Brian is incredibly brave. He will throw himself into danger for other people and to defeat evil-doers. Sometimes this is to his detriment, however. He is not foolish, though. He understands he is not immortal.

Brian wants to help people. He is not a warrior, but a protector. He takes his role very seriously, and wants to lift people up.

Energy Conduit:
His powers come from interdimensional energies focused around the UK in the different dimensions, as well as the Otherworld. Without the suit, the power grows weaker the further from the UK you get. While wearing the costume to harness the energies, he has the following abilities:

Strength: He is able to lift around 90 tons. He is very, very strong.

Stamina: He builds up less fatigue toxins. While wearing the costume he can go at peak exertion for up to 24 hours before he begins to fatigue.

Durability: He is surrounded by an invisible forcefield that makes him incredibly resistant to physical damage. He can sustain bazooka shells and superhuman punches. Repeated blows from a powerful enough source will weaken and eventually shatter the force field.

Agility: His balance and grace far exceeds what is possible by a human being.

Reflexes: He has the reflexes of a maximum peak human athlete.

Senses: He has improved senses while in the suit, and he can focus to increase them further. He can zoom in on something far away, or listen to a conversation on the other side of a building. His taste and smell and touch can also be enhanced.

Flight: While wearing the suit he is able to fly around 770 miles per hour, breaking the speed of sound.

He loves to read. He can quote some of the classics, and knows a lot about history, anthropology, art history and similar.

Brian is a very skilled combatant. He knows various combat techniques and styles, though he tends to focus on a combination of boxing with a few other things. He can go toe-to-toe with some skilled fighters, even without his suit.

Brian is an absolute genius. He can understand things that are very complicated, and break things down without issue. He memorizes and takes in new information at an astonishing rate.

He has a Masters in Physics and another in Engineering, and he is currently attending Gotham University for his PhD in Physics.

Brian knows how to accord himself in society. He can get along with people and react with proper etiquette and decorum. He has a harder time in more street-level scenarious, but he can push himself to try and fit in.

The Braddock family is old money. He is a Lord, and his money is tied to the vast wealth of the family. Most of the money is tied up in credit, bonds, investments and material possessions and property and such, but he can call on enough money to generally buy what he wants or do what he wants.

He has access to the family castle back in Essex, which is fully maintained while he is away. It is a lovely old castle, and he sometimes finds himself returning there for holidays.

Hellfire Club:
He is a full member of the Hellfire Club, as his family has held membership for a long, long time. He has only attended a few events, but is interested in getting more involved with the group. The contacts alone are worth it.

Brian purchased an old mansion in Gotham. It belonged to another old money family who fell on hard times (And eventual supervillainy), and he was able to pick it up at surprising cost due to it. It's a gorgeous 18th century estate that dates back to the original days of Gotham. It is cliffside and sprawling, with many modern additions.

Brian is a British Lord. That comes with all kinds of political and economical benefits, though most of them only really apply in the UK.

He has an amazing sister in Betsy Braddock. They are loving twins, though, like any siblings they sometimes butt heads. Generally, however, they can rely on one another.

Over the years as a superhero he has made a number of enemies, often magical, but sometimes other. Many are happy to take his life, ruin him, steal his power, or do anything else they can to him.

James Jr:
His older brother James Braddock Jr is...a bad man. He is a decade older then the twins, and he always felt distant from them because of it. He has been officially pushed out of the family from his crimes over the years, but that just makes him more dangerous. A dark magic user with various forms of reality manipulation, Monarch is a real thorn in Brian's side.

Only a select few people know that Brian is Captain Britain, and he tries to keep it that way. He may tell people that are very important to him, but he tries to keep it on the down low.

His costume acts as an antenna. The suit only works for him, due to the magical energy it works off of, but he only has access to his powers while wearing it. He can have it on without the mask and it still operates, but it is a bit too notable to wear under clothing. He can usually change into it pretty quickly if he has it with him.
