It was a dark and stormy night. Yeah... I went there.

It was a dark and stormy night as the Dollar Corp trawler made its way over heavy seas. Rocking and leaping through the churning waves like a drunken man in a mosh pit, the vessel was near its breaking point. The wind and rain whipped the crew as they fought valiantly to thread the ship through the furious ocean, but the little trawler was never designed for a journey such as this. With a scream of tearing metal the hull at last broke in two under the strain sending the F.V. Skaw Prawn, her crew and her highly illegal cargo of experimental bio-chemicals to the depths below. On the Dollar Corp official books the fishing vessel would be listed as a small loss. However, off the books the loss of the Mutagen Chemicals was incalculable. At Dollar Corp heads would roll (literally) over this disaster.

Alas, where one journey ends another begins. As the clandestine mission of the Skaw Prawn to deliver its illegal goods came to its tragic end, the future of a rather inquisitive dolphin was just beginning. Slip sliding through the undercurrents the dolphin spied the ragged bulk of the sinking ship and zoomed towards it for a look. The perfectly good haul of fresh fish the Skaw Prawn carried to cover for its more nefarious cargo drifted about the wreck in a highly delectable fashion. Such a feast was impossible for the dolphin to ignore but, as they say, there is no such thing as a free lunch. Seeping from broken containers into the surrounding water the odorless and tasteless Dollar Corp mutagen chemicals mixed about with debris, fish and one hungry dolphin. The change it would make to the unaware seafaring mammal would be swift, permanent and powerful.


The dolphin (who would come to be known in press as "Max") left the wreck with a belly full of fish and mutagen chemicals to rejoin his pod. Dolphins are a fun-loving, happy, intelligent and social lot and Max was no exception. He loved his mates in the pod and the wide ocean to jump and play in. But as the days passed Max began to realize he was becoming different than the other dolphins. He could jump much, much higher out of the water. If he saw a fish he wished to eat the ocean would bring the fish to him. When sharks came around Max commanded them to go away, and they would.

In a few weeks Max had mastered great powers. Always helpful and friendly, Max used his new gifts to keep the pod well fed and free from danger. And that is just about the time when Dollar Corp Ocean Operations had finished recovering the wreck of the Skaw Prawn, put a few conclusions together and went tearing through Max's neck of the ocean looking for anything odd. And what they found was a flying dolphin.


Weakness To Earth

      Character Weakness to Earth:


Fast Forward...

Trapped! Trapped under dirt, rock and sand in the harsh desert of Arizona. Dolphins, an aquatic creature, generally do not do well on dry land. Even less so when buried alive underneath it. How had it come to this?

The Dollar Corporation had turned its greedy eye and vast technological resources towards capturing Max, which they did eventually. Dollar Corp was quite determined to reconstruct their mutagen chemicals. Max found himself transported to a secret lab in the Arizona desert, there to be dissected and liquefied. However, those insidious plans were thwarted with a daring escape by Max on the landing strip. Max flew towards freedom perused by a Dollar Corp tracking missile. The missile zipped close to Max and exploded. The concussive blast slammed Max the Flying Dolphin to the ground at the base of a desert mountain and triggered an avalanche.

This could be the end of Max the Flying Dolphin.


Weak Strength

     Weak Enhanced Strength: weak


Now Max isn't a particularly big dolphin, but even the biggest and most powerful dolphin is still an awkward creature on dry land. They have no arms or legs. Dolphins are built to swim, not to dead lift heavy rocks against the force of gravity on dry land. Soon buried under an avalanche, all seemed hopeless for Max


A Tenacious Fighter

     Enhanced Willpower: superior


But Max would never give up. A tenacious creature, Max would fight to the bitter end. Besides that, Max suddenly found that he was really, really angry with Dollar Corp. Really angry. Something of a new emotional experience for Max, this sudden anger lent him purpose.


Everyone Loves A Dolphin

     Enhanced Charisma: superior


Everyone seems to just love a dolphin, and why shouldn't they? They are generally benign and friendly beings. They aren't out eating swimmers and getting all "Jaws" on anyone. They do tricks, fetch balls and always seem to be smiling. Max wondered... just what the hell is wrong with these assholes and what do they have against dolphins anyways? What terrible things are they planning to do to other dolphins? Why do they hate us? Max did not have the answers but he was now prepared to pay them back in full for what he had been given.


Water Control

     Water: supreme (rank 3)

  • Ranged Attack
  • Area Affect
  • Multi-Attack
  • Target Seeker


So dry. So, so dry. The desert air was dry. The sand and dirt and grit was dry. Buried in rock and sand and too weak to lift free of it Max naturally turned to his amazing control of water which was so very powerful in the ocean seas. Instinctively he could generate just enough from what little ambient moisture was available to keep his body slick and protected for the time being. Though Max was ignorant in the ways of geology it was his good fortune to have been blown into a dry riverbed. Max sensed the water hidden deep in the ground below. Concentrating, pulling the water to him, Max bid it to rise. Slowly it responded. At first it came seeping up in drops which created a thick gritty mud around him. As he bent his will and reached deeper, it began to come in streams. Using the water at his command Max slipped his way out of the rubble and free.


Mental Pictures

     Telepathy: standard (rank 1)

  • Ranged Attack
  • Area Affect


The Dollar Corp goons sped to the buried dolphin in their jeeps intent on retrieving the corpse quickly for the science lab. They would find no corpse today, however. What they found was a mud covered and very pissed off sea mammal. Max does not understand the language of humans but can communicate nonetheless. He has found he has the ability to put mental pictures into the minds of other creatures and see the mental pictures in theirs. The goons were treated to the mental image of being ripped apart by sharks.


Water Shield Bubble

     Force Field Generation: supreme (rank 3)

  • Area Affect


Raising their guns to fire the Dollar Corps mercenaries were crack shots. But it was too late for bullets. The water continued to flow and Max had encased himself in a large, protective bubble of hardened water. The tide, as they say, had turned. Water tendrils whipped up from the ground around the goons. Tearing, smacking, drowning, ripping - fired by the anger Max felt and focused upon them. Those that could fled.


The Flying Dolphin

     Flight: standard (rank 1)

  • Area Affect


Now Max can only be considered an adequate flier. He is not particularly speedy. (Of course, being able to fly at all is more than can be said for most dolphins). But one advantage Max does have is that he can also cause other things fly along with him. This comes in very handy when Max wants to fly around surrounded by water... which is pretty much always since he is an aquatic creature after all. Still, he could certainly fly well enough to get out of missile range immediately, which is exactly what he did.

The Arizona desert was hardly the place for a dolphin and so Max was headed for that sweet, sweet salt water in the Gulf of Mexico. But there would be another day Dollar Corp. Oh yes, another time would come. On the seas and on the coasts Dollar Corp had made an enemy which would soon prove to cause them no end of trouble.
