One of the Original Three superheroes
Scott Branson was an FBI forensic criminologist, working out of the NYC office. His project was the precursor to the FBI’s Prometheus Project called ARSENAL. The goal was to devise a self-contained suit of battle armor.
Then Scott discovered corruption among the project management: a higher-up was selling tech secrets to the mob. He took the evidence to someone he trusted, which turned out to be a mistake.
He came home one day to find his wife and son murdered, and his daughter clinging to life. Filled with rage, he broke into his own lab and stole the ARSENAL prototype to seek revenge. He destroyed all of the project notes and computers and used the armor to bring the rogue agents and the Mafia to justice.
