Name: Duke Sage Affiliation: Villains for Hire Power Level: 12 Height: 6'4" Weight: 300 lbs.
Origin: Born in the mean streets of LA, Duke grew up, as many other young black men do, in the shadow of the many gangs in the streets. Duke eventually joined a gang called the Black Ravens. During a retribution attack on another gang, Duke was shot and left for dead, but was rescued by the police. He was still charged with many murders and put away into the system. During his incarceration, he was given an option to take part in an experiment to reduce his time. He accepted and was given some chemicals and radiation treatments, which lead him to gain the powers and abilities that he now has. He also discovered that the government had no intention of letting him go, even more so now that he had gained the abilities that he had. Duke did the only thing he could and broke out. He moved to the West Coast and started a new criminal career in New York as muscle. He eventually met Donny Rend in the process of creating a company that supplied muscle and the two of them went into business together.
