Powers/Abilities: Johnny Nemo has no powers as such (unless you count his transplanted organs, but they're not superhuman, just new). He does carry an impressive amount of firepower and explosive devices on his person.

History: Johnny Nemo is a private eye in the city of New London in the year 2921. He's foul-mouthed, selfish and greedy, and carries an arsenal of weapons to help him to kill as many people as possible more easily. And he's the good guy.

New London is a cesspit, full of corpses, junkies, fascists and gorgeous women (hey, it's detective noir, the beautiful women are to be expected.) Johnny Nemo is a product of that city, a Byronic figure who finds it simpler to have new liver and lungs transplanted than to quit drinking and smoking, a man who believes in carrying as many weapons as he can.

Comments: Created by Pete Milligan and Brett Ewins. According to writer Milligan, he claims that while both New London and Nemo are fictitious, they are based on real characters. But he could be joking when he said that.
