  • A press conference for Howard-RiverTech announces their new plan to assist certain exobyte heroes in their fight against Brainiac.

ModificationsEdit

BlackWing's cowl contained information on various types of performance enhancing compounds. Aware of his increasing age, and the oncoming war with Brainiac, BlackWing looked to his counterpart to use this information to create a serum to enhance his physical abilities.


  • Using information gathered from BlackWing's cowl, Howard-RiverTech (HRT) was able to create a blueprint based on classified "super-soldier" serums, and kryptonian nanotech from the alternate timeline. Without access to all the necessary materials and elements, a derivative of this compound was created (HRT Compound 000).
  • HRT Compound 000
    • Increases bone and muscle density, allowing BlackWing to withstand more severe injuries
    • Enhances sight & reflexes by a factor of 3
    • Increased elasticity and density of supporting tissue (ligaments, tendons, etc.) - Allows BlackWing to move at higher speeds due to his increased reactions without injuring himself.
    • Increased regenerative ability - While BlackWing cannot regenerate limbs, he can recover from serious injuries more quickly, requiring less time at medical facilities.

In combination with BlackWing's stronger suits, this allows BlackWing to stand toe-to-toe with metahumans.

7

Standard BlackWing suit.



Standard Suit - Protects the user from knives and small arms fire. The cowl, shoulder plates, gauntlets, and boots are composed of an alloy of various alien metals that are both dense and lightweight.





5

Early version of the Metasuit.

Metasuit - Highly protective suit for direct combat with metahumans. Can withstand small arms fire, direct energy projectiles, and explosives. Due to the increased armor and weight, a grapnel cannon is built into the suit's gauntlets. The metasuit also features:
  • Enhanced strength and mobility
  • Biogel Dispersal System
  • A Kinetic Shield System
  • Motion Sensors
  • Limited Camouflage
    6

    A later version of the Metasuit.


A later version of the Metasuit lacks a cape (deemed too much of a liability in combat). The utility belt and chest were streamlined for additional mobility. The rest of the suit was recreated with the addition of Nth metal alloy, further increasing strength enhancements.
