Background

Miguel Laguardia looked at the phone in his hand and stared blankly at another rejection call from his agent. He had quit his job waiting tables, had cut ties with his grasping family, and had set out to conquer the world of television soaps. But even though he had a capable agent, who was also a hottie in Miguel's barely post-pubescent eyes. At twenty-one he had expected to take the world by storm, but all he had managed was a thirty second commercial in his underwear and a bit part in a Chilean documentary.

It wasn't fair.

Outside it began to snow. Inside the small apartment it was also snowing, but Miguel was too caught up in his recent knockback to notice. The landlady knocked on his door, barged in as she always did and quickly crossed herself before rushing away from the snow-covered room. Miguel snapped out of his reverie and looked around his white-capped room. A glass of water by his bedside was frozen. He stood up and walked to the window and stared wide-eyed at the street below which was now covered in a thin layer of snow.

It was early Spring. It shouldn't have been snowing.

Miguel made his way through the trials of a young actor, gradually gaining more recognition amongst the networks, but he wasn't so worried about television roles because he was living his life on the biggest screen of all - Real Life. He had decided to become a super hero, to defeat crime and defend the beautiful women of Buenos Aires.

All started well, with favourable reports in the media, but Miguel got tired of petty crimes. He longed for a challenge, and decided he needed to face off against a real, larger than life super villain. It was just his luck that Horacio Barrionueve had returned to the city from a successful crime spree in Mexico, and couldn't resist a lightning strike against one of Argentina's beleaguered banks. Miguel was only blocks away from the crime scene, and made his appearance even before the police had arrived.

He found Horacio, who was known as the Blue Bandit, sitting at the front of the bank sipping a coffee. There were three bags of loot at his feet, and it seemed that the Blue Bandit was a little arrogant. Miguel leapt into the fray and demanded that Horacio return the money. Horacio smiled at the younger man and offered him a seat. Miguel froze him to the seat instead. Without worrying too much, Horatio began to talk to Miguel of his adventures in Mexico.

When the police arrived they manhandled Miguel out of the way, treating him like some annoying bystander, and Miguel felt resentment rise in his body, even as the temperature dropped. Within seconds, the police officers were frozen in large chunks of ice and Miguel was carrying a laughing Horacio towards the sunset.

Years passed and Miguel's tandem careers of actor and anti-hero have soared, most notably in Argentina where he is considered an urban hero. He steals money, accepts mercenary assignments, but takes time to give back to the poor community. As Hit and Run, Miguel and Horacio have managed to earn the respect of their communities at the same time as the anger of the law enforcement agencies.

Personality

Miguel enjoys watching himself, whether it's on the evening news, an afternoon soap or in a passing mirror. He loves being the centre of attention, particularly in situations where he can indulge his obsession of checking out the opposite sex. He is an intrepid night clubber, in his secret and public identity, and often takes home multiple girls on any given night. He loves the publicity and the fact that the police can never catch him, but he is also careful to protect and build upon his positive reputation among the 'fans'.

Quote

“Ooh, it's getting cold in here.”

Powers

Miguel is a cryokinetic, able to manipulate temperature and in particular water particles in the air. He is able to create ice, reduce the temperature in a 100m radius and also create a 'cool air field' which enables him to fly as well as providing him with a rigid field for protection against most attacks. His body is constantly regulated so he is never too hot or too cold, although in the past he has shown a vulnerability to opponents utilising fire and heat-based attacks.

Appearance

Miguel is an olive-skinned man with well defined muscles and an attractive presence which he utilises well in his acting career. His hair is dark and curly and his eyes are brown, although they flash with flecks of green and gold when he is excited. In costume, Run wears a patriotic costume of aqua and white, including gloves and a mask to protect his identity. Out of uniform, Miguel wears fashionable and expensive clothes, usually following the latest trends.
