EQUIPMENT: Originally, Hourman II used the same Miraclo pills as his father had. Eventually, he began using a version that was less addictive and solely keyed to Tyler’s body. Unfortunately, the process by which the Miraclo was made less addictive also reduced the amount that it enhanced Hourman’s strength [These pills have the same features as the original Miraclo pills except they give Superattributes: Physique 4D (bonus: increased damage vs. inanimate objects) and the willpower roll to resist the addictive Side Effect drops to Very Difficult.). The pills also give Superattributes: Reflexes 5D and Invulnerability 4D. LIMITATIONS: Duration Change (Activated) -2D, Rechargeable (once an hour) -4D, Conditional (pill must be ingested) -1D, Self-Damaging (if another Miraclo pill is used without waiting at least 6 hours after the first one has worn off, or the user is not of the Tyler geneline; Body Points lost in this way are from hero’s base score, not from those gained by the Miraclo)

HISTORY: Rick Tyler is the second superhero known as Hourman. His parents are Rex Tyler, the original Hourman, and Wendi Harris. Like his father, he uses the drug Miraclo to give him powers such as increased strength and durability for exactly one hour. He began his career as a member of Infinity, Inc. before becoming a member of the Justice Society. His wife is Jesse Chambers, who has gone by the superhero names Jesse Quick and Liberty Belle. Matthew Tyler was briefly his successor as Hourman before Rick reclaimed the title.
