From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
Surgepoint is known to be comical. He rarely seems to take the situation seriously, at least externally. He uses this laizzes-faire attitude to distract his foes and relieve tense situations with fellow heroes. However, he is also known to be over-confident bordering on hubris.
Surgepoint has had the mutant ability of enhanced reflexes since his teens, so far as he recalls. In normal conditions, he perceives his surroundings just like anyone else. In any other wide variety of situations involving danger, his perception sharpens drastically. He has described it as everything standing out, sounds do not muddle together, his field of vision widens, and even smells become identifiable. In addition, time itself seems to slow down to varying degrees. He cites "bullet time" as a similar effect.
Martial Arts Training
Action Surgepoint has been exposed to a wide variety of martial arts. In preparation for his movies, he would always study and practice the styles used by the character he played. Starting out as a hero, his repertoire was small and modest. Since then, he has trained with other heroes. Most notable of those are Mynx, Foreshadow, and Ms. Liberty. He is now a world-class martial artist.
Weaknesses and Limitations
If Action Surgepoint has any serious weaknesses, he has kept them well-hidden. However, it is possible to overstress his reflexes with a large enough volume of simultaneous attacks. He has been nearly overwhelmed in the past, but other heroes or simple luck were on his side. He is certainly not invincible.
Action Surgepoint uses no equipment, signature or otherwise. If the situation calls for it, he may carry situational items, but these are generally provided by his various contacts.
Action Surgepoint was once a popular action movie star in the same vein as Jean Claude Van Damme or Jet Li. At a young age, he learned of his enhanced reflexes and used the resulting athletic advantage to make stunts easier to perform. His popularity eventually made him a target to a rival actor who worked with the 5th Column. The 5th attempted an assassination, disguised as an on-set accident that would be publicly visible. The assassin took the role of a stunt rifleman, but with a loaded weapon instead of blanks. Surgepoint dodged the bullet intended for him, much to the assassin's surprise. After some convincing, the assassin revealed his role with the 5th. Angered that he was forced to reveal his abilities, and thus stain his reputation, Surgepoint tracked down the local 5th Column hideout. He discovered that the 5th planned to plant actors into Hollywood, and convert others, in order to influence American culture in their favor. He averted that plot, but now felt that he could not return to acting. He soon realized that his reflexes, coupled with his martial arts training, would make him an effective hero. He moved to Paragon City and began his career as Action Surgepoint.
