History: Peter Cannon was trained in Tibet by an ancient order dedicated to physical and mental perfection. For a time he was believed to be the Chosen One of this order, but this turned out to be false. Cannon moved to New York City and adopted the identity of Thunderbolt some time ago. After nearly dying on one of his early missions, Cannon went into semi-retirement before returning to public life while living in London.
Able to tap into the 90% of the human mind that the rest of us never use, Cannon is able to augment his physical abilities for brief periods of time to superhuman levels. His superior mental fortitude also gives him low-level mental abilities.
Rather than tip his hand and reveal the exact extent of his abilities, Cannon chose to have the world see Thunderbolt as just another speedster. He primarily focused his will into his running speed while in public, correctly assuming that his opponents would underestimate him.
