Real Name: Unrevealed

Identity/Class: Human, technology user (armoured battlesuit)

Occupation: Apparent dilettante.

Affiliations: crimefighting partner of Diamond, Zora, Retro Girl; allied with various other superheroes over the years.

Enemies: Unspecified.

Known Relatives: None

Aliases: None known

Base of Operations: Secret base where he monitors police and news channels to find out if he is needed, unidentified location.

First Appearance: Powers #1: Who killed Retro Girl (Image, 2000)

Powers/Abilities: Triphammer's armoured suit gives him super-strength (enough to lift a car, probably more); it has leg jets for flying and unspecified number of weapons systems (so far he has demonstrated only one, a disintegration ray). He also has a number of spare armours although it is unclear how similar they are in their capabilities. All his armours are bullet-proof, and probably capable of shrugging off much more.

History: Not much is known about Triphammer except that he is a rich inventor, an acquaintance of both Retro Girl (whom he slept with a couple of times) and Walker (who knows his secret identity and base). When the murderer of Retro Girl was apprehended, he appeared and executed the killer to prevent the man's trial becoming media circus. Then he vanished for parts unknown. When Walker met him the next time, he had changed his appearance.

Comments: Created by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming.
