  1. OOC for this. @Tiffany Korta let's see some initiative!
  2. May 17th, 2021 Early Afternoon The Lab Voltage entered the room, and took a breath. A small crew of drones was busily flying about the room, dropping off pitchers of water and glasses. In addition, each seat had a tablet. He had sent word to Miss A that he was coming up with plans to get rid of the Doomforge in Kingston. She had agreed. He also sent word to the Atoms, in case they had any ideas. They sent their newest ally, Rocket, who would represent them in the discussion. He had plans to expand the scope of the discussion, and then the collective efforts to get rid of it, once the initial discussions were well underway. If he had too many voices in the early phases of the discussion, it might make it harder to establish. He took a deep breath. "I'm ready." He said over the comm.
  3. ROCKET Atomic Tower, Midtown, Freedom City Early March 2021 The Atomic Tower towered in the Freedom City skyline. After its recent expansion, it seemed almost like it stretched into the clouds, which it just might do. A modern marvel of super science, it held the newly opened Atom Academy, the Atom Family's newest gift to the city, inviting scientists, explorers, heroes and just curious regular people to join, to explore everything and anything! Jay was late. Of course he was late. You'd think having super speed would have helped with that, but no. It just meant he had more time to do a ton of things and forget about appointments. He was a streak of black and grey moving through the city, running and rushing past everything. Black pants, running shoes, a grey jacket, currently hanging open to reveal his favorite white T-Shirt with a big black rocket on the front until. He finally came to a stop right in front of Atomic Tower, a gust of wind catching up to him, his blonde hair a mess from the run as he stumbled a step or two to regain his footing and almost tumbled into the woman that was standing there before catching himself and moving around her in the blink of an eye. "Sorry, sorry! Stopping's not always easy!"
  4. Gather Information DC10: Rocket debuted in late 2019. He was seen occasionally in 2020, being officially introduced to the world by Johnny Rocket II in May of that year. He has joined the Atom Academy as one of the initial members in early 2021. DC15: Rocket's real name is Jason 'Jay' Jacob Wade, the nephew of Johnny Rocket II and great-grandchild of Johnny Rocket I. He has been living with his uncles since 2010. DC20: Rocket's father is David Ross, the villainous Speed Freak, one of Johnny Rocket II's recurring foes. He is currently incarcerated. DC25: Rocket's mother was briefly drugged by his father and aided him in his crimes. Since she was saved in 2010 she has remained in rehabilitation since then. Rocket doesn't like to talk about it. Knowledge: Popular Culture DC10: Like his uncle, Rocket actively stands up for LBGT+ rights. DC15: Rocket is an inventor and would-be scientist. He's not just using his speed for heroics, but advanced inventions as well. DC20: Who is the fastest speedster? Not Rocket, but he might just be faster than his uncle Johnny! Knowledge: Physical Sciences DC15: Johnny Rocket I's powers came from being soaked in experimental rocket fuel, which was somehow passed on to his grandchild Johnny Rocket II and great-grandchild Rocket. DC20: Rocket's speed is not quite physics breaking, but they don't seem to quite follow the regular rules of physics either! It's weird!

  7. ROCKET Power Level: 12 Effective Power Level: 10 Power Points: 180/191PP Unspent Power Points: 11 Trade-Offs: DEF+5/TOU-5, No Offensive trade-off In Brief: The nephew of Johnny Rocket II races unto the scene as the Super Scientific Rocket! Catchphrase: "Let's rocket!" Theme: Yellow Line - REDLINE OST Alternate Identity: Jason "Jay" Jacob Wade Birthplace: Freedom City Residence: Atomic Tower, Freedom City Base of Operations: Atomic Tower, Freedom City Occupation: Adventurer, Student/Member at Atom Academy Affiliations: Atom Academy, Johnny Rocket II Family: Jillian "Jill" Wade (Mother, unemployed nurse, born 1978), David Ross (aka Speed Freak, father, unemployed nurse, born 1977. Currently serving time in prison), John "Johnny" Wade II (aka Johnny Rocket II, uncle, professional super hero, born 1982), Chris Penny (John's husband, paramedic, born 1981), Jacob "Jake" Wade (Grandfather, born 1954), John "Johnny" Wade I (aka Johnny Rocket I, maternal great-grandfather, deceased) DESCRIPTION Age: DoB: 1998, August 6th Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5’9’’ Weight: 160 lbs. Eyes: Blonde Hair: Blue Jay stands at 5'9'' and weighs 160 lbs, with a slim runner's physique. He has long since given up on trying to tame his blonde hair, which will invariably be a mess after he has moved at super speed. Jay prefers shorts and t-shirts, clothes tight enough that they won't restrict him when he's running. He almost always wears running shoes. At Atom Academy, he wears the stand blue, black and white uniform, with blue pants and white boots and gloves with black trim, a white belt with an Atom logo, and blue shirt with black left arm and side, with the tri-colored Atom logo in a white circle on the left side of his chest, divided equally between the blue and black parts of the uniform. On Jay's uniform, the logo have been altered slightly, adding a black rocket between the red, yellow and blue rings of the Atom logo. He wears a pair of pale blue googles that feed him information and acts as a communicator. HISTORY Jason Jake Wade was part of a heroic legacy even before he was born. While father David Ross was, as he would often say himself, a nobody, his mother Jill was the granddaughter of the original Johnny Rocket and the sister of the second Johnny Rocket. While never exhibiting any powers herself, Jill would often tell Jay stories of his heroic relatives, of their exploits and victories. Jay practically grew to worship his great-grandfather and uncle, and he would always look forward to their visits. Uncle Johnny was soon his favorite person in the world. Jay was a bright kid. Maybe a bit too bright. He was several grades ahead in school at the least, studying advanced topics even as a child. David, always having had difficulty connecting with his son, started spending less and less time at home. He would be gone for days, further straining his relationship not just with Jay, but with his girlfriend Jill. Eventually, Jill disappeared along with David. Jay was taken in by uncle Johnny and his boyfriend Chris while they searched for his missing parents. Months later, as Johnny fought one of his recurring foes, a speedster that called himself the Speed Freak. Always able to escape, Speed Freak had brought a super fast woman to help him as he and Johnny had clashed several times over the past few months. Finally, Johnny won and unmasked Speed Freak and his accomplice... and found David and Jill! As they soon learned, David had grown to resent at first Johnny and the rest of the Wade family, and later his own son. He had used Zoom to become fast enough to fight Johnny for years. Finally reaching his break points months earlier, he had kidnapped Jill and drugged her into a state where she would help him in his fights against Johnny. In his delusions, he believed that he was saving Jill from her brother and their evil child. David was sent to prison, while Jill, damaged in both body and mind from the ordeal, were given all the help that Johnny's considerable resources could provide. With David behinds bars and Jill unable to take care of Jay, uncle Johnny was appointed as his official guardian. Jay was happy with Johnny and Chris, who made sure he could visit his mother as often as possible. Any visit to his father ended in failure, until they, at last, agreed to stop. Johnny and Chris' nurtured Jay to learn all that he could, helping him grow into a bright young man well on his way to a promising academic career. He had his pick of colleges, but decided to take his time to decide. Near the end of 2019, David escaped, rampaging across the world to find Jill. Johnny sought to stop him, and they finally clashed outside Johnny's home in Freedom City. Seeing his father and uncle fighting triggered something in Jay. Suddenly, he moved as fast as Johnny, if not even faster! The powers inherited from the first Johnny Rocket might have skipped Jay's mother, but soon he was moving at rocket speed! Together, they defeated David, sending him back behind bars. Jay spent most of 2020 learning how to control his speed from Johnny. He took name Rocket, continuing the family tradition. Near the end of year he received an invitation to attend the soon-to-open Atom Academy. PERSONALITY & MOTIVATION Despite the whole situation with his parents, Jay is a generally happy, if slightly awkward, young man. He is highly intelligent, even considered gifted. He is naturally curious, though also cautious. Despite the stereotype for speedsters, he is not a "run in without a plan" type, and instead likes to take his time. Of course, for Jay that still means moving in much quicker than almost anyone else. Since joining Atom Academy he has found a love of exploration. He will often spend his private time exploring across the world or learning new subjects. Jay is not content to simply use his powers as they are, instead being determined to explore the full extent of what he can do and how. Jay has developed a habit of pushing bad thoughts away rather than deal with them, if at all possible, and as such he has a lot unresolved feelings about his father and the things he did as Speed Freak, including what he put Jay's mother through. Despite it all, he has some good memories of his father, leaving him rather conflicted. He makes sure to visit his mother whenever possible. POWERS & TACTICS All of Jay's powers revolves around speed and how he uses it. He rarely stands still, using everything he can to try to end a conflict. Jay tends to be creative in the use of his powers, finding new uses or utilizing his surroundings and technology to aid him, such as by using high tech tools to entrap his targets at incredible speeds, or simply moving debris on top of them to trap them, or using his speed to generate wind, fire or static electricity. Jay is curious, and likes to learn more about enemies he fights: Why they do what they do, how they do it, and how he can help them. He will rarely go all out and attack just to end a fight quickly, unless civilians somehow end up in danger. POWER DESCRIPTIONS Jay has inherited his great-grandfather's super speed, seemingly passed down as a genetic ability in the Wade family, as shown by Jay's uncle Johnny's powers. Though his great-grandfather gained his powers when he was splashed with experimental rocket fuel, Jay believes there might be more to it, though he has found little evidence of his theory. Jay is, to put it simply, able to move at super speed. His his body, his thoughts, his reflexes, everything happens faster, while not affecting his aging. While he needs to eat and drink more than a normal man, it is nowhere near the levels that would be expected for his abilities. By moving fast enough, Jay can run on walls or water, vibrate through walls or move so fast that he can't be seen. He is able to quickly use his momentum and relative speeds to hit with incredible force, build up static electricity to throw lightning, create fire or powerful gusts of wind. COMPLICATIONS Jay Rocket: Jay doesn't have a secret identity. With his uncle's identity being public, it wouldn't exactly be difficult for the press to figure him out, so he simply didn't bother. If Jay's lack of a secret identity complicates a situation, such as him turned away due to being a known hero, being more easily recognized or having friends and loved ones targeted by villains, the GM can award him a Hero Point. Not Johnny Rocket: Jay is well aware that he will probably always be in his great-grandfather and uncle's shadow. While he loves his uncle dearly, this also means that a lot of people expect him to be just like his uncle and great-grandfather when they started out as heroes, an impulsive hothead often in over his head. While Jay doesn't resent his predecessors for this, he might react harshly if others bring this up. If Jay's reaction to being compared to his predecessors complicates a situation, the GM can award him a Hero Point. Rocket's Rogues: While Jay has had little time to make enemies of his own, enemies of his uncle Johnny, or even particularly long-lived foes of his great-grandfather, might try to attack him for his predecessor's action. His own father, who goes by Speed Freak, might even seek him out to make him pay for his perceived slights. Since Jay joined the Atom Academy, he has only added more potential enemies, potentially becoming the target of the Atom Family's enemies. The GM can award Jay a Hero Point if his presence in a thread might bring unwanted complication if a potential foe seeks him out, further complicating a situation. Speed Freak: Jay has some very conflicted feelings about his father, who eventually turned to villainy and forced his mother into the same, requiring her to stay in a care center even almost a decade later. The GM can award Jay a Hero Point if any powers or scenes uses Jay's feelings of his father's, potentially making Jay automatically fail against the effect. Too Fast: Despite his apparent mastery of his speed, Jay is still learning how to use his powers, and he likes to experiment with them. Not everything he does is going to work. The GM can award Jay a Hero Point if they make one of his creative uses of the Variable Descriptor from the Rocket Speed Array backfire or just not work, or if his speed simple proves to be too much in a given situation. Why's and How's: Rocket is not just interested in fighting bad guys. He wants to know why and how. Why do the bad guy attack people? Can they talk him out of it and get him to stop? How does the super science gun works? Can they take it apart and use it for good? The GM can give Jay a reason to not just attack, but study an enemy, giving him pause for long enough to cause potential complications, giving him a Hero Point in return.
