Gentlemen and genteel women:

I understand you seek a competent X Ray technician with many skills that I do not possess. But fear not, for despite my medical illiteracy I have a unique ability that few if any humans past or present have acquired. I was involved in a horrific accident while working in the warehouse of a medical supplies firm and my body was bombarded by unrepentant x rays, destroying much of my body and turning me into the masked man you likely know as The Magnificent See Through Man! You see, my body now naturally emits low frequency x rays, giving me the power to see through walls and doors and making my body a terrifying, glowing skeleton, which is why I typically wear a very long lead-lined coat, dark hat and scarf when I patrol the streets of whichever city my adventuring has taken me to. I recall a rather embarrassing moment in London two years ago. A brisk wind, a park full of children... You can imagine the horrified screams of a mob of kids made to glimpse a monstrous, green-haloed skeleton. It was quite a mess!

Anyway, now I'm in Portland, basically unemployable and stuck here for the time being. Fighting crime just doesn't pay like it used to and there are hardly any super villains lurking in high rise buildings or sewer kingdoms here, so, basically, I'm asking if I can help you out. I'm basically an x ray machine, just, you know, living. If you've got anything for me, that's be appreciated.

PS: This, eh, STD portion of the Medical Benefits Package? Is that what I think it is? If so, well, I'll tell you about it later. Let's just say I'm a little paranoid about going to the free clinic. So... There's that.
