Samson (Fox)
Real Name:
Search for 'Samson (Fox)' on Amazon


Bio:
Samson is a direct descendant of the biblical Samson. Like his ancestor, Samson has immense strength and endurance, but loses his powers if his hair is cut. Samson learned about his heritage when he was a grown man, after his mother revealed his ancestry.

In college, his friend Professor Dunn showed him a new invention, an "iconoscope", which allowed the viewer to watch remote scenes without a transmitter. The iconoscope picked up the image of an eastern holy man, who was praying for a higher power to sent someone to battle evil. Samson used his superpowers to visit the holy man, and agreed to be that champion.
