Pretender is a parahuman and member of the Las Vegas Wards.
Pretender wears a purple velvet costume covering most of his albino skin, has dark pink eyes, no hair, and does not wear a mask.
Abilities and PowersEdit
Pretender has the ability to take over the bodies of others, with their powers still intact. When he took over Alexandria, his dark pink eye could be seen in her empty eye socket, where her own eye was missing. Her existing eye looked normal.
Received his powers from Cauldron.
Pretender defected from the Las Vegas wards as his career was stalled(he was kicked off of team leadership). He then killed a thinker as part of an agreement to work for Cauldron. His old team, the Las Vegas Protectorate, hired Bambina, August Prince, and Starlet to free him as he was moved by the Protectorate to a more secure location. He was captured, however, by Contessa.
During the fight with Behemoth in New Delhi, he took control over Alexandria's brain dead body to fight the Endbringer.
He was present in Alexandria's body when Scion invaded the Cauldron Compound.
His stolen body was destroyed fighting Scion, presumably killing him.
