aka Major Midas (retired)
The world's first superhero and former leader of the Freedom Force. Cardigan was the end result of a government program that sought to create a super soldier. While he was being administered the super soldier serum, the facility was struck by lightning, turning Cardigan into Major Midas (Dale spilling hot chocolate on the machine certainly didn't help). Marc Animus later built him a solar-powered rocket launcher during one his famous alcoholic episodes - everyone is still trying to figure out how that even works. Especially Bill Watergate.
Cardigan has since married a former Miss America and settled down into family life, but he was never prepared for what that actually meant. Now a stay-at-home father, he spends most of his time being yelled at by the family bread-winner, his supermodel/actress/singer wife, since none of his superpowers serve any practical use in a domestic setting. He is often caught trying to fit into his old costume, whereupon he is promptly berated for the dishes not having been done.
Cardigan secretly uses his superpowers to boost his son's popularity at school, since his son has not inherited any of his abilities. Cardigan also has a 30/60 share in 'Miss America's Major Meals' family restaurant franchise ("We've got the Midas touch!") - the 60 belonging to his wife.
