Chain Lightning is a super speedster. He doesn't know his speed limit, only that he has broken the speed of light, twice. Both times left him extremely exhausted and drained and resulted in him having no use of his power and several days of both eating and sleeping. He has vowed to only break that speed barrier if the life of the very universe is at stake.
Chain Lightning gained his powers in his late teens as a result of a chemical accident at his fathers refinery, Sterling Wonder, a chemical company that is second in the production of the world's additives and plastics, and a major competitor to Crey Industries. He was always an avid comic collector and when the accident happened, the last thing he saw was a copy of his favorite comic character, a certain scarlet speedster. He was expected to die but doctors were amazed when his body seemed to somehow recycle the chemical poisoning of his system.
Aaron later learned that his subconscious, reacting with what his conscious mind already knew, that death was imminent, took the new pollutants, and hyper accelerated his metabolism. He suddenly had the power of his favorite hero.
He can't run up the side of buildings, or along beams of light, but he has been able to pull off running across water, and he been known to lend his speed inertia to other objects.
