Omega Joule's powerbelt lets him fire blasts of differing magnitudes of electricity at his foes. If he uses the correct setting he can set a field around himself draining energy from technological foes.
This same powerbelt feeds a powersurge to his gauntlets allowing him to use devastating melee attacks
His power belt enables Omega Joule to run at extreme speeds approaching Mach 5
Omega Joule is too young to really have any more special abilities than surfing the web, editing his myspace page and generally loafing around when he is not out fighting the good fight.

Jonas Whitleby came from a very influential and rich background. He grew up in a household (ok several households) where his slightest whim was granted to him. His mother had passed away several years ago and his father had never settled down again. He seemed content to "play the field." As such, he left the raising of his son up to the hired help. It was from the old maternal maid that he learned of any morals, from the crochety butler how to stand up for himself.
On his 18th birthday, Jonas announce to his father that he was not going to school for a business degree and then follow his footsteps in the family business. Jonas wanted to join the military and stand for something. Fight for something. Prove that he was more than a spoiled, rich brat. His father was furious. After much yelling and arguing, Jonas fled to his wing of the estate.
The next day, Jonas snuck into town and found out just how influential his father was. No recruiter would sign him up. All calls he made to any division were rejected. As he wondered throughout the city, he came upon a Pawnshop dealing specifically with articles for budding heroes. Jonas headed in, not expecting to find anything worthwhile. Then he saw it, buried under a pile of bent magic wands and tarot decks - a slightly scuffed metal belt. Jonas felt a jolt run up his hand as he picked the belt up. He found the Enercell logo engraved on the inside. Jonas took the belt to the cashier and was informed that the belt once belonged to the heroine Sparkz. Along with the belt, Jonas picked up a white and yellow bodysuit and helmet. He figured the helmet would help conceal his identity from his father.
He has let his father think he has won and goes to school. But that is only a cover. He dons the bodysuit, snaps the powerbelt in place, and sets the helmet on his head. He fights the good fight whereever it may be. All the while keeping his father in the dark.
He fights the good fight. He protects and saves lives. He has joined other heroes with an electrical bent named Don't Whiz on the Electric Fence. Together they are a force to be reconned with. Taking down Babbage in record time, defeating large masses of villains at once. Individually, strong - Together, unbeatable.
