Earth 10: Vigilante

No longer a singing cowboy by day and western themed hero by night pf Greg Saunders (and certainly not a homicidal gun-toter like the Adrian Chase version), Adam MacTaggart is a Union soldier reanimated by his mad scientist uncle using Victor Frankenstein’s notebooks in 1863 who came back from the dead all but immortal. Since then he's served as a US Marshal (there's a small branch of the service dedicated to his activities) and he uses his extremely well honed sharpshooting, brawling, roping and above all detective skills (backed by 150 years of electrical engineering and medical training building on his mad scientist uncle's work) to insure equal justice for all under the law. 


I Love, love, love this character. This is Logan updating his PC from our wild west Feng Shui game and he perfectly captures the vibe I was looking for: he has the same costume as the Gre Saunders version and many of the same skills, but a whole new vibe with the history and science skills.
