Are Speedsters Such As The Flash Real?
The Hyper Light Drifter Is the official superhero name for the world’s only known human with the psychokinetic power of moving at faster than light speeds in defiance of the laws of physics. His true identity is kept a secret to protect his daily life as a mild mannered human. Despite his mask, and costume he appears to be an average size male in his late 20’s to early 30’s. In some respects he is comparable to comic book hero speedsters such as “The Flash“. This includes having a speedster physiology so his body can withstand the forces of supernatural speeds that include dead stops, and possibly crashing into objects! Naturally his FTL powers allows him to literally run into the past even if it is merely a near identical parallel Universe. He returns to the future by running just a bit slower than light speed. His psionic power isn’t merely speed based otherwise the mass of his body would never even come close to light speed. A series of other paranormal power genes activate in unison to create a bubble of 5-D hyperspace around him so he’s technically not running in 4-D spacetime. Outside our laws of physics he is free to run at any speed he can muster!
It’s unknown where the Hyper Light Drifter lives or where his superhero activities are based out of. He’s appeared all over the face of the Earth over a period of hours thwarting the human, and paranormal forces of darkness wherever, and whenever he can! Unfortunately there may be some power draining element at work since he seems to lie dormant for a few months at a time. Perhaps his body sustains gradual damage due to the high speeds he glides at, and he needs time to regenerate? He is very secretive so there are a great many things we don’t know about him. Mystic Investigations has attempted to reach out to him through our contacts in the supernatural community but we’ve never heard back from him.
