Mister Eight

Senor Ocho is a living legend in Mexico. An unstoppable wrestler and an amazing gunman, the hero known as Senor Ocho, or Mister Eight, has defended the poor and downtrodden of Mexico and South America for over forty years.

After so many years many of Ocho's adventures have become the stuff of myth. Most of the stories cannot be verified, but it is known that Ocho spent much of the 1980's in a blood feud with the infamous Peruvian drug dealer known as The Blood Doctor. It is also known that around 1999 Ocho began training the man who would become the Black Flag. The two men travelled together across Mexico, fighting in bar brawls and taking down a number of prominent Mexican criminals and American fugitives. Although they were wanted by the law at one point, the FBI dropped all charges when they brought back the daughter of prominent Republican Governor Chuck Norris who had been kidnapped in 2001. Ocho is known to be quick tempered and it is believed that a dispute over a woman brought the friendship between The Black Flag and Senor Ocho to an end.
Many have speculated about his name, whether he is one of eight Luchador heroes, or even that might have eight lives. What is known is that anywhere there is a fight, whether in a bar, a ring or pay per view event, if the spirit of wrestling is there, Ocho is there somewhere.
Ocho has been mystically augmented, his strength, toughness and endurance are far beyond the average human. He is a world class wrestler and MMA fighter, able to use or counter most holds and grapples.
Ocho also wears a retractable pistol on his wrists that can slide down into his palm, but his weapons of choice are his pair of brass knuckles that read "Lucha"and "Libre" or "Free" "Fight".

The Arrow

Randall O'Reilly was born into the Irish Republican Army, the son of men who had fought every battle Ireland had ever been involved in. He started as a child thief, stealing small but important documents or articles that could be used to blackmail or intimidate the opposition. Randall was fast, intelligent, but he was also cold and remote. He had no friends, no one to spend time with. When he wasn't commiting crimes in the name of the cause, he simply sat peacefully, carving things from wood.

Although the IRA officially declared a ceasefire in 1997, many clandestine operations were still underway. Randall had volunteered for a special program co-founded by a number of Irish and American companies that would increase his speed and reflexes.

For the next five years, Randall was no longer a minor thief, he became a super-killer killing targets for the IRA with little or no remorse. Then he met a Scottish girl named Elisa Caitrina. After that his coldness began to melt, his life started moving slower and he began to feel happy for the first time. Of course, as always happens when a man digs himself a grave of crime and evil, someone inevitably must die. The IRA was losing on all fronts and they were not happy about losing their multi-million dollar super-investment. To send Randall a message, four men armed with nail filled baseball bats beat Elisa to death in a dark alley outside the bar where they were supposed to meet. Randall showed up too late to save her, too late to do anything at all. And so he ran. He hopped on a plane right after Elisa's funeral and headed to Canada. Months later the head of the CSIS invited Randall to join the team code named The Legion. Randall hopes to forget his past, but eventually the superspeedster is going to have to stop and his enemies will be waiting.


Randall is able to move far faster than an average human. This gives him an amazing reaction time and an ability to do things much quicker than anyone else. He is not however a "speedster", he cannot run over water or up the side of buildings. He also carries a wooden bow that he carved himself and a set of both blunt and sharp arrows. He is able to shoot an arrow at a target and catch it before it hits, but the exact limits of how fast he can move is still unknown.
