I'm going to say that in a straight fight, yes- Hush no change against a Superman-type. But then again, Hush would never let the situation get to that point. He cheats, and he knows when to just leave.
And just to make it official.Name:
: Kevin CroninPowers: Audiokinesis
- Hush has the ability to sense, create, control, and cancel out sound with his mind. In theory there's little limits to this power, though in practice actually gathering up enough sound to make a power blast strong enough to knock a paragon out of the sky is completely exhausting to the point he'd pass out afterwards.Spy Training
- While not a power per se, Hush has been as about as well trained in spycraft as the CIA is capable of doing.Networking
- Keeping a few friends from his spy days, he has a small network of informants and suppliers just a phonecall away. Including Calculus, a super-intellegent villainous information broker that offers his services as agent/supplier/information hub/legal advisor/health insurance provider/ anything that doesn't involve him actually going out into the field in return for a 10% cut.Weaknesses: Women
. God, he just can't get enough of them. Currently STD free at the moment, but that's mostly because Calculus has a couple mad scientists on call that are more then willing to cure any disease for a fee. Rumor has it he has a complete list of his past sexual conquests somewhere in his possessions, it's over 600 names long, and includes the civilian identities of multiple super-heroines. In his defense, the encounters are always consensual and he almost always uses a condom.
The truth is not quite that macho-impressive. He is a shameless womanizer that is at the moment STD free and Calculus does know scientists that between all of them could cure every STD on the planet- that is true. Hush does keep a complete record but it's only photographic so there's no names or personal information. It is in the triple digits, which is impressive in itself, but it's most certainly not over 600. Finally, he does go out of his way to include women that live in the same area of a super-heroine that look like they could be the civilian identities of the super-heroine- but this is mostly for chuckles as he has no idea if they really were them. Disability
- His sense of hearing is tied to his psychic powers. If he's ever in a situation where he loses his Audiokinesis power he also becomes completely deaf.Physical Stats:
Thanks to his deep spy training, Hush has Olympic Athlete level strength, speed, agility, and stamina. If he competed in the Olympics he probably would not win in any metals, but he'd put in a respectable performance in any and every event he got into. Appearance-wise he's been described as "James Dean, the 50's movie actor one, if Jimmy worked out more". Handsome yes, but not quite handsome enough that the stories about how many sexual partners he's had is believable at a glance. It does however become believable when his looks are used in concert with CIA Seduction and Sedition training.Bio:
Born without many of the inner ear parts needed for hearing and the son of hardcore REO Speedwagon fans, Kevin tried to enjoy his parent's music as well by putting his hand on the speakers and feeling the vibrations. This ability to feel the vibrations soon extended to just being in the same room, then the same floor, then the same building. Completely baffling doctors, it would really get onto certain intelligence circle radar when in a moment of panic he cancelled out all sound within a wing of his school for the deaf when he was 16. Confirmed to be Audiokinetic, Kevin was recruited by a secret branch of the CIA that dealt with optimizing their use of psychics. The branch collapsed after the CO was revealed to be using his psychic assassins on his political opponents as well as genuine threats to the American people, and Kevin went into business for himself with the only real friend he had from the secret CIA branch- a super-intelligent hacker and information broker codenamed Calculus. Ever since then he's been one of the best assassins money can buy- and definitely the best that still calls his parents on weekends.
