This is Backlash, aka Brandon Calhoun (aka Chris Hemsworth). He's an Aussie who came to America for college and got involved in the college basketball world. If not for his powers manifesting when he was around 23, he would have gone on to become a professional player. Instead, Brandon was arrested, taken into custody, trained, and eventually ended up on Alpha Team as Tank #1. His ability involves absorbing the kinetic energy directed at him and using it to change things about himself: a conscious spin on reactive adaptation. These changes are not permanent, and will last only as long as he can absorb enough kinetic energy to sustain them (or he consciously lets an adaptation go to conserve energy).

I've got a couple of holds to put in.

PB: Scott Eastwood
Team/role: Alpha/damage #1
Codename: Blitz
Super speed, kinetic energy conversion, and concussive blasts. His speed falls somewhere between mach 1 and mach 2, haven't decided yet. Kind of a womanizing asshole, but charming about it. Would love to have some exes and ex-flings for him. Already have a love interest in mind for him who will be brought in later. Brother and roommate to Backlash (below) and they make a kick-ass team.

PB: Bridget Regan
Team/role: Foxtrot/TBD
Codename: Reaper
Has the ability to sense the dead and necrokinesis. She's like this but even cooler. I'd love for her to operate the facility's morgue because of her abilities, and to keep some bodies on ice for her to use. Would also love for there to be people creeped out by her. She's kinda borderline to sociopathy and would be a mad scientist if she could, but she does her damnedest to pretend to be normal and sweet and nice and all that, so no one would know the thoughts lurking underneath except maybe a strong telepath.

PB: Natalie Dormer
Team/role: Alpha/handler #1
Codename: N/A
A little bit of a stone cold bitch. Transferred from the CIA (tentatively) a few years ago and has been handling Alpha since then. Prefers to see supers as tools more than people, but I'm open to some of her supers changing that opinion. Would love to get Alphas tank #2, healer, and the other two handlers. Open to lines with other teams, too!

I'd like to place a hold for the following, please!

PB: Phoebe Tonkin
Team/Role: Alpha/Wildcard
Codename: Nocturne
Umbrakinesis, night vision, dimensional transportation. Elia Rousseau, barely-contained hellion and bad girl. She embraces her power over darkness fully, and tends to set off alarms for people with a better set of morals than she has. Her favorite trick is creating small, vicious umbra-minions to attack her enemies, although they can also serve other purposes (surveillance, infiltration, making cocktails.) In a pinch, she can also be useful for extraction, if whoever she's helping is strong enough for a trip through the shadow-dimension she can travel through.

PB: Tom Hardy
Team/Role: Alpha/Damage #4
Codename: Dragon


Marcus can manipulate living fire. He can even redirect flames or will it into different shapes if he sees fit. In fact, the more he works with the element, the more control and manipulation over any type of flame or heat he theoretically has. Even to the point, now mastered, he can even ignite a fire from nothing at the molecular level.

BURNING UP: As a side affect of his primary power, Marcus runs much hotter than the average human. When thermal scanned he clocks at a cool 104 degrees.

FIRE BREATHING: Much like his call sign would imply, like any dragon worth its weight, Marcus can accelerate his own cells to generate an immense heat and then purge it from either his hands, mouth or both. It's a party trick that he can do only so many times as it requires a great deal of physical energy.

Secondaries: TOUGHNESS
Like the power implies, Marcus is made of tougher stuff. He can physically absorb a great deal of damage as his skin is tougher than Kevlar. He feels the hits and best believe it hurts him to the point of irritation but he isn't completely impervious. A mini gun is not Marcus' friend. Nor is an elephant gun.

IMMUNE TO FIRE: Because of his tough skin, Marcus is impervious to fire. The heat of the sun? Likely not. But fire in its natural state on Earth or even focused to be blue hot, Marcus is immune to it.

The user's physical are above natural members of their species in that verse, beyond what can be emulated via natural training and with little to no maintaining. This entails that they are faster, stronger, and overall physically more superior to fellow members of their species, without being obviously supernatural.
