Yeah, he is sort of my own combination of Captain America and Superman. I have a whole time line from the 1940's to the present for my cutom super hero universe that I use in Champions. Here is the American Avengers story in case you are interested. Also I forgot to mention in the first post, much thanks to Kal-Elvis for allowing me to use his Superman as a base for the AA sprite.
Background/History: Joshua Knight was born and raised in Washington D.C. His father, a career military man, taught him from a very early age to love his country. Joshua was a briliant student in school and a star athlete of his high school. After graduating, Joshua attened Harvard on a full scholorship and after finishing his law degree he moved back to the capitol and passed the bar exam. His life was going well for him and his family. He had just been offered a partnership in a well established law firm, and his father had just got promoted to a position in the Petnagon. Life was good and then it happened. September 11, 2001. The terrorist attacks on this country left American's in shock, they hapened so quickly that not even the superhumans had time to act. Hijacked planes crashd into the twin towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The towers were completely destroyed as were sections of the Pentagon. Joshua was at the Pentagon having lunch with his father when the attack occured. Both Joshua and his father were knocked unconcious when the plane struck the building. Joshua awoke several days later in a Primus med lab to find the Golden Avenger himself standing over him. Josh tried to sit up, but he coudn't. He tried to speak but his voice was barely audible.
"My father..." he managed to say.
"I'm sorry son, " The Avenger began "General Knight is dead and you are severly injured. The doctor's say you might not walk ever again."
Josh didn't seem to really care about that and asked "Who attacked and why?"
"Osama Bin Landen and the Al- Quaida. They said they were on a mission from Allah. But the real question is, what do you want to do about it?"
"Don't...follow...you..." Josh said confused.
"Your father was a good soldier and due that I have been authorized to offer you and you alone a one time oppourtunity. One of our top scientists was working on a new enhancement serum that would turn a normal into a superhuman. However that scientist was killed in the atacks and the serum remains complete but untested. If the serum works the way it was intended you will not only be cured of your current ailments but have immense physical power. However there is a chance the serum might not work or that it can kill you."
Joshua said without hesitation "I'll do it"
The next day Joshua was injected with the serum and his body began to undergo a vast transformation. After the serum took effect Joshua underwent months of combat training and is now a sanctioned memeber of Primus. Since then he has worked on numerous occasions with several of the super hero teams throughout the country and was alongside the U.N.T.I.L. contingent that fished both Sadam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden from their hiding places. He is currently operating in the New York area and can travel freely throughout the country as he sees fit. His rank in the Primus orginization is equal to the Golden Avengers.
