Super Group: H.O.P.E.
Bright and eager - a little naive due to inexperience. Determined to make his family proud and live up to his heritage.
Phonetix can project sounds as a weapon. This can be destructive or he can lull his opponents into a light doze.
Phonetix can "wrap" sonic energy around his fists for up-close melee confrontations. His punches can severly disorient opponents, send them flying back or knock them out.
Phonetix can travel at speeds slightly faster than the normal flier in Paragon City. The main thrust of his flight appears to be a low-level sonic pulse he generates.
Fair with computers
- Throat Lozenges - Soothes his throat.
- Handheld Medical device - Allows slight healing in the field of allies and himself
- Standard Comm Gear - Allows communication with allies and teammates
- Medical Teleporter Transponder - Should he fall in battle, teleports him the the nearest hospital
- Misc items in belt pouches.
Weaknesses and Limitations
Easily distracted. Hasn't been in the game long enough to know what will affect him negatively. Losing his voice is a concern - that is why he carries throat lozenges in his belt.
- Guruverse - A loose coalition of heroes - see CoHGuru.com
None at this time.
Will Poore has a lot to live up to. He grew up in a family of heroes. His paternal grandfather Jim Poore - the White Noise, his maternal grandmother - Madame Blu, his mother - Miss Mystic, his father - Grim Omen, his uncle - the Jolly Roger, his older sister - Jasmine. Will and his younger sister both began exhibiting powers at an early age. Their parents did everything they could to give their children as normal a life as possible, but when your son throws a temper tantrum and screams and yells with destructive power...it can be difficult to live the normal life.
His early life was filled with joy and wonder marred slightly by his grandmother's passing in her sleep. Slightly marred because Madame Blu was chiefly a telepath. She was able to say goodbye to everyone. Even as her touch was fading, Will was filled with a certainty that his grandmother was going to a better place.
As Will reached his early teens, his older sister had just been allowed to join the family business - teaming with their parents. They were just starting to get into this new team dynamic when the Rikti invasion began. By this time, Will's grandfather had retired and was living it up in a retirement home - chasing the nurses all over the place. The Poore family did the only right thing they could - every active hero in the family went to paragon city to prepare. Will and his younger sister, Jennifer, stayed behind in South Carolina with their Aunt Jessica, one of the few non-powered in the clan, and her husband John Smith.
Will and Jennifer followed the news closely for any information on their family. Not because they were worried, but anxious to hear of their exploits. When Hero1 gathered heroes to venture to the Rikti homeworld, the Poore family was among the first to join him. Sadly, we all know what happened to that expedition.
Will and Jennifer have vowed to find and save their family. To that end they have continued their training and more importantly - not succumbed to the bitterness and despair they witnessed other people fall into in the Rikti Invasion Aftermath.
Now Will has come of age. He has a costume. He has his newly minted Hero License. Now he must work to prepare...prepare for his venture through the portal to the Rikti homeworld.
Hopefully with allies - but alone if need be.
