Clock King

William Tockman Fugate (a.k.a. Tempus Fuggit, Tempus Fugart)

A brilliant inventor, William Tockman Fugate is best described as a 'self-made man'. An interest in clocks and timing - combined with a photographic memory - led to a keen interest in schedules and efficiency. However, when a tragedy tore apart his family, William devoted himself to 'fixing' the problems of society.   Often he is a known villain and occasionally an anti-hero or vigilante. The Clock King is a dangerous, mercenary opponent whose combination of gadgets, skill, and timing that borders on almost meta powered make him a formidable foe.  



Being told he had six months to live, the brilliant inventor William Tockman Fugate devised a new, revolutionary type of timer for artificial hearts through an intense time and motion study of time and how it interacts with the physical form. In this way, he felt this would allow his sister to pay for a transplant and be taken care of when he passed on.


However, before he could realize any profits from it to pay for his sister’s transplant surgery to save her life, his backer, Lex Luthor, used a legal loophole to appropriate the ‘Fugate Heart’ for LexLabs use. William Fugate’s sister died in his arms, her transplant having gone to yet another corporate billionaire magnate who used his influence to move himself up the chain of donors. Shortly after her death, he learned that he did not have six months to live. There was a mix up in paperwork, it seems the hospital that diagnosed him had a mix up due to a clerical error which was the fault of the records company that the Hospital used. William Fugate never had been terminally ill.


Overcome with grief, William threw himself into a deeper study of time and the nature of time.


He intended to invent a working time machine. To some degree, he succeeded and attempted to go back to save his sister. Since the death of his sister was the catalyst for the invention, no matter what he attempted, she still died. Then he discovered he had never traveled in time at all, but across dimensions.


Mind near the breaking point, grief became rage, then revenge. Armed with an uncanny ability for precision timing, he destroyed much of his notes and the cross-dimensional device, then threw himself into an intense study in numerous forms of martial arts, philosophies, and acrobatics. William used the money saved from previous inventions to travel the globe, to study, to train in those disciplines.


After several years of near-obsessive study where he has mastered several disciplines, he turns his attention towards the subject of his rage: billionaire corporate playboys, CEOs, and mega-corporations. The people he considers a plague on humanity, a disease that should be eradicated.
