Name: Jack Alworth
Superhuman elasticity/plasticity, malleability: Jack can make his body become a rubber-like substance and can stretch all parts of it to insanely long lengths. This can range from limbs to fingers, feet and neck. This ability also allows him to squeeze through extremely tiny spaces such as cracks in walls and floors. He can also expand his body like a balloon for the purpose of catching falling people or absorbing hits from larger opponents. This power grants him very strong resistance to bludgeoning and piercing damage.
In combat Jack's main method for battle is restraining his opponents by wrapping around them like a snake and constricting them. He can also throw elongated punches and kicks to hit foes from a distance. Jack can also perform some shape-changing, but at his current level of skill with his powers he can only take a few shapes such as cube or tree.
Weaknesses: he is very weak to heat and cold attacks.
Skills/abilities: He is very skilled in the field of chemistry and engineering. He likes to be more hands on than sitting in a study room reading a book.
Bio: Jack was born to a working class family in the Midwestern city of Buckeye Ohio. His dad worked in a printing factory, which wasn't the greatest job, but it kept food on the table and paid the bills. Though take your kid to workday was rather boring for Jack. His early childhood years were a little lonely since he had trouble socializing with other kids thanks to have anxiety.
While he was in elementary school Jack was a bit of an outcast and only had one friend who was a boy named Charlie. The two hanged out, but Charlie was more of the studying hard type while Jack was the curious and experimental kind of boy who liked to test theories of his.
Things got a little better when he went to high school and he had fixed most of his anxiety problems and found it easier to socialize. One of his tricks was being a bit of a joker, which for him was good at defusing anxiety building up inside him. It was also in high school where developed his skill in chemistry and engineering.
However it was high school where his life would change permanently. About three months into his freshmen year at George Washington High, Jack's metahuman powers activated and he discovered that he had the power to stretch and bend his body like it was rubber.
at first he used his new found gifts for practical jokes and pranks, but eventually he realized that he could use these powers for good and he created a costume and took on the name Polymer. He now is trying to fight crime with his powers all the while hoping to keep it a secret from his parents.
Eventually his dad got a job in Los Angeles and he transferred to a school in their new home. It some time getting use to and he missed his old friends and schoolmates, but he would manage. Also LA meant that he would get a chance to meet other heroes like himself and maybe learn some things about fighting crime.
