Super Powers:
Antman believes he received his powers after falling asleep at a picnic, awakening to discover being bitten by hundreds of ants. He immediately came to the incorrect conclusion that at least one of them has imbued him with superpowers. Antman's superpowers are a spray bottle full of Mylanta, which he squirts at evil doers, and an ability to bite villains really hard where and when least expected.

Secret Identity:
Antman legally changed his name to Anthony Manfred, in what appears to be a desperate attempt to get people to guess his secret identity, so far no one seems that interested. His business card says that he is a freelance journalist, but no one wants to buy photos of Antman. Ironically also an uncle.

Antman wears a cheaply cobbled together ant costume, with extra arms and a particularly useless abdomen.

Best Known For:
 His epic slap fights (an attempt to utilise his extra arms) with the equally mediocre arch nemesis the Aardvark.

Notable Quotes:
 "You know, I don't think this bank robbing thing is all its cra.... AAAAAAHHHHHH! Something just bit me on the leg!"

Anonymous Man

Superpower(s): Anonymous Man can blend into any surrounding, including when he is by himself. He has to wait for automatic doors to be opened by someone else when he tries to enter shops. Anonymous Man longs for the day when plastic streamers will return to shop doors.

Secret Identity: John Citizen - the face of example ID.

Appearance: the most generic face you will ever forget. He is so generic it acts as camouflage. Anonymous Man can disappear in a crowd wearing a gorilla suit in a high visibility vest. This makes his job pushing trolleys very dangerous and also makes it hard to meet women.

Best Known for: not really known for anything, but there is a large file here of unsolved happenings...

Notable Quotes: "who was that guy?"

The Chamois

Super Power: Super absorbent, but can not release the water on command. The water has to leak out over several hours so that when he gets up for work and has a shower, the Chamois has to wait until he is sufficiently empty to begin his day. This can take hours.

Secret Identity: he lives as Davo, an electrician with a nervous twitch. He was most of the way through his trade when as an apprentice, he spilled his coffee onto equipment. Panicking, he grabbed the nearest rag, a chamWow chamois, and tried to mop up the mistake and a high amount of current surged through his body, changing him at the molecular level for ever. Always remember to isolate.

Appearance: Sweaty and clammy. The Chamois looks like a man who has just done a moderate amount of exercise with a sheen that is normally reserved for shoes. Not the warlock kind. He has to wear as little clothes as possible to increase the surface area of exposed skin to air to help him dry out and shed water. He favours elastic bands and lose fitting clothes to allow for the volume increase when he takes on water. He wears towels upon his head as a necessity to mop up drips.

Notable Quotes: "Oh no, raining again"

Best Known For: He starred in an unsuccessful TV advertising campaign for an antiperspirant. Unfortunately it was proven that nothing could keep him dry for any length of time. The company was sued and his reputation ruined.
