Sonic the Hedgehog — The Blue Blur

You're too slow! Love him or hate him, Sonic is one of the fastest beings alive, rolling around at the speed of sound (got places to go, gotta follow my rainbow!). We'll try and build him up using the Super Powers Companion.

Sonic is a standard 4-Color hero with Super Karma, sitting at a clean 55 Power Points. Despite his size, he is very much a thrill seeker, fighting baddies because it's as fun as it is right. His golden heart and unmatchable spirit makes him a threat to any evil-doers, and he'll poke fun at them the whole time.

He is surprisingly tough, even considering his stature. Always cool under pressure, he can rip through robots in the blink of an eye with a smile on his face. He used to own a biplane (for unknown reasons) which he has given to his best friend Tails.

The only homebrew element here is the Can't Swim Hindrance, which means the character will begin to sink by his second round in any water, whether it be a pool or a raging storm. It also means he cannot take the Swimming skill.

There you have the Blue Blur! Questions and comments below, as usual.
