The Absolvers (Redeemers + Justifiers):

Amalgamation of: Nighthawk + Tin Man
Counterpart of: Iron Bat (Iron Man + Batman)
Real Name: Timothy “Tim” Richmond
Biography: Timothy Richmond is a wealthy politically-minded businessman who inherited his father’s fortune after he died of a heart attack. Ready and willing to fight crime and supervillains, Tim built himself a robotic suit of armor, powered by his own bio-kinetic energy, and became the Satellite. He soon joined American Frag’s (Hyperion + Americommando) [Super-Soldier (Captain America + Superman)] superhero team, the Squadron Maximum. When Tim’s teammate Yardstick (Tom Thumb + Skyscraper) was slain in battle with a supervillain, American Frag and other Squadron members decided to use one of Yardstick’s inventions, the “Behavior Modification Machine”, to force criminals they capture to end their criminal ways. Satellite was disgusted by this blatant misuse of their power and left the Squadron. As Squadron Maximum slowly lost their moral compasses and attempted to take control of the American government, Satellite formed the Absolvers to combat the oppressive uprising. Satellite and American Frag eventually came to blows, but the Absolver Chernobyrd poisoned Frag with the radioactivity of radion, an alien ore that’s deadly to New Eternals (Eternals + New Gods), like Frag. While Frag was incapacitated, Satellite explained to him that Yardstick told him that he was diagnosed with cancer, and that his dying wish was to die fighting for justice. Frag, wishing to not further taint his friend’s memory, had the Squadron reverse the effects of the BMM on the villains, destroy the machine, and relinquish control of the USA. The Absolvers disbanded after that.
Powers: Wears a robotic suit of armor that grants him super strength/durability/reflexes, flight, various weapons and tools, and remote computer interfacing. Tim has a high intelligence, and extensive combat training.

During the battle the Absolvers and the Squadron Maximum, Chernobyrd damaged Glowtesque’s (Dr. Spectrum + Monster) [Green Giant (Hulk + Green Lantern {Hal Jordan})] energy crystal, and the combined energies sent Albert two years into the future for two seconds, where he caught a glimpse of American Frag as the evil ruler of Earth. Even though the Squadron was defeated and they relinquished control of America, Chernobyrd joined the Squadron after the Absolvers’ disbanded in order to keep this future from coming to pass, willing to kill Frag if necessary.

Biography: A womanizing hero from the United Kingdom, Golden Bow was originally the “beau” (pun intended) of his Squadron Maximum teammate Hornet Lady (Lady Lark/Skylark + Hornet) [Wasp Girl (Wasp + Hawkgirl)]. He took advantage of her trust, however, and she ended up dumping him for fellow Squadron member Yardstick. Wyatt tried to beg her for forgiveness, but she couldn’t bring herself to reconcile with him. Distraught, he took a walk while still in his costume, and was captured by their enemies, Institute Extreme (Institute of Evil + Extremists) [Secret Society of Evil (Masters of Evil + Secret Society of Super Villains)]. The villains tortured him into revealing the Squadron’s secret headquarters, and they captured the heroes and used Yardstick’s Behavior Modification Machine to enslave their minds. Golden Bow managed to escape captivity and fight off the mind-controlled heroes by himself, but in the end they shook off the effects of the machine and turned against the Institute. Squadron Maximum, soon after, voted on expelling GB from their ranks. When the Squadron started taking control of the US, Golden Bow joined Satellite’s Absolvers in order to redeem himself.

I like the American Frag Vs. Satellite battle outcome.

When Glowtesque accidentally sent Chernobyrd into the future, it was drained of all its power and changed back into its human form. 2 seconds later, Chernobyrd crash-landed near the site of Frag's and Satellite's battle, with only enough energy left to poison Frag with radion energy.
