•From the pages of Astro City comes the titular locations greatest nocturnal crime-fighter, preying on those who would prey on the innocent. A Catholic Priest in the 19th century who was turned into a vampire, he hid away in a cathedral he helped build for years, turning to prayer to resist his thirst for blood. Eventually, he became a costumed hero, spurred on by the early few who gave him hope that a man could hide who he truly was and yet still be accepted by society. Since then, he's had a long run, and his skills have grown to complement his natural powers.
•Take a vampire's preternatural speed, toughness, and reflexes, add decades of street-fighting experience, and you get one nasty customer. Even with a hefty dose of Drawbacks, the Confessor is still laden with points, and that suits me just fine. After all, for all his versatility, he's still street-level, and a strong super-human could bypass his Impervious and put some serious hurt on him. Still, he's very effective, and if you add Altar Boy into the mix (which I will, shortly), there are few who can hope to stand against this shadowy hero. His Invisibilty is less a power and more of a complication as, while it does hide him from cameras and the like, people can still see him, and the fact that they can't in a mirror only outs his hidden nature.
