BIOGRAPHY:
The Civil War claimed many lives…but one of those lives still hasn’t ended! Union doctor Robert Dickering found himself on the wrong side of the battle lines, and despite his heroic treatment of a fallen enemy soldier, he also found himself on the wrong end of a noose! But a shadowy power stepped forth in the twilit moments between life and death and offered him a deal he couldn’t refuse: to forever roam the Earth, saving the lives of innocents condemned like himself – or hastening the deaths of the guilty!

POWERS:

Robert Dickering transforms at night to become the superhuman Hangman, able to summon a supernatural steed and weild a noose that appears to respond to his control. He appears to be long-lived or possibly immortal, and has more than human strength. He is also able to survive gunshots, although not without sustaining a degree of injury from such assault. His injuries as the Hangman appear to affect the Robert Dickering form.

Medical training and expertise.

Above-human.

The transformation appears painful and uncontrollable, coinciding with sundown and reverting back at sunrise.
