NINE ROOSEVELTS AGAINST THE IMPOSSIBLE!
There are nine Roosevelts.
Roosevelt-69: Sickly child with a voracious appetite for knowledge and a keen intellect
Roosevelt-78: Bright-eyed Harvard man, pugilist, scholar and all-around campus swain
Roosevelt-85: Trail-weary buckaroo, rancher, outdoorsman and deputy sheriff
Roosevelt-99: The Colonel, commander of Rough Rider volunteers, soldier and patriot
Roosevelt-06: Diplomat, Nobel Peace Prize winner, President of the United States of America
Roosevelt-10: African adventurer, hunter and owner of “Big Medicine”, the world’s largest rifle
Roosevelt-A: Baron TÃ©odor of Wallachia, vampire and ladies man
Roosevelt-B: Lord of the Dab-Qasar highlands, destroyer of Krodor
Roosevelt-C: Disembodied brain in an armored Tesla robot
Further Roosevelts are possible. Roosevelt-95, New York City Police Commissioner and scourge of the underworld; Roosevelt-D, Reptilian Progressive; Roosevelt-90, obsessive lovesick romantic and Roosevelt-13, explorer, scientist and conqueror of the River of Doubt, are all good possibilities. Feel free to make up your own.
