BrownComplications:Freddy in my Brain:
Thanks to that alien device, Jason now has copy of his Uncle Freddy's mind inside his brain. Freddy hardly ever shuts up, constantly commenting on what's happening around them, tossing out one-liners for use, or better yet another ludicrous, multi-staged master plan. Plus Uncle Freddy has a habit of becoming fixated on something, or someone (like an attractive female hero as a luv interest or a male hero to be the #1-best buddy of!).Glory Hound:
Jason loves to be the center of attention, and makes sure to put on a good show for everyone around him while he's in the middle of doing a job. He gets a rush whenever he hears people yell the name Foxbat (even if they follow if with a few choice adult words about his sanity).Legacy:
Jason is trying to live up the reputation his lovable Uncle Freddy created for the Foxbat identity. Granted it helps he has Freddy in his head to lend a plan or three, but Jason makes it a point to not threaten children, the elderly, those that are in poor health, or mentally challenged. Just like Uncle Freddy did it.Looney as a Tune!:
Originally Jason was your happy-go-lucky, boy next door while Freddy is a simply not right in the head. The combination of their minds have left Jason slightly off himself now but nowhere near as bad as his uncle was known to be. Still with Uncle Freddy sharing ideas combined with Jason's 3 second long attention span, well hi-jinks doth happen much and Foxbat is really the only person who understands how they
came about (half the trick is getting him to explain it, in order. The other half is acutally being able to follow his logic).HAIL TO TIM TAYLOR!!:
Uncle Freddy never really understood that Tim 'the Toolman' Taylor was a character on a television show, so he thought that Tim Taylor is a real person and had devoted his life to spreading the glory that was Tim Taylor. Unfortunately thanks to the alien Mind-Disk Jason now shares this obsession and maintains the shrine in the Belfry just as obsessively as Freddy once did.Background:
The Terminus Invasion not only affected the lives of several heroes but also the lives of many villains. Many a villain helped to fight against the minions and agents of Omega in the defense of their world, after all if Omega were to destroy it then what would there be to rob from? Let alone rule over? One of those villains was the mentally unstable criminal Foxbat and his group of henchmen (Harmonious Fist, Agent Orange), granted they weren't dangerous overall but they still committed crimes, but none the less they defended their world against the forces of Omega with a passion no less equal to the heroes they normally fought against. Sadly Foxbat and his crew all died while preventing dozens of Omegadrones from raiding a nearby school and as a result of their actions their names are among the others that were put on a small memorial in a out of the way part of Heroes' Knoll in recognition of their sacrifices that day. Many of those that survived the invasion thought the trouble that Foxbat brought was finally done with.
They had no idea just how wrong they were.
Jason Brouder's life was pretty normal growing up: his parents loved him and made sure he was well taken care of and they encouraged his interest in gymnastics to the point that by the time he was a teen he'd to not only compete in the State level events but he won the Regional Championship. It was one of the best days in his life but it was marred by his teammate (and good friend) shattered his arm during his Rings competition, but that was how Jason's life had always been: whenever a good thing happened it was countered by something equally bad. Though Jason knew when he was going through a rough patch he could always count on something nice happening to take the edge off of it and Jason grew to think of himself as being the human example of yin-yang.
The Terminus Invasion was bad enough but the news of his favorite relative's, Uncle Freddy, passing made it worse. It was no secret among his family about Freddy's other life
and they always assumed he'd come to a bad end but they did take comfort that his last moments had been spent the way they were, it made them feel just the tiniest bit better about the black sheep of the family. Though Jason still took it the worst of all of
them, Freddy had been his favorite member of the family (everyone has got weird aunts and oddball uncles, but who can claim Foxbat as their uncle?). Jason always got the best birthday and Christmas presents from his nutty, but loveable uncle.
Freddy's lawyer informed the family of the terms of his will: his entire estate, including a penthouse in Freedom City, had been left to his favorite nephew Jason.
Jason was left speechless. He had been devastated by his uncle's death and while this sudden gift of wealth didn't make up for it, it sure helped to ease the pain of it. A few days later Jason was on his way to Freedom City and upon his arrival he traveled to the North Bay house that had suddenly become his. He'd never visited Uncle Freddy in Freedom City, so he was amazed by the luxury of his new home. Jason was thinking of settling down as it was; he was tired of doing the gymnastics thing and living off all of his medals and Freedom City seemed like a good place to start the next phase of his life.
Little did he know how that would manifest......
Jason spent the next few weeks cleaning out the mass of ....well junk that his uncle had accumulated. There was just no figuring where some of that stuff had come from. Other than the clutter, the place was perfect for Jason. It even had a built-in gym so he could keep up his exercise habits (no sense in getting out of shape, besides he was known for being an athlete....he had a reputation after all). It was during the third week of cleaning that Jason found something very strange. It was a hidden door, concealed behind the "shrine" to Tim Taylor. There was a hidden catch which caused the shrine to slide open, revealing a hidden elevator. Curious Jason rode it down to the hidden third basement of the building.
There he found all of Uncle Freddy's Foxbat gear, it was like Christmas all over again! Jason fingered the armored fabric of the costumes and posed with the famous Ping-Pong Ball Gun, he walked through the rooms touching and handling each piece of gear. He wasn't sure what he was going to do with it all....maybe open a Foxbat museum or something. Jason stepped back to admire the collection, absent-mindedly fiddling with a small disk-shaped object he had picked up. As he turned the disc over in front of him, he accidentally activated it and a beam of white light shot out, striking him in the forehead. He stood there transfixed as the device did as it followed it's programming.
More than anything, the Trepharians are race of warriors. The overwhelming concern of each Trepharian warrior is to perfect his fighting style then find a worthy student and teach it to them. In this way, a Trepharian warrior knows that he would never truly die. As long as his knowledge survived, he would be immortal. Occasionally though, a warrior would face a situation of certain death before he had found his student. In that case, the custom was to prepare a Mind Disk, which would store all the warrior's accumulated knowledge. His family would then pass it on to an honored student, so that the warrior would not pass completely from the circle. When a group a Trepharians, who are part of the Lor Republic, came to Earth several years ago to test themselves against the superhumans they'd begun to hear about they ran across the original Foxbat and his crew. When it was all said and done the Trepharians understood that humans are not fully developed mentally and lack the basic social skills needed to understand other races and quickly took their leave of the planet but not before Foxbat had helped himself to some of the technology on their ship (which included a Mind Disk). In the years following Foxbat would experiment with the alien equipment until he'd managed to somehow make the device work for him.
The beam from the modified Trepharian Mind Disk hit Jason and began it's work, but humans are not Trepharians however and the two species minds function in vastly different ways. So this didn't work quite like it was intended to, instead of merely conveying the skills and experiences of the first Foxbat it did something unexpectedly....... different."What the ---- Jason? Is that you?!"
Came a thought Jason hadn't thought into his mind.
"Uncle Freddy?!? What's going on? What are you doing? I thought you were dead!?!""Dead? Is Disco dead? The dodo? David Caruso's acting career? Ha! I'm as alive as any of those....uhhh hang on...wait..."
"What are you doing in my mind?!?""Freaking alien tech. Not trustworthy. Take my advice son, buy American. I prefer Congressmen; they're often inexpensive. Especially compared to Senators."
Jason dropped the Mind Disk but it was too late. Foxbat, knowing he was about to do something extremely dangerous, had copied himself into the Mind Disk and it had created a copy of Foxbat's mind in Jason's brain. Jason still had control of his body but he now had a passenger: his loony, but loveable, Uncle Freddy.
After Jason had recovered from the shock, the two of them had a long talk. It didn’t really do much; talking with Freddy was like talking with Yoda cranked up on caffeine. Finally though, Jason was able to come to an understanding with his uncle. Freddy wanted the Foxbat tradition to continue and Jason couldn't see a reason why it shouldn't. He was mostly up to the physical challenge: he was nearly a world-class gymnast and Uncle
Freddy had bought him a kung-fu school for his eighth birthday (most uncles settle for paying for lessons, but Freddy always did do things in a big way). Freddy, of course, agreed with this assessment and since he was around to provide sage advice (and master plans) he was sure Jason would have no trouble with the job. Soon Jason was practicing with the equipment and within a month Freddy deemed him ready for his first outing!
Disaster might be too harsh a word but only just barely. Foxbat went to complete some unfinished business with VIPER and the only thing that almost got finished was Jason. He escaped with his life and a deep, abiding dislike of VIPER all his own. After another two months of training and practice and Foxbat was ready to act again and this time he caught the VIPER agents by surprise. They were busy dealing with some guy wearing a
kind of power armor, which left them open to the sucker-punches Foxbat unloaded on them (ok, kept them busy enough for Exodus to get his armor's systems back online but close enough).
That brief team-up reminded Freddy of the old days. "If two are company, and three are a crowd, then four must be a freakin' circus! Where are the elephants?"
Jason got his point though, the Foxbat of old always had a cadre of low-powered villains and operatives to help him. They had all died with the first Foxbat but maybe it was time to recruit some new ones. Exodus seemed agreeable to the idea and became the first member of the new gang, which was the turning point; things only got better. And once more Foxbat became a name to be feared (or dreaded at the very least...).
