Bio:

Charles Coleman always thought that science was the key to human evolution. That Scientists were on a noble mission to thrust humanity onto its next step. He worked for Prometheus Industries, a research and development company akin to Vulcan Industries or Terrarium Inc, located in Cinder City. Inhaling fumes from a mysterious sample mixed with a number of volatile chemical he had dropped into it gave him some minor super-human properties. The change made him burn-proof and gave him the ability to create instant spontaneous combustion at a location of his choosing. Unsatisfied with these powers in terms of crime fighting, he and his best friend, James Albrite, took some of the abandoned and decommissioned experiments from Prometheus to re purpose into a crime-fighting suit.

He began superheroing under the name Firebrand. He fought against the gangs that were plaguing the cities streets. After his first tangle with a villain calling himself the Mind Master, the CEO of Prometheus, Russel Lacer, became furious that a vigilante was stealing his companies assets. After discovering the FIrebrand’s identity he locks Charles in a recently decommissioned machine designated The Fountain of Youth, hoping to kill him and make it look like an accident. Instead of killing him the machine transforms him into a Primal Beast with enhanced attributes and fire control. The beast breaks free and is subdued by the Mind Master. The two of them break into Prometheus where a showdown ends up killing Lacer, causes the Mind Master to flee, and reverts Firebrand back to a human form. Albrite is made the new CEO of the company and officially endorses The Firebrand as the companies personal super-hero.

The idea of R&D companies sponsoring Metahumans kicks off a Shadow War. Companies create “mascot” heroes to defend their companies and cites, and some create Metahuman spies or thieves to steal other company’s assets. Firebrand stands in the path of any dangerous element that dares threaten Cinder City, or Prometheus Industries.
