Background

Alex Young was an animal handler at the Greater Hong Kong circus. He was good at keeping control of the beasts, especially the large ones. He was an uber. And his special powers allowed him to easily control horses, oxes, elephants, and bears.

At eighteen years of age he was recruited into the Immortals to replace Ox who had perished in a confrontation with the Soviet Union's superteam. It was in this team that Alex, now Ox, learned about power and gained a liking for it. Finally, he bullied his way to the top and was ready to challenge the team leader for a position of dominance in the team hierarchy.

That was when the Party decided to change the look of Communist China to the rest of the world. That was when he received word that the Immortals would be disbanded and re-formed from scratch. He also learned of Rooster's push to set up another superteam - an elite one that would have power nearly equal to the Party's top committees. He stormed into the meeting and they acceded to his demands.

Personality

Physically the toughest of the Gang of Five, Dominance does not like all the 'sneaking about' that some of the others do. Whether a physical or mental issue, he likes to jump right in thinking that the quickest solution is the best. He is a braggart and a bully to most others outside of his team, especially to those he knows or perceives as capitalists. Yet, secretly, he himself desires to be one of the latter and might work with a bourgeouis if the price is right.

Quote

"Get ready to hit the floor, weakling."

Powers

Dominance is a brick of lower strength than most bricks. However, when he begins landing blows on his opponent, slowly he becomes the stronger one.

Appearance

Big and thickly hewn with muscle, Dominance looks like he could control an elephant with his bare hands even if he weren't an uber. As a costume he wears white tights with red trimmings. This is accessorized with a gold-colored belt and form-fitting black boots.
