Background

Jonathan J. Sterling is a prominent financier from London. However, he also has another more secret identity; that of the Uber-human terrorist known as Sterling. No one has realised that the two are actually the same person. Sterling has gotten very wealthy from his business, but he has never thought that the wealth was enough which led him to start using his powers to commit some high profile robberies. That, in turn, brought him into conflict with many European uber-humans, as well as undermining Shamrock, cheating her out of a major art theft. She has never forgiven his interference and believes he is linked to former I.R.A. money laundering (which isn't true).

As Sterling, Jonathan has been quite the successful super-villain. However, it still wasnít enough for him. It was at that time that Sterling decided to travel across Europe looking for ubers worthy enough to aid him in his crimes. This was the foundation of the group known as T.I.T.A.N. or The International Terrorist Assault Network. However, unknown to the average super-hero is the simple fact that T.I.T.A.N. acts in ways to promote Jonathonís business.

Personality

Money is Jonathanís god. He can never seem to get enough of it. While heís a wealthy man he always wants more. He uses his Sterling persona to terrorize and ruin his competitors. Sterling is very British, thinking that the British are the only ones meant to rule the world, and that only the British can make a decent cup of tea.

Quote

"I think that a blow to the European market will be good for business. At least for me.Ē

Powers

Sterling is an uber with the ability to project a blinding aura around his body. He can make the light so bright that it could permanently blind a person. The light is so intense that it can also cause extreme pain by sensory overload. Sterling is protected by a field of light that acts like a force field. Also for unknown reasons Sterling is able to fly. He is also almost invulnerable to light-based attacks.

In addition to his uber powers, Sterling is a very wealth man, who controls one of Britain most powerful finance houses.

Appearance

Sterling looks like a man made out of silver. Heís so shiny that itís painful to look directly at him due to the glare. For a costume, Sterling wears a loose fitting tunic and trousers with a cape. His costume is made from expensive white silk. Only the best for Sterling.

When not in his super-villain guise, Jonathan looks like a proper English gentleman with long silvery hair. He wears clothing typical of a wealthy British financier. Sometimes he will walk with a silver cane.
