BACKGROUND: Flicker (... and die) is a relatively unknown 
DC villain who made Green Lantern's life miserable back in
the issues 20-25 (2nd series). He is not only a mercenary,
but also a bounty hunter. 

POWERS AND SKILLS: Flicker has many powers. His main weapon
is his whip, with which he can perform amazing maneuvers
(give him a Martial Art with it if you like). Because of
his Teleport power, he is very difficult to catch and hold. 
He can fly, see through objects and in the dark (but he is
probably not Kryptonian), and he heals rather quickly. 
Although he seems pretty tough (rPD/rED 16), Green Lantern
(a normal person, for all purposes) was able to punch his
lights out ... so I included a Glass Jaw in the write-up. 

CAMPAIGN USE: You can use Flicker for really offbeat space
campaigns where everybody plays people like Green Lantern
or Thor; then he becomes a minor nuisance. The second option
is to use Flicker in your standard Champions campaign where 
he hunts friendly and unfriendly aliens ... which sometimes 
makes him an ally, and sometimes an enemy. He is greedy, 
amoral and a little sadist, but he is also quite witty 
and musketeer-like. 

THE CRUSADERS CAMPAIGN: I made him, but I never used him.
