The Guardians of Danville
Chessmaster is the villainous alter ego of Carl Chesnique.
He takes the form of a massively oversided man, much like a power lifter, and is definitely abnormal in appearence. Whatever process caused the change, also caused him to develop orange-tinged skin.
Aside from the abnormal strength and speed exhibited, he also seems to have a mental control power, compelling others to do his will. There seems to be different levels of this, but details are unknown, aside from seeming able to divert psychic damage from Catherine Hart to his minions. He also exhibited superhuman awareness and reaction times.
Chessmaster exhibits a ferocious ego, and a frightening willingness to put his minions in danger to save his own skin.
