Doing Good: Thomas has discovered a profound sense of satisfaction in using his powers to help others...
Thrills:...turns out, its a lot of fun, too!
Rivalry/Enemy : Dr. Otaku - Thomas has decided to faithfully oppose Dr. Otaku. There's no (real) animosity at work here.
He recognizes that Solo Takashi is really just a frustrated 12 year old nerd who can't get a real girl to even look at him, so he's built
three of them that will fawn over him. At the same time, if Otaku keeps down this path, he's going to cross the line and do
something he can't take back. Like Daedelus, Thomas desperately doesn't want that happen. But time is running out....
Power Loss: Otakumon uses artwork as a focus for his Anime Jutsu array. He must either draw an image on the spot or use
a previously rendered image. He can also use sculpted works.
Relationship: Eva (Vindicator) McKenna. During the adventure that took both the Freedom League and FORCE Ops to a parallel world, Thomas met Eva McKenna, the heroine known as Vindicator. While he couldn't match her scientific expertise, he was on more equal footing with their shared love of comics and anime. He was blown away at how easily he could just talk to her, and they quickly became inseparable. Now that they are back home & FORCE Ops has moved to Emerald City, Thomas and Eva are adjusting to their newly long distance realtionship.
Thomas Kirby grew up in Freedom City as the “bad old days” of the Moore Administration were ending. He was thrilled with the return of “real” heroes to Freedom, culminating in the founding of the Freedom League. Fascinated with super-heroics from an early age, Thomas gravitated toward comic books, especially anime and manga, and eventually a career in art. Thomas discovered his powers by accident, shortly before his graduation from Freedom School for the Arts. Pulling an all-niter on an important final project, Thomas found himself working in a kind of fugue state. He became driven, determined to perfect the image he was working on, a painting of a young woman. After several hours, without realizing it, he reached out to touch the painting. Instead, he reached into it and touched the woman's hand. Startled out of his trance, he pulled back his hand and accidentally pulled her out of the painting! Stumbling and falling backwards, his concentration broke completely and the woman began to fade back into the painting. Just before she disappeared completely, she whispered “Thank you...”. Thinking (hoping) at first that the girl was some sort fatigue induced hallucination, Thomas couldn't stop thinking about what had happened. Several days later, Thomas attempted to replicate what had happened on a smaller scale. (He was, and is, hesitant to try to “draw” the girl back out.) At first he was able only able to draw out small objects, marbles, flowers, and the like. With time, he was able to pull larger and more complex items.
Contrary to expectations, Thomas did not immediately become a superhero. At first, he didn't believe he could be a viable hero with these powers. Creating things out of (almost) thin air was great for him, but he wasn't sure how he could use them to fight evil. He would do good turns as circumstances demanded, but he didn't really consider a formal heroic career. As the years passed, he became a modestly successful comic book artist, freelancing for Castle Comics and other companies. (Being able to “make” your own clothes, furniture, and other sundries lets one save a fair amount of money as well.) Thomas might never become a hero but for two incidences. First, a fire in his apartment building forced Thomas to use his powers to help evacuate the building and contain the fire. He was able to avoid revealing his secret to most of his fellow tenants. However, Raven, who had arrived to help with the fire, determined who had done most of the work. Saving the building showed Thomas that his powers could be very effective. Second, comic book and anime fans began to get a bad rap because of the actions of Doc Otaku. Thomas became annoyed that a snot nosed 12 year old nerd was thrashing the reputation of an entire art form and its fans. On hand at the offices of Castle Comics when Otaku decides to give publisher Harry Wiseman a “You Suck” speech punctuated by his mech suit, Thomas decides he, and everyone else, has had enough. Using his powers to create a quick and dirty disguise, Thomas was able to keep Otaku and his Ark Angels busy enough for Daedelus to arrive and force their retreat. Realizing that he could be an effective hero, Thomas refined his hastily made costume and made the fateful decision to stand as Doc Otaku's opposite number. And thus was born Otakumon, the Anime Avenger.
Thomas' powers involve the manipulation of a (possibly extra-dimensional) material most commonly referred to as ectoplasm. By focusing on a piece of artwork that he has created, or creates on the spot, Thomas can draw forth and shape a mass of ectoplasm to copy the artwork exactly. As Otakumon, the objects he creates have a brightly colored, cel-shaded look, however, he can also create photorealistic objects that are functionally "real". He has practiced his Strikersuit and Skybolt effects sufficently that he no longer requires a image to manifest them.
Otakumon's constructs are NOT capable of independent action. A giant robot created to hold up a damaged building cannot then use its "weapons" to attack an enemy. Unattended constructs simply stop in place.
The Skybolt Akira's default appearance is a anime styled flying motorcycle. However, it can change shape into a more compact hover board shape, so it can be better used indoors, if needed.
