Notes:

This is a revised Batman First Wave built with the Savage Worlds Super Powers Companion.  He’s built with Street Level campaign points (30), the Super Karma rule (+5 points) and three advances (15 XP) that still leaves him at Novice experience level.  I would have liked to squeeze in a couple extra Edges just so I can use some from Thrilling Tales but it is what it is.

 

New Web Host

I had to switch hosting providers because they decided to change the pricing on their plans.  I would end up getting much less for almost double what I was paying.  It’s a shame because I’ve never had a problem with their service and was with them for over 10 years.

Astronomy Day

It’s Astronomy Day.  I would be remiss in not posting something.

History
Uri’s mother Elana emigrated from Russia with her parents, younger sister and four brothers. His father, Max Jones is a retired Air Force colonel and current senator.  With one parent being an immigrant and the other a former serviceman, Uri grew up in a very patriotic household.

After graduating from college he followed in his fathers footsteps and enlisted in the Air Force becoming a Pararescueman.  There he excelled and quickly rose through the ranks becoming a team leader.

He was recruited into the Secret Service by his former commander and then on to the ‘G-Men’ team when the government wanted it’s own specialized team of costumed operatives to investigate super powered crimes and liaise with the burgeoning superhero community.

His role on the team is Field Commander.

Personality
Family man. very intelligent and has an amazing grasp of tactics.

Dressed as a typical Secret Service agent; black suit, sunglasses, ear piece and wrist mic.  He also has a more tactical outfit consisting of black fatigues, body armor and an M4.

Equipment
S&W M&P40

Design Notes
The patriotic costume had to go.  Not because it was patriotic but because it was hideous looking.  Although the costume does indeed show up…
