Background

"Omega Force's resident speedster and prankster. The Bullet possesses mutant power of superspeed. He talks very quickly, and often allows his tongue to run ahead of his brain, his frequent spoonerisms are a running gag on the show. On the more serious side, Christopher Lucas's mutant powers are burning his body out. Not using his powers would halt the advance of the problem, but Christopher knows that Omega Force needs the Bullet. When not selflessly fighting to save the world, Christopher searches the world over for a cure." ('Fatal Attractions', page 48)

Scottish actor, Hamish Scott Brannagh is the second man to take the role of the Silver Bullet and replaced Johnny Schultz in the second season after Schultz became too demanding. Brannagh was the first non-American on the show and has been acting since he was a child on various English programmes such as 'Doctor Who', 'The Bill' and a television version of 'The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe' where he played Peter. He has also appeared in three feature films: "The Ivory Hunter", "Long Summer" starring opposite Oscar-winner Vanessa Redgrave; and the science fiction film "Shroud" for which he was recommended to the producers of 'Save Our World' to replace Schultz.

Brannagh moved to the States and has become something of a party animal, rivaling Nathan Dawson as the show's sex symbol. In late 2006 Brannagh 'came out' at an award's ceremony and after some initial shock, the fans of the show seem to have accepted the fact that The Bullet is gay. Writers have since written the Silver Bullet's own coming out story which was well received by the audience.

Coming out has not stopped Brannagh's outrageous party trail, however, and he has been linked on several occasions to illicit drug use - nothing which has stuck, of course.

Personality

Hamish Scott Brannagh was a child actor who has literally come out of his shell since arriving in America. His popularity has surprised him, but also liberated him, allowing him to cast off pressures of conformity. He believes (and has said on many occassions) that he is a role model for all young people who just don't want to conform anymore. He parties hard and has shown a keen interest in associating with uberhumans and other heroes.

Powers

The Silver Bullet is the fastest man on the planet, able to run faster than human eyes can see which enables him to simply vanish if needed. The show hasn't spent much time exploring his powers and he essentially runs very fast. Most of the time the Bullet is there to provide comic relief, although there have been several episodes of introspection focusing on the Bullet's slow degeneration. Some critics of the show have suggested that the Bullet's deterioration is a metaphor for HIV, although the character subplot predates Brannagh's (and the Bullet's) 'coming out'.

Appearance

The Silver Bullet wears a tight grey jumpsuit which is otherwise unremarkable. When he moves at superspeed he leaves behind a silvery trail.

Brannagh is a lithe man with a six pack and flawless California-tanned skin. He wears his hair longish in the back which he sometimes wears in a pony tail, but prefers to leave loose. Off the studio Brannagh wears whatever is fashionable and hardly anything more than once. He pays attention to the newest trends and spends a lot of time in nightclubs to see what is new and what is old.
