History: Marshal Goyer was born with Cerebral palsy, a debilitating movement disorder. His mother left the family shortly after Marshal’s birth; she felt that having a disabled child was too heavy a burden to bare, and Marshal instead spent his early childhood raised solely by his father, Philip Goyer. When Marshal was five, his father met Christina Fien, a therapist, who became like a second mother to Marshal. Tragedy struck on a family trip to Rosarito as the Phantom Mafia (see Phantom Mafia) murdered the Phillip and Christine. Marshal, orphaned, was turned over to Child Welfare Services.
Feeling alone and completely singled out, Marshal turned inward, away from the world, and began his search for a new identity. In school, Marshal found solace in his study of science, and in it the possibility of fulfilling his dream of walking. In college he pursued a degree in Robotics and began to test experimental mobility technologies. Using himself as the test subject, Marshal equipped himself with a new mobility exoskeleton and, risking his life in the process, activated his invention. To Marshal’s surprise, the electromagnetic body armor did exactly what was planned. Wearing it, he could fly, was impervious to most gunfire and had increases in strength, mobility, and endurance.
The unexpected success of his exoskeleton excited Marshal so much that he hastily decided in that moment that he must become a superhero. Having voraciously read tales of rescue and heroism, Marshal was inspired to use his new powers to help others. The only way to hide the exoskeleton was by covering himself with his black bathrobe, his quickly thrown-together costume. The robe however proved untenable; in the night air the robe got in the way as he used a pair of swords for fighting crime and tried to navigate the night environment. Marshal needed a full, masked costume before his true identity was revealed. He made an impulsive decision and traded the infamous Dr. Psycho (see Dr. Psycho) his electromagnetism technology for bulletproof, full-cover armor. Psycho is a powerful mob boss who lives two lives; by day he is a caring psychologist and by night a power-mad psychopath. Living dual lives makes it easy for him to get away with anything, and because of this he is respected and feared in the criminal underworld of South Hauntington Beach.
With this suit Fearsome Flyer feels unstoppable, untouchable, and definitely unbeatable. With this nearly unshakeable belief, his will to triumph, to never give up becomes stronger, so strong it becomes virtually impossible to resist him in his mission of ridding the streets of crime and all illicit activities. Neither a friend nor a foe challenges his acceptance in South Hauntington Beach, which is something his disability has prepared him for. It is unclear the impact that the trade Fearsome Flyer made with Dr. Psycho will have on both his mission and on South Hauntington Beach.
Strength level: Fearsome Flyer possess the normal human strength of a man his age, height and build who engages in moderate regular exercise. When his strength is augmented by his exoskeleton, he can lift 40 tons.
Known superhuman powers: None
Paraphernalia and weaponry: His sword is what makes him a flyer, give him two and he becomes twice as dangerous. Being tightly woven around the base by a wired system concealed within his body armor, a simple means of activation produces an electromagnetic hyper surcharge of electromagnetic voltage.
With this added feature, the creates an electromagnetic force field of kinetic energy around him which no bullet can pierce. Nobody knows about or understands this feature but Dr. Psycho.
Paraphernalia and resources: This superhuman starts out depending on his own source of technology as a means for flying, or being electromagnetically pulled to his swords opposite kinetic charge. Over time and networking with the right scientifically educated friends, his resources were expanded. After tampering with government technology, he forced SCICORP to assist him with any further technology needed.
Abilities: Fearsome Flyer is perfecting the skills of a defensive swordsman, meaning he respects the code of conduct and he will not draw blood unless absolutely necessary.
Confidence is the only power he feeds upon, there are no super powers he possesses, he is driven by his super abilities by focusing on what he still has.
He doesn’t really possesses superhuman powers, though science is what thrives upon. Electromagnetism is what gives him his super abilities. Without this, he would be nothing. This tool of kinetic energy is gives him the ability to fly. He points his sword to the beams of a building and is drawn to them. Doctor Psycho is the only one who understands he can attain an electromagnetic force field. He understands his abilities so well for two reasons, one is that he’s himself a psycho, and two is because Fearsome Flyer made a deal with the devil to become who he is today. He willingly traded his technology for Doctor Psycho to trade the body armor of a true ninja warrior.
This man has no superpowers, only super abilities, harnessed by a high school lab project perfected by him in the many hours where most in his situation dwell on what they can’t do, instead he is reminded what he still can do, and adjusts to the situation, using the time to perfect it. Electromagnetism is what helps the the masked ninja warrior regain his ability to walk, and it does much more. He uses a pair of swords, first experimenting with just one, to be drawn to metal objects ie. mimicking flying. Nobody talks to him, hence the day in the wheelchair, or the night as Fearsome Flyer. Is it for fear of being different by using a wheelchair, or are people unsure whether to thank our hero, or to avoid a revolting maniac who just saved their lives. He has learned to not expect gratitude by those who fear a difference in the societal norm.
With a unanimous number of positive characteristics it becomes hard to focus on the negative characteristic, in reality he uses a wheelchair. Although this is his life in the day, being a night time crime fighter has allowed him to redefine himself. is he going to sit at home feeling sorry for himself, or is he going to rid the streets of crime, and end unjust practices.

An original comic series has been written to focus on the emotions inside the heads of the disabled, also in hope of giving these great people a long awaited role model to look up to in times of doubt. A goal of expanding to many original comic series serving this purpose has been set. If you would like to learn more about the series read The Inferno blogs.
A band by the name of Legion Draxsen believes in this project so much that they have released a single for this very purpose , to raise money for this comic charity. Every download from itunes will go towards giving the disabled community a second chance. This project will work on leveling the playing field so nobody is under represented.
