I like your ideas. Especially the full-body cape.
And now, here's mine:
Age, gender, affiliation:
18-19, male, Lawful (Punchclock) good
He's got blonde hair, pale skin, and irises nearly devoid of color. You could say he's almost albino
, but his skin tone is still close enough to normal that his eyes are the only thing that give him away when he's off the clock. He's well-muscled, if a bit on the scrawny side, and fluctuates between being the second and third-tallest member of his team, depending on how another member uses her powers
. His uniform consists of a white motorcycle helmet with a blue visor, jeans, and generic form-fitting white spandex on his upper body (think Underarmor). His hands are always uncovered, and he dislikes touching other people with his hands.
His powers allow him to absorb thermal energy, "life energy," and, after months of Training from Hell
, electrical energy. After absorbing it, his body converts the energy into beams that can be fired from his hands and, after some more Training from Hell
, the soles of his feet. His powers also allow him to use the extra energy to power his muscles, allowing him to mimic certain superpowers, such as super strength for a short period or super speed over a short distance. However, taking it too far always carries the risk of extreme injury, as he has none of the Required Secondary Powers
to back up the mimicry. Also, while regular humans are far more common than superheroes, supes' with energy-related powers are by far the most common, meaning that there's a high chance of any villain he faces being able to use his powers against him. To get over this hurdle, he's become something of a brawler.
Normally quiet and reserved, he only "comes alive" either in the heat of battle or when relaxing with the rest of his team, especially after a major victory. Because his powers are always somewhat active and cannot be shut out by wearing gloves (they tend to smolder a little), he dislikes formal gatherings because of having to repeatedly refuse handshakes. Because being a superhero in his verse requires servitude to the government to stop supervillains at any cost
, most super-humans undergo extensive genetic modification or transformation into non-super-humans in order to be able to live their own life. Because of the need for some superheroes to defend the country, he was denied entry into the program, but after meeting people who he couldn't hurt simply by touching them (Cole
), they formed their own team
, taking in other super-humans who were denied modification. He's the de facto leader, but Agni
take it upon themselves to make sure it doesn't go to his head.
In this episode, Michael attempts to construct a time machine to escape debt and dinner party obligations.
