Very little is known of the hulking man who goes by the monicker of Sledgehammer. What is known is Sledgehammer was once a construction worker called Christopher Smith. Chris had a drug abuse problem as well as an addiction to steriods. One night, Chris took a near lethal combination of meph and steriods. The drugs went to work immediately on his system, altering his musculature and nervous system. The drugs destroyed Chris's mind while at the same time built up his body. The end result was the man known as Chris was dead, now he was the being known as Sledgehammer.
Sledgehammer wears a suit of body armor that gives him EX (20) protection against physical attacks and GD (10) protection against energy attacks.
Sledgehammer carries two sledgehammers strapped to back. Each sledgehammer is capable of inflicting STRENGTH +1 CS damage. There is nothing special about the sledgehammers he carries. They are simple hardware store variety sledgehammers.
