"All who oppose Doctor Destroyer are destined to die by my hands! I am the dark hand of doom, his vengeful angel, his will be done through me!" - Black Talon

Black Talon is the name of both a villain and a suit of armor in the world of Champions Online.

Character History

Every world tyrant needs a strong lieutenant. Someone who will ensure that the tyrant's will shall be carried out. For Doctor Destroyer, that strong lieutenant is Black Talon.

Much like Destroyer himself, Black Talon was first created as a myth before it became reality. It was said that those that dared to cross Destroyer would be put to death by his personal "angel of death", the "Black Talon". At first, the role of "Black Talon" would be played by hired assasins, but eventually Destroyer managed to personify the identity through a special battle-armor of his own design.

Even though Destroyer was presumed dead following the Battle of Detroit, the Black Talon armor survived and was able to be used by several people.

Qularr Invasion

During a suprise invasion by the Qularr, it was discovered that the insect aliens were being provoked by equipment inside Champions Headquarters.

Defender and a newly-arrived Galatea Future managed to reach the source of the aggravation, where they confronted the Black Talon armor. Although Defender was incapacitated in the onset, it was Galatea Future that quickly managed to defeat the war machine. It was not known if the pilot of the armor is the same person from any previous incidents.

Powers and Abilities

The primary strength of Black Talon lay in the battle armor. The battle armor was designed by Doctor Destroyer to serve as his personal enforcer and executioner. To that end, it is equipped with advanced weapons, including a chain gun, rocket launchers, and an ensnarement device that can incapacitate even Defender. The armor also apparently contained tactical information on all of the Champions and was able to best determine how to overcome any of the heroes on file.

Unfortunately the lack of tactical information is also the armor's weakness, as was demonstrated when a newly-arrived Galatea Future was able to defeat it even with minimal abilities.
