Background

"What is the urgent need that you have for this old and tired man?" Kaemon said as he gently pushed aside the noren. The door curtain was a simple design of white snowflakes on a gray-tan background with the Hiuma mon in the center. "You could have merely told me on the Shichinin communicator."

Rinji chuckled at his older brother, "I apologize from pulling you away while you took your nightly moonlight patrol. Ha! Tired old man? Anyone but a teenager would be envious of your energy. This is something very important, however.

"I have made a discovery that will change the world," Rinji declared.

"Ah. Yet another one," Kaemon said feigning a yawn and then a smile as he teased, doing the duty of a brother. "Perhaps you will be in contention for the Nobel Prize this year. I am certain that you will give the Numens a run for their money."

"You are very modern for someone who runs around in waraji and talks to dead people," Rinji returned the jibe. He held open his hands. His right hand had old bits of plastic casing that could have come from any number of consumer goods. In his left was what looked like a small pile of gray dust. "Today, after a year of research, I have successfully converted plastic trash into a highly combustible plastic powder. It is a simple two step chemical process that can be applied to nearly any plastic - acrylic, silicone, polyurethane, PVC, polystyrene, styrofoam. Indeed, you sometimes need to mix the plastics to make it work. But, the micro pellets can combust and, with a slight application of current, it can be used to create energy -"

His older brother slapped him in the head, softly, but with enough force to stop Rinji's lecture. "Younger brother, do not be so foolish as to publish this. In the hands of people with less-than-good intent, think what might happen. Combustion means controlled explosion. Use this for good purposes, yes. Use this to help people, yes. But be careful about telling this to anyone for one will tell another will tell another and eventually, it would get into the wrong hands."

Rinji considered his brother's words as he looked at the wall. Always the idealist, he didn't think so much about consequences of scientific advancement. He bowed deeply to Kaemon, and when he straightened from the bow, he only saw the noren swinging. There was no doubt in his mind where the man was, he would be out looking for evil to vanquish. Then he remembered the times that Kaemon or Kaemon's wife, Rei, had nearly died fighting against those who sought to victimize others for personal gain. He remembered the time when his nephew and neice were kidnapped by enemies of Moon Warrior and Sunshine.

The inventor placed the plastic trash onto the table. He studied his sketches of the feeder mechanism for the plastic explosive power plant. It would take a month or two to make it on the scale that a man could easily carry such a thing. All he had to do was come up with a cool name.

Personality

Rinji is an idealist. Any problem can be solved if you just take the time to think about it and then implement your solution. He's the one who convinced his brother, Kaemon (the Moon Warrior) not to give up being a superhero even after the disaster in Nagoya in which five innocents died because they were nearby when Number One lofted a five story building at him.

Realizing the amount of waste generated by modern society, Rinji is a strong advocate of both recycling and renewable energy. Not only is this one of the driving forces in his life, he incorporates those concepts into things that he creates including his own equipment, that of Sunshine, Hawk Rider II, Moon Warrior, and MECHA-Tai Japan, and commercial products.

Quote

"Don't you know that it is better to create than destroy? Then, once you realize that, perhaps you'll find that it's even better to renew!"

Powers

Everything that Doctor Boom uses is made from recycled products including the multilayered, self-healing ablative armor. The majority of his gear is fueled by, Plastex, fine particle plastic pellets that have been treated to be easily combustable. His flight pack is a small combustion chamber for Plastex. His Pellet Gun is a miniature chemical mixer that can shoot explosive Plastex or a modified version that he calls Plastbind, which is less explosive, but useful as a glue or wrap.

Appearance

Rinji wears a gray-tan colored armor suit that covers most of his body and uses a large pistol-shaped device that he calls his Pellet Gun. However, most of the time, he is in docker style pants and short sleeved business shirt. He keeps himself clean shaven and well-groomed with a buzzcut hairstyle.
