Tom made his news in the world of boxing by being
the only boxer alive to do what Mike Tyson did to all his opponents to Mike Tyson himself.
The fame and popularity was astonishing. Tom even made headway in the world of
professional wrestling from time to time until it was discovered that his ability to fight
was due to mutant powers. Considering the overwhelming popularity of Tom's stardom, it was
written out for Tom to accept early retirement to make him leave all the circuits
possible, without any suspicion or uproar or even riot of why. Of course new talent comes
along and Tom's popularity becomes more like yesterdays news. But with a wealth of memory
as such, people still take a liking to his ability. Of course mutants beg to differ.
Besides his talent in fighting, he takes to mechanics very well. Very handy with power
tools and can work automobiles to factory boiler rooms with no problem, and could even
make a clock like Big Ben work wonders without ever breaking down if need to be. His hero
uniform is mostly your all American shirt with white and red trim boxer shorts. Tom
developed enough ability to formulate his boxing gloves for his hands at will. He wears no
mask. He does wear a bandana when in super hero uniform.
Thomas stands 6'5" a solid 285 lbs. a light
skin black male whom is always up to a challenge. Has an ingeneral nice persona about him
until challenged to a fight. Usually allows the opponent to make the first move, then goes
to capatialize on the mistake. Unfortunately, Tom is completely open and vulnerable to
mental and psychic attacks of any kind. T.K.O. is best known as a raw force hitter who
knows not when to quit. He will align himself for anything for a better cause, but usually
remains neutral in many situations. Almost uncaring in some events and only self focused
on what is around him on the immediate. But that is just the way he is. It made him loved
and hated character pretty well when he dealt with the world of boxing and wrestling. old
habits die hard.
