Baby Strength
"You just need to trust me. I know what I'm doing. So does Tyler."
―Baby Strength, after Lindsay Kellerman bosses him[src]

Baby Strength (b. March 2019) was born as Daniel Stewart to Irene and Benjamin Stewart. However, during a family reunion in April, their house was struck by lightning, and Force Baby helped him escape. Now on their own, Daniel and Robin continued to go by their alias as they set out on the run in order to find their destiny. Eventually, Baby Strength and Force Baby met the S.M.S.B., and leaped at the chance to help them. Both were major players in the following battle. Afterwards, Baby Intelligence invited them to join the S.M.S.B. Both of them applied, and eagerly participated in several battles, including both attacks on the NoHead base and the fights for Sebiscuits Cardarphen and Rocken Role. He helped the others out of several sticky situations.

After attending Superhero School for several years, Baby Strength continued to train under the S.M.S.B. for many years. He joined the S.M.S.B. in battling the Elite NoHeads, fighting valiantly in the Battle of Bast Castle. Baby Strength also defended Master Intelligence from Centauri, leading to the tragic death of his cousin. Master Intelligence and Baby Strength both felt terrible for their friend’s death, which Baby Strength charged to his Master. At some point after the third attack on the MBH, Baby Strength died of old age.

BackgroundEdit

Physical appearance Edit

Baby Strength was very muscular and shockingly tall for an infant (he was nearly four feet tall, as of 2020). He had gerber-like hair, very similar to that of Baby Intelligence and Sebiscuits Cardarphen. His supersuit was plain but colorful, and had a huge scarlet 's' on it. As a teen, he had grown the least as far as height was concerned.

Personality Edit

In his youth, Baby Strength was often found by many to be somewhat reckless. At the time of the NoHead Wars, his teamwork and resourceful nature helped stop the NoHead forces from building a new base. Known for his great strength, bravery and loyalty, Baby Strength always stuck with the S.M.S.B. However, he was also known for his stubbornness and occasional dislike of adventure.

In addition to the great amount of strength Baby Strength possessed, he was exceptionally skilled with crafting, piloting, and thinking. He was also a master of Monopoly. Ever the mechanic, many of the sublight and hyperdrive systems of the Pinewood Derby were of Baby Strength’s own design. He also had a great understanding of leadership, and usually kept his anger in check.

Powers and abilitiesEdit

It is also notable that he outlived Master Intelligence.

Fencing Edit

Baby Strength was one of the greatest sword duelists of his time. A natural swordsman, Baby Strength’s ability had always been evident even as an orphan. During his training under Baby Intelligence, Baby Strength chose to specialize in Ataru, his relatively advanced skills reinforced by his youth and stamina, which helped compensate for his relative inexperience. While he relied on the acrobatics to flank his opponents, and to facilitate his strong penchant for physical attacks, Baby Strength largely eschewed the more impractical elements of Ataru, such as the open flourishes, favoring more simplistic and direct moves.

In addition to Ataru, Baby Strength also studied Shien, as evidenced by his accurate bullet-deflections and his occasional use for the reversed grip, and Soresu, to compensate for Ataru’s limits. He was also very fond of chaining hand-to-hand combat strikes into his dueling sequences. His degree of skill with this martial art was such that he was able to break the knee of the hulking Gladiator with a well placed kick. However, Baby Strength soon adopted Form III as his primary style instead of Form IV. Nevertheless, Baby Strength had already mastered it. Since the Battle of Palmyra, Baby Strength began studying the defensive Soresu, intending to create a hybrid between it and Ataru. When he fought Sebiscuits the next day, he proved to be one of the only members able to hold him off for more than 15 seconds. Though Soresu eventually became his primary fighting form, he implemented elements of Ataru into his swordplay from time to time.

Ten years of study into Form III resulted in Baby Strength developing an extraordinary amount of proficiency in the form. His tight defense and energy-efficient moves stood him in good stead against masterful gunslingers such as RC-4, or during the chaotic firefights of the First Battle of the NoHead Base. However, Baby Strength’s Soresu proved unable to effectively counter Hell Burnbottom’s skills during their confrontation in 2020. On that occasion, Burnbottom’s elegant combination of Makashi and Brosartt, his elegant strokes and jabs worked away at Baby Strength’s defense; many of Baby Strength’s cutting parries missed Burnbottom’s blade entirely, while Burnbottom’s feints confused the baby and forced him to retreat, ultimately bringing him down. Over the course of the NoHead War, Baby Strength continued to develop his technique. His bullet-deflection skills were further honed to the point where Baby Strength could literally walk unscathed through what were described as hornet-swarms of gunfire, single-handedly deflecting blasts from all directions simultaneously. Thousands of hours of sparring and practice sessions considerably advanced his skills as a duelist as well.

Even unarmed, Baby Strength was a terrifying opponent, evading enemy attacks and working his way inside their defense to physically assault them with his Super strength, which built up with his age. In addition to Soresu, Baby Strength would also master and incorporate elements of Grund and Niman into his fighting style. He also seemed to have been well versed in the art of dual-blade combat, which served him well on several occasions. His mastery of dual-blade combat allowed him to hold his own against the Dark Flame for a time, but ultimately was not enough to stop him from entering the MBH and killing Master Intelligence three hours later. Earlier on, he momentarily used dual combat against Brute Gunray and the Gladiator.

By the end of the war, Baby Strength’s study into Soresu had resulted in absolute mastery of the style. His skill was such that he was considered by Lindsay Kellerman not to simply be a master of Soresu, but to be the master of Soresu.

Powers Edit

  • Super strength: Baby Strength’s primary superpower is his vast superhuman strength. According to Baby Intelligence, Baby Strength’s exact lifting limit is well in excess of sixty-six tons. Even in old age, he is also seen bench-pressing locomotives and throwing boulders at tremendous speeds. Baby Strength also had a proficient level of skill with telekinesis, having learned of it from Baby Intelligence and using it in many battles throughout his long career. His superhumanly strong muscles allow him to move and perform feats of great agility a Fobble could never do without hurting himself or damaging his ligaments. Combined with his jumping ability, Baby Strength is able to perform some astonishing maneuvers not even the finest of athletes could do. Baby Strength is able to withstand tremendous amounts of physical trauma and blunt forces, including multistory falls, the direct impact of a train, and breaking through brick walls. He can be cut, though, with very hard metals and a suitable amount of force. Despite the fact that Baby Strength has a near-superhuman degree of resistance to impacts and pain, things that produce a tremendous blunt force can still hurt him or even pierce his skin. During the skirmish with the Gladiator in 2042, his body could withstand being shot, and also dent the bullet in the process, something he did not know until then.

BiographyEdit

Early Life Edit

Baby Strength was born as Daniel Stewart in March 2019 to Irene and Benjamin Stewart. However, during a family reunion in April, their house was struck by lightning, and Force Baby helped him escape. Now on their own, Daniel and Robin continued to go by their alias as they set out to find their destiny. They were always on the run, stealing groceries and sleeping in public buildings just to survive.

Joining the S.M.S.B.Edit

Eventually, Baby Strength and Force Baby met the S.M.S.B., and leaped at the chance to help them. Both were major players in the following battle, providing cover during the confrontation between the S.M.S.B. and the invading robot forces alongside Baby Intelligence and Paige. It was the orphans who saved the other two from a tank and followed the charge against the enemy. Afterwards, Baby Intelligence invited them to join the S.M.S.B. Although Force Baby seemed eager to apply, Baby Strength initially hesitated. However, Baby Intelligence finally persuaded him to apply.

He practiced all seven forms of sword combat for a month and a half before settling on Soresu.

Second NoHead WarEdit

Baby Strength eagerly participated in several battles, including both attacks on the NoHead base and the fights for Sebiscuits and Rocken Role. He also helped the others out of several sticky situations, even once flanking Sheriff Bladepoint.

Second Battle of Yellowstone Edit

Baby Strength joined the S.M.S.B. in their trip to the NoHead base. On the way, they stopped at the police station. There Baby Strength discovered that the station had been evacuated due to a major battle. He knew of a smaller station from 1990, however, and took the group there. Upon meeting Bladepoint, Baby Intelligence attempted to convince the police to unify in a bid to oust the NoHeads. Bladepoint agreed, and the two uneasy groups put an end to their dispute to concentrate on the common foe. Bladepoint presented his formulated plan to the group, which would consist of him leading a strike team into the NoHead base and defeat the NoHeads, flanked by Baby Strength. At the same time the police army would lead a ground assault to distract the Rocket army. Upon arriving, Baby Strength wished Force Baby luck, then they were ambushed by a NoHead tank. Fortunately, Baby Strength made short work of the tank, disabling 42 Rockets in the process.

Using the secret entrance, Baby Strength and the others engaged the few Rockets guarding the doors. It was Baby Strength’s idea to commence the diversion by firing on an armored tank carrying 83 Rockets. As Baby Strength, Lindsay, Baby Intelligence, and the police set out to find the NoHeads, they were met by Hell Burnbottom, who had been tracking their progress. Bladepoint’s group was forced to go the long way around while the babies stalled the villain. Baby Strength chose to join the police.

The divided team faced heavy resistance as they battled through the following room. Eventually, Baby Strength found the passkeys to unlock blocked portions of the base. Progress was frustratingly slow battling through the halls, but Lewis, one of the police squad, came up with an idea. The group clambered out onto a window sill, and used their ascension guns to bypass a level of the base. The group made their way through the following corridor. Unfortunately, they were swiftly captured by Bratpros and escorted to the other two NoHeads.

However, Bladepoint grabbed a sword and tossed weapons to the others. As he engaged Brute Gunray, Baby Strength helped the others eliminate the Rockets in the room. Mean King was forced to retreat. Though the plan eventually worked, it did not come about without loss, with 143 police being killed. His actions throughout the fight earned him a medal.

Defeating Brute Gunray Edit

Along with Telekinibabe and Lindsay, Baby Strength arrived at the Yellowstone base and, with his sword drawn, followed Lindsay as they searched for the NoHeads. They were confronted by Rockets several times, but managed to decapitate them. In time, Baby Strength’s path was diverted to the chamber where Brute Gunray awaited him. Lindsay and Telekinibabe were shut off by a sword-resistant door.

Baby Strength engaged the Dark Lord in a fierce duel. Brute Gunray proved his superiority in his customized Form V swordplay, however, Baby Strength kept up with his mastery of Form III. Their duel carried them onto a gauntlet, where Baby Strength was able to drive Gunray off. After killing the NoHead, Baby Strength reported to Baby Intelligence, who congratulated him.

Eventually, Baby Strength would join the S.M.S.B. in fighting Sebiscuits, but did not last long against the stronger infant. However, he survived and helped them continue the chase.

AppearancesEdit

The Super Babies: Prequel III: The S.M.S.B.Edit

Eventually, Baby Strength and Force Baby met the S.M.S.B., and leaped at the chance to help them. Both were major players in the following battle, providing cover during the confrontation between the S.M.S.B. and the invading robot forces alongside Baby Intelligence and Paige. It was the orphans who saved the other two from a tank and followed the charge against the enemy. Afterwards, Baby Intelligence invited them to join the S.M.S.B. Although Force Baby seemed eager to apply, Baby Strength initially hesitated. However, Baby Intelligence finally persuaded him to apply.

The X-Children: Where Are You Now?Edit

Baby Strength is picked up by Master Intelligence from Superhero School, which he has apparently been attending since he was seven. This was done after Master Intelligence was ambushed by Whammo Fireball and the Lunch Money Bandit. He quickly found himself to be somewhat disdainful of Red X, but eventually accepted her for what she was. He also joined the S.M.S.B. in battling the newly restored NoHeads, and helped Master Intelligence keep a patrol for NoHead-related threats. He also did not take well to Lindsay’s news of Hell Burnbottom’s return. The same year, he made it to the Second Fencing Tournament, and during the event he was defeated by Red X. Recognizing her as the less predictable duelist, he found he respected her after all.

The X-Children: The Return of the VerasectEdit

He later fought in the Battle of Bast Castle. During the sky battle, he was able to keep the skyfighters dispatched by the Elite NoHeads at bay. He fired a missile at a fighter, which blew up its wing and made it spiral to a fiery end. However, he remembered the mission and broke for Bast Castle. However, he was delayed and could not regroup with Master Intelligence for a time. When Red X began to tire, she flew onto the top of his fighter and clung to it as Hell Burnbottom pursued them both. He was forced to break off the chase, allowing Baby Strength to land in the entrance of the castle.

The X-Adults: Endgame: The Latest ThreatEdit

In this book, Baby Strength took part in the Battle of Transylvania. Once in the Hall of Domination, Telekinibabe was drawn to the Orb of Power. Upon his touching it, the group was confronted by Knights of Plague. In the subsequent battle, Baby Strength teamed up with Force Baby. Inside the Death Chamber, Andromeda saw Becca Smith, pursuing her and attempting to talk. However, Baby Strength called to Andromeda and told her to regroup with the others. While the members regrouped, the Knights of Plague swooped down and attacked, capturing everyone and rounding them up before tying them. In his attempts to escape, Baby Strength was blasted with stun beams.

After recovering, Baby Strength quickly used his Super strength to free himself, stealing the keys of his captor, horrified at what the Grand Bomb would do. Seeing this, Red X asked Baby Strength to free her. Baby Strength nodded and did this. Seeing this, the Gladiator immediately launched the bomb, but Red X sacrificed herself, leaping in front of the bomb, destroying it as well as herself. As Lindsay rushed to Red X's side, Baby Strength freed the others and they all reclaimed their weapons. As the battle resumed, Baby Strength realized that his body could withstand being shot, and also dent the bullet in the process.

When Thomas Meyer came to New York, he joined the S.M.S.B. and became Centauri. He and Master Intelligence wanted to find the Arts and use their powers to protect Fobbles and strengthen the government.

A new friend of the S.M.S.B., Ramona Meyer, invited Baby Strength and Force Baby to Transylvania Quarters, which she claimed was her new home. so she could meet them individually, and she served them carrot sticks over the course of their conversation. Baby Strength quickly realized that he had a crush on Ramona, which Force Baby mocked him for, even tripping him once Ramona passed by.

In 2054, the S.M.S.B. learned that the hologram pit was being hidden in the t and i Factory and sought to protect it from being stolen by George, who had been working for the Gladiator and the Knights of Plague. It turned out that Ramona Meyer was actually behind the crime. After the S.M.S.B. entered the t and i factory, they proceeded upstairs in a passage leading directly into the procession lines. After walking the halls for some time, the group chose to ride a boxcar to the hologram pit. However, Baby Strength agreed to catch up, since the boxcar could only fit five people. After the boxcar began down the tracks, Baby Strength somehow got down the tracks and into the Underground Chambers, where he passed a series of Dark vines, which Sebiscuits had just fragmented. Baby Strength's primary superpower, Super strength, became a life-saving asset when the S.M.S.B. came to the third section of the Underground Chambers.

Most of them found themselves unable to bypass the Nundu guarding the chambers by any means. It required the use of incredible strength, prompting Baby Strength to step up. Left with no choice, he viciously brawled with the creature, using his Super strength to a pivotal advantage. Although he defeated the Nundu into a death-like trance, he collapsed from exhaustion and his wounds. The unconscious Baby Strength was picked off from the group, but his actions allowed all the members but Sebiscuits to move on. Ultimately, the S.M.S.B. succeeded in defeating Ramona and protecting the hologram pit.

While Master Intelligence and Centauri were getting ready for their quest, his counterpart Lindsay Kellerman said that he couldn’t leave the other S.M.S.B. members. Later, Centauri began to question the truth about the S.M.S.B., and confronted Master Intelligence about his conflicted thoughts. As they spoke, Master Intelligence guided him to the Fun Room, where Baby Strength was playing with Force Baby. When they arrived, Centauri said he would not change the plan for the other S.M.S.B. members. Baby Strength guided Force Baby away and then intervened in the argument between Thomas and Master Intelligence. He angrily says Thomas is psychopathic and that there is no love in his heart, leading to Master Intelligence agreeing with him and calling off the quest altogether. With that, Centauri loses control and drew his sword and electrocuted Baby Strength. Intelligence comes to his pupil's aid, blasting Thomas into a wall. Centauri speed-glitched back to his opponents and a vicious duel begins, with Baby Strength angrily aiming to kill for several minutes until his back is flashed with a Stun beam and he is rendered unconscious. Master Intelligence was left to contend with Thomas Meyer’s might alone. As Baby Strength began to recover, Force Baby stepped out and tried to help his cousin, but a blast of lightning hit Force Baby, killing him. Seeing this, Baby Strength got to his feet and ran over to Force Baby’s corpse and cried in grief.

Baby Strength blamed Master Intelligence for Force Baby's death, going as far as to physically assault his Master at their friend's funeral and actually breaking Master Intelligence's nose.

RelationshipsEdit

FamilyEdit

Force BabyEdit

Force Baby was Baby Strength's cousin, and the two held each other in high regard. Not only were they constantly there for each other, but until the Battle of Palmyra, they were all the other had. At this point, the two were inseparable, constantly on the run stealing groceries and hiding in restricted buildings until they found their place in the S.M.S.B. Force Baby had a tendency to tease Baby Strength. He had no problem telling him (or anyone else) off when he believed his behavior was unreasonable, and he had no issues with embarrassing him in public, as when he openly mocked him for his crush on Ramona and even tripped him in front of her.

Still, Baby Strength was the only one who could calm him down when he flew into a rage, something even their master could not always accomplish. The two often fed horses together in their free time.

Eventually, Master Intelligence induced Centauri into the S.M.S.B., and Baby Strength stepped in when they began making plans for a worldwide revolution, pointing out that Force Baby was in no state to be dragged along with them. This resulted in a three-way duel between Force Baby's friends and Centauri. Force Baby tried to interfere, and was inadvertently killed by one of them, which devastated Baby Strength and caused an unending rift between him and Master Intelligence. It is unknown who actually fired the attack which led to his death. At Force Baby's funeral, Baby Strength broke his Master's nose and shouted at him that her death was all his fault.

Long after Force Baby's death, Baby Strength kept a photo of him in his pocket.

Baby IntelligenceEdit

Baby Strength found out about Baby Intelligence from the start, and even in poverty and starvation deemed him his “hero.” He first met the S.M.S.B. headmaster when he and Force Baby were hiding in an office and joined them for life, and quickly came to respect Baby Intelligence’s immense power and seemingly infinite wisdom. Although Intelligence was not as close with him as he was with Sebiscuits, he showed great insight into his character very early on.

Thomas MeyerEdit

"You cannot succeed to that end, because you know nothing of what it takes to rule. You lack the power only love can provide. You're weak."
―Baby Strength to Centauri[src]
Baby Strength disliked Centauri immensely, as he was Master Intelligence’s best friend after Red X. While Baby Strength was spending more time alone, Intelligence and Centauri were planning a quest to locate the Sword of Abomination. As the two boys were planning to travel around the world, they also planned to take the S.M.S.B. with them. However, Centauri began to fall to the dark side. When Baby Strength opposed him, Centauri became very angry and assaulted Baby Strength with lightning; Master Intelligence then defended his student and the three boys had a duel, in which Force Baby was killed unintentionally. Centauri escaped and left the city. Baby Strength retained bitter memories towards Centauri for many years after their fateful encounter, and it did not help at all when Centauri, now the Dark Flame, murdered Master Intelligence.

Mr. Stupid NoHead Edit

Mr. Stupid NoHead-0

Mr. Stupid NoHead, his enemy

Baby Strength first learned about Mr. Stupid NoHead, the most dangerous Dark mutant of all time, after reading about him sometime before he became a member of the S.M.S.B. When he joined, he — more or less knowingly — prevented the construction of the Fourth NoHead Base, leaving NoHead in his emergency living quarters.

Later on, he also helped attack said Base, though he failed to deactivate the NoHead Robot Army when Operation: Purge was initiated. This event led Baby Strength to resent NoHead to the extent of an unhealthy bloodlust for the criminal. In 2019, he attempted to strike down NoHead upon seeing him in person, only to be telekinetically hurled away. He later witnessed Baby Intelligence's defeat of Mr. Stupid NoHead in the Second Battle of the NoHead Base.

However, Baby Strength made very little direct contact with Mr. Stupid NoHead, truly seeing him for the first time during the Battle of the Fourth NoHead Base. Despite this, Mr. Stupid NoHead still viewed Baby Strength as a threat.

GobblesEdit

File:Gobbles.jpg

Gobbles was Carol Wilcox's large dog. Baby Strength strongly disliked him, largely due to his perceived antagonistic behavior towards his cousin Force Baby. However, when Carol explained that Gobbles and Force Baby "were only messing with each other", Baby Strength relented and had a rather amusing experience trying to get Gobbles to sniff his hand, only to be licked in the face, which Baby Strength disliked. Still, this event put them on much better terms, though it is probable to say that they will never truly be friends.

AppearancesEdit
