PRANCEBOT 2.0 (Male/Robot)
(aka Jason Kelly)
Brawn: 23, Body 20, Brains 8
   Traits: Martial Artist, Nimble, Robot, Super Power (Personal/Permanent: Super Speed, plus Holographic Image Projection/Armor bonus).
   Combat Maneuvers: Backflip, Basic Attack, Dance Move, Disarm, Furious Fists, Seduce
   Important Stuff Worn/Wielded: Built-in Holographic Image Projector (Armor. Absorbs up to 2 points of damage. While functioning, the Holographic Image Projector allows Prancebot 2.0 to appear as a perfect copy of any person that is in the holo-imaging database, as well as a wide selection of "generic" people who don't actually exist. The holographic images are all dressed in various styles of party clothes and evening wear. The projection stops working once Prancebot's armor has absorbed 2 points of damage. It can be repaired, of course.). Laser Sword (Medium Weapon [when activated], deals 3 points of damage that ignore armor).

Origin Story
Suffering from Gulf War Syndrome and extremely depressed, Captain Jason Kelly felt he had nowhere to go but down... until offered a chance by the US government to join an extremely top secret new program! Upon accepting, Jason Kelly was no more for his consciousness was fused with an artificial cyborg body and became: Prancebot 2.0!
   As Prancebot 2.0, Kelly infiltrates the parties of the rich and famous to protect them from terrorists and to ferret out evil in their midst (such as those who fund terrorists). He also hangs out with their teenage children to monitor them and prevent them from being recruited into extremist organizations.

As a cybernetic being, Prancebot 2.0 is immune to most diseases and extremely resistant to injury. Through advanced bio-holographic imaging technology, he has the ability to appear as virtually anyone on planet Earth (at least anyone who has been caught on one of the millions upon millions of hidden cameras the NSA has secreted around the globe), in an illusion so real that it even stands up to close, physical contact. Similarly, he can perfectly mimic the voice of anyone on Earth who has ever used a phone or an innercom system.

Enemies and Allies
Prancebot 1.0 is his greatest enemy. The original Prancebot went rogue after decided that it was wrong for the government to be spying on parties without notifying anyone in attendance. After being laughed at by every media outlet he approached with his story, except, he decided his only option to stop the intrusion was to destroy his replacement. There are also a number of terrorist masterminds and drug lords who want to see Prancebot 2.0 on the scrapheap.
   Prancebot 2.0 can call upon the full resources of the U.S. government, and he is a friend and ally to other pro-American superheroes.
