Origin of the ... Midnight Detective?

It’s going to be a long time before I get Zealot to the point where he’s a high-level character to play test to see how this holds up for a high-level character (although I suspect pretty well), and I’m curious anyway… here’s a character you might recognize. We’ll go with the ‘no armor’ standard comics version, instead of an armored version that could show up in movies (for example)… I have to bend the rules as written to give him 11 traits… an exceptional human hero starts with up to 8 + profession (so 9 total).
