Uberman was a simple jewish family man and notable inventor of the early 20th Century, his old name is unimportant as that is no longer who he is. Then second world war erupted and the Nazi's began herding the Jews into the Ghettos, including Uberman. Using smuggled parts and whatever he could scrounge, this brilliant inventor began building a weapon to fight back with, a suit of battle armor that would allow Uberman to walk through the Nazi army unscathed and exact the Lords vengence on those who would persecute his chosen people. He saw himself as another Moses, leading his people from damnation. Then the unthinkable happened, Uberman was caught stealing a vital component to his armour. He was shot and left to rot in the Ghetto streets. Ubermans 13 year old son found him in the gutter and somehow managed to carry his dying father home. There, Uberman was slowly brought back from the death that was surly his, only he was now a full Quadriplegic. He was heart broken. Without his arms and legs he would never be able to finish his weapon, let alone use it. Then, his son offered to help him finish it. His son would steal and smuggle the needed parts, a task he was much better at since he was subject to much less scrutiny. Within a year, they had finished the armor and modified it so that Uberman could pilot it without use of his arms and legs, it would hook directly to his brainwaves, merging the two completely while Uberman was in it, and allowing for much more fluid movement. Under the cover of night, Uberman took the Ten Foot Tall armor out for a test run. It worked better than he had hoped, but when he returned, he found his home razed, his family gone and the ghetto empty. Obviously a guard had seen him leave in his armor and his family and friends suffered the ultimate price for his freedom. He vowed to use his armor to stop this vile war and keep anything like it from ever happening again. Soon, Uberman became a hero to all opposed to the Nazi's. During the War Uberman eventually teamed up with Lady Liberty, the Super-Soldier from the United States. They fought well together and soon found themselves in love with each other and planned on getting married, even though lady Liberty had never actually seen Uberman's face. When Lady Liberty was killed during the battle to end the war, Uberman was crushed, but fought on and brought the war to a grinding halt. He was now the sole symbol of freedom and strength the world over, but to him, Lady Liberty would live forever. Within a few years, world peace became a reality on his world so Uberman left to find a world that could use a great hero - that place was Khazan. He joined the Sentinels of Liberty and Justice, knowing they stood for everything he fought foe, and quickly became an integral part of the Lowtown defenders, a part of town that reminded Uberman of the ghettos he once lived in. When Blitzkrieg, Uberman's long time foe and the being that killed Lady Liberty, made his first appearance in the Khazan Fight Club Uberman quickly transfered from the Lowtown unit to the Arena Fighters unit hoping to finally avenge the death of his lost love.
Personality: Uberman is a hero to the core of his mech-suit. He is Just and Fair in all his dealings and would never double cross a friend or an enemy. He is best compared to Superman or Captain America in attitude. Without a second thought, he will place himself in danger to save another beings life, Friend, Foe or Innocent, it matters not. He is a nice guy, even if he is a bit of a stuffed-shirt sometimes with his Paladin-ish outlook. He has little to no sense of humor thanks to the harsh life he lived in the ghettos of World War II and living the last 50 years locked inside his mech unit. He is all business and no pleasure; well, that's not true...his work is his pleasure, nothing satisfies him more than to bust a few criminal heads(but he is careful not to critically injure or kill any of them.)

U.M.A. - Uber-Mech-Armour
Uberman has not left the confines of his 10' tall Uber-Mech-Armour or UMA(the name of his first wife) since WWII. It offers him protection, anonymity and a freedom he could never have outside it. While it is not known by the general public, Uberman's body died several years ago, but his brain remains intact inside the advanced UMA computer, thus leaving him essenstially immortal, and more a robot than a human being in a mech unit.
- Power: Mechanized Armor
- Reinforced Defenses Defense blocks Armor Piercing attacks.
Concussion Wrist Blasters
In each of the wrists of the UMA are powerful Concussion Blasters that can fire off a beam of powerful concussive energy or can be used to enhance a punch by fireing it right at the point of impact adding to the damage his mighty strength already does. He is able to fire off both wrist blasters at the same time, adding to the damage he can do either as a double blast, double punch or a combination blast and punch to hit a close opponent and a ranged enemy at the same time.
- Power: Bashing Attack
- Seeker This attack hunts and follows its target.
- Ranged and Melee Attack! Attack is equally effective at range and up close.
- Multi Attack Attack can hit multiple times during one strike.
The UMA is equipped with powerful jets in its feet that allow Uberman to take to the air with the greatest of ease. He patrols the skies of Khazan looking for wrongs to right and criminals to fight. Uberman is constantly looking for ways to aid his battle against Blitzkrieg. He is constantly tinkering with U.M.A., looking for ways to improve her. He has been working on the speed of the Jets boots, trying to match Blitzkriegs incredible speed, and while he has yet to achieve that, he has succeeded in increasing his speed to 100mph and enough thrust to reach 1200ft into the air. Perhaps more useful in his daily fight aginst crime than his battle against his arch-nemises, but it will allow Uberman to control the battle as he can decide when he wants bring the battle in close.
Jakob Heismann Program
The UMA is programmed with the knowledge of a great Jewish boxer that lived with Uberman in the Ghettos during the war. Had he been able, this great fighter could have probably beaten Cassius Clay, but one will never know. Uberman had Jakob pilot the UMA with a recorder on to capture all his knowledge of hand to hand combat. By combining the UMA's great strength and a powerful blast from his Wrist Blasters, Uberman can deliver a powerful strike that will make even the toughest fighters see stars for a bit. Over the years, Uberman has become an accomplished fighter in his own right and has picked up several martial arts to go along with his boxing making him a versatile and deadly fighter.

Joesph Goldstein Program
Along with the Jakob Heismann program, the UMA also has what is called the Joesph Goldstein Program. Joesph was Uberman's Uncle and a great sport hunter. Similar to how UMA was programed with Jakobs knowledge, Joesph programmed his sharp eye into the unit also making Uberman a Sharpsooter of amazing skill. Since the suit was first built, Uberman has continued to add to this program, making it into one of the most advanced target tracking devices ever.
- Power: Marksman

Advanced Enemy Detection Unit
Uberman has always had some sensors in the U.M.A., but until recently none have been that powerful. He has added a fully functioning Radar unit in hopes that this will help him fight Blitzkrieg better as he will be able to detect his location at all times and better avoid him and perhaps counter-attack. In essence, this gives Uberman 360ÃÂÃÂ° vision, making sneaking up on him all but impossible.
