Puma (02 - Thomas Fireheart)
Real Name: Thomas Fireheart
Search for 'Puma (02 - Thomas Fireheart)' on Amazon


Powers:
Fireheart transforms physically into Puma through intense concentration, gaining height and mass while covering his body in a fine tan fur with rusty red hair, providing perfect camouflage for the desert habitat. Puma possesses superhuman strength (capable of lifting 12 tons), speed, endurance, agility (able to leap 35 feet), coordination, healing, and extraordinary senses. His sense of smell is so great he can locate an individual from miles away. His sight enables him to see great distances and beyond the normal “visible” spectrum — even into mystical realms. His nails grow into short claws (which he has tipped with poison on occasion).

Bio:
Thomas Fireheart is a wealthy Native American businessman, but Thomas has a hidden side to him and the rest of the world. His New Mexico, Indian tribe began a secret program that combined mysticism with controlled breeding in an effort to bring about one perfect warrior to act as their protector. This warrior was called Puma. Puma was a mercenary-for-hire, and the Rose had employed him to assassinate Spider-Man. Puma may have actually succeeded if not for the intervention of the Black Cat. Since then, Puma and Spider-Man have fought many times, and Puma has even fought the Beyonder.

Puma had attacked Spider-Man, believing false charges that Spider-Man was a thief. In order to pay off his debt of honor, Fireheart purchased the Daily Bugle just to improve Spider-Man's public perception. Eventually, the Bugle was sold back to J. Jonah Jameson.
Recently during the superhero "Civil War", Puma registered with the government alongside Black Cat, whom with he is in a relationship.
