Imus Champion is a proven master of many skills, including martial arts, and he surrounds himself with hi-tech equipment.
Equipment: Imus Champion has collected a number of items, including: a Hypno-Fish, the head of the Ultron, the mask of Jinku, a brain mine of the |Deviants, the mystic Wand of Watoomb, the wonder glove and anti-gravity discs of the Wizard, the Staff of Seth, an EMP device, a bow and various trick arrows patterned after Hawkeye's, the Star-blaster of the criminal group Zodiac, a prototype of the dimension-spanning Nth Projector and the armour schematics of the villain Porcupine.
As he grew, Imus Champion developed an extraordinarily large body, one so large that doctors told him he would never be able to physically support himself. Instead, Champion drove himself to build his muscles powerful enough to do just that. In addition, he established himself as a financier, entrepreneur, and industrialist becoming one of the fifty wealthiest men on the planet. Unsatisfied with his successes in the business world, Champion was determined to master as many skills as possible and acquire as much wealth and priceless artefacts as he could. Among the skills he has come to master include various martial arts as well as stage magic and illusion.
As archery was one of the skills he had yet to master, Champion hired the hero Hawkeye to tutor him in that regard. As a mark of his confidence, Champion planned to use his newly mastered skill to trigger bombs set to activate the San Andreas Fault so that the ensuing earthquake would drop California into the sea and allow Champion to salvage sunken canisters of nerve gas.
