Blue Steel is an in-game character and member of the Paragon City Police Department. He can be found in front of the Police Headquarters building in Kings Row.

Character History

Josh Young was a man on a mission.

A second-generation police officer, Young decided to take crime-fighting to the next level by creating a vigilante outfit using riot gear and a huge shield fashioned after his father's police badge. He then introduced the idea to his superiors, who saw the idea of a police superhero as a way to adapt to the rise of superhero vigilantes.

In the 1980's, Blue Steel was a member of the hero group the Regulators along with the Back Alley Brawler. His association with the police force allowed the Regulators to have full police assistance in cracking down on gangs and on the scourge of drugs.

Blue Steel currently spends his time serving more as a mentor for younger heroes and for younger police officers as he stands watch over at the Police Headquarters in Kings Row.

He was also the inspiration behind the Hero Shield Program, which was designed to create super-powered police officers.

Powers and Abilities

His primary ability is War Mace, which allows him to use a police baton as part of his police training.

His secondary ability is Shield Defense. He has a custom-made shield designed as a police badge so everyone knows he is a police officer.

He also has training through the police department in special tactics and crisis intervention.

Although some people accuse him of being nothing more than a glorified police mascot, he should not be taken lightly.
