Powers/Abilities: All of Bounty's powers were derived from cybernetic alterations. His gauntlets shot bolts of energy and devices that could leech cosmic power from a target. He had a jetpack for flight, and a personal energy field that made him nigh-invulnerable. He possessed superhuman strength (Class 50?). Bounty used a Coalition Fleet fighter craft capable of intergalactic travel. He formerly had a chip at the base of his skull that allowed the Coalition to keep track of him.

History: (Silver Surfer III#124 (fb)) -After the Coalition Fleet's defeat at Silver Surfer's hands they landed on Karidian, asking for help in killing the Surfer. When the Karidian race refused the Coalition threatened them with a doomsday device. An unnamed soldier was captured by the Coalition and offered a deal, kill the Surfer or see his planet destroyed. The soldier agreed to assassinate the Silver Surfer, and underwent experimental surgery to become a living weapon. Now called Bounty, he was given orders to travel the universe and find the Silver Surfer.

(Silver Surfer III#123) - After searching countless worlds Bounty finally found the Silver Surfer on Earth.

(Silver Surfer III#124) - Bounty confronted the Surfer in New York City. During the battle Bounty explained that the Coalition were forcing his hand. Surfer defeated him by ripping the weapons systems from his body. The Silver Surfer took pity on him, and together they traveled to Karidian. With the Surfer's help the doomsday device over Karidian was destroyed and the Coalition deposed. Bounty and the Surfer part as friends.
