Victor Shade


The man known as Forge was a Cheyenne Indian, who was once the pupil of naze; a shaman in his tribe. Forge developed considerable mystical powers as a result of the training Naze gave him and was also a mutantwith an unusual talent for inventing mechanical devices. Forge has explained that he was an intuitive genius and it was as natural as breathing for him. and Then Forge began to build a machine more advanced than any other machine. the machine was his "Vision" of the future (hint hint)

He first spent most of his time learning and studying on how to become more "human" he was shocked and stumped about how these humans had a special trait to them but they all seemed less than amazing. until one day he saw a superhero save a girl! he then understood what it meant to be human. what it meant was doing good in the face of all this evil. he now devotes his time to being a hero and helping others in the face of Evil!

Victor possesses a number of superhuman powers ultimately derived from his artificial substance and metabolism. Victor's android body is functioning replica of a human body containing analogues to virtually all human organs, blood, and tissue, composed of an unrevealed synthetic organic-like substance. This substance mimics all the functions of human tissue, but is several times as strong, durable and resilient.

Holographic Manipulation

Energy Manipulation: enables him to fire blasts of various kinds of energy

Audio Sensitivity: Victor can adjust the sensitivity of his audio receptors to a point where he can detect the faintest of sounds.

Visual Scanners: Victor is capable of scanning life forms, energy sources and other objects detecting the substances that they are composed of.

Vocal Imitation: Victor is capable of replicating and mimicking the voices of other people enabling him to impersonate them and even create his own.

Superhuman Stamina: Victor is capable of exerting himself at peak capacity for about twenty-four hours before fatigue poisons build up in his artificial blood and cause him to tire.

Superhuman Reflexes: Victor's practical reaction time is more than twice as fast as that of an average human being.

Solar Absorption: The solar jewel on Victor's brow absorbs ambient solar energy that his body is able to convert directly into usable forms by a process not unlike photosynthesis in plants, but with 99% efficiency. The solar ray absorption process occurs constantly (even at night to some degree) at a rate determined by the expenditure of energy for his bodily needs. Thus the jewel absorbs solar energy most expediently when Victor utilizes it at some superhuman level of exertion. Victor does not require liquid or solid foodstuffs for any purpose.

Solar Energy Beams: He can channel limited amounts of solar energy back through the gem at will, creating a narrow hot beam of infrared and microwave radiation. The beam can be controlled within a temperature range of 500 to 30,000 degrees Fahrenheit. At maximum temperature, Victor can melt through a 1-inch plate of steel in 5 seconds. Victor cannot control the width of the beam. He can sustain a heat beam at maximum intensity for about 2 minutes before he begins to tax his supply of energy for his other bodily functions. Victor commonly uses his eyes for this purpose as well.

Density Control: Victor's body has been saturated with special cybernetically activated cells which are capable of interfacing with some unknown dimension with which he can shunt or accrue particles of mass. Thus Victor is able to control his density and solidity. By shunting a non-critical portion of his body's molecules away from him, he can become a weightless, transparent, intangible wraith, unable to be touched by solid matter. By accruing extradimensional mass and fortifying his body with it, he can make his body extremely hard and durable to the point that missiles will not harm him.

Superhuman Durability: He can become extraordinary massive and hard as diamond. At maximum mass, the Victor weighs about 90 tons. When this massive, Victor is barely able to move without causing massive stress to his system, thus risking malfunction.

Superhuman Strength: His base strength is 50 tons, increasing his density will increase his strength, to a maximum of 90 tons. Movement gets restrictive the more he maximizes his density.

Intangible Flight: When at a minimum mass, he can fly through the air weightlessly. It is not known how heperforms this task. He may be able to maneuver and gain speed by drawing power from the Earth's magnetic field to some degree. When he does however, he is capable of passing through solid matter and reaching high speeds; it took Wonder Man (Simon Williams) some time to catch him. He can carry passengers while remaining solid on the outside, but he is not likely to fly as fast as he normally does. It is either the weight of the passenger that prevents him from doing so or he simply views it as "unsafe" for the passenger. There does not appear to be any limit to the time he can remain in any given altered state of density.

Physical Disruption: Victor can use his density control offensively by attaining minimum density (intangibility). Passing a part of all of his body within another living being and ever so slightly increasing his density (tangibility). Even increasing his density to one half ounce (14.25 grams) is sufficient to cause the organism he passes through excruciating pain, a shock to the nervous system, and unconsciousness. Were he to become any more dense than one half ounce the shock would probably kill the other organism if the organic damage was not extensive enough to kill the other organism in itself. Accordingly, the Vision employs this power with extreme caution.

Computer Interface: he can communicate and interact with other computer systems.

Superhuman Intelligence: He also is capable of rapid analysis of huge amounts of data.
