    "Why do heroes need to be good looking or have slick costumes? Not me! I don't need any fancy fire-powers or being able to read minds. Yea, sure, some of those heroes like to get all sneaky-like or show off there super-ultra power and wow the crowd. I say 'Big deal!'.  I say you just need to get the job done and the people will call you a superhero. With my powers of super-belching, I can blow away just about anything I see. So says Captain Uncouth!"

    Major League Eating was holding it's biggest event bringing back it's top champions in a huge showdown of competitive eating. Unfortunately someone in marketing came up with the idea of naming the winner the Greatest Eater in the Universe. This garnered the attention of the Bloatarian known as Garlbulbank The Gluttonus who teleported into the event from his orbiting warship and forced his way into the contest. He easily bested Kobyashi, Chestnut and Stonie and was all set to claim his prize, and destroy the planet as a consequence of daring to not invite him, when HE arrived. Wearing a simple mask and a red cape he strolled up and sat at the table and pulled a plate of food forward. Garlbulbank balked at this challenge, but allowed it. 11 hours of intense eating later and Garlbulbank admitted defeat when one of his twelve stomachs burst. He teleported away filled with shame and in intense pain. The masked man burped lightly and began to walk away. The press called after him asking who he was. He raised his mask as a timely gust of wind sent his cape billowing majestically "Oh you can just call me....Dave."

    He is Norman Smith, once the superhero known as Captain Crusader who retired after nearly a quarter of a century fighting crime. Retirement did not suit him however as he grew old and fat while his superpowers deteriorated. Ten years into his retirement and the birth of his fourth child, a full scaled invasion by the alien Skorrans was launched and almost all of Earth's superheroes as well as its villains were killed along with nearly a billion humans. Thus large parts of the planet fell before the alien invaders.
     
    Save for Captain Crusader who was at first reluctant to join in the fray but finally flew into the skies when the atrocities caused by the aliens grew too much to ignore and in the meantime occasionally fighting against bouts of survivor's guilt.
     
    At one time the sight of an overweight man in outdated long johns was a cause for great amusement among the superhuman community.
     
    Now with the virtual annihilation of said community, no one including the Skorrans and the human traitors who serve them was laughing at Captain Crusader anymore.

    He is the golden age superhero Silver Bullet. He was a simple policeman who found an enchanted suit which is lined with magic and silver. It enhances his strength and speed when he wears it. And because of the silver in stratistic locations, it protects him from supernatural evil and allows his unarmed punches to destroy werewolves and vampires.
     
    He spent the early golden age fighting gangsters and supernatural evil. Later, Natzies, gangsters,  supernatural evil, and fifth colomest.

    Bullet Train
     
    James Tally, age 45, enjoyed his job working in the train industry. He'd been fascinated with trains since his youth so it was only natural that he decided to get a job in that area. Being outdoors, checking on tracks, repairing trains, he loved it all. However, being outdoors at night is not always kind to people. On one particular evening, James saw - and felt - a meteor strike nearby. This was a once in a lifetime chance to see a meteor, and maybe get his photo in the paper. He went to the edge of the strike and took a look. The meteor was much smaller than he thought it'd be: perhaps a meter across at most with the strangest, light-blue glow to it. He understood the glow could be radiation and tried to leave. Unfortunately, he'd already been exposed and couldn't move. Moments later, he felt weak and within a minute, fell unconscious into the small crater on top of the meteor.
     
    After waking up in the hospital and staying a few days, James was ready to get back to work. He felt fabulous and better than he had in over a decade. That was when he discovered his powers: he ran to work the ten miles distance in a little over a minute before he knew how to regain control. He'd read the stories about superheroes and their powers; the realization that he'd gotten powers was incredible! After he got home, he took a month's leave of absence and tested himself: he had to know what his powers were or he could devastate something, or someone. He was superhumanly strong, strong enough to lift over ten tons but his ability to run dwarfed even that. With the help of Dr. Helena Amory, the superhuman power expert, he was able to find he could run approximately 500mph.
     
    He decided to take up the mantle of becoming a superhero, to help people in need in the fastest of ways, as Bullet Train.

    Dr. Horatio Blevins was working with CERN at the Large Hadron Collider when aliens known as the Reavers released the Cascade Effect in the Earth's atmosphere. In Blevins case he absorbed energy from the LHC and due the Cascade gained the ability to manipulate matter at a subatomic level. He shortly thereafter transformed himself into a physical marvel and when asked joined with the other people granted abilities from the Cascade to form the Luminaries. He along with other members Rosewood, Old Jo, Blitzbreaker, Speed Round and Nautilus defeated the Reavers and now stand as the Earth's ultimate defenders.

    Neutron Dance
     
    It is not that often that someone in a disco gets superpowers but that is the case with Neutron Dance who was a scientist who was enjoying a boogie in the disco when he contracted powers. Perhaps appropriately he was dancing to the Pointer Sisters who had a hit with said song. it is there that coincidence ends as he was a biologist and zoologist not someone studying chemistry or physics. The US Department of Defence has redacted the name of the scientist in order to protect his family or so they claim. The media particularly the blogs however claim that the Department experimented on him increasing his power and also his devotion to the State.He seems to have no free will which can be troubling.

    Suffering from insomnia, Derek St. John tried to develop a ultrasound device that enables people to sleep soundly. The 'Morpheus' device worked too well and Derek fell asleep for the first time in weeks.
     
    He didn't wake up until a week later. Upon reawakening he discovered that the Morpheus device was stolen by his own brother Eugene who being an mechanical engineer himself, altered the device into a scythe and used it to not only put people into slumber but also somehow inflict vivid nightmares on the sleeping people before robbing them blind. Derek soon confronted Eugene who now called himself the Boogeyman and dressed like the grim reaper, zapped him with the scythe. Much to their surprise, the Morpheus weapon didn't affect Derek and during the struggle Eugene made his getaway.
     
    Determined to undo the harm his brother had caused, Derek built another Morpheus machine and made a costume which concealed his identity.
     
    Now as The Sandman, he ensures the innocent people of the city will sleep soundly without fear of the Boogeyman.

    Little known fact - everybody's heartbeat is different.  The heart rate, the amplitude of the beats, little microscopic pauses between some beats.  If you've got good hearing-- and I mean really, really good -- you can tell one person from another in a pitch black room just by how their heart sounds. 
     
    My hearing is that sharp.  Good thing, too, since I'm blind as a bat.
     
    You'd think that being blind would be a major impediment to a career as an assassin, but I do okay.  I've got this sonar-like ability that helps me know what's where, and my other senses are ramped up a bit too.  (Let's not talk about an empowered sense of smell.  One trip in a crowded elevator at a game convention should let you know how bad that could be.)  I can even make a good guess, based on the heart rate change and the smell of a sweat outbreak and what-not, whether someone's lying.  And trust me, you want to know when your client is lying to you about your next target. 
     
    I even made this tricked-out man-portable missile launcher.  Sure, the missiles are kinda small, not much larger than a rifle bullet.  But they home in on the target's heartbeat.  All I gotta do is fire in their general direction and the missiles will zip around obstacles, then wham!  Right in the ticker. 
     
    Anyway, that's why my code name is Heart Beat.

The thing is, he is not exactly a physical being, but a creature of the Internet who can exist in the physical world for a short time. If he is able to connect to Internet, he can 'download' any weapon or equipment he needs at a moment's notice.
