Personality

After the tragic incident aboard the Space Shuttle Goliath, Ollie Franklin returned to Earth a different person, not just physically but mentally as well. He still suffers from intense survivor's guilt, blaming himself for the death of his crew because of his ill-advised choice to investigate the bizarre anomaly they detected on that fateful day. This deep depression combined with his radical physical changes eventually led to his divorce from his wife, further compounding his emotional troubles. The American finds it very difficult to live up to his public image as a patriotic hero and paragon, especially when he can sense that everyone increasingly views him with both awe and fear. In response, SCOPE has placed him on a highly addictive antidepressant cocktail of meds that includes a behavior-controlling compound to keep him in check. Lately, the American has noticed the very essence of his personality starting to change as if he were somehow evolving into someone or something else that is more than human and far superior. Every day he battles to hold on to his humanity even though he realizes that ultimately he has no control over this inevitable transformation.

Motivations

  • Guilt: The character is driven by a desire for redemption from sins from their past.
  • Responsibility: The character is burdened by the responsibility of their powers.

Complications

  • Outsider: Fears the loss of his humanity
  • Gruesome: Is viewed with both awe and fear by the general public

History

When Space Shuttle Goliath encountered an unknown anomaly in space in 1998, Commander Ollie Franklin's genetics and physiology were radically altered by exposure to cosmic radiation. As a result, he developed several Super Talents more powerful than anything previously seen on Earth.

Powers and Abilities

The American possesses unbelievable physical strength and is capable of lifting objects weighing up to 10,000 tons and has even lifted buildings off their foundations. His dexterity and coordination also exceed human norms. The American has the innate ability to fly at supersonic speeds up to 4,000 miles per hour. His body is exceptionally resistant to physical damage, and he can survive a trip into deep space (including reentry) without any form of protective space suit or oxygen supply. Finally, his eyes can emit a powerful and deadly laser-like blast beam capable of disintegrating and vaporizing targets.
