T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agent - Lightning
Post before last I featured T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agent Dynamo. Next on the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. list is Lighting. Originally a member of the paramilitary Thunder Squad, Guy is given the opportunity to wear the Lightning suit. The suit has a built in "speed inducer beam system" with which he will be able to achieve speeds over 100 times that of the fastest human being. On the down side, the beam has a life-shortening effect that increases the faster the wearer moves. Of course Guy accepts the challenge and wears the Lightning suit to battle the bad guys. Over the course of the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. comics run he ages quite dramatically, but the suit seems to have a drug-like effect and he just can't give it up. Battling evil can be addicting. For Lighting I used a Toy Biz Daredevil figure, using small crystals for the ear pieces and cutting a piece of plastic for the goggles.
