Psh... at times...

The HCP is practically nonstop strength and endurance training in between practicing using your powers against each other and simulated supers in apocalyptic scenerios.

Whether you keep doing that AFTER becoming a Hero is ultimately up to you... a lot of strength and endurance based heroes don't get much out of that sort of training, and don't keep doing it after school.

I do still have an App incoming. My original idea evolved into something else, then something else, and then into something like a hybrid between the two.

App should be in within a day.

Current idea is the same corpie turned hero, but a Phytomancer. Hero training turned him from a straight manipulator into something closer to a plant based powersuit user with mid range plant manipulation.

They'll tell all sorts of comforting things to you. It's not your fault, there's nothing you could have done, they're in a better place. My favourite meaningless platitude I was told, was time heals all wounds. It doesn't. Time scabs over the wound, hiding it. It's still there. You don't get over finding your parents dismembered corpses when you're a little kid. It's like having a void in your heart that can't be filled. I was sent to live with family in the States. They couldn't cope with my grief, so I hid it. Pretended to be normal. Got pretty good at it., though even without the murders in my past, my DNA was always going to ensure I was never going to be normal.
I'm told that I may even surpass my mother's intelligence one day, and she was one of the smartest people on the planet. My control over telekinesis is greater than my father's, allowing for precision. Guess the obsessive training paid off. So villains, just for clarity, I'm going to devote my mind, time and resources to finding my parents' killers. Pray that you're not in my way, and if you are, you should be afraid.

-From the diary of Tom Drummond AKA Black Myrmidon.

Background
"So do you wanna hear an origin story? Of course you do. You wouldn't be here if you didn't. Let me tell you the tragic story of Tom Drummond. He was born in Scotland to the superhero husband and wife team, Silver Sentinel and Black Banshee. Daddy was a telekinesis user, and his mom.... Probably the most brilliant technological mind I ever met, that even includes me, and I'm pretty damn impressive. Happy childhood, I know because I saw. Friend of the family. Knew he was going to be something special early on. Manifested his telekinetic power early on. Read and memorised the classics by age 8.
Of course the happy home life was to end. The kid comes down to the kitchen and finds a bloodbath. His parents are sliced and diced all over the place. He does what he's told to do and calls his parents' friends. I arrive. as does other Supers. We take Tom into safety. Despite years of investigation, we never find the killer. Tom goes into care whilst lawyers argue about his mom's tech company and the family fortune.
He's sent to live with live with family in the States, California to be precise. They aren't supers and don't really know what to do with him. Tom just shuts down and focuses on school and getting into Lander University. Given his impressive abilities, what should be a highly competitive application process, is rendered a cakewalk. He's gotten consistently high grades. Tom will probably be valedictorian for his year. If memory serves he's also just came into his inheritance."


Personality
"Tom reminds me most of Fiona, his mom. He has her laser focus when he's working on something, and he's always super serious. I don't remember him laughing, or even smiling. The only thing he seems to have inherited from Douglas is his power and his green eyes. Tom certainly has none of his father's charisma, as I think he doesn't really have any friends. Don't get me wrong, he performs well on team actions and understands the importance of teamwork but he isn't social. The one college party he attended, was only because his roommate threw one in their dorm and Tom happened to be there. He left to go to library to study. He's either studying, in the lab or in class. Douglas would probably be appalled that the University has warned Tom he needs to socialise more. Tom's old man used to be the life and soul of the party. I think once he earns superhero status, he's going to focus on finding his parents' killer."

Powers
"I've mentioned before that Tom's telekinetic power control is superior to Douglas'. I've seen the kid assemble devices with that alone. It's also his main offensive power, backed up by an improved version of his mom's sonic ring, should his telekinetic fail. Sharing his mom's intelligence, Tom is better at improvising technological solutions than she is, and has a wider range of knowledge.
As for the armour, if you aren't a super, you probably ain't cracking it. The helmet is quite interesting. Tom appears to have packed in every sensor he could find into it. Even I'm not sure how he did it. I'd quite like to take a look at it closely one day"


Description
https://adamkatzsinding.com/backstag...ster-paris-91/
"Well Tom is 6 foot, raven haired and has Douglas' emerald eyes, as well as Fiona's pale marble skin. Actually he looks kind of plain when you compare him to his parents. He tends to dress conservatively, and wears glasses even though he doesn't need them. Why I don't know. You kids today.
In his armour he looks like a giant black ant. Hence the name Black Myrmidon. From some Greek ant myth. No I don't know the story."



"So you came recommended. Do you think you can kill the little s"""? He's too much like Fiona. He has her laser focus and he won't stop until he's found the truth. Oh and try and do it cleanly, not like the guy I hired to kill his parents. Don't be that guy. I am a friend of the family after all."

Relationships
You should know about the significant people in his life. There just might be a way to him through them.

Qistina Akif
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/...20171101144708
A fourth generation American of Lebanese descent from Manhatten. Eyes up. This is the era of me too. Besides if you get distracted by those in a fight, she can quite easily crack your skull open. She's another super. Super strength, some sort of leaping ability, high toughness coupled with a poison immunity. Goes by Meteor. Unless you have a plan, by which I mean an amazing plan, leave her be.
Qistina met Tom whilst they're both studying for a Law degree. One of the few he hasn't got yet. Amazingly she and Tom dated at Lander. Even more amazingly they kept it secret from most. Tom was pulling above his weight there. Studying together, Tom was tutoring her as her grades were slipping. Qistina manages to get him to have a personal conversation, and discover a mutual love of science. On this subject Tom can be quite articulate, and Qistina is able to engage and keep his interest! Perhaps it's a super power she doesn't know she has. They seem to suffer from mutual adoration.I had high hopes she could get him off the whole avenging his parents path. Then he goes and do the stupid thing of dumping her. She is upset and confused as Qistina thought things were going good. She wants to have the talk with Tom to find out why he dumped her. Honestly I'm a little curious too. Tom hasn't confided in me.

Split Second
Not as stupid as he looks. There again nobody could possibly look as stupid as he looks. Tom's room mate and constant study buddy. I hesitate to call him Tom's "friend" as I'm pretty sure they've never shared anything personal. Has some sort of time based powers.

Robin Shaw AKA Light show.
Another room mate of Tom's. This one Douglas would have liked. Popular and wants to be everyone's friend. Sadly for him, popularity does not translate to academic success. Robin is going to flunk the program. Corporation work beckons, and his light based powers should .make it big in Hollywood. He has managed to wear Tom down to the point he has accepted a party invite.

Jane Mcalpine
Tom's aunt. She was sent by Fiona to run the American branch of Future Tech Industries. Ended up running it all and taking Tom in after the Drummonds' demise. Has two daughters, slightly older than Tom. Both typical rich brats.
Dear sweet Jane is p***ing herself at the thought of Tom joining the company, as she's been putting her hand in the till for years after Fiona died. She certainly wouldn't have the balls to try that if Fiona had lived, and Jane knows Tom is his mother's son. Not only would he hand her over to the authorities without a second thought, he would tie her up in litigation for the rest of her days. That is such a Fiona move.
Dear Jane's plan seems to be to bury him in the R&D department, and try to distract him with parties and women. Which just goes to show how little she understands her nephew. Hmm she may make an excellent fall guy....

Split Second would like to argue that if you think time doesn't heal all wounds, then you are clearly not using enough of it...
(Like violence solving all problems)

Quick question... I want to remake my application but I need some critique before I throw it out there.

Concept:
Gambit BUT instead of anything/ exploding when he charges it ... His powers only affect deli/lunch meat. Different meats having different affects, of course.

No, most deli meat is processed, touching an animal would have no affect.

Things like pepperoni, mortidela, bologna, capacola... But each requiring a charge and each with a different outcome.

Example:
With a charge, a slice of honey cured ham acts as a glue trap. Bologna could have an illusionary area affect. Chorizo would have a fire affect etc, etc, ad nauseum.

I support this concept but only if he sounds like Keith David and/or H. Jon Benjamin.
