Scott Moore has had a troubled life. Everything was fine until his older brother ran off when Scott was 12. No one had any idea why Jacob ran away. Everything seemed fine, but afterwards Scott’s parents just seemed to be totally consumed in their grief, worry, and anger to even remember that they had another son that needed his parents. Due to this lack guidance, Scott became very self-sufficient.

In high school, Scott became aware that he had certain innate abilities. He was rather agile, strong, and quick. He also instinctively knew what to do with any weapon he came in touch with. He was scared that he was going to be labeled as a mutant, but his mandatory genetic scans (required to attend public schools under the Safe Homeland Act) came back with enhanced physical attributes, but still within normal human ranges.

Scott had the reputation as being a loner in school, but also for being a “white knight.” He hated to see anyone taken advantage of or bullied, so he would jump to their aid. After the first fight in which Scott put a kid in the hospital with three broken ribs (which nearly lead to his expulsion), very few people did much around him.

Upon graduating high school, Scott unceremoniously left his parents to live in Kansas City, Missouri. He found work as a mechanic in a small auto-shop downtown. The neighborhood wasn't great by any means. It angered Scott to read about all the robberies, murders, muggings, and various other acts committed against the decent people that are living in abject fear everyday. However, he was only a single man, what could he do?

Scott lived in a run-down apartment building; it was the kind of place that people kept to themselves for fear of being mistaken for sticking their nose in where it didn't belong. Scott did the same until he heard a woman cry out in the alley below one night. Looking out his window, he saw a woman being pursued by three punks. From the foul taunts, anyone would know what was going to happen to the woman should she get cornered. Scott was not going to let that happen. He thought about calling the cops, but knew they wouldn't get here in time, so he acted.

A voice in the back of his mind told him that what he was doing was stupid and that he was going to get himself killed, but he couldn't let that woman be harmed. Someone had to stand up for those that can’t for themselves. The fight was a blur. It seemed like it was over in an instant, and when dust settled two of the punks were dead and the other had to be taken to the hospital with a broken leg, arm, and four cracked vertebrae. The woman, was grateful, but frightened of her rescuer. Scott didn't stick around for the cops. The woman told the police that it was like a monster swooped in and slaughtered the bastards. While she was grateful for being saved, she didn't think that her attackers deserved to die.

Scott couldn't disagree more. He had come to a turning point in his life. The dealing with the scum in the alleyway felt good. The initial twinge of guilt he felt upon killing two men was quickly banished when he realized that if they were taken to jail, they would merely be out within a week to prey upon the weak again. No, they had to die.

Thus, the Revenger was born.

Since then, Scott had waged war against crime and corruption. His battle has taken him from the back alleys to the highest towers of Cyberworks. He has been arrested, tried, and sentenced to death, only to escape and go on the run. He’s been hunted by many of America’s best super-heroes, and somehow is able to escape.

The years haven’t been kind to The Revenger though, he bears the scars of battle and his hair is graying much too early for a man of his age. He drinks too much, but knows of no other way to drown the pain of knowing that all that he knows is death, and no matter how many evil people he sends to the grave it’s never getting any better. He keeps fighting though, because it’s all he knows to do.

The Revenger typically wears a tan leather duster, t-shirt, blue jeans, and steel-toed boots. Numerous harnesses all over his body hold the various weapons that can be found on him at nearly any time. His black hair is graying at the temples and his features are worn and haggard. He looks a lot older than what he really is. His eyes are a clear blue and have an edge to them that makes others think of a wild dog.
