrevealed.

He is accompanied by a swarm of small robots, the Mechabytes. These have a variety of useful sensors and manipulators, and are self-repairing. Faze usually carry the Mechabytes in an attaché case when they’re not deployed.


History

Faze is a corporate spy and enforcer. He clashed with the Black Cat (Felicia Hardy) as she invaded a yacht belonging to Cobalt Pharmaceuticals.

The Black Cat couldn’t do much again an immaterial opponent. But she managed to bluff him and outwit him.

Faze ended up thrown from an low-flying helicopter into the ocean, and the Black Cat stole his case with the Mechabytes.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Normally he’s smug, somewhat pompous and not really bright.

If he think he’s going to be hurt, however (for instance if a big explosion is about to occur – he’s not sure of the upper limits of his phasing ability) he’s likely to panic somewhat and turn tail.

He relies far too much on his power and robots.


Quotes

“Freeze, Cat. You’re on private property. And Cobalt didn’t hire Faze and his Mechabytes to let trespassers run free.”
