Background

It was during the Long March that Comrade Sergeant Fong Chung suddenly became an uber. During a firefight with a Nationalist company, his squad was severely outnumbered. Yet, their task, to cover the retreat of the bulk of the Red Army was of utmost importance. Wishing he had more men, he found that the population of the entire village below his foxholes suddenly left the shelter of their homes and asked for orders. When the Nationalists advanced, he ordered the peasants to attack the enemy from behind. Armed with hoes and shovels, the farmers, men, women, and children of all ages, shouted and rushed. The survivals could be counted on two hands and of those, only two were not wounded. But the Chiang Kai Shek's men pulled back and Comrade Sergeant Fong's meager force held long enough for the Red Army to reach the next city where they could replenish their supplies..

After the Red Army eventually drove the Nationalists off the mainland, the Party gathered together 12 superhumans and established the Immortals. Fong Chung split his time between the Red Army and the Immortals as Rooster. Because of his knowledge of command and his natural abilities, he quickly rose during this time from Captain to General. By the time that the Immortals were disbanded, he was one of the six most powerful military personas in Communist China.

He saw the opportunity to form another team, known popularly as the Gang of Five. And, with his power and the backing of the Red Army, General Fong, as Red Star General, placed himself as leader of the team.

Personality

A taskmaster military general, he knows how to use soldiers. And with a potentially unlimited supply, he will not hesitate to command them to any task. Some compare him to Grand Moff Tarkin of the Star Wars movie.

Quote

"You had better think twice. You are surrounded now by trained combat troops who are willing to die for me."

Powers

Red Star General is a mentalist that has developed his powers in a manner familiar to his military career. Within a minute, he can mobilize a town into an instant army brigade - minimally trained, but with high morale.

Appearance

Red Star General wears a black 'Mao' collared jacket and black combat fatigue pants along with hard leather boots and a pair of white silk gloves. A stern man, he is rarely seen with a smile on his face unless he has done something that advances his postion in the Party.
