Background

A Hong Kong native, Peter made his mark in Chinese action movies as a stuntman, extra, combat specialist, and occasional actor. Although he loved the limelight that came from acting, his favorite part of his job was staging elaborate stunts, or gags, and taking their inherent dangers to the limit. He liked to claim that he'd fallen off every building in Hong Kong and had burst into flame more often than Lamb the pyrokinetic. His facility with different aspects of his craft--falls, martial arts, stunt driving, pyrotechnics, gunplay, makeup, and more--made him one of Hong Kong's most in-demand stuntmen. His skill at languages also bought him dubbing jobs and acting roles. Although he braced at his government's often repressive laws, he enjoyed a freedom that many others in China envied.

Peter's parents died during a typhoid outbreak in 1999, leaving him with sole responsibility of his much younger brother Deng. Deng is a good-natured kid, but he's mischievous and has a knack for finding trouble. When preparing to film one of his most elaborate stunts (for the film Guns of the Plum King), Peter was forced to bring Deng to the set. He carefully instructed his younger brother on the importance of keeping still and staying away from trouble. He also set one of the studio gofers to the task of watching Deng. All this was to no avail. Just as his gag (falling, in flames, from a tall building, yet managing to twist and bounce off a plum tree in order to land on a fireworks display, setting them off and pointing them toward the movie's villain with his dying breath) was beginning, he saw Deng wandering into the pyrotechnics display. Already on fire, already falling, Peter had to change the pattern of his fall from the safe, planned route that would launch the pyrotechnics and burn or kill his brother to a dangerous, unguarded fall that would likely kill him. As usual, he did it with panache, thinking to himself, "I hope they can still use this footage." Still, adrenaline coursed through his veins as never before. As he fell, the world seemed to slow around him. Every movement became ultra precise. Every twist of his muscles was calculated with three priorities in mind: Protect Deng. Try to stay alive. Make it look good for the cameras.

Peter fell 150 feet, in flames, and landed not on the air cushion laid out for him, but instead on the hard, unforgiving ground.

He lived.

After the incident, Peter learned that he had the ubergene and that—in his moment of crisis--it had enhanced his body, maximizing all of the abilities he'd trained for years. His strength, his resilience, his dexterity, and even his screen presence were all enhanced. Gags that once would have been hugely difficult for him to plan and carry out became effortless. Unfortunately for Peter, he lived in China, where everyone with the ubergene worked for the government--or else. All the freedoms that he had enjoyed from his movie background were stripped away from Peter as he was immediately snatched up by government to become one of its uberhuman agents, an inducted member of the Red Star Battalion. Deng was snatched up, too, because he tested positive for the ubergene, even though his abilities hadn't yet kicked in. In fact, the government seemed even more interested in Deng, who it saw as having great potential.

After several months in a Red Star Battalion “boot camp,” Peter just couldn’t take any more. He established his most elaborate gag yet: an escape. Using pyrotechnics as a distraction, disguises for misdirection, and a hotwired crop duster for transportation, Peter and Deng managed to make it out of China and all the way to Japan, where they took refuge with some filmmaking contacts. Realizing that if China wanted him and his brother back, he would need some heavy-duty backup, Peter befriended the Japanese superhero team Senshudan One. If anyone could keep him and his brother safe, they would.

Under the codename Stuntman, Peter has fought crime on a few occasions, notably helping to protect a Tokyo-based theme park against an attack by the New Empire. Dr. Mike Bowman, the former Doctor Tomorrow, credits him with saving his life. He fought alongside Senshudan One on a few occasions, even briefly dating Princess Snowflake Pink, but ultimately, he told himself that his goal was to become a movie star--the superhero activity was just a means to an end. He wanted to be another Bruce Lee or Chow Yun Fat, not another Captain California or Hunter Ronin Blue.

The deaths of the Senshudan One team struck Peter hard, not just in terms of the protection that they offered him, but also in terms of lost friendships and regrets. If he’d taken the idea of being a superhero more seriously, he wondered, might his friends in Senshudan One not still be alive?

Personality

Peter likes the flash and dazzle of a well-executed maneuver, particularly if it’s one that he’s executed or planned himself. He’s not as vain or conceited as some people occasionally think he is—he’s just very enamored of the idea of looking good for his audience, whoever that audience might be. Down deep, Peter’s a brave, self-sacrificing man who is learning to place his ideals over his prestige.

Quote

“Sure. There are lots of others who could take that fall and walk away from it. But could they do it with style?”

Powers

Before his accident, Peter was a very well-trained normal who took the tools of his moviemaking craft seriously. He studied hard, and had an aptitude for picking up new skills. The activation of his powers increased his body’s strength, agility, resilience, healing ability, and even screen presence. He’s become the “ultimate stuntman” and performer. He can take considerable damage if need be, but his agility often helps him to keep from being damaged at all (the Combat Luck). Already a formidable martial artist who had trained with a pupil of Bruce Lee (who invented Jeet Kune Do), Peter found that his martial arts abilities were strongly enhanced by his newfound strength and agility. When pressed, he is a canny and dangerous combatant.

Appearance

Given his choice, Peter would probably wear sharp white shirts with collars, expensive shades, pressed blue jeans or khakis, and shiny, comfortable shoes—the look of a movie star on vacation. If he joins Senshudan One officially, he might develop a flashier costume, probably based on the color black.
