Badger (Norbert Sykes)
Real Name: Norbert Sykes
Search for 'Badger (Norbert Sykes)' on Amazon

Master of martial arts and has the ability to talk to animals.

Norbert Sykes is a military veteran who suffers from multiple personality disorder. He has a recorded total of at least 7 distinct personalities, including Max the gay drama critic and Pierre, the murderous psychopath. "The Badger" is just one his personalities; a vigilante who is able to communicate with animals and uses Norbert's incredible martial arts abilities to do good.

One of his quirks involves calling everyone he met "Larry". It is later revealed that "Larry" was the name of his abusive stepfather who, among his other crimes, beat Norbert's dog Leroy to death when Norbert was a child.

He lives with Ham the Weather Wizard (full name: Hamaglystwythbrnxaxlotl), whom he was roomed next to in the local asylum. Ham convinced Norbert to escape with him, and the two set up shop. In a castle. Their psychiatrist, Daisy Fields, became Ham's personal secretary in order to help both, but mainly Norbert. Ham quickly became a highly successful businessman, using his talents to manipulate various stock shares. This allows Norbert to don the mask whenever he feels it is necessary to fight crime, help little old ladies across the street, or to beat the crap out of the guy next door because he spit on his dog. Ham generally keeps Norbert around as a bodyguard. Every once in a while one of the Weather Wizard's summonings gets a bit out of hand, and Badger is called upon to deal with the demonic beastie that has escaped.

In the issue Hexbreaker, Norbert attends a top secret world martial arts contest held by the Yellow Lotus Liu Hu Society. There he meets the American/Vietnamese beauty Mavis Davis, an MD who was also a contestant. Mavis and Norbert fall in love and get married. The only one of his personalities she is afraid of is Pierre. When Max is around she sleeps in another bedroom.

Through the course of his adventures, the Badger and company have taken on demons named Motorhead, bull semen thieves closely resembling The Three Stooges, Ugery ninjas, ex-Nazi transsexual nuns, hordes of Shakespeare quoting imps, and Paul Bunyan. If he hadn't been crazy before, he would have definitely gotten there along the way. As the Badger, Norbert fights litter-bugs, noise-makers in movie theaters, corrupt corporations, and otherworldly demons.

Known Associate: Ham the Weather Wizard, Married to Mavis Davis, Created by Mike Baron
