    Nylor Truggs 
A human from the future who desires to make Earth stronger and a contender on the universal stage.
  • Anti-Villain: He believes himself to be this. His stated goal of using the vast array of superhero/villain Schizo Tech to improve mankind at large? Noble. Basically everything else about him, from his methods of reaching that goal to his general personality? Villain. He does, however, contact OL to warn him about the impending Reach invasion, having concluded from OL's complete absence from any Justice League records that he's a foreigner to this timeline and thus in the greatest position to change things.
  • Berserk Button: Hates supervillian/superhero memorabilia collectors, especially the ones who collect Schizo Tech.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: A wannabe time-travelling supervillain that believes that he get the respect he deserves by improving Earth.

  • Healing Factor: He has nanotech that rebuilds his body if he's hurt.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: He wants to be the one responsible for bringing humanity up on the universal stage.
  • A Million Is a Statistic: Holds this mindset. He feels as long as he kills fewer people than the reach did, the ends justify the means.
  • Not So Similar: Other members of The Team note that his goals - advancing mankind through reverse-engineered supervillain technology, transhumanism, and magic - are pretty similar to the things Paul is trying to do. However, Paul tries to work with the system as much as he can, trying to do things on the up and up and ensuring that he's not completely depended on, while Truggs cheerfully disdains law and morality over a skewed perspective of why Heroes did things the way they did and joins up with a group that has members that didn't think twice about mass murder, genocide, and mind control, and wants to BE the center of all the changes he wants to make on the world instead of simply helping things along like Paul does.
  • Schizo Tech: Uses telepathic disruptors and anachronistic phasing device.
  • Sketchy Successor: Is Sportmaster's replacement in the Light in the Paragon timeline. He's generally not as good as he thinks he is.

  • Time Travel for Fun and Profit: He came back in time for this.

  • No-Sell: Fire from the Silver City won't kill him as it does other unholy things. It'll sting, but he'll live.
