Troll Man is a pediatric internet troll villain, internet safety character, online scoundrel and enemy of the internet safety superhero, Cyber Tyger, for children (K-6). Cyber Tyger and his adversaries, including Troll Man’s profile, were originally conceived in 2011 to educate young children about internet safety and cyber attack prevention. As a Cyborg with digital powers, Troll Man travels through cyberspace cheating, lying and stealing from online users. Once a child opens his iTroll email attachments, they cannot escape unless helped by Cyber Tyger. Troll Man is most dangerous when using his shape shifting powers for online deception.
At present, Troll Man & Cyber Tyger remains as concepts with everything but the last character designs. Once graphic designs of Cyber Tyger, Troll Man and other related characters have been created, they will be ready for online and offline publication. iPredator Inc. plans on offering these characters, at no cost, to elementary schools, parents and primary caregivers. Until iPredator Inc. creates his own website, information about Troll Man can be accessed here at this page, https://www.ipredator.co/troll-man/.

Who is Troll Man?
Troll Man is a pediatric internet troll super villain who is an enemy of Cyber Tyger and online scoundrel to children throughout the world and cyberspace. As a Cyborg with many digital powers, Troll Man travels throughout cyberspace cyberbullying, cheating, lying and stealing from anyone who he targets. Once an online user accidentally or purposely opens one of his iTroll email attachments, the online user cannot escape his devious plans and threats. What makes Troll Man so dangerous is when he uses his shape shifting powers to lie to kids and their parents online.
In cyberspace, Troll Man can turn himself into perfect replicas of his target’s online friends, loved ones and teachers. He can also shape shift into different digital devices and software programs. Although he is stuck in cyberspace and can never leave as Cyber Tyger can, Troll Man wants to rule the earth. To make sure he stays locked online, Cyber Tyger & his cyber savvy legion of kids work hard to prevent his escape. By protecting and teaching other online users about cyberbullying, cybercrime, cyberstalking, internet trolling, cyber harassment, internet addiction and online deception, the Cyber Justice League keeps Troll Man trapped online.
History: Troll Man was born around the same time as the internet was launched. Little is known about Troll Man, his childhood or who is parents are.
Not Troll Man, but Real Internet Trolls
Internet Troll: An Internet Troll is a colloquial expression used to define an online user who uses Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to purposely and actively provoke, defame, anger, tease, flame, or incite other online users. More often than not, the Internet Troll does not know the target recipient(s) of their vitriolic statements and behaviors. Internet Trolls regularly appear in all forms of online mediums ranging from online video gaming gatherings to chatroom and forum discussions. When the Internet Troll’s inflammatory statements and actions do not include a direct or implied physical threat to the target(s), their behavior is categorizes as cyber harassment. If the Troll’s verbal assaults include direct or implied physical threats to their target(s), their actions are then defined as cyberstalking.
Internet Trolling (aka, Cyber Harassment) is the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to harass, control, manipulate, provoke or habitually disparage a child, adult, business or group. Unlike cyberstalking, requiring a direct or indirect physical threat, cyber harassment and internet trolls use ICT as a vehicle for disseminating provocative, inflammatory, graphic or obscene information about a person, group or organization.
Note: Cyber Tyger and Troll Man are internet safety characters that have changed names, histories, appearances and back-stories multiple times since 2011. Initially, Cyber Tyger was a white panther and Troll Man resembled the Joker character from Batman. Until this writer and his associates all agree upon their last presentation best suited for young children, there is a good chance minor changes will be discussed. iPredator Inc.’s goal is to have final vector images by Spring 2015 with public availability for all online users at no cost.
