Night Phantom
Real Name: Travis Hoyt
Search for 'Night Phantom' on Amazon


Powers:
Hoyt gained superhuman strength (Class 25) and durability, making him virtually invulnerable. His skin was hideously scarred, and he covered it with bandages, as well as a plastic mask when he wished to appear in his original form. He used a loudspeaker to project drumbeats when in action, in order to feed on the local superstition.

Bio:
Travis Hoyt was a renown novelist, several times making it on the best-seller list. He was in a plane wreck, which he survived, but was left confined to a wheelchair. He withdrew from civilization and moved to Haiti.

Hoyt blamed technology and progress for his injury and was disgusted by the development going on in Haiti. He entered an unfinished plant during a work break due to the rainy season. The earth and timber had been weakened by the rain, and it gave way, plunging him into an underground cavern and pool. The pool was radioactive, and Hoyt was instantly changed by it, regaining the use of his legs. Repeated bathing made him stronger and stronger, although its corrosive nature left him severely scarred. Hoyt covered his skin with thin bandages around his head, and began wearing a plastic mask in the form of his original face.

Now possessing the power to take vengeance on the technology that he hated, Hoyt, as the Night Phantom, began to sabotage and destroy power plants in Haiti. After destroying Project: Caribbean, a division of Stark Industries, he attracted the attention of Tony Stark. Stark participated with the Haitian police inspector, Christophe, in investigating the source of the plant's destruction. Natives and workers had named the Night Phantom as the cause, but they had chalked it up to local superstition. The Night Phantom attacked Stark and Hoyt, who stopped them in their jeep and then threw it into the jungle.

Janice Cord, the then-girlfriend of Stark, encountered the scene of the accident. Christophe recovered first and set out after the Night Phantom, sending Janice to bring Stark back to the house of Travis Hoyt, an old friend of her father. Hoyt captured Christophe, then drove Stark out of his house. Resenting the fact that Janice would choose a man like Stark over himself, Hoyt revealed his true form to her and attempted to force her into the same underground pool, to make her a better mate for him.

Stark, as Iron Man, investigated the site of his accident and tracked it down to the vicinity of Hoyt's lair, and followed the sound of the drumbeats to Hoyt's cavern. Iron Man saved Janice from Hoyt, and then battled him. When Iron Man succeeding in stunning Hoyt with a point-blank blast from his repulsor rays, Hoyt leapt back into the pool to increase his power even further. However, a crack in the bottom of the pool had been weakened by the constant vibration of the heavily amplified drumbeats, and the force and weight of the Night Phantom caused it to collapse. The hole in the bottom of the pool generated a powerful whirlpool that drug the Night Phantom down and washed him away.
