Goldlewis Dickinson is a heavy hitter

Goldlewis drops into Strive as one of the biggest fighters on the roster. The official website entry categorizes him as a Power character, similar to Potemkin’s Power Throw title.

In the reveal trailer, the military officer lugs around his trusty Area 51 coffin as a type of weapon. Goldlewis even uses the coffin’s residing extraterrestrial to deliver some nasty uppercuts.

As for his special moves, Goldlewis Dickinson takes out a Gatling gun for ranged damage, and calls upon an airstrike with a laser emitting from his sunglasses.
