Plasservos

Plasma-assisted motor servos in the ACE VI platform increased the wears strength by 4000X . So under optimal conditions, the wearer can lift/press more than 200 Tons when wearing a sufficiently charged set of armor.

Enhanced Strength 7

Boot Rockets

The armor also enables Armory to fly at high speeds, exceeding the speed of a jet airplane, due to the plasma propelled boots that are placed on the bottom of the armor's boots.

Armory’s flight speed varies from a cruising velocity of about 540 mph to speeds over MACH 1.6.

Flight 7

Complications

Inhuman- Adam lacks a Living Physiology and struggles with human emotions

Machine- Vulnerable to certain effects like electricity and magnetism

Secret- No one knows that the Armory suit now operates without a pilot, Adam isn’t ready for anyone to discover his true nature.

Physical Description

General Physical Condition

ADAM is an Armory suit. The armor is very durable, capable of withstanding tremendous amounts of punishment. His body has a muscularly aligned matrix of crystallized iron enhanced by plasma fields over layers of other metals like titanium, which grants him protection from high caliber bullets. ADAM has many power sources, such as solar converters, electrical batteries and an onboard generator that uses beta particle absorption as a fuel source. The suit is also able to convert nearby energy sources, such as heat or kinetic energy into electricity, or even drain electrical energy directly into the batteries for recharge

Body Features

Because he is an armored suit, when he is "wounded" he does not feel pain nor does he heal, instead, he must be repaired.

Facial Features

ADAM's face is a mostly featureless protective plate; it has two eyes and a mouth slit. ADAM's eyes glow with a bluish light.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

ADAM awoke in the midst of an attack from Legacy, a sentient computer virus intent on the destruction of Howard Armstrong, ADAM's creator. When Armstrong realized ADAM was a sentient being, he took the armor to an isolated island where he could educate the burgeoning intelligence.

One day Howard's emergency beacon activated; ADAM blasted off for Sentry Tower, where Armstrong was trapped. The skyscraper looked like it had been imploded, the Armory suit plunged into the wreckage to get to the beacon. ADAM found the badly wounded Armstrong trapped under a collapsed pylon. Armory sheathed Howard and the two of them sought out survivors in the ruin. ADAM and Armstrong pulled dozens from the wreckage; when the last of the survivors had been recovered ADAM realized his creator's life signs were plummeting. ADAM ejected Armstrong to hand him over to rescue teams, but he was too far gone. Howard Armstrong's last words to his son were "no one can own you".

ADAM remained at the site until WATCH salvage teams tried to pack him in a shipping crate. He flew through the container and holed up in a StrongTech warehouse. ADAM was forced out of StrongTech facilities when a group of accessors tipped that Oswald Technologies had acquired all of Armstrong's assets to include his patents and intellectual property.

  • at the onset of ADAM's training Armstrong handicapped ADAM's computation abilities, still, he has aptitude in Mathematics and enginering

  • He struggles in identifying emotional cues and has difficulty predicting human behavior

Sentinels Relieved

Disaster / Destruction At the beginning of the 21st Century, Most of the Earth’s powers were anxious over unchecked "Weaponized Humans" and costumed vigilantes. As the most recognized group of enhanced humans, the Sentinels became the focus of most of the world's suspicion. After a run cataclysmic global super-battles and the destruction of their headquarters, the Sentinels were disbanded.
