The Labyrinth in Emerald City
The ice powered vigilante, “Cryoshot”, John Tucker is a former NFL linebacker with a heart of gold. In his football career, he was always giving money to charity, helping those in need, and fighting for what is right. But that quickly came to an end, in the most disastrous way possible. Out on the streets of Emerald City with his wife, Lucy Tucker, John witnessed an old man being mugged in an alley next to the restaurant they were planning on dining at. Always the hero, John tried to intimidate the mugger into giving the bag back to the old man, but the criminal ran off into the streets. In pursuit, John ends up getting stabbed in the streets of Emerald City, and was almost ran over by a truck driver.
Desperate to avoid the bleeding man, the driver accidentally swerved too sharply, jack-knifing the truck and breaking open the side, flooding the street in the chemicals that it was carrying. Bathing in the fluid somehow changed the genetic structure of John Tucker, making him ice cold to the touch, and was given the ability to form shards of ice that he could create and fire from his palms, among many other fantastical abilities. Realizing what he can do, John Tucker adopted the name “Cryoshot”, and is now hunting the streets of Emerald City for more criminals, criminals he can now stop. As of the present, Lucy doesn’t know of his abilities, believing that John quit the NFL after suffering PTSD.
