Powers/Abilities: The Gauntlet, apparently possessed by the ghost of Judge Flint, can take control of the arm of the wearer, and seems to have a psychic ability to predict events around it. It can grant superhuman strength to the wearer if appropriate, and even deflect bullets. The gauntlet is indestructible, and not only cannot be penetrated by projectiles, but protects the wearer from any impact injuries which would normally be incurred (in other words, not only does it block bullets, it absorbs all the kinetic energy too, so no risk of broken bones like you might get with a bulletproof vest); when it grasps a helocopter's tail rotor as the blades are spinning, the blades break, leaving the wearer uninjured. It can also move of its own volition, forcing people to don it.
History: A strange gauntlet that had once belonged to a medieval law-maker, Judge Flint, is found after being hidden for centuries. Every individual who wears it, be the good or wicked, finds that it brings them justice.
