Powers & Abilities

Big Atomic Lantern Boy can fire a beam of variable energy types via the harness on his chest.

These can be :

  • pure brute force blasts
  • beams which find the energy wavelength of other powers and disrupt them (such as neutralising a force field long enough for others to get through it)
  • sensitive harmless forms of energy (such as one which performed a full body scan that Most Excellent Superbat was able to read on his handheld).

History

[See the Super Young Team entry for his time with the team]

Big Atomic Lantern Boy using his energy blast

Big Atomic Lantern Boy serves as deputy leader of the Super Young Team, although he’s had little chance to do any actual leading. He developed a serious crush on teammate Shiny Happy Aquazon, which is not reciprocated. When the team split up he even started following her around to ensure she was okay. As a result, she’s grown to actively dislike him.


Personality

Serious and socially awkward, Big Atomic Lantern Boy has a serious crush on Happy Shiny Aquazon which borders on the creepy stalkerish. He always keeps an eye on her to ensure she’s safe.


Quotes

Big Atomic Lantern Boy: “This is it ! You have to tell Aquazon how much I love her, Keigo. Tell her I’ve always loved her, like the tree loves to grow, like the sun loves the day…”
Well-Spoken Sonic Lightning Flash: “Doomsday is coming, 10 minutes tops ! Tell her yourself. Make a date.”

Design Notes

It’s unclear whether his power is totally artificial, or whether the harness allows him to focus extant abilities. I’ve gone with the powers being his.
