Status: Founding member and leader of Team M.E.C.H.A. before Industrial Revolution caused it to break up.
History: When Mike stumbled upon a mothballed secret military mecha research base, he saw his chance to become a superhero. Using the base to construct mecha prototypes copied from anime shows, he formed Team M.E.C.H.A. to fight crime.
Through the adventures that followed, Mike led the team at all times, except during the Industrial Revolution when he was incapacitated. As he did so, he began to realize that being a superhero was not all fun and games. At last, after being shot in the chest by Adam Douglas, Mike tired of superheroing and dissolved Team M.E.C.H.A., returning to college at the Southwest Missouri State University at the next semester.
During Mike's attendance of SMSU, the College Anarchist started bombing the campus. After Ariella and Robert's wedding in Terrania, Mike's roommate Chris Meadows talked him into becoming a superhero once more, to defend the campus against the Anarchist.

Mike is an anime fan, especially mecha anime. He cares very deeply for his sister, Summer, and it was in fact for her that he devised the scheme of becoming Team M.E.C.H.A. However, he can sometimes be a bit scatterbrained in his attempts to come up with brilliant plans (for example, his plan to get Team M.E.C.H.A. noticed as a superhero group by pulling and stopping raids in Cassville,_Missouri_, the small town located near Team M.E.C.H.A.'s base).
As the leader of Team M.E.C.H.A., Mike had trouble with the mantle of leadership. He felt anguished by factors that he had no control over--Summer's transformation, Adam Douglas joining the Industrial Revolution, et cetera. He finally tired of the whole thing and dissolved the team, but has recently discovered that it isn't quite so easy to walk away.
