Evasive when confronted about his disappearances at night. Intent when fighting crime and careful to keep his identity secret from the public. One of his vices is that he is a gadget guy- he is an early adopter, always staying abreast of what's new and hot in the area of personal electronics, computers, and the like. He loves playing with gadgets and being the first person in his group of friends to get a new digital device. Strength Level: Above average, works out every day. Notable Skills: Professional caliber singer, classically trained, who has an incredible number of songs memorized. Good knowledge of music and the music scene. Good dancer, though not as good a dancer as he is a singer- has studied ballet, jazz, tap, and ballroom dancing. Studies martial arts for exercise and discipline. Superhuman Abilities: 1. Sound Generation- He can generate sound with his vocal cords far beyond the capabilities of a normal human as regards decibel level and range. He can create sound levels able to shatter solid objects and can create sound in the infra (up to 16 Hz) and ultra (over 16000 Hz) ranges as well as the range the normal human ear can hear (16-16000 Hz). 2. Sound Manipulation- He can psionically control sound to create various effects. He often uses this power for: a. Flight- he can fly at supersonic speeds, using sound waves to protect him from the normal effects of flight at this speed. b. Sonic Blast- he can focus sound waves at a target and cause it to shatter. At high power his blasts can virtually disintegrate a target. At low power he can knock a person unconscious without causing them further harm. c. Sonic Shield- he can focus sound waves into a physical shield to protect from solid matter or energy. d. Sonic Shroud- he can enhance or diminish ambient sound in an area to make an area silent or much louder than it is. e. Sonar- he can use sound waves to perceive an area through echolocation, mimicking sonar. f. Subsonic Suggestion- he can manipulate subsonic frequencies to make his suggestions hard to resist. He can also crudely manipulate certain emotions in listeners by adjusting subharmonics when he speaks or sings. g. Ventriloquism- he can create sound at a distance or manipulate soundwaves so that sounds generated nearby appear to come from somewhere else or sounds generated far away appear to originate nearby. This second use allows him to eavesdrop from a great distance. 3. Enhanced Hearing- in addition to being able to manipulate sound waves to allow him to hear things at a distance, Coda can hear sounds in ranges outside the normal human range, in the infra and ultra range. 4. Protected Hearing- he unconsciously protects himself from loud noises, including his own sound attacks, by manipulating the sound that reaches his eardrums, dampening possibly damaging levels of noise.
