Thrilling Tales of Adventure
James "Jim' Black
Old college buddy
Jim Black was a college friend of Alex Cooper. They studied Chemistry together and Jim seemed to balance Alexander’s weirder side and helped him fit in better on campus. The two drifted apart as Alex became more immersed in weird science and his thinking became less conventional. Jim is every bit as intelligent as Alex, just much more in touch with reality. While in college, Jim won a Starkweather Fellows scholarship from Starkweather Industries and was granted an internship with Starkweather just prior to graduation.
The two have crossed paths from time to time and have been cordially friendly, though it is not much more than awkward pleasantries and an occasional drink or coffee together.
