My superhero. I play a game on Facebook that is an online CCG, or Collectible Card Game. In this game there is a small storyline that they are slowly developing. As an author who loves to write every day I decided to use some of my free writing time between projects to come up with a hero all my own for the story of this game. One hundred and fifty pages of story later, I have a hero that some of my game friends have come to like, Bark. And here is the synopsis of the first installment:
Joshua Henderson was a nice Oklahoma boy, born and raised in Tulsa. Josh moved to Las Vegas to work for a private security company. He was hired to protect a laboratory while the scientist worked on highly sensitive projects. Little did he know that he was to be the subject of experimentation. A evil scientist, Dr. Osten, tried to mutate Josh into a human dog hybrid that would be the perfect, loyal soldier. The process was interrupted and the scientist killed by one of his other experiments that had broken free. Josh, half transformed into a dog, escaped with his life and not much else. His memory nearly erased, he wondered the deserts searching for help. He could not speak, but only making a barking noise. People feared him and the ULH, United League of Heroes, was called to find him and trap him. He was found by a woman named Frost. She took pity on him and brought him back to the station. There they discovered that he was no threat, but a possible asset to world security. With the nick name Bark, as that is the sound he makes, he is learning to use his new found abilities while the doctors of the ULH attempt to help return some of his memory and give him back a voice.
Barks superpowers include: hyper sensitive hearing and smell, above average strength and agility. And most important, an unshakable loyalty to defend others.
Barks drawbacks: head to toe fur, a tail that doesn’t fit every chair or costume, and the inability to construct words with his mouth. He is also a little naïve having not been part of the super-hero world before.
