Tommy Troy is the original character known as the Fly.

OriginEdit

Tommy Troy was adopted by Ben and Abigail March where he discovered they were the guardians of the Fly Ring, which contained the magic of the Fly People.

BiographyEdit

Tommy Troy was once an orphan until the day he was adopted by Ben (also called Ezra) and Abigail March, who attempted to give him a normal life. One night, Tommy explored the March's attic and discovered a ring with a fly symbol on it and inadvertently summoned Turan, a member of a magic race known as the Fly People. Tommy learns that the Fly People once ruled the Earth, fighting magical battles against each other until they did so much magical damage to themselves that they were reduced to what we know as common houseflies today. However, a small number of Fly People survived by travelling to an alternate dimension and waited for a human who was "pure of heart" who would be able to fight crime and greed.

Ben and Abigail revealed that Tommy fit the prophecy and would be given the power to become a superhero named The Fly. By rubbing the ring with the fly symbol and saying "I wish I were the Fly", he would exchange bodies with an entity from another dimension in full costume and could reverse the effect simply by saying his name. With this body gain superpowers resembling those of an insect multiplied to the nth degree. Tommy would go onto protect his hometown, Capital City, well into adulthood.

He was later joined in his crusade by the superheroine Fly Girl.

PowersEdit

When Tommy Troy becomes the Fly, he gains a number of super-powers. At first, he was only aware of four key powers:

Wall Walking - The Fly could stick to solid surfaces and climb them with ease, as well has having the physical strength to hold himself up with little difficulty.

Omnidirection Vision - The Fly was also able to see in every direction due to his fly powers, making it nearly impossible to sneak up on and allowing him to defend against attacks from all directions.

Super Agility - The Fly is also exceptionally agile, much more than when he is in his Tommy Troy form.

Master Escapist - The Fly also has the skills of an escape artist to a supernatural degree.
