Real Name: John Novak
Weight: 162 lbs
Eye Color: Blue
Identity: Mr. Modify keeps his identity of John Novak a secret to protect his mother from the foes he might gain.
New Guy: Mr. Modify is a newer hero on the scene and isn't well known, this normally means that super villains have no idea who he is and often disrespect him.
Reputation ~Friend of the Tomorrow People: As the Tomorrow have a reputation as criminals, Mr. Modify's being trained by them and friends with many of the members some members of the heroic community question exactly his intentions are.
Background: John Novak was a teenager when his mutant powers first manifested; able to alter the chemical composition of anything he touches into its elemental components or turn them into other forms (though he need to fully understand the physical composition of the desired result). With little control over his powers, John was turning objects he touched into gold.
This drew the attention of a group of trolls who, centuries ago, had been driven underground by humanity. The trolls wanted to reclaim the British Isles for their kind and thus kidnapped John in order to have him create an abundance of gold that would collapse the British economy, but John refused to comply with their demand.
Meanwhile John's mother had witnessed her son's abduction by the trolls and contacted the police, though her story made them think she was out of touch mentally and they instead had her committed to an asylum for observation. But before she was committed John's mother managed to contact members of the media about what had happened to John.
The resulting story got the attention of the Tomorrow People, who travelled to the U.K. locate John. They managed to locate the trolls, following a trail of gold that John had left behind when he was kidnapped, but the trolls defeated and imprisoned the Tomorrow People.
The trolls then tried to force Thomas to obey by threatening to hurt his mother, whom they had taken from the asylum. In order to protect his mother John turned the troll leaders, Phy and Phee, into gold, an action that caused the remaining trolls to retreated into a portal to the . After Madame Tomorrow settled things with local authorities, John used his powers to turn the golden trolls into lead as to avoid the aforementioned economic problems and placed the leaden trolls in Hyde Park as statues.
John decided to take Madame Tomorrow up on her offer to come with the Tomorrow People to Castle Mass so he could be trained in the use of is powers, specifically studying biochemistry so that he could restore the leaden trolls back to normal eventually.
A few years later the trolls returned, kidnapping Alchemy's mother and forced him to do their bidding, though he secretly let the Tomorrow People know what was happening. On their way to restore the leaden trolls back to normal, the trolls and John ran into the Crown Guard and the two groups fought.
During the melee John was forced to turn Big Ben and Zero into gold, which allowed the trolls to get away with John and his mother. When the Tomorrow People arrived and explained what was going on to the Crown Guard and together the two groups managed to track down the trolls but both groups were captured.
Crown Guard's leader, Silverfang, managed to convince the majority of the trolls that their methods were wrong and challenged their leader, Phough, to single combat while the Tomorrow People and Crown Guard freed themselves.
Phough then tried to kill Alchemy's mother during the massive fight that broke out between the trolls and the two teams, but Silverfang saved her and John turned Phough into a golden statue. John then revealed to the Crown Guard that, due to his biochemistry studies, he could now reverse the changes he'd done to people and restored Big Ben and Zero.
John returned to the Tomorrow People to finish his training and a few months ago he 'graduated' from the training Madame Tomorrow had been giving him and is looking for a town to settle down in and is debating about moving into either Freedom City, Bay City or Emerald City. He hasn't decided yet but has been showing up randomly in all three of the cities lately.
Notes & Comments wrote:Yes, I am a horrible hack.
I basically took the background for the Marvel character Alchemy and altered the names of everyone to fit into my FC setting....
But I couldn't help it. I really liked the character back in the day since he was a fan creation that one a contest to get printed. So sue me.
Plus it gave me another reference for a couple teams that don't see a lot of use in the setting, so that's a bonus. :wink:
