Background

Michelangelo Bracciano once was a professional boxer from Rome who was down on his luck. He was losing fights, even against boxers that he could usually beat. Michelangelo was starting to get worried that his career might be over at the age of twenty. Once after losing a humiliating fight against an up and coming boxer Michelangelo went on a drinking tour of all the bars in Rome.

Dawn found Michelangelo stumbling down a street drunk as a skunk. Michelangelo knew he must be hallucinating when he walked through a wall, or that for a while he was towering over the city in a drunken haze. Eventually Michelangelo found his way home. He remembered the sound of construction workers working outside his house wakening him the next day. For some reason there was a lot new pot holes in the road around his house. With a yawn, Michelangelo went down to the gym to work out, giving no thought to what had happened last night.

Since that drunken night things for Michelangelo had changed dramatically. His worthless manager finally paid off for him getting him a match with another famous boxer. This was going to be a major fight for Michelangelo. And he won, hands down an easy victory. After that Michelangelo kept on winning. It didn't even seem unusual to Michelangelo that all of his opponents were sent to the hospital after their bouts. Michelangelo was quickly going up the ranks and was becoming quite famous.

Eventually Michelangelo was given the opportunity to fight against the Italian heavyweight champion. Michelangelo was really psyched about the bout. He had his game face on and was really concentrating. Things were going really well, when all hell broke loose. Before he knew what was happened Michelangelo started growing and growing until he was a giant. The roof of the arena was destroyed by his growth. People started screaming and the next thing Michelangelo knew he was the size an ant. Michelangelo fearing that he would be stepped on and instantly returned to his normal height but was transparent as a ghost. This scared his opponent, who took a swing at him. Before Michelangelo knew what was happening he was now as a hard as a rock. The champ broke his hand on Michelangelo's face.

In the chaos that ensued after the fight, Michelangelo left town. He fled north to Venice, thinking that he might join the Dawnstars. Michelangelo thought to use his powers to become a hero and make up for his embarressment in the boxing ring. He had heard that the Dawnstars had been decimated by recent mysterious attacks. Michelangelo never actually joined the Dawnstars, but instead fell in to a group calling itself the Protezoni. Michelangelo since becoming a member of the Protezoni, has taken to calling himself Praetorian.

Personality

Michelangelo has always been an aggressive man. This is one of the things that led him into the life of a professional boxer. Now that he's a super-hero nothing has changed. He still goes into a fight without much thought. Michelangelo knows that by being aggressive he ends the fight sooner.

Michelangelo has become a hero to make up for the embarressment of his fight against the Italian boxing champion. However, people still remember the match, and a few even hound him about it. Michelangelo strives to be the best hero by being strong and facing his foes with a sizable fist.

Like most Italian males, Michelangelo has a strong sense of his maleness, or in other terms he thinks he's macho, a real mans' man. He won't fight against another woman, unless she's pounding the stuffing out of him. Praetorian has a habit of irritating women by his behavior. However, he never learns, and usually falls for his macho ways.

"Come on hit me. Harder. Harder."

Powers

Praetorian is a man with the Uber-gene that allows him complete control of his size and density. Through unknown means Praetorian is able to add a lot of mass to his body or take that same mass away. Also Praetorian can increase or decrease his size. Praetorian can take so much mass away that he becomes virtually immaterial. When Praetorian adds on height or mass, he becomes super-humanly strong and when shrunk difficult to hit. Praetorian is unable to combine his powers, thus he's unable to shrink and add on mass at the same time.

In addition to his size/mass powers, Praetorian has the skill of a professional boxer. Coupled with his Uber-gene enhanced powers this makes him a deadly foe. In a fight, Praetorian likes to make a dramatic entrance. He also likes to primarily fight foes one on one using his boxing skills. However, he has been known to pick up objects and throw then at his foes. Praetorian isn't above using his shrinking and desolidification powers to unnerve his foes. To get away from a fight, he'll either shrink to his smallest size or become totally immaterial.

Appearance

When Praetorian uses his growth powers he can grow to the height and weight of a giant, or can shrink down to the size of a gnat; barely noticeable. Or Praetorian can add or subtract from his mass becoming infinitely heavy or practically immaterial. At his normal size, Michelangelo is a muscular Italian. For a costume, Michelangelo wears a pair of green boxing shorts, along with white boots. He also likes to tape up his arms up to his elbows. Praetorian doesn't wear boxing gloves. Due to his dramatic change in the boxing ring, it would be difficult for Michelangelo to maintain a secret identity.
