History: Not much is known about Paralyzer before his first appearance. He claims to have worked a dozen call centers before deciding to use his powers as a criminal.

He, along with the rest of the team that would come to be known as Freedom Force, first came to public attention when they attempted to rob an armored car in Washington, DC, only to have their efforts thwarted by Captain America and his partner-in-training, Bucky, who were there to testify in front of the Senate Committee on Superhuman Affairs.

While sitting in a federal prison awaiting trial, Paralyzer and his teammates were given the option to become government agents under the direction of Department of Homeland Security agent Valerie Cooper as an alternative to SHIELD's Sentinel program, in exchange for having the charges for their armored car robbery dropped. Accepting, Paralyzer and the others were given the name Freedom Force.

As a member of Freedom Force, Paralyzer has come into conflict with the Renegades and Captain America, the latter in a case of mistaken intentions while both were investigating the Serpent Squad.

Role-Playing Notes:

Paralyzer is a mercenary, in a cause only for the money. He appreciates that he's getting a stable paycheck in Freedom Force, but won't hesitate to take the occasional side job on either side of the law if he thinks he can get away with it. He is also quite the womanizer, making a pass at any available attractive woman, including – to her chagrin – his boss, Val Cooper!

Design Notes:

1. DHS Rank is derived from Social Engineering: Pulling Rank, based off using the Department of Homeland Security as a 20-point Patron with an assistance roll of 9 or less. It does not affect his Status.

2. I went with "Paralyzer" rather than "Shocker" for his name because of the two names he's used in the comics I thought it was the better one. The Resistants had some really good names in their line-up (and a few generic ones... I'm looking at you, Quill).

3. Sadly, I don't have a pic of him with the metal over his hands and feet like his Resistants outfit had, but in an outfit closer to his Mutant Force uniform. I'm wary of giving him claws like his 616 version. Really, how does he stand on those feet-claws?
