Ftitz Von Meyer
Body Armor: Swarms body is actually a community of bees covering Von Meyer’s skeleton. These bee’s provide a living carpet of protection equivalent to Incredible strength bodt armor from all physical and energy attacks. Swarm is naturally subject to those attacks that affect bees. Intense cold, for example harms them and smoke causes the bees to become sluggish and less aggressive.
Bee Control: Swarm mentally controls the colony of super bees and can fire swarms of these creatures in “bee blasts” with a range of 4 areas. The bees normally move up to 3 areas per round and have the following stats for each attacking swarm.
Each swarm that Swarm controls attacks as a seperate creature under the control of it’s master. Bees always get the initiative and can inflict Excellent damage each round (though cannot Stun or Slam). If reduced to 0 health, Swarm disbands.
Flight: The bees can lift what remains of von Meyer’s body up ot 3 areas per round and even hover in place.
Fritz von Meyer was an escaped Nazi scientist in South America who engaged in research on bees. While exploring the jungle, Meyer found a group of super-bees, mutated by the effects of a radioactive meteorite. These bees were extremely intellient and mostly passive. Meyer thought to control the bees by a psionic ray, but the bees attacked him instead. By the time Meyer succeded in controling the queen bee, the super-bees had destroyed Meyer’s body. The queen bee and Meyer’s will were linked, however, producing Swarm. Swarm attacked Los Angeles and on several occasions New York. In the first case he was defeated by the Champions of Los Angeles., in the latter cases by Spider-Man. Spidey managed to to dispand the component bees of Swarms body on both occasions. Von Meyer’s radioactive skeleton is once again kept in a lead vault in a basement at ESU.
