The old mechanic that runs “Slim’s Auto Shop” only answers to “Slim”.  There was a time when he went by “H. R. Walker” - everyone just called him “H.R.” back then. But those were simpler times.  H.R. used to run a martial arts school for kids, most of whom never paid for their classes, but about 25 years ago, a group of his students were killed for standing up for themselves, gunned down by drug dealers for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  It wasn’t even mentioned in the papers. No one cared. H.R. closed down the school the next day, telling students, “The only way to stay safe is to not fight back.”
Now, Slim just runs his auto shop, and everyone in the neighborhood knows it’s the best place to get your car fixed. Slim doesn’t use the fancy diagnostic computer like the big shops, but he always gets the cars running better than before, and doesn’t charge much at all. Few people even remember that H.R. ever existed, much less the martial arts school.

However, the pushers and dealers are expanding their territory, and there’s been a rash of criminal activity on Slim’s block. He maintains a policy of “Don’t fight back. Give them what they want.” But his shop assistant, Charlie, has been getting pushed around lately by some unsavory thugs, and “Don’t fight back” won’t protect him for long...

Dark Watch Mr. Fixer

Aliases: Harry Robert Walker

Group Affiliation: Dark Watch
First Appearance: Dark Watch #2

While things deteriorated more and more in Rook City, the heroes who regularly patrolled the failing city grew increasingly concerned about the disappearance of Mr. Fixer. Three of those heroes joined forces: Expatriette, Setback, and NightMist. They worked together to protect Rook City and to investigate the loss of their friend.

What they found, however, was not exactly what they were looking for. They learned of the death of Mr. Fixer at the hand of his old pupil, The Operative, but his corpse had been sent to the fabled Temple of Zhu Long. The three heroes fought their way to that temple, only to be forced to face in combat the very subject of their search. A resurrected Mr. Fixer who knew not the faces or voices of his former allies fought them at the command of the mystical Zhu Long. In the course of the battle, NightMist managed to reconnect Mr. Fixer’s mind to his body, and the four escaped the temple together.

Now, Mr. Fixer fights as part of Dark Watch. There is much unknown about how he returned, and his body seems to be healthier and stronger than before, but he still experiences great, undying rage. He is a harsher combatant than ever before, and the other members of Dark Watch keep their eyes on Mr. Fixer, both concerned for his safety as well as their own.
