Real Name: Malcom King
Search for 'Strafe (Wildstorm)' on Amazon
Malcolm King was a latent superhuman (or "Seedling") who had never been activated until he and his brother Jackson King (better known as Battalion) were attacked at a funeral by terrorists, and Battalion's teammate Synergy used her catalyst ability to activated Malcolm's latent superpowers. Afterwards, he joined Stormwatch under the codename Strafe.
Some time later, however, he was manipulated by his father Isaiah (now called Despot) into joining the villain team Warguard and betraying Stormwatch.
Caught, he was disgraced and sentenced to a United Nations prison, where a villain team called The Changers later tried to get him to reveal Stormwatch's secrets. Eventually, his brother Battalion used his potent psychic abilities to place Strafe into a coma.
Years later, he was released by Agent Morrow, who was trying to track down his missing brother. Unknown to both of them at the time, they were vital parts of The Monarchy's plan.
Now known as Bellerophon, Malcolm was merged with a Kheran Dream Machine: an alien device capable of turning dreams and thoughts into reality. This greatly increased his powers, which had previously been limited to energy manipulation. It is unclear whether he still retains his original powers, but the Dream Machine allows him to replicate them in any case..
