'The Lightning' is a man of action, he is brazen and cocky. Like the pirates who inhabited the Tampa area 200 years ago, he is impetuous and unpredictable. He's feisty and fun and he is a natural ladies man with an in-your-face bravado. He is determined to save the world from harm, and wants to look good doing it. Physically he looks like a dashing young teenager complete with an electric blue Mohawk.  He wears a rubber suit, that resembles a wetsuit but far more durable, that insulates his electrical current and allows him to walk amongst others without burning them to a crisp.

He can move at the speed of lightning and can travel from place to place using power lines or any electrical current. At a moment’s notice he can summon lightning from the sky and harness its devastating energy.  He can focus electric lightning blasts from his fingertips and his internal electrical charge could light an entire blacked out city. His most devastating weapon however is what he calls his "Bolt Spear" which is essentially a highly energized lightning rod that he can create in the palm of his hand.
Quote of the Day

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
