Rob Mahogany is an in-game character in the world of Champions Online MMO and the "leading anchor" of WCOC.

Character History

Rob Mahogany is one of "those" guys. You know "that" guy. The Alpha-Male, BMOC, fake-it-'till-you-make-it kind of guy. The guy that you "know" will be a TV anchor someday. He's the one that will tell you that you too can be a TV superstar just like him if you work hard like he did and pay your dues like he did.

Well, the truth is that he didn't. Work hard, that is. Play hard, sure. But work? Nope.

Rob has been a player all through his adult life. He looked good for the camera and he reads things perfectly. He could have been an actor, but he decided that it would be easier to be a TV anchor instead. He auditioned for a weekend spot for a local TV station and he got it, mostly because he was the only one who looked like he knew what he was doing. That got him down the road to being a TV news guy.

The programming manager of WCOC at the time was a woman and Rob knew how to play her like a grand piano. Soon he was doing the weekend news for Millennium City. A few years later, he was working the weekday. And then, with the retirement of the crusty old news anchor, Rob was given the green light to take his place not only as the evening news anchor, but also as the senior news official.

It wasn't easy. He had competition. But Rob knew who to suck up to in order to get the spot.

And now, he is "the man".

Powers and Abilities

If ego were really a power, he'd be all-powerful.

Unfortunately for him, it's not. He's just an ordinary guy who buckles when confronted by supervillains like Foxbat.


Rob is really full of himself. He loves what he does. He loves the attention that he gets. He loves his apartment full of things, including rich Corinthian leather. He also loves his 'stache, because that's what drives the ladies wild.

There is only one real challenge to his "domain", and that's Victoria Crownstone. He's tried dating her, but she sees through him.

Everyone else in the station is either a lackey or not worth knowing. They all "come and go", and if they aren't helping him, then he'd prefer they "go".

(See his Champions Wiki entry for more information.)

It is believed that the character is a parody of fictional anchor Ron Burgundy.

His first in-comic appearance was in "Future's Guardian" #12 as one of the many people taken hostage by Psyche.
