    Here’s a character I made a little more than a year ago.

    An electrician and mechanic who suffered major paralysis in his arms and hands after a terrible accident in the warehouse where he worked. He was given a second chance when an organization reached out to him. They used an ancient magical book to grant him superhuman abilities and heal his ailments. He agreed to join their cause

    Middle. The only thing known is that she absorbs latent electricity from the surrounding areas, and uses it to execute her targets after stabbing them with her blade fan.

    Everett Moray was workingat a marine Wildlife institute when he accidentally fell into a tank full of Electric Eels. He was repeatedly electrocuted, stunning him into unconsciousness, and then bitten dozens of times. The enzymes an bacteria translated by the eel’s bites reacted with his latent mutant genes and transformed his physiology.

    He became able to swim at increased speeds far beyond those of any human. He could now breath underwater for several hours through vestigal gills behind his ears. Lastly he became able to generate electricity and discharge it by touch or fire bolts over short distances.

    Over time he designed and had built a custom suit and helmet which helped his ability to maneuver underwater.

    The Gage
    Pr. Samantha Edmond was a professor and researcher at a high-tech university. Unfortunately, things went sideways when it was discovered she had a relationship with a student. Forced out of the university and disgraced she had to find another way to continue her research. Without the resources of the university her experiments went sideways and an accident that gave her incredible powers. Now she uses her power to fight for good.

    Is there any chance you’d be willing to reupload the app to the HM3 page so that those of us with devices that can’t handle running it locally can still use it with a browser-based flash emulator?

    An alien Entity made completely of electrical energy had been trapped in a ancient Greek temple of Zeus for thousands of years. When Dr Patrica Farrow freed the entity from his prison he wanted to show his gratitude by protecting the planet and providing resistance to the powers that threatened its people . Now known as Ohms he is able to create modular body parts through modern tech that Dr Farrow provides.
