Description: Lightning’s Hand is a powerful superhuman (or magician or elemental being), who commands various weather-related powers. He can fly at great speeds, project powerful bolts of electricity, and summon vast storms. He also can transform into the air itself, effectively turning in visible, and becoming undetectable by his enemies. Lightning’s Hand is fiercely protective of his domain (the sky) and won’t hesitate to destroy intruders. He’s also been known to summon destructive storms in fits of anger, and is generally feared by all who know of him.

Lightning’s Hand is off of the album Point Of Know Return, by the band Kansas. Although the character sheet presumes a human(oid) protagonist, the song may simply be the personification of storms and bad weather in general. The character sheet was made using the Energy Projector Template(s) found in Champions 5th Edition, combined with ideas from such sources as the UNTIL Super-Powered Database and the Ultimate Energy Projector. At 485 points, Lightning’s Hand is somewhat more powerful than your average superhero. Game Masters can easily trim that back by removing or reducing his Lightning Reflexes and Ranged Combat Skill Levels. If you want to make Lightning’s Hand an elemental (say a free-willed air elemental), I suggest adding in the proper powers from the HERO System Bestiary.
