"What might have been..."

William Connor's parents weren't rich by any means. Bill grew up having to fight and learning that if you wanted something, it was up to you to get it - and if you wanted to keep it, you'd best be ready to fight for it. By his middle teens, he'd become known on the streets as a fierce fighter, getting challenged regularly by others who wanted to make a name for themselves.

Eventually, though, he'd made too many enemies. He found himself herded onto the docks one day, a few gangs sending their heavies after him along with some cannon fodder. Numbers made the difference, and Bill was finally beaten down to near-death. Tied up and weighted down, he was chucked in the water and left for dead.

The bay was popular for dumping not just bodies but questionable industrial waste, as well. This waste mixed freely in the waters and found its way painfully into Bill's cuts and breaks. He was lucky - he hit that one in a billion chance combination that didn't kill him. Instead, it bound to him, made him tougher and stronger. He made his way out of the bay, gathered his strength and marveled at his new abilities - including creating a toxic cloud around himself which could stun his enemies, drive them into a panic or just eat away at them, slowly draining their health.

A month later, he struck, taking his revenge and decimating the gangs that had turned on him. He then turned his sights to bigger things...

Other information

For a while, this was the closest the game would allow to the original concept behind "Memphis Bill," the character inspired by its player's Silver Age Sentinels character. Dark Armor fit the "toxic" aura far better than the original Fire tank, and Superstrength was a given. The character was brought to its final iteration on the Guardian server when Tanks had Dark Armor ported to them.

This character is played by the forum user of the same name, Memphis_Bill, and is one of multiple variations on the character.
