Personality and Bio

Out of his uniform Alex is a funny and likeable person, He doesn't tolerate bullying or any type of abuse. He is an avid detective and enjoys painting and singing. His father is his hero and despite his past, Alex looks up to him immensely and promised to continue the Legacy of being the Fastest Man Alive. Growing out of his rough and quite angsty teen years Alex knew it was time for him to grow up. Throwing aside his horrible past he grew up and decided to become better. Alex can be quite mature and grown up, though he may seemed pained. As if he's carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders.

In the time 2067 Wallace Walker had a son,When Alexander's father first sensed the Speed Force in his son in Alexanders body he was not at all surprised, he had a feeling that his son would become a speedster. But he was surprised to see how potent it resonated in his body how deeply it was connected to his core his soul Because his son was special, he mainlined the Speed Force. When Alex was about 5 years old Wallace knew it was his time to begin, not as a costumed hero...But as his trainee. First it began with knowledge, Wallace didn't want to be training an immature child so he and his son began working on building knowledge. After that it was reflexes, honing his natural human responses would be essential for moving at superspeeds.

Then it was time for the speed itself Alex's powers were stunted and Wallace didn't know the cause of why. When Alex was 7 his father had a battle with the Time Master and his mother, brother and sister got caught in the crossfire and ultimately died at the hands of the villain and left Wallace broken and unable to heal for some unnatural reason, some believed it was a mental block he had put on himself. It broke something in Alex but it allowed something to come into its place...Power. Alex understood what his father had been teaching him and now he was unafraid. But during Wallaces time of recovery Alex was taken prisoner and was sold into slavery

After a few months a contact assassin was hired to take out the slave traders. And somehow he knew this child was special, so they sent him to the League Of Darkness. The League was an immensely large group of assassins run by one man...Raysh Al Shaytan. They made him into one of them. But it wasn't for him. So after several years, he left. After several months of living by himself Jai was found and raised by Thomas Richards, the Outlaw himself. Though he loved his time with Thomas, death separated them, this was the final straw for Alex, and he found himself speeding through time where he landed in 2019, after spending several months here and meeting the woman who would soon be his girlfriend Alex saved his family and reversed the timeline where he went back too and stayed for over a year.

Now 18 Alex has returned to 2019 where he's found several things different. And after learning that his father Wally was leaving for the future to start a life Alex finally grew up and took his place as the Fastest Man Alive. Absorbing the residual energy of his father Alex grew in speed, no on par with Lucy Walker, the creator of the Speed Force and the two fastest beings in existence.

Super Speed
No Caption Provided

Alex Walker is possibly the most powerful of the speedsters. Alex's speed comes from a combination of muscular speed, an sped up nervous system with faster nerve conduction velocity and high energy resources that are empowered by the Speed Force. The young man discharges a trail of golden yellow and even sometimes white lightning behind him when he runs. The Mitochondria in Alex's body are in a super sped up condition allowing his body to function and draw energy at super speed. He is fast capable of exceeding lightspeed, though Alexander usually caps his speed out at about Half the Speed of Light, deciding that that's fast enough to accomplish basically any task he needs. But he's able to go much faster, since his fathers exit from 2019.

Alex's incredible speed also allows him to generate superhuman force that simulates the effect of superhuman strength. His virtually unrivaled connection to the Speed Force makes Alex the fastest being alive besides his Aunt Lucy.

Additional Abilities

The Speed Force creates excess energy that builds up and needs to be released. Alex, along with all speedsters connected, acts as a release valve for the Speed Force. When Wally uses his powers, he taps into that built up energy and expends it. Being a Speed Force Conduit radically accelerates all aspects of Wally's being. Due to mainlining the Speed Force itself and his fathers departure, Alex has since gained a much stronger connection to it, and can tap into it much more than before.

Alex's body generates large amounts of electrical energy that he draws from the Speed Force. This Speed Force lightning emanates off of him, especially when he moves at super-speed. When angered, Alex's body will supercharge with large amounts of electricity. He can also enhance his strikes with his lightning. The color of his lightning was originally yellow, although after escaping the Speed Force, the color of his lightning turned white, due to his connection to the Speed Force growing stronger after being adrift within it for so long. But due to recent circumstances his lightning has changed to a more golden color. When generated at high volumes, Alex's Speed Force energy is powerful enough to even disrupt and destroy constructs of Sentinels such as Zach Rayner. Alex's lightning can heal the wounds of others, through contact though the severity of the injury determines how fast and affective the healing is. Due to his electrical generation, Alex has some level of manipulation over magnetism, which he uses to control his suit's armor. Every time Alex releases his suit from his ring, the metal pieces of it are conducted by his lightning to form the suit around him. He can also mentally manipulate the metal pieces that form his mask and cause them to unravel, unmasking himself, and Alex can also use his lightning to create electromagnetic fields.

The quantum tunneling effect is a quantum phenomenon which occurs when particles move through a barrier that, should be impossible to move through. The barrier may be a physically impassable medium, such as an insulator or a vacuum, or a region of high potential energy. In classical mechanics, when a particle has insufficient energy, it would not be able to overcome a potential barrier. In the quantum world, however, particles can often behave like waves. On encountering a barrier, a quantum wave will not end abruptly; rather, its amplitude will decrease exponentially. This drop-in amplitude corresponds to a drop in the probability of finding a particle further into the barrier. If the barrier is thin enough, then the amplitude may be non-zero on the other side. This would imply that there is a finite probability that some of the particles will tunnel through the barrier. By vibrating his molecules at a high enough frequency Alex can pass through material objects. But he rarely does this due to the fact that more often then not he causes molecular destabilization, causing the object he passes or vibrates through to explode or disintegrate, so he will sometimes weaponize this, but not usually.

Alexander can also enhance and speed up his thought process so his mind and thoughts are a blur to any outside elements. He is basically impervious to telepathic abilities because the velocity of his thoughts is incomprehensible to anyone without the ability to move as fast as him - which is a very small list.

Alex possesses the ability to encircle an opponent at high speeds and create a swirling vortex. This is a non-violent use of Alex's powers which allows him to disarm and incapacitate an opponent without resorting to a high-speed flurry of punches. He can also cause vortexes with his arms by swirling them at superspeeds in clockwise or counter-clockwise directions. By imparting his Speed and momentum into objects, Alex can move objects at super speed. This can be used as a very impressive and affective weapon. Alex is also able to steal the momentum and speed from objects around him, like bullets and other objects. Stealing speed from living beings incredibly difficult and Alex is unable to do it unless he makes physical contact and focuses all his attention to stealing their speed.

Physical Attributes

Superhuman Stamina- Alexander possesses incredible endurance that is nearly inexhaustible. He was able to run non-stop for a million miles without stopping while him and Kid Superion were testing out the Savitr armor, he eventually was caused to halt due to his heart condition though. This disability has left allowing Alex full range of his endurance back.

Superhuman Agility- Alex's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are heightened to levels greater than any human being. He is able to easily get around on falling debris and objects while moving at super-speed without losing his balance or footing. This also allows him to easily make sharp turns and leap far distances while moving incredibly fast

Superhuman Reflexes- His reaction time is enhanced to levels far beyond any normal human being. He is able to easily perceive the movements of other speedsters, and react to danger and events. His reflexes are enhanced to the point where he can dodge bullets point-blank.

Superhuman Strength- The Speed Force enhances Alex's physical strength to levels superior to the average human being. He is strong enough to lift 800lbs with no physical strain, even while running with it. He can also single-handedly reconstruct ruined buildings and move heavy beams and girders into place.

Enhanced Mind- Alex's mental abilities are also increased in speed, simple computations can be done at lightning speeds, and his ability to perform normal feats at increased speeds has allowed him to build hundreds of objects or search an entire area for something as small as a paper clip. Alex can also read at super-speed, but rarely takes advantage of this ability to learn at increased speeds.

Enhanced Senses- Tachyon possesses enhanced senses that allow him to perceive normally at super-speed, and the ability to alter his perceptions so that falling objects can appear to be standing still. His ability to alter his own perception of time is so great, that if he wishes, the tick between a second can pass for millions of years. He can even push this ability to the point, that to him, it is as if everything is standing still. It does not truly standstill, it is his own perception of time that seems to stand still, and his body automatically adjusts to his perception, hence, the slower he views the world, the faster his body moves through time/space to adjust to his perception.

Enhanced Durability- Alex is capable of resisting tremendous kinetic impact forces that could easily crush or kill a human, without suffering any serious external or internal injuries, making him much more durable than any human.

Speed Force Aura- A speedsters body is surrounded by a "friction cushion", which provides protection from the nastier elements of their speed, including friction, airborne particulate matter, kinetic impacts, G-Force and such. It also allows speedsters like Alex to run at speeds faster than light without causing damage to the environment.

Alex's Gear

. . .

?Cowl: Made from metalic plates made from the Speed Force, Alex's cowl is scarlet in color, with spaces in the middle that surges with Speed Force electricity. The wingtips on his ear work as a communication system, and a buffer so that Alex can hear over the wind.

...

Armor: Alex wears a ring that holds his armor compressed within it. A gas allowes his costume to be compressed and held within his ring until he needs it. His street clothes were properly treated to take their place within the ring once he changed at superspeed. Alex's suit was given to him by his father, and is an exact replica of the Flash Lightning uniform. He uses a special cold cast polyester, which can be molded into miniature outfits from liquid material, that, when submersed in a special liquid, became sensitive to hydrogen, expanding on contact with the hydrogen in the air. A charge from the ring he wore on his finger caused the fabric to release the extra hydrogen and shrink into the ring.

His suit is completely scarlet with red gloves and darker shades of red on the shoulder areas, here is a lightning emblem in the center of the chest, And to hide his identity, Jai wears a cowl that covers his entire head, but it leaves his eyes and, mouth, exposed There are also two golden lightning pieces on the sides of the cowl that act as the com links and wind buffers. The Suit is made out of a reinforced tri-polymer and metallic Speed Force Alloy's, making it resistant to grazing bullets, knives, abrasions, or scars.

Weaknesses

Absent-Minded- Alex is an extremely absentminded person, usually not being able to focus on one thing for more than a few moments. This makes him somewhat awkward in combat situations and makes him prone to mistakes and being tagged by others.

Extremely Cold Temperatures- Due to speed and cold being opposites, being exposed to extremely cold temperatures causes Alex extreme pain. He was once incapacitated by a cold gun that left insanely painful freezer burns on his sides and body.

Inexperience- Alex hasn't had much formal training with his powers, and despite being powerful, he's not well trained or well versed in his abilities, which makes fighting more skilled opponents even more difficult, regardless of his speed.

Start the Conversation

Alex West: The Fastest Man Alive

Run. Alex. Run.

Those were some of the first words Alex can ever remember hearing, his mama spoke to him in a soft whisper. She would gently run her hand down his head and hold him tight and let out a whisper that sounded like it belonged to a ghost...A ghost...

You can fight past all the world throws at you. All you have to do is run.

Alex ran when his mother and siblings were killed. Alex ran away. Distance was all that mattered. Alex wasn't stopping for anything and he sure as hell wasn't going back to rescue them. Psshhh. Like Hell...What was Alex going to do? His childish eyes stayed glued to the highway as he bolted away from the fight while the world passed in a blur of red and white lights. The seven-year-old leaned forward to turn his speed up. In that instant he lost the opportunity to evade a newly broken-down car without it's lights off. Even if he had been paying attention he would have been hard-pressed to make the maneuver. As it was the young boy barely had time to scream before the car knocked him back and sideways causing him to tumble backwards several miles. The boy tumbled over and over into the highway before coming to an absolute stop. Silence; it scared Alex more than the pain. He felt fear. Alex felt the panic begin like a cluster of spark plugs in his abdomen. Tension grew in his face and limbs, the kids mind replaying the last attack. His breathing became more rapid, more shallow. In these moments before his own personal hurricane, Alex understood why he needed to go back. He hits a speed he had never reached before as he blistered the road as he raced to get back home ignoring the pain. He pressed on the little earpiece in his ear as he called his mama; no answer. He called again, his heart racing faster - no answer. Again - no answer. Again -no answer. No Mama. Alex's green eyes scanned the world around him for a trail of lightning a sign from his father...but he saw nothing. The panic grew. in seconds he was in front of his house, watching...slow motion. Stop motion. No. Motion. He saw it all. The light leave their eyes, the subtle grayness of their skin as they hit the grass lifeless. The marks around their necks that suggested a high-velocity snapping. His father...lying there helpless. Unable to care for his only surviving child

To slow. To Late. ToSlowToLate

So Alex ran to the League Of Darkness when they offered him a way out of his darkness. A way to harness his pain and use it on someone else. He still can smell the sweet and sickly stench of smoke and metal from the forges up deep in the mountains. The Slick and metallic taste of blood. Alex was running. But he was running a race for someone else. Something else. So he left. His race was his. And his alone.

Alone. Alone. All Alone.

Alex remembered the night Thomas found him. It was raining...except it wasn't just rain, it was a downpour as heavy as the 14 year old Alex had ever seen. Walking through a waterfall couldn't get any wetter. The drops struck the already wet sidewalk, pitting the surface like they were bullets from above. There was no harm in it, Key City would be just the same after the storm had gone an passed. But by then it would have washed the evidence down the storm drains. He scowled into the dark of almost noon, his mood a perfect mirror of the sky above, but then he struck the shoulder of a savior, of the Crimson Knight himself. The Outlaw in a red hood. Thomas taught Alex how to fight and survive, how to use his power. How to become a hero. For the first time since he was 6 Alex felt...happy. But all good things must come to an end.

Death. Death. Death.

A battle. A war. So many dead. Thomas Dead. Damian Dead. All of his Allies..dead. They lie like dolls over the grass, limbs at awkward angles and heads held in such a way that they cannot be sleeping. These bodies, once the repositories of people Alex loved, are now abandoned shells left to rot in the open. Who will bury them and weep salty tears onto their grave? Who will send them away with a love song and kiss the breeze that carries them heaven-bound? Likely no-one at all. Some will be consumed by the wildlife and others simply decay, slowly giving up their flesh to the soil and showing their white bones to the sun, because Alex couldn't bring himself to do it. He couldn't touch them knowing that they wouldn't respond.

So Alex ran.

Run. Alex. Run.

Pounding in his ears, lighting his blood on fire, he raced away to the only place he felt safe. The last place he had felt truly loved. The 16-year-old speedster set foot inside his old house and sucked in a deep breath as he remembered everything that had happened here. The good and the bad. While Alex was drifting around in a daze his foot got caught on a crumpled piece of paper. Picking it up he saw, and he remembered his siblings dream superhero costume. Burgundy and white uniform, with a silver lightning bolt in the middle, with an exposed top so that their hair could run as free as they did, they were going to be a matching set. The Tornado Twins. But time was to short. Alex found his suit changing. He felt a silent unheard dream coming true. The dream of two children.

Time. The answer is in time.

No Caption Provided

Alex left. He left his time period and rocketed to the past where he could fix things, set everything up to work in his favor. 2019 was his home now. And he arrived in a blaze of lightning. Along the way he met people. He made friends. He made enemies, he went to school. He was hated by his peers and loved by the world. Velocity, the Newest Speedster on the block. Equal to Flash Lightning. The young man ran his race. Fought foes, found love. But in the end, he had a goal. Save his family. He accomplished said goal, he managed to change the timeline, stop his family's murders. He ran his race. And he was happy.

Done running. Finally done.

But no speedsters race was truly over. Alex got a call, his friend was hurt. A deep sleep. A trance.

Run Alex Run.

The girl of his dreams the girl he loves, he can't let her go.

Run Alex. Run.

A planet called Kalar, overridden by a vast intergalactic army.

Run...Alex....Run.

Chaos incarnate. Threatening his friends.

Don't stop Alex. Keep running. Keep pushing forward.

And finally here he stands now. His fathers inches away, telling him he's leaving. He's going to fufill his life. Get married. Fall in love. Alex sighs and his head bows to the ground scraping the abyss. His mess of orange hair usually vibrant with life, droops with sadness. "Dad. No. You can't leave."

A scarlet hand falls gently on his shoulder as his father looks at him with a twinkle in his eyes, his mouth curling into a smile. His face shining with pride "You have to let me go, Alexander. Keep pushing forward. Don't stop running. You're my son. I love you." Wallace refused to look away from his son, even as his lips trembled and his shoulders heaved with emotion, unwilling to back down. Flash Lightning's dark lashes brimmed heavy with tears; his hands clenched into shaking fists, in a desperate battle against the grief. A lone tear traced down his cheek, and just like that, the floodgates opened. He wept, tears streaming from his deep green eyes, loud, heaving sobs tearing from his throat, and still, he did not look away. He clutched his son close. Pulling him tighter then the Speed Force pulled a speedster at lightspeed. The duo had been through a lot together, they had fought the Reaper together, Alex had brought back Lucy. He was Wally's son. His blood....his Legacy.

Through it all Alex did not cry. He stood there as still as a rock, as empty as a shadow. His arms limp at his sides and his eyes the palest green imaginable, Alex had all the emotion of wet concrete, his facial muscles just as loose. There was no anger, no sadness, no joy or resentment. Just...empty.

Alone.

He felt the release of his father, his hand slipping away.

Alone.

He heard and saw the crackle of electricity as his father sprinted away to live his life. To start again, and fufill the loop. Alex felt his legs move even though he didn't even realize it. He felt the sonic boom but didn't hear it. All he was focused on was his father. The Earth split underneath his boot, Alex's legs a torrent of motion, a keg in the wheel of time. He pushed foward, faster than he had ever gone before. He caught up to his father. He screamed. "DAD NO! DON'T LEAVE! PLEASE!"

He sprinted forward and clasped his hand on his fathers forearm; refusing to let go. But Wally looked at him deeply, "Alex, it's time for you to let. Go. And move on with your life. Pursue your dreams, you do not need me. You're the Fastest Man Alive, I need you to be the hero I know you can be. The hero your mother knew you would become. Let it go now Alex, let it go."

As they approached light-speed and the Space-Time barrier Alex felt his grip on his father loosen. With one final moment Wally placed something in his sons' hands...a ring, with a golden lightning bolt engraved in it.Then he was gone.

Alexander skid to a stop somewhere in Africa, the stars shined like suns, the sky was as black as onyx. And Alex felt himself clench up. Then Alex cried. And When he cried there was a rawness to it, the pain was still an open wound. He would clasp onto something for support, anything, a withered tree or the hardness of a rock, and then his whole body would shake. The sobs were stifled at first as he attempted to hide his grief that was visible to no one, then overcome by the wave of his emotions he would break down entirely, all his defenses washed away in those salty tears. As much as he tried to hold it in, the pain came out like an uproar from his throat in the form of a groundshaking scream. The beads of water started falling down one after another, without a sign of stopping. He hit the rock and continued to scream, the sobs wracked against his chest. The world turned into a blur, and so did all the sounds. The taste. The smell. Everything was gone. Alexander West slid to the desert ground. His dream of becoming the Fastest fufilled. But all it cost him was the very person he fought so hard to return too.

And before he drifted into unconsciousness he muttered heartbrokenly: "Alone."

Alone.

Characteristics/Look/Other details

Physical Appearance- Alex is handsome with a lean and muscular build due to his running and combat training.

Personality- Out of his uniform Alex is a funny and likeable person, he's always quick to make a joke and lighten the mood for those who need it.He doesn't tolerate bullying or any type of abuse. He believes the "Ends Justify The Means" and will sometimes do questionable acts to save lives but he truly believes them to do good. He has killed and vowed to never do it again. Alex can get extremely serious in times of crisis when his family, friends or comrades are in danger and will not hesitate to jump into the front lines to help them. He can be incredibly patient and enjoys painting and singing. He loves his father and will go to any length to protect him and his friends.

Powers/Abilities

Intellect- Due to his extreme speeds Alex can read and process things much easier then a normal human and that includes knowledge.

Speed Force Conduit: While all speedsters are powered by the force, Alex West mainlines the power from the Speed Force itself and cannot be cut off from the source when his father passed his powers down to him. He contains the entirety of the Force inside his cells, unlike the others. Alex is the fastest of All Flashes perhaps rivaled only by his mentor and father, Wallace West He is arguably the fastest being that has ever existed. He is currently fast enough to easily break all the barriers and even enter the Speed Force. Alex has, on several occasions, traveled much faster than light and entered and exited the Speed Force by his own. Velocity is considered to be one of the most formidable and powerful meta-humans on the planet

Superhuman Speed- Alex West is tied with his father for the title the Fastest Man Alive, and is arguably the fastest being to ever exist, making him one of the most powerful beings to exist. Speeds greater than Mach 10, are dangerous to both people and to the environment, but the Speed Force has shown that Alex can use it to prevent such effects from occurring, which why he is able to run at speeds much faster than light on the planet Earth without it having devastating effects on the planet. He can also run across bodies of water and up the sides of buildings.

Flight-By spinning like a helicopter, he can even perform a limited kind of flight. Since his power is a quantum/molecular phenomenon, Velocity has been able to fly just as other metas are able to because he can control his absolute molecular energy and direction and force it in the direction he wished to move without running. Though he rarely makes use of this ability as he enjoys running. The Speed Force also allows him to run in frictionless environments, as he was able to run in space itself, as casually as he was running on the ground without any outside assistance.

Superhuman Strength-The Speed Force enhances Alex's physical strength to levels superior than the average human being. He is strong enough to lift 800lbs with no sign of physical strain, even while running with it. He has also been seen single-handedly reconstructing several ruined buildings from battles that had gone awry, and moving heavy beams and girders into place. And by speeding up muscle growth in his body he can become even stronger this takes a lot of energy to do and it makes him slower the stronger he gets.

Dimensional Travel-Alex has shown to be able to traverse dimensions with his own powers, He now accelerates to the point that he is skirting the very edge of the Speed Force dimension or even entering it. In order to enter the Speed Force dimension he must exceed light speed, which he can easily and instantly do. But he only enters the Speed Force in extreme conditions in which he needs to power up because he lacks a serious "Lightning Rod" to ground him to reality so entering the Speed Force causes extreme danger to Alex.

Electrokinesis-Alex is able to completely control the electricity that he uses when he moves at superspeeds and can sometimes create electricity without moving.

Energy Construct Creation-Wallace West discovered if he concentrated, the Speed Force could be used to create solid constructs which he used to compose his costume and he passed this knowledge to his son. He can seal up the openings of his costume against disease, creating pockets for holding things, airtight etc. His costume itself is a construct molded from the Speed Force. His father was also able to construct a vibrational prison of Speed Force energy to hold enemies which Alex sometimes uses to keep his enemies who are to powerful and dangerous for regular prison.

Intangibility- Alex can vibrate his molecules to achieve an intangible state. While in an intangible state, the Velocity is immune to any airborne viruses and can breathe regularly. He can also vibrate so fast that light does not reflect off him, rendering him invisible

Phasing: Velocity has always possessed the ability to control his speed and angular momentum at the molecular level, and control his molecular interactions to allow his body to pass through any substance. Though through times of duress when he phases through objects he can cause molecular instability and cause them to explode.

Sharing the Force-"Lending" velocity to objects or people already in motion. Since his interaction with the Speed Force, he may also lend his speed and angular momentum to another object or person. This may allow others to run alongside with Velocity.

Speed Force Empathy-Alex can sense when another Speedster is troubled, and can be drawn to the location of that person, it's easier to do the better he knows the person.

Time Travel-Alex has been able to traverse time with his own powers, unlike the other speedsters other then his father. He can move along the time-stream to specific points as they become visible, much like watching a movie in fast forward or reverse. In order to time travel to different periods, which is why he spends long periods reading history books and history documentaries.Alex learned that he can sense when time has been manipulated, as well as listen to the Speed Force, which allows him to sense disruptions in the space-time continuum.

Infinite Mass Punch-Taught to him by his cousin Lucy Walker, Lucy told him that traveling near the speed of light acquired the relativistic mass of such speed to impart blows which could hit with a force greater than that of "a white dwarf star", Velocity's own durability regulated by the Speed Force in such cases. Relativistic effects take over as a body approaches light-speed (His control over his powers and the Speed Force is so great, that he can choose to ignore these relativistic effects if he wishes to). Visual input will begin to blueshift and his body's mass will increase towards infinity. Alex chooses to not use this ability as often as he can because of its incredible danger. He used this power to destroy the Anti-Observers armor.

Chronokinesis-In times of EXTREME Danger Alex can temporarily alter time relative to himself, manipulating the speed at which time flows around him. Only used the ability once when fighting the Time Master. It causes extreme pain afterwards and can cause serious bodily damage if done too often, Alex's amazing speed usually is all he needs in a combat situation.

Speed Scouts-Alex has the ability to create "scouts", which are energy-like avatars of himself which he could send through the time-stream and in his area, and coordinate at the same through mental linking.

Accelerated Healing-Alex can accelerate his metabolism and speed up his healing processes.

Matter Manipulation-Alexander can change matter by rearranging the molecules and vibrations objects exist at.

Speed Force Explosion-If needed Alex can use his endless connection to the Speed Force and expel it out of his body in a large blast. Calling it his "Speed Toot" It's one of Alex's most powerful and dangerous abilities. The most powerful detonation Alex has done has it's power level at 200 Nuclear bombs put together. The full limits of this ability haven't been shown.

The Lightning-Alex can "Become The Lightning" Literally turning his physical form into a bolt of Speed Force electricity, this requires a fair amount of concentration and energy. He can also use this ability to instantaneously travel places where he shares a deep connection with, or where there is electrical phenomena, he calls this ability his "Speed Force Beacon".

Enhanced Senses- Velocity possesses enhanced senses that allow him to perceive normally at super-speed, and the ability to alter his perceptions so that falling objects can appear to be standing still. His ability to alter his own perception of time is so great, that if he wishes, the tick between a second can pass for millions of years. He can even push this ability to the point, that to him, it is as if the Universe is standing still. It does not truly stand still, it is his own perception of time that seems to stand still, and his body automatically adjusts to his perception, hence, the slower he views the world, the faster his body moves through time and space to adjust to his perception.

Superhuman Agility- Alex's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are heightened to levels greater than any human being. He is able to easily maneuver on falling falling objects, debris, and is able to easily change directions while moving at super-speed.

by people like Knight Hunter, Songbird etc.

Psychic Resistance-By moving his thoughts at extreme speeds he's Able to shut out telepaths who may try to read his mind, accelerating his thoughts to fast can cause the telepaths extreme pain.

His enhanced metabolism and healing factors makes him immune to diseases and gasses.

Physical condition-Even without his abilities Alex is in peak physical condition.

Criminal Justice Knowledge-Unlike his father and Great Uncle Bart, Alex want's to become a Homicide Detective rather then a forensics expert. So Alex has been studying Criminal Justice for years.

Languages- Know's over 60 languages.

Gear

Speed Force Uniform-Equipped with High Powered protein bars which allow him to keep his metabolism in check.

Speed Force Aura-Velocity's body is surrounded by what his father calls his "Speed Force aura". This aura protects him and anyone who is running with him or carried by him, from the effects of using his speed. This includes friction and airborne particulate matter. With this aura, he is able to absorb kinetic energy. And allows him to take blows that would easily kill a regular human. Velocity was knocked several thousand feet backwards through multiple buildings at several thousand miles per hours, while suffering only minor injuries

Lightning Trail- Alex's lightning trail is white with black and gold mixed in signifying his many connections to the Speed Force, he often weaponizes his Lightning Trail

GodSpeed Armor: The GodSpeed is a suit of Armor that Alex built when he realized his powers were beginning to kill him.

The Suits functions are: Armor retraction: Should any part of his armor be broken off, it can immediately be drawn back to GodSpeed from any distance, to the point where any broken off pieces can be telekinetically summoned back to the rest of the suit if it is close enough.

(This Character is a Total Work In Progress, I just wanted to have something up for him so I can still use him)

The Beginning.

The Time 2074, The Headquarters Of The League Of Darkness. (Location Unknown)

He is powerful.

His blade flashed in arcs, weaving through each blow. His body twisted and turned, no wasted movement, each step with a purpose. One by one, each assailant fell against his might; all, collectively or individually, unable to measure up to his strength.

The young red headed boy watched this display with rapture, captivated by the pure skill exhibited by the greatest and first assassin in the world: The Devil's Head.

Raysh Al Shaytan

His piercing gaze swept over him, taking in his ragged appearances and haggard face. Alex stood at one side, anxious and nervous, scared but determined.

“And what do you have to offer me? Why should I allow you into the service of the Devil's Head?”

Alex would look at everyone and he would hold his hand in the air

Speed Bent to his will...

Gasps were heard. Everyone stared Only Raysh looked composed, observing Alex's display with a critical eye.

“What else do you have to offer?"

The 7 year old boy would look up trembling slightly "I'm well versed in the medical field."

Murmurs broke out at that from the attending assassins. Medics were rare within the League, as only fitting in an organization where taking life was the primary method of operation. Preserving it, however? Those who had the will and skill to preserve life generally did not seek to enter a service where they would have to take it.

Raysh made a soft hum of approval, and then said softly "Anything else?"

Alex took a deep sigh, and met the eyes of the Devil’s Head. “Nothing but my loyalty. If that is enough for you, I will dedicate my life to your service, and to the League." Raysh observed him for the longest time. For a moment, they all could have sworn that the corners of his lips had twitched. It was gone, however, like the wind.

The Devils Head gave a short nod.

“You shall begin your training at once.”

He trains.

He is studied, poked and prodded, by League-affiliated scientists. They take Alex's word about the source of his powers and test it – and find it to be true.

Extracurricular training was a League mandate during the early twentieth century in response to the rapid changes the outside world was going through. Each recruit was required to develop their skills in a field outside of standard hand-to-hand combat and weaponry to better aid the League in their holy mission. Alex's extracurricular training was the development of his powers. Along with learning to control his speed, strength, and electrokinesis, he used his free time to discover any new powers he had. So far, he had learned he was able to phase through solid objects, had Aerokineis that would allow him to manipulate the winds at superspeeds, and had super senses, allowing him to react to almost any situation. Alex felt that he was only scratching the surface of what he was capable of.

Besides training his powers, Alex focused on his skills as a combatant, that way he would not be reliant on them should they ever be deactivated, and/or he was forced to face a combatant of equal strength or speed (no matter how unlikely it was). The League did not take things for granted, after all.

He also focused on academic nature. He was put under the tutelage of several of the League’s most prominent scholars and scientists, soaking up information like a sponge. Everyday his mind was swirling with some new material to study or another problem that needed to be solved. He was also called often to deal with some injury that someone had received, either during training or a mission, leaving his days full. Alex was well-acquainted with the other recruits as a result, and oftentimes found himself the go-between for recruits and full members of the League. When people needed a favor or someone to talk to, they went to him.

Talented in physical combat skills , he also exceled in his physical training, with his speed increasing exponentially, until there was no one faster at drawing a weapon and striking a person down than him. His preferred weapons were small daggers and knives, and he had no less than five on his body at any given time. He completely dedicated himself to training his body to its absolute peak, spending hours after official training sessions were over perfecting katanas and other techniques. And for more extracurricular training, Alex tried many things before it was found that he had a gift for languages. Once this was discovered, Alex was soon tutored by many members of the League, each a different ethnicity, for their respective language. All League recruits were required to know English and Arabic, but Alex had to learn not only the latter, but also Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, Spanish – basically every known language in the world, along with their dialects. It was a daunting task, but Alex tackled it with enthusiasm, happy to know that his value had increased, making it unlikely that he would be killed when graduation came should his skill not be satisfactory enough for admission into the League.

This continued for 8 years, until The Day came.

He kneels.

The Master speaks.

“You have proven yourself worthy of the title assassin, of undertaking our holy mission. Your former life is now forfeit, and you will be renamed, in service to the Devils Head. You may choose your own name, or I shall name you.”

Alex would gesture to his master and surrogate father.

“Your movements are quick and barely unseen. Your strikes, abrupt but effective. For this, you are “The Lightning”. I name you…Al Sa’iqa.”

Alex Walker was dead, and Al Sa’iqa nodded his head in thanks.
