Background

Born in Hong Kong, Felipe Mansho was the son of an international model and a Chinese political activist. His father was killed when he was young and Felipe has never fully dealt with that tragedy. He grew into a very angry young man who dominated his frail mother. He was intelligent but not as intelligent as he believed. Inevitably he was beaten up by students at his school.

But instead of being subdued, Felipe burst into a super-heated black form and fought back, killing two of the students and critically wounding two more. His mother couldn't cope anymore and disappeared. The police were after Felipe, but before he could be arrested the Gang of Five intervened and took him to Beijing where he was treated like a lab rat.

Felipe didn't cope well with being probed.

The scientist Shao Jun, who would later become the uberhuman Pig, unwittingly released Felipe and he escaped. It was night and under the cover of darkness his black body was difficult to trace. He managed to escape to Taiwan and from there he made his way to South America in search of his mother. In his time of desperate need he believed that his mother would look after him.

But she was gone.

Felipe found himself in the care of Emerald Crane, an enigmatic master who lived in a slum city outside Rio de Janeiro. He never questioned how Emerald Crane found him or why, but the master showed him compassion, which was something he had never experienced before. He was humbled. For several years he became more or less tolerant and subdued. Emerald Crane paid for him to attend university and to study his uberhuman abilities.

Emerald Crane planned to use Felipe as a weapon and encouraged him to create dual lives: one as a scientist and the other as a martial artist.

After Emerald Crane's death, Felipe began to revert to his obnoxious form and in the leadership vacuum of the past two years Felipe has developed a god-complex. He has no checks and is spiralling out of control, something the other members of Emerald Crane are all too aware of. They know that they will need to deal with him soon.

Personality
Carvao is supremely confident of his abilities and believes that he is beyond most of what goes on around him. He has even begun to turn down assignments because he deems them unworthy of his attention. As a scientist he is also overconfident and not generally liked, although he doesn't stand out too much in the crowds of white lab coats.

He believes that his powers are better than his team mates and plots to take over the team, and eventually exert his powers over larger groups and potentially even a country. He has never really overcome his feelings of abandonment by his father and mother.
Quote
Carvao: "We will pull out the weeds of this planet and make it a more ascetic place to live."
Anaconda: "If you can get passed his overly pretentious verbal garbage, he's really a good killer."
Powers

Carvao absorbs energy which triggers a metabolic change in his body. At will he can transform into a pitch black humanoid with glowing yellow eyes which allow him to see into the infrared spectrum. And in this form he is able to withstand almost limitless amounts of energy, project the energy he has stored as well as fly through the sky and underwater. He has peak human physical attributes as well as some martial arts training.

Appearance

Carvao means coal in Portuguese. When transformed he appears as an imposing man made of pitch black energy. His eyes glow yellow. He doesn't require a costume in this form, but when off-duty he generally wears severe and expensive clothing.
