Thunder Strike, "real" name Don Blake, is the First Aid and Practical Biology instructor.
Unusual but not unique among the staff, he keeps an apartment off-campus but spends most of his waking hours at the house. He worked in Metropolis for a long time as an EMT. His ambulance was destroyed before Captain America could quite get there; while he's rebuilding his savings and repairing his salvaged equipment, he's now working at the School as a specialized instructor, plus emergency medical support for students and staff.
Actually, it'd be a little more accurate to say that Don is a "combat medic" reservist for Wyldfire, but Thunder Strike is an active member of the team, since apparently they aren't really the same person. Try not to ask Don about it, he gets upset.
OOC NOTE about timeline!
Dear Thunderstrike's player:
Here's what I have so far.
- Actual first appearance of mostly-Don Blake was Corporate Wars 2: Die Hard on July 11th, 2000.
He spent most of the adventure trying to find some privacy so he could get out his hammer.
- That makes his walk-off date a month earlier around the beginning of June 2000, subtract 10 weeks for training and another 8 weeks for "Don Blake" to recover from the STAR Labs procedure, that puts his start at STAR Labs on Thursday, January 27th, 2000. Which probably means his court date was 3 days before? So Monday, January 24th, 2000.
- Next appearance of Thunderstrike that I have is Case of the Sleeper Plague set on March 12, 2002.
There's a gap in between those adventures of 20 months. What did Don and Thunderstrike do in the meantime? I feel like I'm missing some adventures starring the Gorgeous Blond Flying Tank in there. Do you remember any adventures which belong in that gap?
