Ethan Hunt is a senior field operations agent for the Impossible Mission Force, an elite, top-secret espionage and covert operations agency that handles dangerous and highly sensitive international missions.
- He is described as a tough, uniquely trained and highly motivated individual, who is a great expert without any equal, and described as immune to any countermeasures. He is depicted as an individual who is able to extract any secret data, to breach any security system, and able to become any person in the world easily via the latex masks provided by the IMF.
- He is also incredibly intelligent, and almost recklessly daring in his missions. He is highly cunning and extremely astute and calculating, especially when it comes to knowing his enemies. He is highly idealistic and devises philosophical traps during debates.
- While stealing a NOC list from CIA HQ , Hunt is able to stay in this position for several minutes, knowing that he can´t touch the floor
- In the same mission, any sound louder than a whisper and a drop of water touching the floor will activate the alarm. Ethan has the awareness to catch his own drops of sweat.
- Ethan does rock climbing and jumping without any safety measures.
- But of course he is not perfect, and while falling, he manages to save himself with both hands. And proceeds to hang with one hand only.
- Running downwards the freaking Burj Khalifa
- The madman then runs sideways and calculates when to jump and release himself. He nearly pulls it off but he is saved by Brandt and Jane Carter
- While escaping with the help of Ilsa Faust, Ethan does a dragon plank-esque escape from the pole.
- Escapes the inside of a truck before being hit by a missile.
- Gets hit by a speeding car, but is skilled and durable enough to take the hit, and get a grip on the vehicle, and not falling.
- Drives a car through a several feet fall and crashes frontally.
But he is fine enough to save the world, with the help of his team, of course
- Running, lots of running , some instances for several minutes without getting seemingly tired.
