Personality:

Miguel can be a bit of a mediator, in certain situations he's been known to prevent open conflicts by coming up with win-win solutions, or at the least providing good reasoning against such conflicts. However, he is no 'Bench sitter' & is willing to fight for what he believes is right & just. He is open minded, considerate & intuitive; especially when it comes to assessing situations he may find himself in.

His mind tends to carry him away, becoming easily distracted & sometimes darting from one thought to the next, this is mostly due to his mutation. It also means he can become easily bored of things & have a little attention span, but usually he does remain focused when it comes to serious situations or topics. He can be quite adaptable & able to adjust plans of action during the moment.

Miguel is sometimes self conscious, anxious & uptight especially around new people or those he knows disapprove of him. If he dislikes someone he can be snappy, sharp tongued & sarcastic in tone; Though due to being a bit of a mediator it's very rare theirs someone who he dislikes enough to bring such a side out in him.

HISTORY

 

Character History:

Miguel's Father was a member of a terrorist organisation known as the Legion of Living Lightning, the group made a misguided move to attempt to control the Hulk, in the failed attempt Miguel's Father was killed along with most members of the legion. Miguel was around the age of Fifteen at the time, he himself misguided idolised his Father. This led to him at the age of Seventeen exploring what was left of the Legion's HQ which was now derelict & in ruins. He had hoped to salvage his Fathers name, this was when Miguel unintentionally turned on the switch of a machine which sent a powerful surge of living electricity through his body; but rather than killing him, it mutated him into what is now known as the Living Lightning.

After getting to grips with his newfound powers, Miguel was consumed by his drive to avenge his Father & the hate he felt for those he saw responsible; The Avengers. Miguel made a number of failed assaults on the heroic team, each time they overwhelmed him. Eventually he gave up on the relentless attacks, instead falling under the influence of the villian Doctor Demonicus, a man who used him for his personal gains. Miguel soon saw through this & left his life of crime behind, instead leading a life of solitude off the grid.

It was years gone by when Miguel was next seen, having years to search his feelings he saw the errors of his ways. His father was not worthy of being idolised, in fact he was an extremist. As for the Avengers, they did what duty was expected of them. In fact Miguel came to admire the team, when they split into two separate groups due to the civil war over the accords; Miguel made it his mission to join Captain America & those who took his side. Miguel was also opposed to the Accords, seeing them as just a way for Government powers to use these gifted individuals as their own weapons/tools. In light of this, he holds a deep grudge against Tony Stark & Co, seeing them as traitors to their friends & committing unforgivable acts.

Now at the age of 30 Miguel is a full fledged member of the Secret Avengers, he's fiercely loyal toward them & considers the group his family. He now uses his codename Living Lightning when out in the field, though the team of Secret Avengers call him by his real name the way he likes it to be.
