Lucas Hammond IIIAlias/Code-Name:
HeterosexualYour Hero in detailPower Class:
Electromagnetic Spectrum Manipulation – Blitzkrieg is able to generate and manipulate most, if not all forms of energy associated with Electromagnetism, one of the four fundamental forces of the universe. He can “view” these energies like normal people view the world. As he had had a long time to practice with these powers, Blitzkrieg has shown a wide range of uses aside from the obvious metal manipulation that comes with them. Ranging from energy blasts to distorting light, to manipulating metals, even confusing telepaths with “mental static” and causing natural disasters using wide scale magnetic manipulation.
Ferrokinesis – A mainstay of electromagnetism is the manipulation of metallic matter, aka Metal. Blitzkrieg can manipulate all ferrous metals and some non-ferrous ones by directly affecting magnetic fields present in the environment. He’s able to take apart and put together complex machinery in moments, move metals about in a manner similar to telekinesis, and shape them in any way he wishes. This also comes in handy for stopping or redirecting conventional weapons like bullets and missiles.
Flight – By creating a charge that is the opposite of the planet, he can levitate and propel himself via “magnetic flight”. At maximum velocity he can achieve supersonic flight at speeds of up to Mach 2. He rarely needs to go this fast however.
Force Field – By condensing large amounts of electro-magnetic energy around himself in either a form fitting sheath, or bubble, he can erect powerful force fields that can repel most forms of physical and energy attacks. This force field can be expanded to protect others, or be used as a form of containment by surrounding an enemy with it.
Organic Manipulation – By exercising control over the ever present flow of iron in the human body, Blitzkrieg can achieve a number of effects on said person or people in question. He can force unconsciousness, increase the flow of iron to cause an aneurysm, even alter thought processes and the way a person sees the environment around them. He is also able to control people directly, moving them like puppets.
EM Senses – Blitzkrieg can shift his perception to see the world as shifting patterns of energy. Utilizing this unique form of sight, he can see power sources, stress points in structures; he can even see the bio-electric auras that human bodies generate.
Bio-Molecular Supercharge – Blitzkrieg can flood his cellular makeup with raw electromagnetic energy. This “supercharge” increases his strength to tremendous levels for short amounts of time, allowing him to lift and hit with somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 tons of force.
Energy Discharge – By directing energy along his body’s currents, Blitzkrieg can expel several forms of volatile energy along the EM Spectrum. This includes basic blasts of electricity, EM Pulses, intense heat, concussive blasts of force and other forms of EM energy.
Energy Leeching – All modern power sources generate electricity, and using his powers, Blitzkrieg can drain that energy to bolster his own reserves. He can even drain the bio energy from people if he absolutely needs to. The amount he gets of course is directly dependant on how large the energy source is, and how long he gets with it. This process increases his natural healing by a moderate amount. Not enough to be considered a healing factor, but enough that it is noticeable when his injuries heal faster than normal.Abilities:
Having been trained by the government for nearly a decade, Lucas possesses a number of abilities. Firstly, he knows several forms of close quarters melee combat; mainly Krav Maga, Military CQC and Defendu. He’s also highly proficient with firearms when he decides to use them, going so far as to gain top honors in marksmanship classes. He is highly trained in reconnaissance and real world tactics as well. He is charismatic and a very capable leader; having had his own squad under his command at one point. He also speaks a number of different languages due to his time in the military.Weaknesses:
Blitzkrieg wields one of the most powerful forces in existence, but while he possesses the powers of something akin to a God, he is still a mortal man. He needs to drink, he needs to eat, he needs to sleep. Without the basics of human survival, he will die. There’s also the fact that he can be taken by surprise, and if he is, he can be injured and killed like a normal person.
All of his abilities run on his bodies store of energy; if that’s depleted, not only will his powers cease to work correctly if at all, he’ll be physically drained as well. This will result in sluggish and lethargic actions, slowed mental capacity and other detrimental physical effects that leave him vulnerable and at risk. At maximum power output, Blitzkrieg can use his powers for up to an hour and a half at most. At which time his energy will drop to critical levels and leave him a shell of his former self.
If he ever gets to this point, he’ll need to retreat or find some power source to “jump start” himself, otherwise he will be in trouble. If he tries to use his powers after this point, it will put strain on his body and could cause severe, possible permanent injury. If his powers are drained, he will naturally recharge to full power in around 12 hours; during that 12 hour period he will essentially be human, with only negligible usage of his powers. For example, he may be able to stop a pistol round with a force field, but any more than that would be a stretch. His weaknesses go beyond physical as well. Lucas is a prideful man bordering on arrogant. He’s had the best training, he’s incredibly powerful, and he leads the Meta Corps; why wouldn't he? This of course causes things like an inability to accept defeat, unwillingness to listen to the counsel of others, and not knowing when to cut his losses.Look/Appearance: Their backgroundPersonality:
Lucas is militant; he is focused on his aims and goals and lets little else get in the way of that. Friends, family, all of that takes a back seat to keeping the world safe; it's just how he copes with the pressure. He’s a hard man, and not easy to get along with. He commands and demands respect from those he considers equal, and discipline and obedience from his subordinates.
He’s not above listening to sound advice, but chances are unless it’s good enough to make him stop and think about it, he’ll go with his original plans. He doesn’t like failure, from others, and especially not himself. You can only disappoint him so many times before he’ll feel the need to make sure you don’t fail him again. Jake is absolutely, without a doubt, ruthless. He has no qualms with harming men or women, making and going through with threats against people to further his goals. He doesn’t like it, but he has to make the hard choices others won’t if things are going to change. He’s a fighter, and even if he’s losing, he will refuse to accept defeat until it’s evident that the conflict is hopeless. He can be friendly, he can be nice. It’s rare to see that because he’s so focused on the mission, but the capability is still there…somewhere.History:
The infant who would grow up to become Blitzkrieg shocked everyone when he came onto the scene. He was born to Meek parents, so it was assumed he would have no powers either. That was proven false when 12 hours after his birth, baby Lucas caused an electrical surge that killed power for three blocks. Thankfully, buildings of value like police stations and hospitals had been upgraded to handle metahuman activity.
The backup generators kicked in almost immediately, but it was clear from the heat scarring on the floor and in his crib that Lucas was the cause. Due to the extreme power he displayed from that instant, Lucas' family was visited by the government. He could be incredibly dangerous as an infant couldn't be expected to stay awake for more than a few hours, much less control that much power. With his parents consent, the government built a special home where the Hammond family could live, but was able able to negate Lucas' abilities if needed.
And of course they kept an eye on the boy, performing a few tests here and there. A special Government adviser visited his family when he turned eight, explaining that Lucas needed to be trained as quickly as possible in the use of his abilities. His parents agreed, and so he started his training. Eight years he was given the best instruction possible given that there were relatively few people in the world who even came close to fully understanding the scope of his abilities or how to use them to their fullest potential.
By the time he was 18, he was practically a finely tuned machine who only wanted to do good and make his parents proud. He joined the Meta Corps and rapidly worked his way into the leadership position. He was promoted to leader when Manchester, leader of the Corps for the previous decade was seriously wounded in battle.
He seemed to be built for it, and his powers as well as training made him a perfect leader for the Meta Corps. It was supposed to be temporary, but after Manchester healed, the old man realized he was ready for a rest. He formally passed leadership over to Blitzkrieg with his blessing. Blitzkrieg has been dutifully leading the Corps and keeping the world safe from threats stemming from home as well as beyond. Recently he's been given the honor of being one of the judges for the Hero Project.Physical description/Other pictures:
Lucas is a very large, very intimidating man. He stands at 6'6, and weighs 240lbs, with 90 something percent of that being muscle. Aside from being able to frighten people just by standing there, he's a handsome guy. He has a killer smile and likes to keep his head shaved, which the women go wild over. Because he's in the spotlight so often, he always keeps his goatee perfectly trimmed. On the rare chance that you see him out in his civvie's, he looks like pretty much any other person. He tends to wear comfortable clothing like jeans and t-shirts, but he's very used to wearing suits and dress wear(he gets rewards all the time).OtherConnections:
