He started as a teen hero, but as I crafted a heroic universe with several years of history, I think he became more interesting. John Sprouse was basically a total screw-up with little future. He was a punk that failed at school and, outside some limited skills as a mechanic, was never going to amount to much. He knocked up his girlfriend while still in high school and was pretty much set up for a dead end.
But as a super powered hero, he started to find some success, even as it basically turned him into a deadbeat dad. Eventually he started to reconnect with his lost girlfriend and child, even as his alter ego of Cyber became more widely known. He becomes one of the initial members of F.O.R.C.E. and one of a few heroes that uses the new compound for the team as a home for himself and his family.
