— Ricochet


Johnathon "Johnny" Gallo (of Earth-616), also known as Ricochet, is a young mutant that was a member of the teenager supergroup known as the Slingers, who also adopted the Ricochet name, and costume after Spider-Man got rid of it when he cleared his name of a supposed murder.

History

Early Life

Losing his mother at a young age to a pair of superhuman criminals, Johnny was raised by his emotionally distant father, who seemed to blame him for the loss of his mother. As a teen, Johnny discovered that he was a mutant, endowed with superhuman agility and a "Danger-Sense" that allowed him to detect danger.

Becoming a hero

He kept his powers a secret, and lived a chaos free life until he enrolled in the Empire State University, where he met his future teammates and his mentor, Daniel Lyons, also known as the Black Marvel. He adopted the costumed identity of Ricochet (which was created by Spider-Man during a time when he operated as four different heroes to evade bounty hunters while falsely accused of a murder). He happily accepted his role, wanting to use his abilities to help people for the great good.

Powers & Abilities

Superhuman Reflexes & Agility

Johnathan's agility and reflexes are far superior to those of an ordinary human, even those that represent the peak of human conditioning such as Captain America. The speed of his reflexes combined with his Danger-Sense allows him to dodge almost any attack.

He is able to flex his body like a contortionist, assuming postures that would be impossible or harmful for most normal humans. His tendons and connective tissues are at least twice as elastic as the average human being's. Johnathan can leap several stories vertically or the width of a city street. By utilizing all of these gifts, he is able to appear to "ricochet" off of walls.


  • Danger-Sense: Johnathan's "Danger-Sense" alerts him to danger much like Spider-Man's spider sense. Using his Danger-Sense to time his enhanced reflexes, Johnathan can casually dodge attacks up to and including automatic-weapons fire. Even point blank, his Danger-Sense has already warned him in enough time to get away like a precognitive sense, before he can even consciously think about his actions. However, he can ignore this instinct. His Danger-Sense is sufficiently well-linked to his reflexes, a threat can trigger them even when Johnathan is asleep or stunned. Johnathan's Danger-Sense is directional and can guide him to or away from hidden weapons and disguised enemies.

Equipment

In addition to his regular abilities, the Ricochet costume included flying disc-like weapons which he wears on his sleeves.

The discs can bounce off walls and targets with incredible force. He has also developed a variant of these discs that explode on impact. Ricochet's superhuman reflexes and "Danger-Sense" enable him to throw his discs with amazing speed and accuracy.
