From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
Jason Coopard was born a mutant out in the San Fransico valley. As he grew older his metabolisim speed up, granting him great dexterity and super-human speed. When he left home, he moved east, hitting a few cities along the way: Metropolis, Philadelphia, Gotham, New York, and eventually settling in Paragon City.
Jason is starting to become a frustrated soul. He sees the hero community unable to remove the criminal element from the streets of Paragon City permanently. Villains he put away himself only seem to return with more frequency than ever before. He is starting to doubt the effectiveness and need for the Justice system.
More than anything, Jason is getting frustrated with the mutant situation in Paragon City. While heroes are treated with respect in Paragon City, the growing mutant population still is treated as second class citizens. While he can understand some of the fears of normal humans, what is the difference between someone born with super powers compared to someone who gained them through a freak accident? Should the freak accident be more of a fearful thought? But the world treats that case the opposite. People like Statesman, who gained his powers by a mystical accident, someone who did not have born into them an innate understanding of his powers, are admired, while mutants are scorned. The mutant is born with innate control and understandings, while these humans who gain powers have to learn, sometimes at great cost to the people around them, how to control those powers. The world, in Jason's eyes, is very unfair.
Because of his growing agitations, he tends to be a little harsher in his dealing with villains. He lets his frustrations out on criminals. Sadly, he is starting to snap at normal people too. While he has never hit or attacked a Paragon citizen, he is starting to be very rude and visibly holding his anger back. Something is going to break soon in Jason if he can not get a grip on his feelings.
Orange Blur's primary superhuman power is the ability to run, move and think at superhuman velocities. Orange Blur is able to run at speeds of at least 175 miles per hour. Moving at such a high rate makes him appear as little more than a blur over short distances.
Orange Blur's agility, reflexes, balance and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits and capabilities of the finest human specimen.
His mutation has rendered his musculature much more efficient than that of a normal human. As a result, his muscles produce considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activities. At his peak, Orange Blur can exert himself for up to 24 hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair his capabilities.
His cardiovascular and respiratory systems are many times more efficient than those of a normal human being. He metabolizes an estimated 95% of the caloric energy content of foodstuffs (normal human use is about 25%).
The tissues of Orange Blur's mutant body are tougher, more resilient and more resistant to certain forms of physical injury than those of a normal human. His body is particularly adapted to resist the natural rigors that moving at such extreme velocities would have on a normal human. His joints are smoother and lubricated more efficiently than those of a normal human being. His tendons have the tensile strength of spring steel. His bones contain unknown materials significantly more durable than calcium to withstand the dynamic shocks of his feet touching the ground at speeds a human could never achieve or withstand. Orange Blur is also more resistant to impact trauma than a normal human. He can withstand impacts, such as falling from several stories or being repeatedly struck with superhuman force, which would severely injure or kill a normal human while sustaining little to no injury himself.
Orange Blur's super speed has granted him a very peculiar power: being able to vibrate his molecular structure at high speeds. He has demonstrated the full effect which enables him to destabilize atomic matter by accelerating its molecules often causing it to fall apart or explode usually by touching it. His control is very localized, so the area of effect is where he is able to touch an object. He uses this power to "enhance" his punches in a number of ways.
Orange Blur's physical strength has been greatly augmented to levels beyond that of most humans. While not qualifying as superhuman, Orange Blur is as physically strong as a human can naturally be without be categorized as superhuman. At his peak, Orange Blur is able to lift up to 800 lbs.
Orange Blur is able to use his highly developed leg muscles to leap great distances. With momentum, he is capable of leaping roughly 30 yards. With greater speed, he might be able to achieve longer distances.
Jason has excellent legal knowledge, particularly pertaining to Human and Civil Rights. While not a licensed lawyer, he performs legal advice and actions for the Mutant community he cares for.
Weaknesses and Limitations
Orange Blur's lachrymose is more viscous than normal, thus preventing rapid evaporation and replenishment of surface fluids on his eyeballs under the influence of high wind velocity to occlude his vision. But this physical mutation does not seem to be keeping up with his growing speed. He finds that he needs the use of goggles when running at his top speed to run in comfort.
