Powers/Abilities: Like all members of Wetworks, Dozer is bonded to a symbiote which normally hides inside him, but can flow out to coat his skin with a golden armour. As well as making him virtually invulnerable, this enhances his strength and reflexes. He has a telepathic link with the other symbiote wearers, the rest of Wetworks.
The symbiote recognised that Dozer was proud of his muscular physique and enhanced it, allowing him to grow in size. Unfortunately it continued to enhance it more and more until he grew so large his body couldn't stand up or his bones would break. To continue to function as part of the squad, Dozer was hooked in to a gigantic suit of heavily-armed armour, until he later learned control his powers and stop his growth at around ten foot tall. His strength was far greater than the rest of Wetworks.
Grail eventually taught Dozer to focus his chi, allowing him to generate several ORBs (Orbital Reconnaissance/Battle-spheres) which he could send flying around, through solid objects, and then have relay information back and forth through them.
History: Joe gained the nickname Dozer back in university when he was playing American Football, and carried it over when he went into the military, where he became known for crashing through enemy lines. He developed a fondness for heavy weapons, becoming the artillery man. After a while he was recruited to Jackson Dane's new Team-7, which led him to become bonded to a symbiote and become a member of Wetworks.
