WhiteOther distinguishing Features:
The uniform is a form-fitted, embellished pilot's uniform created specifically to withstand high speeds. Usual Style/Clothes:
Altitude dresses in a laid-back manner; his attire typically consists of jeans and a shirt, with a zip-up cotton hoodie. Money isn't really a problem -- but Johnathan doesn't really care about brand names, and he never has the time to go shopping.Health:
Altitude has the strength, speed and stamina of a normal human individual his size and age that undergoes a relaxed physical fitness regimen. He can breathe easily at high altitudes, and can survive flying at speeds in excess of 500 miles per hour.Mental Health:
Altitude has a healthy family life and is generally considered to be outgoing, albeit serious. Sometimes, and for weeks at a time, Altitude nurses a bruised ego when he fails. Though he hasn't been a superhero for very long, he hasn't had a lot of luck during that time.Appearance:
Altitude is a handsome young man with brown hair and brown eyes. He is of medium build and above average height. He has an austere appearance and a stoic air, diminished by a quaint, faint and sincere grin. He looks a lot like his father. POWERS AND ABILITIES:Name:
Altitude can propel his body forward through space at mach speed. Furthermore, he is physically able to withstand environmental conditions at high speeds. His body develops an invisible aerodynamic sheathe that allows Altitude to cut through the air without hindering his speed. His lungs have undergone a biological change, in that they are longer and thicker, and are able to acquire and retain oxygen at superhuman levels. His eyes are also physically stronger, and he is able to see clearly even in flight.Duration:
Altitude has difficulty controlling his flight patterns in tight spaces. He is also highly prone to injury at top speeds.BACKGROUND:Personality:
Altitude is friendly and outgoing. He enjoys being a superhero. Like any superhero his age, he sometimes gets frustrated with all of his responsibilities.Favorite Quote:
"Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return." -- Leonardo da VinciQuirks:
Though he isn't as secretive as he should be regarding his secret identity, Altitude is a naturally secretive person. He exhibits patterns of behavior -- like a pitcher -- to cool him down during his superheroic exploits. Hobbies:
Altitude is your average high school student: he likes baseball, video games, comic books and Western cinema. History:
Johnathan Ayres is the youngest of two children. His father is a corporal in the military, stationed at Selfridge in Harrison, and his mother is an ad executive for one of Michigan's largest firms. Like any other military kid, he moved around a lot and seldom had enough time to make lasting relationships. He never excelled in classes, because he seldom finished his work. Despite all of it, he is considered to be, by American standards, very average. Or at least, as average as a young man who can fly can be.
He doesn't know how it happened, but he began flying in his sleep nearly six months ago. Johnathan remembers having very vivid dreams of flying weeks prior, but he does not think that those dreams manifested his powers. At first, he flew in secrecy. He took on superheroics by accident when he saved a woman from a mugger during a midnight flight. It's difficult to express exactly what he found so appealing about helping people, but he became addicted to being a hero. He began to patrol some of the more dangerous neighborhoods, and he ran into complicated moral situations. In one instance, he was shot in the shoulder. No longer capable of explaining his injuries to his parents, Johnathan came clean. At first, they were reluctant about their son's extracurricular activities, but they ultimately came around. His mother created a dummy corporation that employed the services of her advertising firm to create a working superhero costume, and his father used his military contacts to develop training theories for machineless flight. Altitude kind of feels stupid wearing the outfit.
He has very limited experience actually using his powers for the purpose of crime-fighting, but he has managed to irk a Michigan criminal, Mr. Fallout.
