Rant Over, Back To Supers

It certainly felt good to get that last post off my chest.  It's also nice to know I'm not the only one who feels that way.  Here's another superhero I rolled up tonight.

Zachary I Peterson (never Zach and always with the middle initial) suffered from epilepsy since early childhood.  As he aged, the seizures grew in severity until not only his quality of life destroyed but his chances of living to see his twentieth birthday were almost nil.  Desperate, his parents enrolled him in an experimental project at EUREKA under the auspices of Doctor Cereberus, the Science Dog.  in a groundbreaking twenty hour surgery, the Canine Einstein implanted a series of microprocessors along Zachary's nervous system.  When activated via an external control that could be worn on his belt, the seizures vanished completely.

With one small side effect.  Zachary found himself overwhelmed by an influx of sensory data.  He became hyper-aware of his surroundings.  What's more, his body seemed to run at the speed of thought.  He found he could run at speeds up to 60 mph, and that his body rebounded from injury at an incredible rate.

So, of course, he had to become a superhero.  And thus Zip! was born.
