Alias: Joseph Young
Age: adult, young
Appearance: Though capable of appearing in any number of guises, Mighty Joe generally appears as a tall (6'4") black man, clean shaven and shaved head, muscular build. His costume has no symbol, and is dark black (so black that it is hard to determine what color it is - it has a dull nature to it.) Were it not for his impressive build and size, he would easily blend into a crowd - he seems to be of very average appearance.
Personality: Joe is not very talkative, instead he prefers to sit back and listen. When he has something to contribuute, he has no qualms speaking his part. He is not terribly gregarious, but he is not aloof - in fact, he is friendly and a good listener. He seems to often be in tune with people's emotions, even when they are trying to hide them.
Powers: He has the strength of many men, extreme ruggedness, the ability to alter his appearance. Thus far, he has taken forms from that of a Girl Scout and a 7 year old boy to tall, powerful men and forms in between. His transformation seems to be instataneous, and he can also mimick voices.
Skills: Joe is a skilled mechanic, adept at repairing mechanical and electronic devices. He also is a skilled combatant, in melee, thrown and unarmed situations. He carries a truncheon and several types of thrown weapons.
