Captain Flash, Eternal Youth:
I am now reaching the end of my years as I am now in my 80's and my body is riddled with cancer that baffles the doctors. It turns out the radiation that gave me such great powers and made me a super hero gave me cancer but also held it from killing me. However when I clapped my hands to change into Captain Flash I would put off radiation that eventually gave my sidekick Rick and my wife Cancer. The government is helping me out for all I have done for my country but I think they just want to use me to create a nuclear deterrent. There is a lovely lass who works with me and has even designed a suit for me that would have allowed me to use my powers without harming those I cared about. Years to late I guess but it is the thought that counts. Her name is Dr. Caitlin Snow and has claimed to work with meta humans before even a guy who seems to have stole part of my name known as The Flash. The Flash has been doing a lot of good and so I don't care that we share a name. Specially since I am now to old to fight, or so they tell me. I at least have been using my years of experience and knowledge of science to help where I can.
I came in early on Friday to get started working on the Captain Flash suit to tweak it here or there. Just thinking about the good old days when a new girl came in. I asked where Caitlin was and her mask shattered at the look of my concern. She burst out crying and told me that Caitlin had been taken by the Rogues, a group of bad guys normally fought by The Flash but he was out of town fighting with the Green Arrow. As I hugged this sobbing girl I looked down out my wrinkled hands and made up my mind what to do. I told the girl I would take care of it and she looked at me puzzled. I then had the girl leave the room and I clapped my hands together starting my atomic reaction to release my powers. It had been so long I thought something went wrong as I collapsed to the ground in pain. Turns out that another power I did not know I had was eternal youth. I rapidly lost 60 years and was back to my prime, powers restored. I looked up at the new costume and suited up…
Using my super-speed, no where near as fast as Flash but faster then a car, I ran to the warehouse they were keeping her in. I then scouted the area and saw they had surveillance covering the perimeter. As two of the goons passed each other I ran in between and jumped to the roof. I then used my atomic powers to make my finger into knife and cut a hole in the roof. I scouted the area and started making a plan of action. When you have been a superhero as long as I have you don't make the same mistakes by barging in and taking out the bad guys. You do that and they will get the jump on you.
As soon as I saw trickster I dropped down and knocked him out with one atomic punch. I then started searching the area when I heard some one call out "Who the hell are you?" I turned to see Captain Boomerang. "My name is Captain Flash." I said as I dodged one of his boomerangs got in close and then uppercut him hard. I then moved around to find Caitlin and found her next the the other 3 rouges, Heatwave, Captain Cold, and Weather Wizard.... Man this mission had too many Captains and I don't think any of them were sanctioned by the government, including myself. I threw a rock to get there attention Captain Cold and Heat Wave wet off to check it out. I then ran in to take on weather wizard and he hit me with lightening. I flew back but instead of being hurt I absorbed the blast and felt better. It increased my speed and I was able to rush in, break the wand and knocked him out. Just then both Heatwave and Captain cold showed up and flanked me, aiming their guns at me and pulled the trigger.
They both hit me at the same time and the heat was being absorbed but the cold was working. I screamed out in agony though because being hit by 2 temperatures like that is extremely painful. I fell to my knees crying in pain. Heatwave finally pulled off as cold froze me to a Popsicle. I heated up my body temperature enough to stay conscious using he heat absorbed from heat waves gun. I then waited for my time to escape when there was only one. Heatwave went off to see what happened to the others. I broke out of the ice using Heatwaves energy. I used the rest of it when cold shot at me I countered it with the heat gun energy. I then shot him with atomic energy and then went over to free Caitlin and get out of here. We headed out and kept watch for Heatwave. He caught us heading out the door. I put her behind me as he fired and I absorbed the blast. I then turned it back on him and blew him away. Then we got out of there and I started my renew life as a superhero.
