Americop
Real Name: Bartholomew Gallows
Search for 'Americop' on Amazon


Powers:
Trained to the pinnacle of perfection, Americop is an expert-hand-to-hand combatant, skilled in several martial arts, as well as a focused and calculating strategist. He uses a small arsenal of police weaponry, including twin .45 ACP caliber pistols, a 24-inch side-handle baton, and fixed blade tactical knife. His modified police uniform consists of bulletproof Kevlar body armor, a ballistic facemask, and a customized 8-point uniform cap which can be used as a throwing weapon. Americop drives a highly modified pickup truck equipped with a roof-mounted light bar, police siren, public address system, and bulletproof armor and windows.

Bio:
Disillusioned at the law's inability to protect society from the lawless, Houston Police Officer Bart Gallows resigned from the force and became America's self-appointed top law-enforcement official: Americop. Believing himself the future of law enforcement, Americop traversed the nation, monitoring police scanners and meting out justice to those he deemed perpetrators, acting as judge, jury, and, more often than not, executioner. Occasionally confiscating money from drug busts, he donated half to drug rehabilitation programs and kept the remainder to maintain his arsenal. While tracking a child abduction ring across the United States, Americop clashed with Captain America (Steve Rogers), who was appalled by his brutality. Americop's investigation led him to the New Orleans mansion of indestructible munitions magnate Damon Dran. Although initially subdued by a gas grenade attack and imprisoned alongside Captain America, the determined Americop broke free and killed several of Dran's mercenaries. He shot down Dran's retreating helicopter before escaping. He mistakenly believed that he had killed Damon.


Recently Norman Osborn targeted Americop as the Thunderbolts next target. Osborn however only chose Bullseye and Penance to capture him, hoping that would toughen Penance up. During the fight that followed Penance released an energy surge that paralyzed Americop. The two Thunderbolts then carted Americop off to the T-Wagon to take him back to Thunderbolt Mountain.
