Charles Xavier(Step-Brother)(Presumed Deceased)PHYSICAL APPEARANCEHEIGHT:
Extremely Muscular could be seen as an understatementEYES:
Red, usually shaven or down to a low buzz cutDISTINGUISHING MARKS:
No marks to speak of, but at nearly seven feet tall, and around 900lbs of solid muscle....he's not hard to spot.CLOTHING STYLE:
Cain's a simple guy, and as such, he has a simple style. Muscle shirts, t-shirts, dress shirts; these are the staple of his wardrobe, and despite being incredibly large, shirts aren't to hard to find if you know where to look. Pants are another story, and most of his have to be custom made. That's not to say he can't go to an outlet store and find his size...but he has to do some serious searching. For footwear, it's mostly boots; he wears sneakers from time to time, but like his pants they have to be custom made.UNIFORM:
Cain's uniform consists of a dark red pair of pants designed to be able to take almost as much damage as him. His upper half is covered by an even darker sleeveless shirt that contours to his body like a glove. His arms are covered in metal bands, one over each bicep, and something that resembles a mix between fingerless gloves and a spiked gauntlet on each hand, and extending to his forearm. The most noticeable aspect of his uniform is his helmet, it's dome shaped and has three openings for his eyes and lower face.POWERSGENERAL DESCRIPTION:
Cain is called the Unstoppable Juggernaut for a good reason, and that reason being is in the name; he's literally unstoppable once he gets moving in a certain directions. He doesn't understand why, but his unstoppability grants him a number of other abilities that make him a true Juggernaut.
Unstoppable: Once he sets his mind to something, and begins moving, practically no physical force can stop him in any significant way. Sufficient force can slow him down, sometimes considerably, but nothing has ever stopped him, and it's doubtful there's anything that can.
Superhuman Strength: Juggernaut has vast superhuman strength, the upper limits of which are unknown, and may very well be limitless. It actually stands to reason that he can summon as much strength as he needs for the situation at hand. Cain's strength is to the point that he's casually tossed tanks, ripped high security vault doors from their hinges, and gone blow for blow with the most powerful beings on the planet.
Superhuman Stamina: One the abilities most closely related to his unstoppability, Cain seems to be able to go on as long as he wants. Once he gets moving, he doesn't stop unless he feels like it; that means he doesn't get tired, or winded. For all intents and purposes, the Juggernauts' stamina is limitless.
Superhuman Durability: To say Juggernaut is durable is an understatement, nigh invulnerable is more appropriate when describing his ability to take a beating. On record, there's not much, if anything that can hurt him or slow him down. Tank shells, bullets, missiles, lasers....these things have no lasting effect on Cain.
Healing Factor: On the off chance that Cain does sustain injury, his body has the ability to heal those injuries at a fairly quick rate. Most of the injuries he receives though are minor at best, so no one really knows how powerful of a healing factor it is.
Enhanced Locomotion: Despite his incredible size, Juggernaut can book once he builds some speed up. Now, he's not Quicksilver or Northstar...or anyone with any real super speed, but he can hit highway speeds given enough time.WEAKNESS:
Cain is all about pure physical force and power...so the irony isn't lost on him that his main, and really his only weakness is mental attacks. To combat this, his helmet is constructed from a mix of different high-grade metals, forming an alloy that shuts out most telepathic assaults. However, should the helmet be removed, Cain is a target for any and all telepaths who want to get in his head and mess up the place. Despite his massive strength, Cain's main power is still, and always will be unstoppable momentum.
The way to circumvent that, is to interrupt his momentum before he can get it going. Break the ground before he can get moving, hold him in the air where he can't move, things of that nature effectively cancel his unstoppability...since he can't move at all. Another weakness that's more of an annoyance than anything else is his size; Cain stands over seven feet tall, and weighs 900lbs give or take. As such, any weakened surfaces have a tendency to strain and usually give way under his mass. For example, walking up a flight of stairs in a condemned building would more than likely end up with him falling through to the basement.PERSONALITY
Cain is a hard man, and that's from having a hard life. As a child, his father abused him, while at the same time treating his step-brother like prince. He didn't know then, and he still doesn't know now that it was for the sole purpose of getting the mass amounts of money his mother had access to. Even if he ever did find out, that wouldn't make things better; he'd understand why his father did it, but he still wouldn't approve. The constant abuse and neglect had two results; one being that Cain is for the most part mean just to be mean. The other being that he has an intense hate for Xavier and anyone associated with him. That's not to say he's a total ass.....okay, he's a total ass, but he's an emotionally complicated ass. He respects strength more than anything, seeing as that's what he's all about; so if you can show him some kind of strength, he'll give you the time of day and not look down on you. If he thinks your a pansy, he might just kill you rather than go through the trouble of hearing you run yer mouth.HISTORY
Cain was born to Dr. Kurt Marko and Marjorie Marko. For the first few yeers of his life, everything was tolerable, but eventually his parents divorced, and with his father being too busy for work, and his mother off doing her own thing, he was sent to Boarding School. By the time he came back, his father had remarried, and was now living with his new wife and her son in a mansion out in Westchester. Turns out dear old dad married his partners wife after he died in a lab accident. Sharon was loaded, and while he never found out, Cain had a pretty good idea that that was why little Charlie got better treatment than him. Besides treating Charles like a king, Cain's father beat him mercilessly, which of course caused him to hate Charles even more. After it was discovered that Kurt only married Sharon for her money, she died from a broken heart.
Now Cain was stuck with his deadbeat dad, his step-brother, and a shitload of cash. During his early teen years, Cain got in an argument with his father over money of all things, and during that argument he accused Kurt of being behind his partners supposed accident. It turns out that it really was an accident, and while Kurt didn't cause it, he didn't save Xavier either. that got a rise out of dad, and another beating ensued. Finally, Cain got fed up and he tossed a few vials against the wall of his dad's lab; that was a bad idea though, since several volatile chemicals mixed and caused an explosion. Before this, Cain's powers had begun manifesting themselves; he could run farther and faster, he was a lot stronger, etc... So when the lab blew up, he wasn't hurt, but his father still took it upon himself to save Cain and Charles.
He died from smoke inhalation, and unsurprisingly, Cain could care less. Now it was just Cain and Charles, in a big ole house and a bank account with more cash in it than either of them could ever spend. Needless to say, Cain's hate hadn't died down any, so he took a portion of the cash and left. Well what happens when a guy full of rage and hatred is out on the streets; usually he turns to crime. Now when that guy is for all intents and purposes unstoppable, he turns to highly successful crime. The years passed, and Cain came to be known as The Unstoppable Juggernaut, and little Charlie came to be known as Professor Charles Xavier. Is it really possible for hate to persist over more than a decade....the answer is yes in Cain's case. He still hated Xavier with every fiber of his being; despite not knowing that his step-brother was dead, Cain still goes out of his way to make things difficult for all of his associates.DURING APOCALYPSE:
Cain took part in the battle with Famine, and after cutting a swath through the Horseman's ranks, his helmet was destroyed. Famine took this opportunity and invaded Cain's mind, converting the Juggernaut into an agent of the mighty Apocalypse. Shortly after, Juggernaut engaged in a fight with Tiny Mighty; and while Tiny might have been Mighty...Cain was unstoppable and would have killed Jason as well as others had Apocalypse not called Famine and the rest of his legion away. After Apocalypse was defeated, the enthralled Cain was released from his servitude. After he was freed, Cain decided to take some time away from everything and just be alone with his thoughts. Recently though he's re-emerged, and his loyalties like with no one but himself for the moment.SAMPLE RP POST:
At around noon, main street was a literal parking lot; that meant that anyone on main street was no in danger, and the reason was about to become evident in a few seconds. Looking behind him, Cain Marko AKA The Unstoppable Juggernaut couldn't believe he of all people was running from someone. What was even more unbelievable was why he was running; all he wanted to do was get some money out of his bank account, and now SHIELD goons were on his tail, trying to apprehend him on some outstanding charges. As a result, the bank now had a human shaped hole in the side wall, and there were several cars were smashed beyond recognition in it's parking lot. Turning back to where he was heading, Cain figured that since he'd picked up a bit of speed, the capes wouldn't catch him for the moment. The fact remained though that they could call for backup, and he needed somewhere to lay low for a while.
The street he was on diverged into another street, which meant Cain had three choices, none of them good for whoever got in his way. He could keep straight ahead and smash through an apartment complex, or turn and take his chances. After a quick inner monologue, he figured he didn't need to add more property damage and vehicular manslaughter to the list of laws he'd broken. So when the street ended, he turned his massive body to the right and kept going, his footsteps thudding and shaking the ground with every movement. Now it was evident to Cain that he had another problem.....New York traffic. He couldn't take more than two steps without risking stepping on a car.....so he started stepping on cars.
For another 10 minutes or so, Cain through some miracle stayed ahead of the SHIELD agents, but eventually, they caught up to him near the East Rive, and they all had nullifier collars. Cain was beat, and they knew it...well they didn't know jack shit, and Cain was gonna shove that down their faces. Holding his hands up, his perpetual scowl formed into a small grin."Alright boys....looks like ya caught the Juggernaut, so go head and give yerselves a pat on the back."
Cain was a lug-head sure, but he wasn't as dumb as people liked to think he was. Holding both hands high above his head, he feigned surrender, waiting until one of the agents was close enough to put the collar around his massive neck. As the man reached up and was trying to secure the collar, Cain's hand shot out and closed around him much faster than his size seemed to allow.
Now he held the man aloft and his smile turned into a grin of pure glee as he slowly increased the pressure. He could feel, then hear the man's bones begin to fracture as he begged for his life. Cain wasn't gonna kill him, he just wanted to hear him squeal a bit before he made his escape. "Whatsamatter pretty boy? Scared ta die? Then you shouldn't...have...taken...this...job!!!"
Winding up, Cain tossed the man and watched him fly through the storefront window of some mom and pop grocery store.
That's when the other agents unloaded on him; they were using some type of SHIELD, high grade explosive rounds, but they were annoying more than anything. While the projectiles blossomed into miniature explosions on his skin, he brought both hands down on the concrete; the result fractured the impact point and sent a shockwave through the ground, knocking everyone and everything nearby over...violently. The SHIELD agents were now flat on their asses, confused about what just happened, and that was how Cain wanted it. "Well boys, be thankful I let you off with a warning. Come after the Juggernaut again though, and I'll show you why they call me unstoppable."
Turning toward the river, he got a running start and dove in. As he sank, he knew they wouldn't catch him....now he just had to think of someplace he could hide out for a few days until this whole thing blew over. This post has been edited by Cain Marko on Jun 30 2012, 05:02 AM
