Description: An attractive looking man with blond hair and bulging muscles. He flies around in a spandex super suit righting wrongs and fighting evil doers. He maxes out many I-Scale abilities including ST and Damage Resistance, and has no D-Scale abilities. In other words, he is a human sized brick.

History: He is an accountant by day, and crime fighter when needed.

Flying Slam: His largest damage attack is done by flying himself into things at high speed. It takes 16 turns to get up to full speed, accelerating at 14 yards per second per second. At his maximum speed he can do 65d damage to himself and the thing he collides with. This is an average of about 230 points of damage. After armor, he would take 180, and then reduce that to 18 after damage reduction (1/10). This would not kill him or knock him unconscious, but it could be a major wound.

Power Punch: Normally he does 3d+3 cr with a punch (Brawling gives +1 / die, and Striking Surface make a punch thrust cr). When using Super-effort, he can punch for 12d+3 cr damage. That’s 45 damage on average, or enough to easily one punch a car so it is inoperable. Damage he can take: A tank round does 6d*25(10) (Average of 525 damage). This would blow past his DR and do 52 damage to him after armor, resulting in taking him to -23 HP (and no HT roll to survive).
