- ―Teddy Bomber
Ted Bower, more commonly known as the "Teddy Bomber" is an activist who uses explosive bears to destroy what he views as symbols of capitalism.
Bower is a middle aged man of average height, with a slightly seedy build. He has a full head of hair and beard, both turning grey as he approaches middle age.
In order to facilitate his bombing practices, Bower often wears disguises that fit the locations he is bombing. For his first target, he dons a security guard outfit, allowing him to move about the building without being questioned. The next target happens to be hosting a costume party, so Bower wears a fitting costume: a large teddy bear suit. While confronting Spike and Andy at City Hall, he wears normal clothes; a shirt and light jacket with shorts and boots.
Bower is also always seen wearing at least one watch on his wrist, which doubles as a remote for his explosives.
Bower views himself as an activist, trying to warn the public about the dangers of unchecked capitalism. He sees the tallest skyscrapers of Mars as symbols of these capitalistic dangers, and has resolved to destroy them, starting with the tallest.
Despite claiming to be working for political ideals, the root of Bower's psyche is a desperate need for people to acknowledge both him and what he says. As the feud between Spike and Andy escalates, Bower becomes increasingly frustrated by their indifference to his mission. Every time he attempts to explain his goals, he is interrupted before he can finish. Bower even resorts to sending a letter directly to the hosts of Big Shot, the bounty hunter informational TV show. Even this message is cut off when the show runs out of time.
Fed up with being ignored, Bower arranges a final explosion at City Hall in an attempt to eliminate both Spike and Andy. This is an abandonment of one of his main ideals, having stated previously that he has never attempted to target human lives. His plan shows the effect that Spike and Andy's indifference has had on him, and how deeply he hates being ignored.
As a bomber, Bower is highly skilled in making explosives. His bears are relatively small but can create huge explosions, enough to create significant structural damage to large buildings. He also has skill with electronics, utilizing custom remote detonators in his bears, as well as hacking the elevator used to trap Spike and Andy at City Hall.
Bower is first observed placing one of his explosive bears on the observation deck of one of the tallest buildings on Mars. As he is making his way towards the exit of the building, he is stopped by Spike, who has rendered his bear useless. Just before being arrested, Andy crashes into the scene, allowing Bower to escape and detonate two remaining bombs. This causes a major portion of the building to collapse.
The next target is another high rise building, this one playing host to a high class costume party. Bower dons a large teddy bear outfit as a disguise and plants his bombs. Before being able to carry out his plan, Spike and Jet are able to track down Bower using the ignition pin from one of the previous bombs. Once again, Andy interrupts and ruins a chance at an arrest. While Spike, Jet, and Andy are feuding, Bower becomes agitated that he can't explain his reason for his bombings. He detonates his bombs after loudly proclaiming that he hates being ignored. After escaping to the parking garage, Bower takes off in his car with Andy at his heels. Driving wildly through the streets of Mars, he eventually crashes into a street vendor. Looking back, Bower is surprised to see that Andy has completely forgotten about him, instead chasing Spike in his mono-racer.
Fed up with being laughed at and ignored, Bower sends a message directly to the Big Shot hosts. He claims to be planning one final bombing that will be the end of both Spike and Andy.
The final target is City Hall, with bombs specifically placed to take out the two feuding bounty hunters and destroy City Hall in the process. After witnessing what he thinks are Spike and Andy's last moments, Bower is easily knocked out by Faye, who turns him in for the bounty. In a police van on the way to prison, Bower is finally able to explain his true purpose to a single police guard. The moment is ruined by the appearance of Andy in his new samurai character, and Bower despairs that all his work has been in vain.
The Teddy Bomber is most likely modeled after real life bomber Ted Kaczynski, also known as the "Unabomber".
