Professor Kirchner (Creator)
|Real World Information|
The Darkness Exoskeleton was a special contraption created by Professor Kirchner in order to take over the Realm of the Darkness. It was later possessed by the Heart of Darkness, who use it to battle Jackie Estacado.
After getting to the Realm of the Darkness and meeting with Danny Estacado, Kirchner started to steal of his Darkness power for his own use. Secretly in his lab, Kirchner started developing an exoskeleton out of the Darkness. He was planning to use it in order to take over the Darkness version of New Jersey.
The Family Business Edit
When Jackie Estacado reached the Realm of the Darkness and met with Danny, the Heart of Darkness took over the exoskeleton. The Heart is furious that Kirchner is trying to steal its power for himself, but is also impressed by the professors mind. Instead of killing him, the Heart decides to possess Kirchner and use his mind to help it kill Jackie.
With Kirchner under his control, the Darkness exoskeleton attacks Jackie and the two begin to fight. Estacado creates a whip, latches it unto the Darkness exoskeleton and sends a bio-electricity current through it. The Heart of Darkness is impressed, but quickly recovers and proceeds to use the amplified version of this technique on Jackie himself. Incapacitated Jackie is then grabbed by the Darkness exoskeleton, which begins to crush him. Before it can kill Jackie, Danny shoots Kirchner in the eye and kills him. Out of retaliation, the Darkness exoskeleton cuts Danny in half and releases the dead body of Kirchner.
With his dying breath, Danny urges Jackie to kill the Darkness once and for all. Jackie then pulls out the Sun Dagger from his chest and confronts the Darkness exoskeleton. He manages to defeat the creature, which opens a portal right to the Heart of Darkness.
Made entirely out of Darkness, the exoskeleton didn't needed to rely on any modern human technical limitations. The exoskeleton possessed immense strength and durability, able to lift and then proceed to slowly crush empowered Jackie with just one arm. Except for its human victim, the exoskeleton was completely impervious to damage.
Although created by Kirchner, the exoskeleton could easily be taken over by the Darkness. It was also able to possess Kirchner himself and gain access to his mind. With Kirchner mind at its disposal, the exoskeleton could create weapons and powers, while being in the middle of the battle. It could also copy Jackie's powers and then amplify them for more damage.
