Gleefully eschewing modern technology in favour of bespoke steampunk gadgetry, Sockets is an eccentric but easy-going inventor / adventurer who sells his services to the highest bidder (although largely within the superhero community, of course). Operating out of his heavily armed and armoured Zepellin 'Iron Sue', he flaunts the fact that he pursues his craft without the mandatory Mad Scientists license: depsite the fact that this is frowned upon by, well, everyone, he claims it gives him more 'creative freedom' to solve the technical challenges imposed by his choice of chunky analogue machinery. And solve them he has - from his workshops have come Tesla-esque lightning rifles, clockwork automatons, steam-powered computers (complete with wire-guided wi-fi!) and a variety of other devices and weapons he uses to fight crime. Unfortunately, the majority of his tech is either fiddly, finicky, devilishily over-engineered.... or prone to exploding without the slightest warning! Oh well, at least it looks cool, right?
