Alexandria is the perfect city. Clean, friendly, and extremely prosperous. This city is, was, and always will be the pinnacle of achievement. But things are changing in Alexandria, street by street, hour by hour, the city is being sucked into darkness. Entire blocks are succumbing to poverty, to disrepair, and no one will step up to fix it..

YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE SAFE AND SOUND
but you need a hero now
Full Name: Hunter Langley
Power: Hunter can control his own gravitational field, which goes about a foot around him and extends to whatever he may be holding at the time, allowing him to walk on walls and ceilings. This also allows him to jump and could also make himself practically weightless and hover for longer. Dealing with different gravitational forces makes him stronger than most, but by no means is this super strength - it's more of a side effect. His organs and body are also specially suited to deal with the rapid change in gravity, unlike most people, who would get nauseus or suffer internally from too much exposure to a rapid change in gravity.
If Hunter spends too much time in a different gravitational force, breathing becomes difficult - it feels as though the oxygen has been sucked out of the atmosphere when he slows down, and when he speeds up it's like he's flooded with oxygen and will begin hyperventilating. However, he has spent enough time in other gravity weights to move somewhat more freely than other people would be able to, unless they were especially quick or strong, in which case they would be able to deal slightly better than others.
A fast moving projectile, such as a bullet, wouldn't be affected by gravity muchh - its course might alter a bit, but the higher the speed the less the chance it has of dropping straight down or zooming right up. Things that are thrown, however, would be greatly affected, falling straight down or slowing down enough for him to dodge. If a bullet were to hit him, the damage would be the same as if it were normal gravity.
Occupation: Rebuilds classic cars and sells them - a hobby turned home business
WHERE'S THE STREET WISE HERCULES
to fight the rising odds
Appearance: Hunter is a muscular body on top of a fairly large frame. He is 6'4", with medium length dark brown hair that tends to get in his eyes a lot. His eyes are a hazel color, though at times they appear more brown or green.
Hunter hates to get dressed up, preferring casual wear to a suit and tie. His super hero costume is all black. His mask, gloves, and boots are all a dark black color. Most of his costume is a dull black, though down the center of his chest is a dark black strip of latex that shines in the light.

I CAN'T DO THIS ALL ON MY OWN
no I know I'm no Superman
Personality: Hunter can be very closed off at times, especially when meeting new people. Clients expect this from him, while others are put off by it. In clubs or situations where he would be subjected to being hit on almost endlessly by strange women (and some men) he's just uncomfortable (in both situations).
Hunter prefers to hang around people he knows, and doesn't take advantage of his position as a hero. He would one day like to be able to say that he and his wife were best friends before they were married, the way his parents were. The one thing he would differ in from his father would be that he wouldn't try to control his wife like he did to Hunter's mom.

History: Hunter was born into a middle class family. His father ran an auto shop, where he taught Hunter everything he knows about fixing cars. His mother was a stay at home mom - not by choice, mind you. After Hunter's birth Jason pressured her into the position, and though she fought his decision she eventually gave up on the idea of going back to work.
Hunter's powers began to spike when he hit puberty. There were days when he couldn't get out of bed - it would feel like a giant slab was pressing down on him - and then there were days when he would move as if in fast forward. This was especially difficult when he began lifting weights as part of training to make the football team - he could start off with a weight that feels just fine, and then randomly it would seem to get so heavy he couldn't find the strength to lift it.
When Hunter was 16 he was arrested for underaged drinking, along with the rest of the football team. His parents died in a car wreck on the way to bail him out of lockup. He refuses to forget how he had complained about them leaving him in there overnight before he found out what happened.
Hunter dropped out of high school shortly after and moved in with his father's brother, Patrick, in Alexandria. Patrick was also into cars, but what he was into more was 'chasing skirts,' as he so warmly put it. Eventually he took off with a girl to vegas for the weekend, and was killed in a mugging there just outside the airport.
Hunter now owns the auto shop Patrick owned, and uses it to fix up classic cars and sell them out front. He keeps a jet black 1969 Shelby Mustang for himself, and is very particular about who rides in it and what kind of food/beverages are brought along.
