Michael Dore leads an amazing double life. By day, he's the mild mannered, hard working, conscientious worker at the TAB; but by night he turns into the psychotic, over the top, obnoxious SuperHero, Nige. This situation causes Michael a great deal of confusion whenever anything exciting is happening during the normal course of the day. Sometimes, the result of this is all too obvious. You can usually spot Michael at any sporting event as he'll be the person hurling abuse at the unknown person Nige. The most commonly heard Dore-ism is, "Nice One, Nige!"; which is used when a player makes a mistake. It is not unheard of for Michael to create a Dore-ism on the spot though.

Popular Dore-isms include:

"There's a space you can play the ball into between the bowler's ears, Nige."
"You're only good enough to play rugby for England, Nige."
"Doesn't Nige look like a young David Boon?"

Despite supposedly being a SuperHero by night, Michael's alter-ego has so far failed to succeed in fighting any crime other than preventing obviously drunk members of the public from driving away from the Victoria Tavern by removing the engine from parked cars outside this establishment.

Even by day Michael has various superpowers that he can employ in his life. The most commonly used power is that he can find out the answer to any question that he is posed. Try it for yourself!
