A surprisingly lanky teenager, often wears a Green, skintight suit with a pair of yellow gloves, boots, and cape. His skin is deep red and his eyes are all solid blue and glowing. His hair also seems to give off a similar glow.

 

History:
Talos' perfect creation. The first fully artificial lifeform that has always eluded him before then...and a crushing failure as it carried the human qualities of compassion, kindness, and (ew) emotions. Talos forced the creation into hypersleep, where he would be kept for 4 years. During the destruction of the Foundry facilities by Talos he was woke by the destruction of his Hypersleep pod's power source, barely escaping the implosion of the lab. Angered by the fact his "father" had abandoned him to die in hypersleep, Visionary set out to be the exact opposite of what his original intend purpose was. Rather than be a weapon to destroy natural life, he chose to become a champion of life, a hero, a paragon...

 

 

Personality & Motivation:

As mentioned before, Visionary's main motivation in being a superhero is to spite Talos. Despite this Visionary has read up on and observed other heroes, basing much of his personality on the deceased Centurion and other Paragons and Golden/Silver Age heroes, behaving and talking in the most over the top heroic fashion that he could from his observations. Sometimes coming off as a Parody of a superhero because of that. Almost overly friendly, always hopeful, this personality only drops in cases involving Talos.

 

Powers & Tactics:

Flight and Nigh invulnerability makes Visionary a perfect living shield and when it comes to anything involving civilians that is almost his go to. Photon laser vision and super strength makes him the perfect weapon to handle villains and monsters with...

 

Power Descriptions:
Blue-White energy beams for Photon vision, the rest are simple strength affects with no outstanding bonus effects

 

 

Complications:
Daddy Issues: Hatred of Talos sometimes clouds his judgement.

Parody: Can often come off as "too" heroic, casting suspicion on him

Mostly little bits of math things, here:

 

Looks like the trade-offs line is incomplete; filling it out will be important, as this character has significant trade-offs!

 

With +5 Defense, Visionary would have +3 Flat-Footed defense. It's the only place in the game where you functionally round up; blame the game designers!

 

You've purchased 6pp of feats, which is correct in the final Totals line but not in the Feats line.

 

You're only using Dynamic 2 here (a dynamic base power and a dynamic alternate power), not 3. The cost is correct, though, at 19pp for the array (though you've lost a '[' somewhere!).

This is a very slightly tweaked version of our Sample Paragon. I mean like literally copied and pasted. I've never had any problem with that, and the math is both simple and works. So then,
