Powers and Abilities

Render is at the peak of human strength, except in his forearms. There, his strength is superhuman ; his grip can deform steel. Other than that, he is as much a loser as the rest of the Devastators.


History

An ex-con, his forearms and grip became superhumanly strong one day when he washed his hands in heavy water on his job as a janitor in a research facility. He teamed up with the others to found the Devastators, and hasn’t had a break since. Sometimes, he wishes he had bathed in the heavy water.

Second in command of the Devastators, and the second tallest. He is 6’1”, 190 lbs, with black hair and grey eyes. His costume is usually some combination of browns and blues.


Personality

Render is an annoying loser, constantly preaching about the strength of his grip, and getting angry at the sniggers and jokes about how his grip got so strong.
