Bulldog Powers is a Welsh superhero and member of the legendary Powers family. He is a direct cousin of Lyon Powers and an adopted cousin to Galatea Powers and Furia Powers. He is also a member of the premiere European superhero group Dawn Patrol and holds an honorary membership in the Guardians of the Dawn hero group.
Bulldog Powers is a member of the legendary Powers Family in Wales. He is the biological cousin to Lyon Powers as well as the adopted cousin to Galatea Powers and Furia Powers.
Like many others in his family, Charles “Chuck” Powers knew he was destined for greatness in the United Kingdom. But with a superhero dynasty that is publically known, being a member of the Powers family also means coming across family members from the various villains that his relatives put away. That meant that Bulldog had to defend himself from retribution, and, boy, did he ever!
Chuck was always in fights. He wouldn’t start any of them, but he made sure that he finished them. While this would normally be a bad thing, most people knew who the Powers family were and why Chuck had to be in a fight, and why he would win them.
Putting him in private school helped him for his teenaged years, but only as long as school was in session. When he wasn’t learning, he was brawling. He would fight in pubs, he would fight in back alleys, he would fight in abandoned buildings and parking lots.
Eventually he needed a mentor that could reach him. The Celtic Brawler, a long-time friend of the family and a member of Dawn Patrol, handily took up the challenge.
Finally, when he turned 18, Chuck was ready to join the Patrol. He didn’t even have to work hard on his code-name either. It was what he always saw himself as, a scrappy bulldog!
Following Furia Powers's first Christmas as an adopted member of the extended Powers family, Bulldog asked his cousins if he could join them in Paragon City to see what things are like there. With permission from both the Dawn Patrol and the FBSA, he was able to transition his hero credentials to America, operating as an honorary member of and sponsored by the Guardians of the Dawn. Once in America, Chuck found that he could find people to fight with at almost every corner.
But Chuck wasn't there just to fight. Furia asked him to keep an eye on John Cole, Galatea's boyfriend and teammate. There were some things that were off about Cole according to Furia, and she needed someone to follow Cole that he wouldn't suspect.
In addition to that, Bulldog was also asked to help the Guardians take on the corrupt members of the city's police department. To that end, Bulldog was the one that took down Lawdog after Lawdog was given false information on where to find a potential witness.
He is still in Paragon City and still keeping an eye on John Cole for his cousins.
