ALTER EGO: Cornelius Van Runt
ALIASES: The Little Man
CREATOR: Dave Van Domelen
PRIMARY WRITER: Dave Van Domelen
POWERS: A state-of-the-art cyborg enhanced with autorepair systems and other goodies thanks to technology from 2077, Coppermane's current body was rebuilt and enhanced by Darkheart and Steelwind. Strong, fast, armored, possessed of numerous enhanced sensory systems and modular weapons systems. His long flowing "hair" is actually a heat-exhaust system composed of monofilament wires which can get hot enough to melt through softer metals when Coppermane is at full power output.
PERSONALITY: An opportunist, but also careful, you don't make it to the top of the organized crime business any other way. Vengeful as well, and doesn't always keep his lust for revenge in check. His current targets for revenge are the Queen Bee and Dvandom Force.
HISTORY: Cornelius Van Runt rose slowly and carefully through the Sig.ago mob scene until he controlled the city's illegal activities in the late 1960s. Despite incursions by the Yakuza in the 1970s, he held his grip on the city against even figures like the Queen Bee, until his ill-advised alliance with DeFacto left him crippled and near death. His pet mad scientist refitted him with a powerful cyborg body, and he set out for revenge against Dvandom Force (since DeFacto was now dead) and the Queen Bee (who had moved in to take over "his" city during his recovery). Severely damaged in his attempt on Dvandom Force, he was offered a place in the Century Pact, and reluctantly accepted. He used the resources of the Pact to launch subtle and not so subtle attacks on Queen Enterprises, which are currently still underway as of Dvandom Force #78.
