Story: Percival Wainright III grew up in an affluent family in South Hampton, Long Island. His mutant powers manifested early. At 8 years of age he was already well below average height and above average width than the other kids and his skin had become near invulnerable and taken a dark blue shade. Percival's good humor and outgoing personality made him the most popular boy in school instead of getting picked on as could be expected [3].

As he got older, Percival became bored. He had become invulnerable and at age 18, he went out to find meaning in his life. He started using his abilities for extreme experiences like skydiving without a parachute and diving for pirate's treasure in the Atlantic Ocean without gear [3]. When Morgan Stryker needed to gather a team got a rescue operation for CIA in Manigua, Black Anvil was asked to join which he did [1].

Black Anvil stayed with the team until Stryker disbanded Codename: Strykeforce [2]. In the new Strykeforce, Black Anvil is the only one from the original team except Morgan Stryker [4].

Skills & abilities: Super strength and super dense skin. Black Anvil can military press approximately 75 tons without effort and withstand concussive forces up to 82,000 tons of TNT. His dense skin also makes him able to withstand zero-G of deep space by holding his breath.
