Mad Jack

The Vitruvian Man

In high school, Victor Trava is an extremely bright 15 year old boy with only very few friends. Being an overweight and unathletic kid with an above-average IQ, he is a social outcast and a favorite target for bullies. But when school is over, he becomes the superhero „Vitruvian“ – a grown man who represents the pinnacle of human development and perfection.


Victor has complete control over his body on a cellular level and is able to manipulate the stem cells stored in his body (thus the overweight) at will. This way he can increase his physiological maturity and transform his somatic cells into any kind of body tissue such as muscle, skeleton, and hair in order to instantly grow into an adult man whose bodily functions are augmented to the maximum limit of human condition.

As the Vitruvian, his natural capabilities are near-superhuman and therefore his strength, speed, stamina, senses, agility, reflexes, accuracy, longevity, durability, intelligence, healing time, flexibility and combat skills are greatly heightened. He is strong enough to break thin steel bars with his bare hands, fast enough to outrun moving vehicles, agile enough to climb the tallest of buildings as well as to leap to high feats into the air and distant yards, reflexive enough to quickly dodge incoming attacks, durable enough to withstand superhuman physical attacks, untiringly enough to physically exert himself to peak capacity, flexible enough to coordinate his limbs perfectly, and much more.

The total control over his body cells and tissues includes the ability of genetic alterations and physical distortion, which means that, if necessary, he can also grow additional appendages and body-parts, change his appearance and physical features, modificate his density/weight, and even rearrange his own internal organs and alter their functions.
