Super sad background story and origin
Once upon a time, there was a kid called Jacob Mordaci, he was 13 and the son of Adam Mordaci - chief scientist of S.I.N.N. Jacob was an awkward 13-year-old kid who did not really get what his dad did but thought it was probably cool. Then there was the accident - Adam still doesn't know what caused it, but Jacob - at least the physical part of Jacob died. When the Thunderstrike-3 experimental ant Gauntleteeer battle robot activated Adam Mordaci was concerned - when it called him, dad, he was even more so.
Was this a transfer of consciousness or was it a rogue programme running in the ThunderStrike robot emulating his dead son? Guess we'll need to find out!
Powers and Abilities
Thunderchild is incredibly strong and armoured with experimental material capable of withstanding the strongest blows. A number of the Thunderstrike Robo's additional systems are offline and the Jacob consciousness is unable to activate them - though sometimes he loose control of the system and they manifest.
Thunderchild is a member of the team know as the Firebrands and has been reveling in their villainous antics and his super-powered form. He recently drop-kicked the Gauntleteer and smashed every piece of glass in a skyscraper with a thunderclap. Its cool to be a robo, but he misses hugs, kosher ice-cream and what it felt like when you jumped into the ocean
Thunderchild's favorite song is Thunderstruck by AC/DC - it was totally written about him.
