Also Known As : Dave; "the guy with the big mouth"
Powers: Arm cannon that fires energy blasts, mechanical hand, body armor
Skills: Nimble, recognizes plot devices, "un-naive"
Job: Hero-in-training (As a student of C.R.A.S.H.)
Likes: Being a hero, chilling with Belt Boy, video games, sarcasm, himself, breaking the fourth wall
Hates: Bad guys, Belt Boy's naivite, when Titanium Maiden gets back at him for something he said, psychotic computer programs (I'm sure he must have been referring to something he saw in a cartoon or something when he said that...)
Objectives: To become a hero, to guide his naive companion Belt Boy, to provide the world with his unique brand of comic wit
Personality: Witty, smart-alecky (I love how it gives him that "edge"!), trigger-happy, talkative, handsome... oops! So much for an objective biography...! Hee hee!
Cannon may get on some people's nerves, but in the opinion of this computerized avatar, he's the best hunk of hero there is! "Cannon and B.O.N.N.I.E." does have a sort of ring to it, don't you think? Whoops, there I go again!
Anyway, Cannon's got a sense of humor that not everyone appreciates as much as I do. A lot of people say that Cannon's mouth is like his weapon, in that he's always shooting at least one of them off at any given moment. And it is true that he can be a bit harsh on buff-but-vulnerable Titanium Maiden, but I won't hold it against him; that's just his way! Besides, deep down, he cares about his teammates and would do anything to help them. He also likes me a lot, I'm certain. He just likes to play hard to get, if you ask me.
Cannon's been friends with Belt Boy since they were just Dave and Max (respectively), two little kids who always hung out together on the playground. Dave's always been fascinated by Max's inventions. That and the fact that Max was one of his few peers that appreciated his brand of wit have made the two of them the best of friends for a long, long time. Dave lost his hand under circumstances he doesn't like people to talk about, but Max helped him out by building him a prosthetic with realistically articulate fingers. Eventually, that hand would help save their high school when Max rigged it to help defeat a rampaging radioactive rodent. The two of them got recommended to C.R.A.S.H. for their heroism, and took on their new superhero identities.
Belt Boy designed Cannon's namesake weapon, so it's no wonder it packs such a wallop! It's mounted on his right arm, and when it's not in use, a mechanical hand pops up out of the cannon for - well - hand-type purposes (The "cannon" on his left arm is non-functional; it's just there so he looks more symmetrical). His arm cannon isn't lethal to organic life forms (but still hurts a lot); robots and weapons, on the other hand, can be reduced to scrap metal by his powerful blasts.
