Real Name: Thomas John McCall
Base of Operations:
First Appearance: Youngblood
Powers/Abilities: Badrock's main powers are his super strength and a level of invulnerability. His massive size often fools people into thinking he must be slow and ponderous - in fact his reflexes are much superior to those of normal humans.
History: The son of top U.S. genetic researcher Dr Joseph McCall, Thomas McCall never fitted in. Failing at school because he wasn't making an effort, and with no friends amongst his peers, he swallowed the contents of a vial of genetic material his father had been working on. His body underwent a startling transformation as his DNA was rewritten, turning his flesh into an organic granite-like rock. Upon discovering what had happened, his father sent him to a top security research facility for study, where they discovered (unsurprisingly) that he was now hundreds of times stronger than normal humans.
In time he learned to control his new strength, and was inducted into Youngblood, the government's high profile super-team, where he took the name Bedrock (and later Badrock). Seconded to the domestic team, he has been a member ever since.
