Alternate Universe Hero figuring out where he belongs in this universe. Big heart and strong hands. Oh, and a cape!
October 1987: Found by the Milton family. Actual date of birth unknown. Celebrates date of discovery. Taken home and raised as one of their very own.
August 1999: Powers begin to show. Parents begin teaching him to hold back and not display them openly if only to protect his identity.
January 2001: Celebrated with his family. It was the actual start of the new Millennium and father told him, "Those with the power to make a difference should make the world better for everyone." and, "Doing the right thing is the duty of all people." Lessons that stuck with Mark from then forth.
August 2005: Began attending the New Troy University of the Arts after graduating from high school. Despite athletic build, majored in Art, and declared a minor in communications.
May 2010: Graduated with a degree in art. Was offered a job with the Cosmopolis Times, in the cartoon department.
March 2012: Worked his way up to become the lead cartoonist for the Times. Began operating in costume as Hyperion.
July 2013: Met Nighthawk while out in costume. Became allies and later true friends.
December 2013: Along with Nightwing, Blur, and Dr. Spectrum, formed the Squadron Supreme, the world's premiere superhero team. Had many adventures.
May 2018: Incursion of extradimensional invaders. Yellow clad soldiers with supertech weapons. Apparently from parallel universe. Squadron Supreme fought them, and the machine that had been holding the portal open between the worlds was damaged, then exploded. After smoke cleared, all invaders.... plus Hyperion, had vanished.
????? 2018: Earth-616, AIM Base, Upstate New York - Implosion of dimensional Portal Device (aka: DPD) killed resaercher who invented it, taking the knowledge of how to build it to his grave with him. Entire incursion team wiped out. Only survivor was Hyperion, a costumed superhuman from the New Universe they were exploring. Tests determined that his body was producing energy at a staggering level, but he was incapacitated by the trip across the worlds. Kept in biological stasis, he was shunted into a chamber where the energy he produced was able to function as a prototype experimental power cell that would never run out. Ended up powering their base.
September 2020: Energy readings spiking, sensors able to pick up readings to lead to an investigation by other heroes. . .
Hyperion is driven to do the right thing whenever he can. His father taught him that with power comes... oh wait, wrong character. When you have the ability to make a difference, you should always choose to help be a force for good. That is his creed and rule for his life.
Hyperion was taught by his father that one does not give up on his ideals just because others do not follow them. IDeals are what make a person a hero. What makes a hero a superhero. And what makes a man worthy.
Hyperion has the mentality of a defender. Given a choice between attacking an enemy, and protecting an ally or even a total stranger, he will protect. Usually by interposing, or grabbing people out of the way. But that is his kneejerk reflex.
Through focused fusion of his cosmic energy, Hyperion is capable of projecting beams of intense radioactive heat from his eyes. They are capable of reaching temperatures far above 12 thousand degrees Fahrenheit at his maximum output. These can cause intense damage through thermal effects, or cause matter to explode from sudden overheating to damage large areas at lesser degrees.
Hyperion's body absorbs Cosmic Radiation, and uses it in a way similar to a Fusion Reaction. This gives him several superhuman abilities.
Regeneration: Eternals have total control over their physiology. As such, Hyperion can heal damage to his body at an incredible rate. Even when unconscious, he can do this. This power also makes his body no longer age at all.
Adaptation: By controlling each cell of his body, Hyperion is virtually immune to any form of toxin or disease, or even damage from oddball forms of radiation or other energy for long term. He has no need of air or food as he sustains himself entirely from the cosmic energy his body runs on.
Under his own power, Hyperion is capable of achieving enough speed to reach escape velocity (which is somewhere around Mach 30). And when in the vacuum of space, he can approach the speed of light.
Hyperion's body is more dense than a normal humn, but the infusion of cosmic radiation into every cell of his body has made those cells amazingly durable. He can withstand nearly any physical damage inflicted upon him. From high power naval gun fire, hyper velocity rail gun impacts, super strong punches, powerful energy beams, high pressure, vacuum, If harmed by intense levels of attacks, he will be able to deal with it for a time. Several minutes to potentially hours before becoming disabled.
Hyperion can see the electromagnetic spectrum. (He can see IR, UV, Radio energy, Radar energy, and using the Atomic Energy, he can see through most materials in a penetrative capacity. He is capable of hearing into ranges the human ear cannot, and can both see and hear targets from miles away.
Superhuman Strength: Hyperion was one of the strongest beings ever seen on his Earth. When fully powered up, he is off most charts in the Strength department.
He is capable of ripping through heavy titanium armor with little effort, and can crush almost anything with his hands this side of Adamantium. His strikes can pulverize the heaviest armor and strike with enough force to damage nearly any target. Even those super invulnerable would still feel it from a single punch.
To note, much of this strength is purely physical in electro-chemical/cosmic means from the actual muscles in his body. But a large portion comes from subconscious manipulation of anti-gravitons and gravitic fields. This allows him to lift ludicrously large objects without them breaking or bending. It also allows him to lift far more weight than his punching strength might normally indicate.
His cosmic energy augmented senses, nerves, and muscles are able to react 100 times faster than an olympic level human athlete.
Hyperion can accelerate himself up to Mach 4 on foot at top speed. It is a good thing that his reflexes are similarly boosted or he might be considered a freight train in a city.
The energized cells of his body can continue to function far longer than a normal human. He does not develop fatigue in the same way as others. His body is capable of maximum exertion for several days before the fatigue poisons build up enough to make him feel the strain.
Hyperion has a degree in art, and has always been good at sketching. He is a skilled artist, a skill that gets better the more it is used.
Hyperion studied with Nighthawk in his world. He is by no means an expert in martial arts, but he learned the basics of how to punch and kick well. The techniques at the very least. So when he does engage in close combat, he has some skill. But more importantly, he knows ways to engage without exploding normal people.
As a part of his communications degree, Hyperion learned the basics of journalism. That is why he was a cartoon artist for a newspaper. He had hoped to get out of the art department eventually.
Just because of the nature of his powers, and the energy he can absorb, Hyperion studied some basics of physics and chemistry so that he would understand what his senses can see, and what his powers can do.
For the record, Hyperion has little to no resources. He does not need to eat or breathe, but he has no home, no friends, no gear. Just his costume and his powers for now.
Yes, it may seem a cheap copy, but Hyperion's powers are severely diminished in the presence of Argonite Radiation. It has not been discerned if this is an interference in his body's ability to channel cosmic radiation, or if he merely -believes- this weakness exists, and because his control over his body is mentally powered, he makes it come true due to that belief.
Just as it can be a strength, his sense of idealism can work against him. Once it is known, then people will assume he will do the hero thing, and be able to manipulate him that way, for example, interrogations. People will just assume he won't follow through melting someone with Atomic Vision or whatnot.
Magic pretty much ignores Hyperion's entire suite of durability powers. It can invade his mind, alter his body, and even kill him. Ouch.
While Hyperion is familiar with life on Earth, it is not his Earth. He does not know anything about Superman, Batman, Thor, or any of the heroes of this Earth. On his Earth, none of that existed. So for the time being, he will be confused or simply ignorant of things most people would take for granted.
People Are Squishy:
Hyperion has learned through bitter experience that he needs to restrain himself in most encounters, lest he kill people by accident. So he rarely cuts loose with his full levels of power. It can be a problem when he encounters someone on his level and doesn't know they are. He will hold back and they will not. This will give them a chance at a quick win.
The flip side of Driven, Hyperion is also stubborn, and once he has decided to do something, it is almost impossible to make him change his mind. For good or ill, this is a thing that people will need to deal with.
