Real Name: Osvald Samson
Appearance: The most standout feature of Osvald is his green hair. A trait he inherited from his biological father, Leonard Samson
. From a glance, this seems to be the only trait he inherited from Leonard, as he lacks the height and muscular frame of his father. Having a much leaner build. With emerald green eyes, Osvald’s angular features tend to give him a rather piercing glare.
When not fighting crime, Osvald tends to wear casual clothes with a more formal bend. Like a T-shirt and blazer. However, when fighting crime, he wears a pair of black tactical pants
and an Asgardian armoured vest
Personality: Osvald tries to be a laid back individual, though often struggles with keeping his temper in check. Often looking for an outlet, whether that training or whatever sport he is allowed to play considering his abilities.
He is rather confident in his powers, sometimes to the point of being cocky. Especially considering his relatively young age and thus his powers are rather under developed.
Powers/Abilities: Osvald Samson is half Asgardian, half Human (Gamma Mutate). Given his young (in comparison to other Asgardians) age, most if not all his Asgardian powers are yet to manifest. Though it could be theorised that it bolsters his strength, but most of his superhuman strength comes from being empowered by Gamma Radiation.
- Superhuman Strength: While not exposed to a dosage of gamma radiation as great as the Hulk, the Abomination, or even the She-Hulk, Samson was granted great superhuman strength. As a result of his gamma ray exposure, he possessed sufficient superhuman strength to lift about 70 tons. His great strength also extends into the powerful muscles of his legs, allowing him to leap great heights and distances, though far less than the Hulk or Abomination. Samson has been known to leap approximately 580 feet straight up into the air, and to a maximum reported distance of 910 feet.
- Superhuman Stamina: As in the case of the Hulk, She-Hulk and Abomination, the gamma ray exposure has dramatically increased the efficiency of Samson's musculature, though not as greatly. As a result, his musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of a normal human. Samson can physically exert himself at peak capacity for about 24 hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him.
- Superhuman Durability: Samson's gamma ray enhanced physique is much harder and more resistant to physical injury than a normal human. Samson's skin is able to resist penetration wounds from high caliber bullets or blades composed of most conventional materials. Samson is also physically durable enough to withstand multiple blows from the Hulk, while in an enraged emotional state, and sustain little to no injury. His bones and muscles are strong and resilient enough to be able to survive a fall at terminal velocity reached after free-falling 4,000 feet in a feet-first attitude at 145 miles per hour against sidewalk concrete, provided he lands upright. Even if he doesn't land upright, Samson wouldn't sustain serious physical injury.
Though he may unlock more powers later, or become even stronger should he be exposed to Gamma Radiation or Asgardian Magic.
Avengers Sponsor: Bruce Banner/The Hulk
History: Osvald Samson never really knew his real parents.
Leonard Samson had a short relationship with an Asgardian woman, which resulted in the pregnancy. The pregnancy was kept hidden from Leonard when she returned to Asgard. When he was born, his green hair made him an outcast. As an infant, he was sent to Midgard as they thought it was bad omen.
He was left at an orphanage with a note with his name on it.
Osvald never really fit in, given his green hair, and predisposition to throwing tantrums. It quickly became apparent he was no ordinary kid, as he started to exhibit his superhuman powers. So, was sent to a SHIELD sponsored orphanage for super powered individuals. After various tests, training and experiments, his file was buried in the SHIELD database as HYDRA sought him as a potential asset. He was taken to a Siberian research facility under the guise of extra training to work alongside the Avengers. The whole time, they kept convincing him he would be fighting for good, while actually training him to fight for Evil. When he was sixteen, he started to get an inclination that something wasn’t quite right. So he broke out to live on his own. Thinking he was old enough to survive on his own.
He spent the next years of his life in relative peace. Living alone in a log cabin in Siberia. His enhanced physiology made it a lot easier to survive. It wasn’t until Bruce found him while investigating an unusually high concentration of Gamma Radiation near an old HYDRA base that he considered joining the NEO initiative. Convinced by Bruce in that it would be a could opportunity to understand more about his condition. So, at 20 years old, Osvald made his way to New York to join the world’s mightiest heros.
