Player Name: NPC
APPEARANCE
Hair Color: Blonde
Eye Color: Brown
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 190 lbs
Description:
Thunderbolt wears a special charcoal-black suit with a bright ret belt and 'T' insignium to protect himself from metal objects.
BACKGROUND
Dr. Howie Reeves, a scientist on the staff of Western Power Dynamics, was working on an ultra-high voltage transmission line project at the Yuma experimental MHD hydroelectrical plant when a valve left loosened by a carelss technician released a spray of liquid oxygen. Reeves fell back over the edge of the inspection platform, and landed on a generator just as the current built up to its maximum. He was subjected to an incredible surge of electricity.
The next thing Reeves knew, he was standing back on the inspection platform. Though his clothing had been mostly destroyed, he seemed physically unharmed. But he was not unchanged! As he stood on the platform, sparks began to flicker about his body and arc away into various metal surfaces. Somehow, Reeves had become electrified: in fact, his body was electricity.
Since he was a living thunderbolt, Dr. Reeves decided it was only fitting he take that as his new name. Reveling in the use of his unique abilities, and donning a concealing costume, he razed the Yuma plant. Then he went traveling, systematicly destroying every experimental MHD plant in the country.
Now thoroughly outside the law, Thunderbolt is enjoying his career as a supervillain. He does it more for fun than for the money, and has operated both on his own and with groups.
POWERS/TACTICS
The 'grounding' thing is always foremost on Thunderbolt's mind in combat. For this reason he will attempt to stay in the air and immediately steers clear of any standing water. Thunderbolt's lightning bolt is very effective. So is his punch, which does electrical damage and a bright flash. He needs, however, to recharge his body for about a half hour once a day. Standard house current will do. Metal objects penetrating his defenses to do BODY damage can cause traumatic releases of power and additional injury. His teleportation power only operates along wires or between two conducting objects.
