Technically speaking, this OC might be defined as my personal avatar, but he has its own history and events (that i have invented when i'm bored or i had nothing to do), so he isn't just a simply copy of me (we have similar personalities, but he is more extreme, while i'm more quiet in general)

So, in a certain way, it basically the living personification of my own Id

There are many stories and rumors about the origins of NUMEN, many say that is an Avatar of the creator itself, many say that is always existed from the dawn of time and so on, but the true tend to be much more simple. Originally a 25 years old human male named Carlo Terranova, he was a normal guy that live in Italy, in a small town near Turin. He live a quiet and standard life, pretty boring is some way, but nothing of drastical too, until the day that would change his life forever.

During a late night, while he was coming to his home (after a long and stressful day of work), when crossing a solitary road he found a strange object, that can be descrived as a some kind of luminous sphere in the ground (that he had named The Core, due of it's characteristics). Out of curiosity, he decide to touch it and see what was it, but when he tried to do that the object simply disappear in front of him, after this event Carlo decide to return to his house, thinking that he was just a mere illusion create by his tiredness. But he couldn't know how much was wrong in that moment.

Over the next several days, he start to feel pain in every part of his body (like he was be tear apart by unknow forces) and lose far more calorie and water than the normal, all of them while he start to be always exhaust no matter what (not even sleep for longer period of times is enough). Also he start to suffer hallucinations, that where incomprehensible to him. The situation had became so bad, that he was been hospitalized in intensive care for a month, for how his body was reach at his extreme limits, but then the pain had stopped without explanation, not even the doctors knew what to think and they simply send Carlo to home. But knew that something happens, that something had change inside him.

And just like Carlo had thought, after just a weekend, he start to feel and see a gradual change of his body and mind (like when he accidentaly broke a door handle or when he senses the presence of a butterfly from a few meters of distance) and the process became faster and faster, until he even start developer actual supernatural capacities/abities (like energy/matter manipulation, telekinesis and much more).

While the initial reaction of Carlo was to freak out and panicking, he then became curious for this new found powers and excited about them, as he had then spend entire months in test them in a isolated place (to make sure that nobody would knew about this). After thinking for a long period of time and with this new found need of unleash his powers as much he can (as what he is could potentially be able to do), Carlo decided to became a vigilante, as a way to utilize his powers in a "productive" way for society (but the truth is that he only want an excuse to utilize his powers as much as possible).

And for prevent any possible problem in the case he would be exposed, he decide to chance his human form, into the appearance, that will be more recognized, for the rest of his life and give himself a new nickname for his new alter ego, NUMEN. For the next 5 years, NUMEN would deal with any kind of guys, for small criminals to criminal organizations and even go again the interest of entire nations, while expanding his area of infuence (from Italy up to the World) and at the same time try to remain as a urban legend in the eyes of the public

Theme: Audiomachine - Kill 'Em All

Tell me, do you understand the very meaning of power? Because if you don't, then let me show it with a demonstration.

Life is neither black or white, and not even grey. It's colorless, as was always be. It's up to you to decide the color of your life and if you want to chance it, if you want of course.

I have never pretend to be evil or good, right or wrong, the hero or the villain. I have only pretend to be myself and nothing else, whatever if you like it or not.

There isn't been such thing as true absolute. Everything and everyone are relative, sometime less and sometime more.

Just because i'm kind to you, it doesn't mean that i'm your friend. My friendship is something that you must earn it first, is not something that i give to anyone like candies.

If i must choose between be feared or beloved, i would rather to be feared. At least fear is far more honest emotion, compare to love.

Survived a violent collision between two Earth's size planets which pulverize both of them. Tank a starquake from a magnetar at point-blank range) to Multiverse level+ at Full Power. Low Complex Multiverse level to High Hyperverse level via Ether Status

Stamina: Varies. High Superhuman as Baseline (Can remain at peak conditions for weeks without rest. Can remain active for extend period of times while in critical conditions.

Low Complex Multiversal to High Hyperversal via Ether Status

Standard Equipment: None in particular, but he is capable to make any kinds of weapons, anything from melee weapons to firearms

Intelligence : Varies. Genius as Baseline (Know to be crafty, savvy and resourceful. Formidable strategist and tactician, able to quickly understand the opponent's abilities and form plans on the fly. Had outsmart and manipulative and trick many people and entire factions, even ones who had be know to be cunning. A little more than fourth decades worth of combat experience over the many years of conquering and fighting in the Local Multiverse. Expert combatant with vast experience with multiple martial arts such as Boxing, Taekwondo, Capoeira, Karate, Krav Maga, Wrestling, Kung Fu, Muay Thai, Kalaripayattu, Systema and Judo, as well as display astounding skills with armed martial arts such as Fior Di Battaglia, Arnis, Tower Fechtbuch, Arab Archery and Gun Fu.

Could outwit an super advance AI capable to predict any possible future with 100% accuracy). Nigh-Omniscient via Ether Status (Able to know nearly everything that has happen, its happening or could happen in all realities under his Ether Status)

Weaknesses: Susceptible again sneak attacks when off guard, that surpass his Baseline's level of power or bypass durability. His regeneration can be weakened if NUMEN get sufficiently weakened and/or worn down in combat, eventually he wouldn't be able to heal from damage that he could regenerate in a instant previously, to the point that damage fatal to normal humans would be just as fatal to him. Cannot use all his abilities at once, but only a limited set of them at time. NUMEN's hax are never able to fully affect beings with equal strength, while begins stronger than him would show higher level of resistances, although no one is going to have true immunity. The Core can be tricked so that it doesn't acknowledge a serious threat, preventing NUMEN to alter his level of power to match the threat. Usually lazy and uncaring, only becoming seriously only when necessary.

His power level is also severely restricted by The Limiter, a special mechanism of The Core that inhibit NUMEN from using his power at full extend in most normal conditions, and only allow him to use a fraction of it referred as his Baseline, this can change only when NUMEN start to fight someone with stats that exceed his Baseline and when facing an imminent danger above with his Baseline or by using his Ether Status. Although NUMEN discover that everytime he utilize more than his Baseline's level of power, The Limiter's grasp get weakened and eventually it would be nullified completely, allowing NUMEN to directly access his true strength without limitations

Standard Tactics: To be added

Ether Status - NUMEN's most formidable power up that permit him to archive unparalleled strength boosts, it can be activate by "Overclocking" The Core, where NUMEN would need to focus all his energy/power for "Overclocking" The Core for roughly half a day (which could making him vulnerable to any attacks), or by metabolize already existing Ether. However continuous use of the Ether Status of extend periof time and at full strength will eventually strains him physical body and mind causing him immense pain and exhaustion, at extreme cases this could potentially definitivally destroy him to the point of nonexistence

Mind Switch (Thought based) - The ability to control and alterate the mindset of the user, it can be used for make the user more feral and more brutal in combat

Potential Sense (Detection based) - The ability of sense and acknowledge the latent potential of anyone in the range of the ability, it can also help to sense if someone is try to hide and repress its level of power, althought it is impossible to estimate the exactly level of power

Gauss Strike (Elettromagnetic based) - By infusing his body with high amount of electromagnetic energy, NUMEN can use the magnetic induction, for amplify his own striking power by increasing his own accelerating. This can be also apply to other objects and turn them intro supepowered projectiles and more, like throws things and used it like a means of transport

Kugelblitz (Space-Time based) - By focusing his space-time energies to a single point or in one of his physical strikes, the power infused can warp the space-time so much to generate a singularity, this for the victim can either generate massive internal damage or even make its body to collapse and dismembered by the extreme forces within the event horizon

Dragon's Gasp (Dragonic based) - NUMEN's signature and favourite offensive attack. By using his dragonic power, it allow the user to projecting a immense blast of green purple dragonic flames from its mouth which are powerful enough to burn, melt and vaporize nearly everything it touch. Said flames can be fired as a single ball of flames or a continuous beam of flames. Those flames can be compressed/focus, deliver blasts with more concussive force than heat, making them more powerful as well

Eternal Realm (Pocket Reality based) - This ability allows the creation a pocket dimension where the user had absolute control over it's environment and laws, where it can freely leave or enter as it please. The only down side is that it had a precise time limit, which when passed the pocket reality would disappear, it can be extended but it would requid a constant amount of energy for be maintained

The Shredder (Astral based) - By separate part of his body (usually one of his arms) and projected it intro the Astral Plane, the user can directly interact with the objects that exist in that plane of existence, such as souls, dreams and consciousness. This allow him to directly attack the consciousness of his opponents, inflicting damage that the opponent cannot recover in conventional ways (meaning Regeneration wouldn't help). The downside of this ability is the limited range and that for damaging the opponent's consciousness NUMEN need to hit the head of the opponent

Primal Mimicry (Shapeshift based) - Depend by the situation and by his personal choice. The user can alterate its physical body internal or externally for ressembler the traits of the living begins that it had a discrete knowledge. This technique can became even more efficient is it's used with the Mind Switch, which would make him act like a real animal, making him much more unpredictable, as he would use his instincts in combat

Gamma Ray (Cosmic based) - By using his cosmic powers, ot generate a miniaturized star between the hands, for then instantly collapse it and generate a powerful gamma ray bust that can be directed to any direction. While lacking the destruction power of the Dragon's Gasp, it's compensated with a much greater range and precision, acting like a sniper rifle. It can also homing the target for a brief period of time

Mind Boom (Mind based) - By performing this technique, the user can concentrate a great amount of psychic energies, intro a omnidireactional explosion, which can generate massive mental damages to everyone inside the affect's range. More bigger it's the range and less powerful would be the ability, also the technique do not discriminate, so the ability is going to hurt friends and foes alike

Gravi-Wave (Gravity based) - By generate an immense gravitional force any part of its body, this allow the user to create highly damaging gravitational waves by either pounding part of his body together, the opponent or the environment. This ability mimicry the same gravitational waves generate by the collision between two massive objects. Furthermore the user can direct most of the force in a smaller area to amplify its destructive power

Mankind's Recall (Empowerment based) - This ability allows the user to assimilate and utilize the potential of the humans around it to reach levels of power much higher than it would be possible, this ability can only work with humans and the power up is not permanent as the potential must return to is owners, otherwise there would be grave conseguences. As keep it for extend periods of time would cause massive alteration to the user itself, as its body's mass would keep increasing and keep going until it collapse to itself, while the mind would start to become more and more unstable to the point to mental breakdown

Alzheimer's Effect (Memory based) - The technique allow the capacity to block a certain amount of information of the victim, make them able to remember a specific knowledge that normally would immediately knok. This can be very effective against characters with abilities that requid vast and complex knowledge for be performed, making them unable to to use their techniques, the downside is that the effects cannot last forever

Oblivion (Void based) - By performing this technique, it allow the user to unleash voids of pure nothingness capable to consumes everything that they can touch, they can also attract everything around and draw them like a singularity, which compensates their limited range of action

Mystic Disruption (Magic based) - By bending the properties and laws of Magic itself, it allow the user to bend the rules of magic around the battlefield, making difficult for any magic users in the area of effect to perform their spells as usual, and even impossible to perform the hardest and most complex ones

Psychosis (Perception based) - By generating a flash of special light, NUMEN can influence the opponent's senses at his liking, to an extend that the latter isn't capable to realize what reality is anymore. The user can be used this intimidate by making himself looks more scary or screw someone's else mind by changing his surrounding to the point that it become impossible understand what its going on (similar to Ace from the Justice League)

- Feared by most, even by begins above his league, due of his incredible track record of survive against all odds and eventually come back and archive victory, make them worry everytime they have to deal with NUMEN

- Forced two of the three Superpowers intro an armistice, just for give them the finger

- Faced all kinds of situations and enemies in his career as conqueror. Anything from deities, demons, cosmic entities, extra-dimensional creatures, mutants, superpowered humans, robots, aliens, magical begins, psychics, eldritch abominations and etc.

- Created his own personal paramilitary force, The Lĕgĭo, an turn it intro one of the most deadliest armies in the Local Multiverse

- Fought and defeat the dragon Avantador, one of the most ancient dragons in the Local Multiverse, taking the title of Drakon

- Creator of the Know-Negator, a serum made by special bio-nanomachines capable to remove knowledge from a victim and reduce all its skills to average human level. It was created to deal again characters that don't have any superpowers, but that they are dangerous for their intelligence, knowledge and cunning. The only way to neutralize it is to take an apposite vaccine for eliminate the serum

- Became a prominent figure in the Local Multiverse's balance of power, thanks of his achievements as conqueror over several decades, having more than a thousand of worlds/realities under his banner, despire never directly rule them and leaving to other the job

- Stated that if NUMEN would be able to refine the Mankind's Recall and nullify its natural limitations, by not only allows him to assimilate the potential of non-human begins but also take it permanently, he would be no end of how much powerful he would had become. For this reasons the Mankind's Recall could be considered potentially NUMEN's most dangerous ability
