Wade Wilson Jr.

Post by MegaChess-a-Tron on Sat Aug 01, 2015 9:31 pm

World: POWERS
Name: Wade Wilson Jr.
Age: 15
Position: Overseer of the Centurions
Appearance: Wade is a rather good-looking young man. While not exactly traditionally "macho", his blue-eyed, cleanly shaven face is undeniably handsome, and his physique is lean and athletic - the result of years of training and physical activity. It's true that he doesn't exactly look like a bodybuilder, but that usually doesn't stop girls from wanting to be with him and guys from wanting to be him, at least in terms of appearance. While he does have several small scars on his body, all of them can be concealed under clothing. His hair is well-kempt, short and tidy, and his clothes are practical and easy to perform various physical activities in.

Backstory: Wade's family has a rather peculiar history. His father was a soldier serving under the Canadian Army, and his mother was a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force. While the Army and the Air Force generally had little to no contact, the two of them met during a joint military exercise in the late 1970s and hit it off pretty quickly, discovering that they were the only people they knew who were into comic books. At their dates, they spent many hours talking about the night Gwen Stacy died, Green Arrow catching his sidekick Speedy doing drugs and Wolverine's fight against the Hulk. They just couldn't get enough of each other! There was also the fact that he was good-looking and disciplined, and she was an amazing pilot and an even better cook (as they say, the path to a man's heart is through his stomach), so in 1980 they decided to get married. Only two years later, their first child was born - a daughter they decided to name Angela. They loved her to bits, pampering her and spoiling her rotten. She was their little princess, and she acted like one. Little Angela never took no for an answer, always had to have it her way even when it wasn't rational. She demanded the most expensive clothes, the most high-quality make-up, even her underwear was priced in triple digits. She truly was their little angel, in every sense of the word.

Unfortunately, things were too good to last. In 1997, Angela's father was shot in the leg during an operation, forever ruining his career as a soldier and cutting off almost half of the family's income. While the Canadian government did pay welfare to the veteran, it wasn't nearly enough to support the family, and he also couldn't get a job because he lacked college education and his injury prevented him from doing any hard labor, at least not until it healed completely, which was going to take years. While they weren't exactly going in the red, they needed to cut down on the excessive spending. Angela wouldn't have it, though. She'd grown quite comfortable with her posh life and wanted nothing else but to continue living like a princess. And when her family couldn't afford it, she simply found herself someone who could. At fifteen, she started a relationship with an American businessman temporarily residing in Canada, and when it was time for him to return to the States she decided to go with him. Her parents failed to stop her, and that would be the last time they ever saw her.

Two years later, in 1999, her mother found out that she was missing her period. Soon enough, her fears were confirmed - she'd accidentally gotten pregnant with a second child, which neither parent wanted, as they were devastated by how their first one had turned out. But they ultimately decided to keep the baby, seeing it as a second chance to raise a child right. That child was Wade, who was born on January 1st, 2000 - a millennial baby. Ever since his early childhood he was taught discipline - he was never given anything unless he earned it. Praise by the kindergarten teacher gave him sweets. Overcoming his fears, such as the one from the dark, got him presents. When he was acting out, things were taken away, and absolutely no compromises were made. By the time he was four, while his snotty peers were crying and pulling at their mothers' skirts, Wade was taught to behave and be almost entirely self-sufficient, as much as that was possible for a child his age. But then things took a sharp turn sideways.

In 2004, Wade Sr. received a call from Angela - the first one since she ran off. Angela apologized for everything, saying that she'd made the biggest mistake of her life and that she just wanted to get home, but had a debt to pay to a mobster who'd kill her if she didn't. Her father immediately offered to wire her some money, but she refused, begging him to come give them to her in person. Despite the fact that the Wilsons had disowned their daughter to he point where Wade didn't even know she existed, her father agreed to take a plane to the US and pick her up, bringing the cash with him. When he got to the place she'd specified, though (which was a cheap motel room), he found something horrifying - his daughter's body. But she hadn't been killed, at least not by some loan shark. She'd died from complications after giving birth all on her own. The man quickly figured out that Angela, unable to look at her parents in the eyes, orchestrated this scheme in order to make sure her baby could have a good life, possibly intending to get away and leave the child for her father to find before succumbing to internal bleeding. After contacting the police and settling the story with the authorities, the father went back home to Canada and introduced Wade to his niece Elena... And also to his late sister.

As the children grew up, it became clear that both of them were quite intelligent, but in very different ways. Wade wasn't school-smart - his grades were always a little bit below average in most subjects (with only a few that were interesting to him, such as history, getting higher marks), but on the other hand he had a knack for practical knowledge. In other words, if asked what the square root of a number was, he probably wouldn't be able to respond, but if asked what shape a three-dimensional figure would have if unfolded, he'd answer immediately. On the other hand, Elena was a sponge for knowledge, even as a little kid. She quickly learned and mastered all kinds of skills almost effortlessly, being able to beat her father at chess when she was only three years old. While Wade was a pretty remarkable kid himself, he was absolutely overshadowed by his little niece in practically every way.

In 2006, Wade's father finally found employment again when he became one of the founding members of CANSOFCOM (Canadian Special Operations Forces Command) when it was founded in 2006, joining them as a drill sergeant meant to keep the (already rather elite) spec ops soldiers into shape in between assignments. Using his newly acquired skills, in 2008 he began training Wade as well, deeming him old enough to be physically fit and know how to defend himself. That's when the boy's true talent began to shine. At school, he was a relatively unremarkable kid in both grades and physical exercises, but at home, under the tutorship of his father, he found himself running distances that would've given an adult a heart attack and lifting weights that would have been impossible for an eight year old, even going as far as to dislocate his shoulder once when attempting to lift his father's car out of some mud it was stuck in (though he still managed to do it). It quickly became the norm within the family that Ellie was the one with the brains and Wade was the one with the brawn. The children often shared their knowledge - Wade showed his niece how to fight and she taught him observational skills, how to truly "see" and make quick deductions based on what he saw.

Under the guidance of his father, Wade quickly grew into a rather confident young man. Sure, he wasn't the kid with the best grades around, but his newly discovered skills allowed him to do better than ever at sports, joining the school's soccer team and quickly becoming the star athlete. This, alongside his good looks, quickly earned him popularity and fangirls - what else could a 10 year old want? While up until that point he'd been perfectly self-sufficient, standing by himself in school with nothing but the occasional comic book, once his sports career really shot off Wade began turning into a bit of a jock. He never really bullied anyone, but he did begin hanging out with the popular kids and dismissed the "nerds" - despite the fact that he'd been part of them until very recently. Everyone wanted to be friends with Wade, to the point where he got invited to at least one birthday party every week. He quite enjoyed his fame, as any kid would, but still realized perfectly well that if it wasn't for his sports skills and his good looks he wouldn't have been nearly as liked. Still, he didn't mind that, and decided to ride the wave for as long as it lasts... Which wasn't very long.

In 2012, 8 year old Ellie never came back from school. According to the teachers, she simply never showed up for her last two classes, not giving anyone - be it friend or teacher - an explanation about where she went. The security cameras showed her leaving the school alone, but the trail got cold pretty quickly. A nation-wide alert was raised for the young girl, with news outlets showing her picture every day. Her grandparents used their connections in the military to get their support in the search, but it was useless. Her newly bought computer was also searched for chatlogs and any other clues that could point to a perpetrator or her location, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary. It was as if the eight year old girl had just vanished from the face of the Earth. This event completely shattered the Wilsons. While Wade was never really that close with his niece, her sudden and unexplained absence, and the knowledge that she was probably either dead or as good as dead, tore him apart. A month later, the alert and the searches were called off, and Elena Wilson was pronounced legally dead. Less than a year later, Wade's parents got a divorce, with Wade choosing to live with his father in order to continue his training, feeling that now he needed it more than ever.

His niece's disappearance brought out certain emotions in the young boy that he never knew were there - sorrow, grief and also unbelievable rage. The thirteen year old boy, who by that point had quit the soccer team, would often feel strong fits of anger, which he satisfied by sneaking out of his house late at night and picking fights with random teenagers, which he then beat to a pulp. Thanks to his fast metabolism, what few bruises and injuries he sustained during those fights disappeared by the morning, meaning that his father never even found out about it. Those fights taught him what his military dad never could - how to fight dirty, and how to truly exploit the weaknesses of the human body in order to win at any cost.  During the day, Wade would revert back to his quiet, withdrawn persona from his childhood, and during the night (not every night, but at least 2-3 nights a week) he'd go out to fight with whoever was around, often using his observational skills in order to provoke random strangers into attacking him by telling them just the wrong things. This continued for about two years, until Wade's Fight Club adventures finally led to their climax, and the teen he had angered turned out to be a metahuman with "firework" powers (the ability to shoot colorful beams that had roughly the impact of a real firework, with some resulting in a very real explosion).

Their fight was branded by the colorful lights of his opponent, attracting dozens of onlookers, most of which recorded it on their phones. The lightshow lasted for about 15 minutes, forcing Wade to stay on his toes and use literally every trick in the book in order to win. He used his environment to his advantage, lured the opponent around, and eventually managed to land the blow that knocked Mr. Firework out, ending the fight. Soon afterwards, both of them, especially Wade, turned into online celebrities, adored by a public that had recently become fascinated with superpowers, but also scared of them and in need of reassurance that ordinary people could still hold their own against a potential metahuman threat. While Wade was, in fact, a metahuman, there was no way to really know that from the video, and his feats were seen as a symbol of the ordinary man's fight against the metahuman. Unbeknownst to him, the clip was also seen by Kuriko Hatsuhara, who would become the principal of the Tyler Jacobson Academy for superpowered individuals. Seeing a (seemingly) ordinary person defeat a meta with flashy powers in a fair light was what gave her the idea for the Sentinel program - using non-powered (or pragmatically powered) people against metahuman threats. As soon as the academy opened its doors, both Wade and Mr. Firework received orders to join it.

In all honesty, Wade felt kind of reluctant to join at first. His self-confidence all but gone in the years following the disappearance of his niece, the young man thought he wasn't really good enough to be a part of a school full of extraordinary people... But then again, it wasn't exactly an invitation. Upon joining, Wade was made part of the Seninels, where he quickly proved his prowess as a hand to hand combatant, and his pragmatic and observational skills came into great use. He wasn't exactly the greatest soldier of the 21st century, but thanks to his training, his discipline and natural leadership skills were way beyond those of his peers. But while the Sentinels appeared to be coming along just fine, the Centurions weren't doing so hot. They lacked any sort of self-restraint or order, making conducting classes almost impossible. To deal with these issues, Ms. Hatsuhara decided to reassign Wade from the Sentinels to the Centurions, making him an Overseer - a prefect, of sorts. That way, he could inspire some discipline among the Centurions without wasting his time learning skills he already had. And that's where his story truly begins.

Powers: Wade's primary powers are an increased strength, agility, stamina and reflexes. His body has reached and even in some areas exceeded the natural human limit when it comes to physical capabilities. He can run 100 meters in about 10 seconds, can catch an arrow show at him from mid-air and can really lift about as much as his bones can handle before breaking (about 300 kilograms with both arms, and while he can lift more, he does so at risk to his body). Overall, while he doesn't have any extraordinary abilities, his body is naturally at the peak of physical perfection, allowing him to perform feats that would've taken ordinary people a lifetime to master. As a direct result of his agility and stamina, his metabolism is also greatly increased, allowing him to heal about two or three times more quickly than average, though it's very important to note that his healing factor can't heal fatal wounds or perform miracles such as reattach severed limbs or readjust bones. His metabolism requires a lot of food at frequent intervals in order to sustain itself, and if Wade goes for a while without eating he begins to get tired. In addition to his metahuman abilities, Wade has also learned several skills. One of them is the power of observation - he's got a near-Sherlockian level of observation that allows him to deduce multiple things about his opponent at a glance, including, but not limited to, strengths, weaknesses, old wounds, elements of their backstory, etc. Of course, he's not a mind reader, so he can only really guess things that his opponent makes obvious (even in some small way) through their appearance and words. Wade is also an expert hand-to-hand fighter - a skill greatly enhanced by his naturally increased agility and reflexes. While he hasn't been trained in any particular martial art, chances are that in a close quarters fight, even against multiple opponents armed with close-range weapons, he'll ultimately come out on top. His biggest weakness is that, biologically speaking, he's still human, and is thus vulnerable to everything that humans are (while some other metas have certain immunities). As such, a metahuman opponent would have an advantage over him and require Wade to think outside the box in order to defeat them.

Personality: If one had to describe Wade with one word, the ideal one would be "soldier". He's highly disciplined, valorous, dauntless and always willing to do whatever it takes to protect those less privileged than him. He's an excellent leader who always knows how to motivate his team, keep them together and lead them in a way that utilizes their strengths to compensate for their weaknesses. He's as straight as an arrow can be, perfectly willing to give his life if it means he can save other people's. While he doesn't believe in loyalty to his country, his school or anything subjective like that, he's certainly very loyal to the people he trusts and would never, ever betray their trust. On a more personal level, Wade tends to be rather humorless, believing that maintaining his image as someone that the Centurions can look up to is impossible if he shows any sign of possessing a fun side. That doesn't really win him any points on the friendship meter, though, as most students view him as more of a leader/teacher than one of their peers despite the fact that he is only 15. As a result, Wade mostly lives a life of solitude without anyone he can really call a friend in the true sense of the world. Ironically, while there's plenty of people he'd lay down his life for, there aren't an awful lot that would invite him out for a beer. Ironically, deep beneath the surface, Wade is actually a really fun guy with an impeccable sense of humor, but he believes that this quality of his is undesirable considering his role within the school, so he often keeps it suppressed. Whenever he goes into a situation, his first instinct is to ask himself "What would Superman or Captain America do?" and go with that.

All in all, an excellent application. Well thought out, a good idea and sufficient balance of power and weakness to allow a "realistic" first addition to World POWER! There are a couple of concerns however: first being the fact that it is never explicitly stated if Wade is a meta or not. While the general implication is that he IS a meta, and his power provides him with substantially advanced metabolic rate and extreme physical prowess, there are a few sentences that throw it off ("he is biologically human", "he doesn't have any extraordinary abilities"), especially in the final couple of lines at the bottom of the "powers" section that seem to suggest that fighting any other meta would be difficult.

Grammar is consistent, with only one imperfection spotted: "undeniable handsome".
