Stomp - The Steroid Stampeder
Evan "Almighty" Tombs was an up and coming boxer. He had the skills and he had the talent, but for him that wasn't enough. Driven to be the best he would do anything to get ahead including shady deals, cheep shots and other criminal activities. One of his more inventive cheats was the use of athletic enhancement drugs. Everyday he would literally pump gallons of them through his system, while always keeping an eye out for anything new. It was then he met a shady character, who referred to himself as "The Dealer" who was ready to offer him and him alone the one thing that could make all his dreams come true. The drug he was pushing was a rare mixture of Elephant DNA guaranteed to increase his strength, speed, and endurance far beyond any mortal man. For the next few weeks he lived off the new drug mixed with hours of training, and surely enough he began seeing a difference. He began packing on the weight and muscle while being able to tank any hits by the best boxers in the ring!
Unfortunately, what he failed to notice was his anger was slowly getting out of control, as well as his dependency on the drug. With every dose he took he wanted more, so one late night after buying some from "The Dealer" he followed him back to his home. With the use of his enhanced strength, he burst down the door, ran in, and began rough housing him for more of the drug. In fear for his life "The Dealer"quickly gave him all he had left. It was at that point Evan made a decision that would change his life forever! Against all warning, he injected every last drop into his veins., for what he thought would be the rush of his life.
But instead of the spike of adrenaline he was expecting, his body began to stretch and bubble. Soon a pair of ivory tusks protruded from under his chin, while at the same time a trunk grew between them. Next he grew over three inches taller while his body packed on muscles. Finally his skin broke out in thick patches of gray hide until he now resembled the perfect crossing between man and Elephant. He was more powerful than he ever dreamed of. In desperate need for more he grabbed "The Dealer" by his neck in order to threaten him, but instead crushed his wind pipe to dust, due to his newly over enhanced strength. In fear for his life he ran off into the night eventually making it to his apartment only a block away. It was there he began to calm down as well as clearing his thoughts, hoping he had out run the crime, only to notice his Elephant hide was fading away. Fearing the loss of his power, he ran to the bathroom in need for any of his other performance enhancements drugs, only to notice his tusk were reappearing. In time he learned, not only could he control the transformation, but the level of it's intensity. Because of this he vowed he would no longer be just average Evan Tombs, but instead the Steroid Stampeder.....STOMP!
