Description: The Hammer is tall and very heavy, standing 6'1" and weighing 475 lbs. His wild card power has granted him massive physical strength and virtual immunity to physical harm. It has also altered his metabolism, replacing his skeletal structure with heavy metal compounds, and allowing him to regenerate from any physical damage that occurs to him. He barely has to sleep, is virtually tireless, and is somewhat faster than normal people. The Hammer prefers to keep out of the public eye. He thinks of himself as a joker and wants little to do with the typical ace 'heroics.’

Campaign Use and Designer’s Notes: The Hammer appeared briefly in the novels, but I do recall a very HERO System moment in one story. Hammer gets hit with most of an Ak-47’s magazine and slowly slumps to the ground afterwards. He’s out cold due to the sheer number of shots but is otherwise unharmed. Just like a Champions brick taking a mass of STUN, but no BODY.

As written, Hammer makes for a good low-point brick, although you could ups his DEX to 18 or 20 and his CSLs to HTH if you wanted him to be more in line with 350-point supers.
