Abilities: Iron will, crazy luck
Jack Dynamite is the first real superhero. Before even the Golden Age of Heroes, Jack led the charge in what is sometimes labeled the “Pulp Age of Heroes” in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Growing up as a settler in what would grow into the mega-city of Emperador, Jack Dynamite made an array of strange friends who accompanied him on countless adventures all around the world (and beyond). It can be hard to differentiate which of his adventures are true accounts and which are gross exaggeration. Some even go so far as to say that he couldn’t have existed with all of the things he’s credited with, but historians can’t seem to attach a different name to any of Jack’s discoveries, and so his legacy goes on.
Alongside stories of Jack fighting off villains of every quality stand tales of him finding and exploring the bizarre island of Agusta, where many of his dime-novel style adventures take place. On the island he was said to have encountered prehistoric dinosaurs, magical artifacts, and strange alien technology.
