Description: Welcome to one of the most powerful aces in the Wild Cards universe! Captain Trips (named after the late Jerry Garcia), has the ability to transform himself into a number of different forms, or "friends." Each of these alternate personalities are potent aces in their own right, although that doesn't mean they will agree with what ever it is the good Captain is involved in.

Mark Meadows is tall and very thin, standing 6'2" and weighing about 160 lbs. He has shoulder length hair and a goatee. He is exceedingly intelligent and is probably the most brilliant biochemist in the world. He is also quite the burned-out hippie. As Captain Trips, Mark wears (in effect) a purple and white Uncle Sam suit, complete with top hat and a flower in the button hole. Each of his "friends" however, looks very different. It should be noted that Mark has assumed two other forms aside from the five mentioned here. One is the Radical, a youthful blonde-haired man clad only in jeans and wearing a peace medallion. The other was called Monster, stood something like 60' tall and was strong enough to toss around T-72 tanks with ease.

Campaign Use and Designer’s Notes: Captain Trips is probably a bit much for any campaign (unless you like really unconventional ideas). However, if you break up his “friends” then you just gained five new NPCs for your setting. Of the five, I’d say Jumping Jack Flash, Moonchild, and Star Shine make the transition to 4-color comics best. Besides, who can’t use a flying energy projector, a shadow-dwelling martial artist, and a flying solar-powered brick?
