great episode of Buck Rogers had a guy like that, basically a librarian from his world, only his world was a heavy gravity world so on earth the guy was inhumanly strong, strong enough to turn a blaster into a pretzel and toss Buck the hero around like a ragdoll.
Dr. Silverback has wryly observed that this is like trying to teach lolcats about Shakespeare

After his success co-authoring a murder mystery w/James Patterson, Marvel is now talking to Bill Clinton about doing some comics writing: a revival of Steve Gerber's swamp monster hero. They expect Bill Clinton's 'Man-Thing' will be very popular.

Power Points
Abilities 70 + Powers 53 + Advantages 24 + Skills 15 (30 ranks) + Defenses 20 = 182

Background Kevin Blair is a hunky male model with amazing hair. He is also secretly a super-hero with even more fantastic hair. On top of possessing super human strength, he also has the ability to control his hair, altering its length, and manipulating it about as if it were multiple limbs.

Real World Stuff When Andy began setting up Crusader Force, he specifically asked Neil to create a male character. You see, decades earlier, when Neil was nominally running the original Crusaders, Neil recognised that the group was kind of a sausage party, so when he created NPC Crusaders, about 80% of them were women.

Neil also likes to take tropes and turn them around. So, he began envisioning a hero, rather than a heroine, who could manipulate his hair a la Medusa. He also decided to make him a, vain, beautiful person who works as a model in his secret identity, and as a super hero is scantily clad. He also decided to make the hero, and not just his hair super strong.

When Neil was struggling for a name, I suggested "Samson", because, really, is their any other figure in western culture that is so about strength AND hair. I also designed a costume for him. Neil decided I went too far on the scantily clad bit.

And, of course this is for Crusader Force, and as I've said elsewhere, Crusader Force feels a little out of sync with the rest of the RCU. Kind of like a Murray Boltinoff/Bob Haney DC Comics story.

Hard to pick a favorite costume for Samson. Overall I like the below picture but the cape doesn't work well. On the other hand, the long hair acting as a cape really works well in the top picture.

I have fond memories of the bibical Samson story. For the longest time, I thought that Samson was super hardcore. Rather than reaching down to the bleached bones of an ass on the side of the road, I always pictured him of reaching up to a live ass, tearing its jaw off and then beating people to a bloody pulp with the bloody pulp.

That's a neat take on the Samson archetype. Usually the Samson is just a powerhouse but I really like the Medusa style take.

So...

I created Chaimzilla, the Kai-Jew, for Earth-D. The same perpindicular world where Neutron Man lives. Now, Doug, the founder of Earth-D is, in fact, Jewish, and he gave me his blessing on the character before I built him. After all, he's really just about the pun in the word kaiju. Oh, and Jim insisted I follow the "Earth-D is PL 7" rule. Which meant building a creature with 20 levels of Growth and making him only PL 7. A fun little exercise.
