'The Blackhawk' revealed as fourth NHL Guardian
The Blackhawk

(Click image to enlarge)

"The Blackhawk" is a multi-faceted character as diverse as the city of Chicago itself. The Blackhawk is very fun to be around, he has a blue-collar sensibility, he's serious when the need arises but it's not his preferred state of mind. He's mostly a happy go lucky man's man, very much like a big kid. He prides himself on being the guy who the others look to when situations look bleak. In his words, "Jump on my big shoulders and let's get it done."

The look of the Blackhawk is in contrast to his everyman personality as his body is covered in gleaming metallic body armor. On his back, he has six wing blades that when deployed extend from his body and allow him to fly like a human dragonfly. The Blackhawk is also an environmental "empathy" that is able to control the element of wind.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
