Powers and Abilities

Henri Huang is a mutant with the power to move at superhuman speeds, with equivalent reaction time and reflexes. His body heals and processes toxins at the same incredible rate, but oddly, he does not seem to need more than average sustenance.

He is fast enough to break the sound barrier if he pushes himself.


History

Henri Huang’s background is more sketchy than most of his comrade’s. He worked for Alchemax, the huge multinational conglomerate, until Jordan Boone, his roommate, got him out of the “unbreakable” contract.

He apparently traveled the country, as he picked up Krystallin Porter in Berkeley, and they both joined Xi’an’s X-Men, apparently out of gratitude, (IIRC they were in trouble when Shakti found them) but remained for the sense of thrill and for Krystallin Porter, whom he fell in love with.


Personality

Henri is brash and as quick to react as he is to run… mostly in the wrong directions. Though a brilliant technician, he lacks discipline and will jump the gun at the least excuse. He jumps to conclusions and acts on them before he thinks it out completely, much like a certain DC speedster…

OTOH, while Henri is certainly impetuous, a bit young and not a deep thinker, but he’s also a smart, observant young man and reasonably competent adventurer. A part of his impetuousness comes from his cyberpunk-like wariness of everything and everybody – he makes it very plain that he trusts little. He never completely trusted La Lunatica, even though he was not one of those harmed by her psychic-vampiric abilities.

However, maneuvering to gain his trust is quite easy for the socially talented (Xi’an earned his trust so completely that Henri bought full-on into the “mutant brotherhood” ideals Xi’an preached)

Also, he easily gets bored.


Quotes

Perplexed Casino Security Guy : “Uh, I don’t follow you.”
Meanstreak : “You couldn’t if you tried” (woosh)


DC Universe History

Meanstreak is Impulse grown up. He works for causes now instead of for kicks, but his attitude is much the same.

Previous Statistics

X-Men 2099 was a very changeable book, but Henri stayed as an island of stability in a chaotic landscape. Things were only revealed and clarified about his past, his abilities, etc… never really changed.
