Description: Not too long ago, Robert Goodman looked every last one of his 52 years. Wrinkled, paunchy, his graying hair going thin at the crown, Bob was as well-worn by life as his beloved khaki suits. Following his transformation, however, Bob’s flesh became a reflective, semitransparent jelly that he can shape, color, and texture however he pleases. He still wears the khaki suits.



Years ago, Special Agents Robert Goodman and Arthur Clark of the Vibora Bay Police Department were investigating billionaire chemical magnate Francis DuKatt III for his company’s connections to the recent appearance of a new, dangerously potent designer narcotic called “Cicada.” Midway through their inquiries, Special Agent Clark disappeared one evening, never to be seen again.


The loss of his best friend and brother-in-law destroyed Goodman’s marriage, drove him to the bottle, and cost him his career when the case was dropped and he was ordered to cease any and all investigations. Suspecting foulest play, Goodman retired from the force in disgust and established a small, one-man private detective business. It paid peanuts, but at least the work was honest.


One day, while tailing a wayward husband, Bob learned that the man's midnight rendezvous weren't with a younger mistress, as his wife had feared, but to plot and enact a clandestine meeting at the DuKatt Chemical factory with a cadre of black-clad conspirators. Spotted by a lookout before he could report what he’d seen, Bob was captured, disarmed, and forced to enter the factory.


There, the detective was savagely beaten, shot twice in the stomach, and dumped in a waste chemical tank to die. That he didn't expire surprised no one so much as Bob himself, though he would live forever changed. Transformed by the toxic chemicals into a large puddle of reflective sludge, Goodman oozed free of the vat and was able to escape soon after his murderers fled the scene.


Fighting shock, he was able to take a more humanoid form and return home under cover of darkness. After some experimentation, Bob realized that his reflective, jellylike flesh could assume all manner of shapes, colors, and textures – and turn from a liquid to a durable solid with a thought. Inspired by Vibora Bay's heroic history, he resolved to use his strange new powers to defend the city, avenge his own murder, and learn the truth behind his late partner’s mysterious disappearance.


Personality & Motivation:

Tough and determined to the point of obduracy, Robert Goodman epitomizes the term “hard case.” But beneath that stony, suspicious exterior lies a heart of gold and an undying dedication to unearthing the truth. A nightmare to crooks and an angel to the innocent, Goodman works tirelessly as the Mirror to bring justice – both punishment and protectionto the citizens of Vibora Bay.


Powers & Tactics:

A shapeshifter with extensive control over the psychoplasmic sludge that makes up his body, the Mirror is capable of assuming nearly any form he can imagine with exacting precision. He able to relax his body into a slippery liquid and tense it into a durable, super-strong solid. When wounded, the Mirror is able to concentrate and literally pull himself back together to heal himself.


The Mirror uses his abilities to disguise himself when undercover, infiltrate secured locations, and battle criminals directly when necessary. In combat, he tends to open with his fluid form to engage enemies from a range before turning solid to reduce incoming damage and finish the job in close quarters. Injuries sustained in battle are healed after, when he has a moment to regenerate.


Power Descriptions:

A human being mutated by a vat of toxic chemical waste, the Mirror’s powers are all physical in nature and application. He is capable of reshaping his body to alter his appearance and assuming an elongating fluid form or a stronger, more durable solid form. In combat, the Mirror can cause bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage by transforming his limbs into clubs, spikes, or blades.
