Powers: Dowling's power is the ability to "stretch" his mind, which spreads out and colonizes the minds of anyone within one hundred feet of him. The full implications of this power are unknown, but this "stretching" of his mind is the analogue to the flexibility of Mr. Fantastic.
Bio: An analogue of the Fantastic Four's Reed Richards, but lacking the morality and humanity of his counterpart. Dowling has been involved in much of the secretive scientific research conducted behind the scenes in the last 50 years, including an American concentration camp called Science City Zero where political dissidents were used as guinea pigs. He also has connections to the Hark Corporation. He is distantly related to the Dowling Gang, enemies of the Dead Ranger (a Lone Ranger analogue), who was the father of William Leather's adoptive father. He meets his end, due to a well-laid trap set by Elijah Snow, whereby he falls to his death when Elijah summons a shiftship from the ground beneath him.
