Background

Alhaji Obey found a way out of poverty through music and rose quickly up the echelons of the new Afrobeat music scene, going on to appear in world music festivals in Nigeria and even as far as South Africa. His parents had died when he was fifteen and he had the job of raising his two younger brothers, so when he began to gather some popularity as a musician he thought he had found a way to succeed. The constant threat of orphanages was now gone.

But Alhaji's dream run came at a cost. At a festival in Ghana he was arrested for possession of narcotics which had been planted on him by an agent of the Sunset Cartel which was using the festival to launder money as well as distribute drugs. He was thrown into prison and would have to wait months, if not years, for a trial. While he languished behind bars his brothers would be taken from him. In his desperation Alhaji lost control. He slammed himself against the walls of his prison, screaming at the injustice of his life.

As he slammed he began to make dents in the walls and bars, until finally they snapped and he found himself surprised, but free.

While he hesitated at the prison, wondering what fate had in store for him if he fled the authorities, he also knew that he had to make sure his brothers were safe. He ran. The police pursued him and Alhaji found himself quickly disoriented in the city and was forced into a stand-off with the heavily armed police.

Africa Force One arrived and brokered a truce. Alhaji agreed to return to prison while Africa Force investigated the possibility of a frame-up. Luckily for Alhaji the team did uncover the Sunset Cartel's involvement and soon he was released, although he would never return to Ghana. When he arrived home he found himself without much chance of a new festival appearance. His embarrassing moment in Ghana had been televised across most of Africa and no one was returning his phone calls.

All seemed lost until he received a visit from a chimpanzee called Pan. News of Alhaji's powers had made the rounds as well and Pan encouraged him to join their new superhero team, Next Gen. There would be a regular and bountiful pay check and all he had to do was live the life of a super hero.

Taking the code name Crash, Alhaji has fully embraced the idea of becoming a corporate super hero. He loves the money and the fact he gets to be a super hero and smash things. Even when he smashes the wrong things, Pan or Pandora always clean up the bureaucratic mess. He is having a dream run.

 

Personality

Crash is an airhead who rarely thinks about the consequences of actions, and is probably a result of him running through one too many brick walls. He is a very pleasant and charming kid with a ready smile and an adventurous spirit, but he doesn't have much else going for him, unless you consider his music career.

He has joined Next Gen because it has finally put an end to his concerns about how to support his brothers. Everything seems to be perfect now, and Alhaji has enough money and free time to pursue the life he always wanted. And while he is a great hero, he tends to look at the financial and popularity aspects of his career rather than any altruistic notions of looking after people or the world at large. With that in mind he makes a perfect addition to the corporate Next Gen team.

Powers

Alhaji Obey has always had a very hard head, but since his ubergene activated he has developed the ability to simply run through anything. He has smashed his way through buildings, through the sides of mountains and even through a battalion of Iron Heart armours (although admittedly he was later pinned and squeezed by those Iron Hearts and had to be rescued by his team mates). As well as uberhuman strength (able to lift in excess of 50 tons) and durability, Crash also possessing enhanced ground speeds which he uses to simply run through obstacles.

 

Appearance

Alhaji is an attractive man on the cusp of his twenties. He is a fervent dancer and has a very athletic and lithe body. As Crash he wears the team costume which is made from an armoured material with a dark green band across the top covering his shoulders and upper chest, with a white band covering the rest of his torso, and dark green trunks and pants.
