Rabbit man in a suit checking his pocket watch

Roger the Amazing Rabbit Man


This character is an original creation. We often call these “homemades” or “homebrewed” – think home cooking or craft beer.

Many of these characters were created to take part in tabletop role-playing game sessions. Others were invented as a creative writing exercise, often as part of a community event.

This specific character is based on DC’s “Tangent” concept – sharing the name of a well-known fictional characters but being a different person on a different world.

Powers and Abilities

Roger has the looks and the abilities of a giant rabbit. His long hair protects him from cold while his front teeth and hard nails allow him to dig even on stony surfaces.

He can jump 60‘ bounces and run at up to 200 km/h due to his superstrong legs (represented also by his Martial Artist (EV)). His ears are finely tuned pinpoint instruments who can pick the faintest of sounds around. They can even hear some weird frequences out of the human ear reach.

His passion for reading has gifted him with a pletora of skills — he is an accomplished detective and multidisciplinar artist, an expert in english authors and european philosophers, can accurately appraise the value of fine items, and holds a love for Geography and Geology unsurpassed on the United Kingdom.



Born with a weird physical deformity that makes him look like a cross between a man and a rabbit, Roger Wakefield III knew from an early age that his was not going to be an easy life.

He tried to have a conventional youth. But the traditions of the British countryside clashed with such a special being as Roger. His interest on his motherland, the conventions, the great thinkers and artists of the past… all that promised a prosperous future at college, but Roger’s looks once and again destroyed his hopes.

Running away to join the circus

Eventually he joined the travelling circus of the Bierbaum Brothers, with whom he travelled through all Europe, Middle East and North America half a dozen times.

Life looked settled for Roger and his circus mates, but an unexpected happening changed it all. One day, a bold man among the public dared to enter the announced as deadly tent where Roger lived, something only another person (Superman, during a League adventure in El Cairo) had dared.

He said that his name was Bug or Buggs, something Roger at first thought to be a joke with his own aspect. But when the guy took of his hat and a couple of long, green antennae showed on, the rabbit man understood that, after all, “Bug” perhaps was an alias.

The man was quite nervous, he said he was being ambushed and that he only had a couple of minutes, and asked for Roger’s phone line. He connected a computer and wrote a brief email to a Canadian man with the handle PsychoPirate. “I’ve seen the dawn of time… and it happened in 1994”.

Bug told Roger there was a cosmic conspiration to hide the fact history had been rewritten on different times, although almost nobody seemed to notice. Bug added that there were heroes forgotten all around the world in the past or the present, forgotten perhaps even to themselves. Then he disappeared.

Armed with further knowledge

Roger was really shocked by the information. He tried to contact the Justice League. But they seemed to have disappeared after a combat against the Legion of Supervillains. It had taken place in Yankee Stadium under the influence of the mystic crook El Diablo.

He then tried a B Plan, searching for other heroes, far from the official routes. Heroes who knew (or suspected) the temporal manipulations. And he found them. The Forgotten Heroes first met on Sep. 5th, 2001 at Roger’s tent. Perhaps somebody was changing the past, but they would protect the future.


Roger looks like a man covered in long, pearly white hair and the head of a huge rabbit. When he is at home or otherwise away from public attention, he dresses in a housecoat and, paradoxally, rabbit slippers.

When he must go to the outside he favors trenchcoats, big hats and anything that allows him to hide his impossible features.


Roger is an introspective, pacific man. He is an intellectual who has devoted most of his life to find ways not to call attention over his looks. His show in the circus happened on a closed tent almost nobody ever dared to enter.

He wishes to help others, in part to become part of their community. But also as he knows that it is the most noble, desirable thing to do.


“The Great Dark One, I suppose, is the origin of all this mess. That man is a really, really nasty person. At least, wanting to control every aspect of all sentient beings through the whole history doesn’t seem as anything close to civilized…”

“Robin is with us, Superman, but don’t worry. He has changed, he’s not bad anymore. Well, technically speaking now he never was *bad*, you understand me. I can’t explain better, sorry, we must hurry to reach the dawn of time. Take care you all.”
