Bio:

The eternally forty-year-old looking Gardner hosts Neumond’s most-watched news program, and his face (in person, on screens, and billboards) is as ubiquitous as rain. While he’s in truth a bit of a dullard, his mellifluous voice, reassuring manner, and unerring sense of public empathy make his news reports a welcome, trusted presence in the homes of most city residents. There’s very little he can offer the heroes in terms of useful information, but earning his public endorsement has a significant, positive effect on how the ordinary (and otherwise intimidated) citizens of Neumond react to the new, strangely-powered heroes in their midst. They have to endure a lot of on-air “What kind of tree would you be?” questions from Gardner to stay in his good graces, but public support for the heroes never wavers so long as they do.
