Tyrannus 4 is a member of The Libra Order
He was created by Statesman's arch-enemy, Nemesis in a convoluted plan to replace Statesman. But trying to create a duplicate of Statesman is impossible, since Statesman's incarnate powers come from the Well of the Furies. After three previous failures, the fourth attempt at replicating some of Statesman's abilities finally bore fruit. But in the eyes of the Prussian Prince of Automation, this still wasn't enough. He was ready to terminate his latest creation and abandon the whole project when Libra offered to take the clone of his hands.
"Tyrannus", an alias Cole originally took when he secretly returned to Paragon City before embarking on his heroic career, was sent to the Rogue Isles to learn all he could from the villains there. He would gain their trust and build up enough experience and power before embarking on his ultimate mission... seek out Lord Recluse and then kill him and take over Arachnos.
To aid in his understanding of villains, he was put under the observation of The Libra Order, Libra's personal group.

Powers and Abilities
Tyrannus 4's primary ability is Super-Strength. He is immensely strong.
His secondary ability is Willpower. Although not as indestructible as Statesman, Tyrannus 4 can take a lot of damage.
He also has the ability to fly.
It is unknown if he would eventually possess any kind of incarnate ability, never mind the mastery of Zeus lightning that Statesman possessed.
Because Tyrannus is a clone of Marcus Cole, he possesses some of the memories and personalities of the original through blood memory. There is much he remembers up to his visit to the Well of the Furies. This was a dangerous period for Cole as his morality was challenged as he searched for a cure for Mustard Gas. This means that Tyrannus is willing to do what Statesman would not.
Tyrannus keeps to himself because he does not want others to know that he is Marcus Cole. This is especially true when it comes to John Cole, the illegitimate son of the real Marcus Cole.
