Background

Flashpoint was involved with the Iraq-Iran war during the 1980s and has managed to remain close to the changing governments over the years, shifting his allegiances but always having Iran's interests at heart. He is currently an advisor to the Defence Minister and regularly trains with the military, although he has refused to fully enter the political world. He is an advocate of anti-Israeli sentiment in the Middle East and, although he rarely speaks in public on the issue, he has been known to work closely with other Arab nations in the areas of training and anti-uber security.

On a personal level, Mohammad is now in his forties and has shown very little interest in his own private life.  There have been no stories of love interests or even family connections.  As he grows older this has begun to weigh on him, and although he considers it too late to reconnect with his family (he only has one brother still alive) he has thought of the possibility of marriage.  The super heroine, Veil, has aroused his interest and he has shown her considerable courtesy during their meetings.

 

Personality

Long considered an extension of the Iranian government, Flashpoint is a genuinely concerned man who believes that Iran is at the forefront of Arab solidarity against what he considers the aberrant greed of the West. He dislikes America and actively hates Israel, but he does so in the context that he believes their influences may endanger the life he lives in Iran, and the lives of those he has sworn to protect.

He is a staunch Muslim but has no time for extremists such as Fatwa who he has fought with at times. He generally works alone, but has teamed up with Five Pillars when the threat is severe enough. Interestingly, there has been little attention on other Iranian ubers; and this is something which troubles Flashpoint at times. Even though he has been close to governments over the past twenty years, he still has no idea whether the government has been hiding other cases of the ubergene. Mostly he convinces himself that the government would never hide such valuable assets, but there is a part of him which suspects foul play.

 

Quote

"Iran is a free country, the slave of no Western bully, and I am here to ensure that freedom."

 

Powers

Flashpoint is a powerful uberhuman who wields the energies of lightning and has been able to hone his skills through over ten years of government service. He is able to generate electricity in a variety of forms including ball lightning, forked lightning, and a stunning field of electrical current which is capable of rendering multiple opponents inert. He is also able to produce a taser-like energy which does no permanent damage but is able to knock out strong opponents, most notably Saladin of Fatwa.

Flashpoint is able to transform himself into living electricity for short periods which enables him to seemingly teleport over short distances of up to 100m. In addition to these flashy powers, he is also able to absorb large quantities of raw energy as well as generate a fierce electrical field which can protect him from harm.

 

Appearance

Flashpoint is a modest man who wears a simple black uniform to take attention away from the actual man and focus it on the larger than life actions. He works for the greater good of Iran and follows the directions of the government. His uniform is vaguely militaristic in appearance with thick-soled boots, black bodysuit with a half mask, hood and half-length cape. His hair is dark and cut very short, with silver streaks along the temples  He wears a beard and moustache which is also beginning to show signs of silver. He is rarely seen in public out of uniform, although he has a public identity. There are no images of Flashpoint in Iran, although some fans beyond the borders have photographs and posters with his likeness and these have become valuable items.
