William "Billy Mac"
McIntyre never saw much of his father growing up. His mother
explained his father's long absences by claiming that Jimmy
McIntyre had joined the merchant marines. Billy Mac knew
better though. He'd found his father's costume. He knew
his father was the hired underling of a costumed criminal.
But Billy Mac kept quiet because he didn't want to hurt
his mother. Jimmy McIntyre worked for an old enemy of the
original Hourman's named Dr. Cobalt. At one point, however,
Jimmy had actually lept out to save Hourman from one of
Dr. Cobalt's blasts. Hourman then, in turn, apprehended
Dr. Cobalt and his gang.
Jimmy MacIntyre was
sentenced to hard time. Feeling like he owed Jimmy something,
Hourman payed a late night visit to the MacIntyre home where
he confronted young Billy Mac and warned him not to be like
his father. Will MacIntyre took those words to heart, deciding
that since his father had been a crook, he would be a hero.
Will MacIntyre was relentless in his pursuit of that goal.
He began training his body and mind when he was still just
eight years old. He isolated himself from all distractions
and all but ignored his peers. Becoming a hero like Hourman
was what gave Will MacIntyre's life meaning. By age seventeen,
he had acquired the physique of a body-builder. When he went
to college, he studied martial arts, science, criminology,
anything that would prepare him for life as a crimefighter.
Gradually, his powers began to assert themselves.
Contact with Dr. Cobalt's
equipment resulted in Will McIntyre becoming linked to the
electromagnetic spectrum. Taking the identity Triumph, he
debuted almost simultaneously with Superman. A small grouping
of heroes successfully repelled an invasion of pale martians
and while the possability of a group being formed was discussed,
nothing came of it.
had uncovered a disturbance in the earth's magnetic field.
Aliens were sucking the planet dry of its magnetic energy
and Triumph knew that this was a time for action. Convincing
Superman to vouch for him, Triumph was able to gather the
combined might of Barry Allen, Hal Jordan, Dinah Lance, Aquaman
and the Martian Manhunter in their first formal grouping as
the Justice League of America to repell the invasion. There
was tension in the group, however, as Triumph's anti-social,
task-oriented personality lead to conflict. As the battle
hit its crucial moment, the heroes turned their attention
towards a variety of tasks. The Martian Manhunter urged Triumph
to be patient but Triumph felt the need to act. He punched
the Martian Manhunter and proceeded to attack the alien ship.
Damaging its space/time drive, Triumph and the ship were pulled
into a sort of temporal limbo. The last few days of memory
involving Triumph and the ship were forgotten by all who remained
behind as the group drifted back to their seperate bases,
unsure why they had come to Washington, DC. In Triumph's absence,
the Justice League formed again to repel an Appellaxian invasion,
no one the wiser that the team had already formed under Triumph
weeks before to repel another alien invasion. When the Crisis
in Time known as Zero Hour struck, Triumph and his alien adversaries
were released from limbo. Triumph sought further aid from
the Justice League of that era, who reluctantly provided it.
Despite a series of misunderstandings, the team was successful.
Triumph moved into one of the Martian Manhunter's homes as
a houseguest of sorts until he got in touch with his broker
and discovered that an investment in the Armchair Shopper
Network ten years earlier had payed off, making Will McIntyre
Triumph has over
a million dollars in disposable income, earned through an
investment in the Armchair Shopping Network made ten years
ago. Triumph's expenses are generally modest, save for the
occasional expense in getting crime scene information processed
or hiring specialists to help him out on difficult cases.
His money combined with income made from various new investments
should last him indefinitely. In terms of equipment, Triumph
isn't up on the latest technology and prefers not to rely
on gadgets. His costume is capable of shifting shape between
civilian clothing and costume form, however. Beyond that,
he doesn't have any special gadgetry or equipment at his
Triumph has studied
basic psychology and criminology. He is relatively familiar
with the criminal psyche and with the typical motivations
behind crime. Additionally, he is fairly well-versed in
the physical sciences and capable of applying that knowledge
to coordinate other heroes in the use of their powers to
produce an attack of maximum effectiveness in many cases
although his plans are generally a bit too rigid, allowing
for almost no margin of error. In regards to his human resources,
Will McIntyre has few contacts. His staunchest ally is Russell
"Rusty" Wells, an old friend and his personal broker. Wells
oversees most aspects of McIntyre's financial affairs.
Beyond that, Triumph
has few friends or contacts. His mother is dead and his
father, diagnosed with cancer, escaped from prison and has
not been heard from in two years. Triumph is known in the
heroic community although disliked by many, primarily those
who distrust the claim that he founded the Justice League.
His strongest supporters are in the extended family of the
Justice League, most of whom accept Triumph's claim. Even
those on Triumph's side tend to be alienated by his attitude
and generally avoid him if possible.
and Triumph have worked together on several Occasions,
though it is only recently they are coming to a better
understanding of one another.
Name: William McIntryre
Public ID: Will
McIntyre is a low profile figure, a man who made a small
fortune in the stock market and yet, lives very simply.
There is a ten year gap during which no one has seen him
and those who are familiar with him are shocked by how well
he's aged considering the fact that he is ostensibly 32
Most people who know him know that he is
Triumph, as he makes no effort to hide his identity although
he also makes no effort to inform people of it. Costume
ID: Triumph is a figure somewhat enshrouded in mystery.
Two years ago, he appeared, claiming to be the founder of
the Justice League. This claim combined with his authoritative
attitude has made him unpopular with many in the heroic
community. Most costumed heroes will recognize him although
few know him well. The general public is only vaguely aware
of his existence although he is a familiar figure in times
