Powers and Abilities

Pooch has received military training, and is familiar with a wide range of military weapons.

See the team’s entry.

Pooch maintained covert contact with his family while believed dead. But could only visit them rarely, and with precautions.


Pooch is the least comfortable remaining with the team. He would prefer to return to his wife and daughters. But he also sees the team as his family, and does what he can to make the world his daughters will grow up in free of people like Max.
