Background
Solomon Gunn is a code name. Most of his past was redacted when he went undercover as part of a top secret kill squad created by an alphabet agency. It's believed he came from a wholesome christian home, he joined the U.S. Military out of Patriotic feeling, was tapped into Special forces command, and went off the radar from there. Solomon has been involved in operations so black that they would shake the faith of the American people in their government. It is believed that Mister Gunn has killed heads of state on the whims of his boss. Somewhere along the way the patriotic young american lost his way, his fabric dyed by the blood and sweat and tears of his time around the world killing torturing and destroying for his Uncle Sam, his powers maturing may have also had a part in it. It's believed that he snapped and went rogue in an operation in Europe.

Since then Solomon Gunn has been hired by crime families, dictators, and despots alike, to do things ordinary soldiers cant or wouldn't do. Now he finds himself in Ruby City, where he has been stocking weapons caches all over the city, for what purpose nobody knows, but it can't be good.

Superhuman Information

Power Holder?: Yes

Shot: Solomon can absorb, store, and redirect kinetic energy. He can absorb from anywhere on his body but can only redirect through his hands. Currently he can store and release a total of 500 ft/lbs or ~678 joules at one time, reducing impact force from anything that exceeds this threshold by whatever of it remained. To absorb kinetic energy he must be aware of the source. He cannot absorb kinetic energy from actions he takes (shooting a gun, throwing a punch, etc).

Alright so let me just be frank, 2000 ft/lbs is too much to start with, because not only is this a defensive power, this is a hybrid power in which your upper limit of absorption is easily offset by expelling what you absorb.

As shown in the rules, all powers that can tank attacks have to abide a certain bullet threshold which we could translate to force in this case. Even a dinner-plate sized plate can only block up to standard caliber bullets, while this power could, by my measurements, reliably stop an anti-tank round provided he saw it coming (which isn't much of a requirement in terms of tanking powers) and stood still (better requirement), then just expel a few blasts from his hands while the shooter is recoiling, and be good to keep tanking such shots no problem.

So my primary issue is in the tanking capabilities of this power, not the projection part. This is at least level 3 dedicated tanking, not level one half-tanking with blaster components.

My recommended alteration

To absorb kinetic energy he must be aware of the source, and standing still. As such, he cannot absorb kinetic energy from actions he takes (shooting a gun, throwing a punch, etc).

500 ft/lbs is WAY too low for someone that's going to be in shootouts with cops and fistfights with heroes. That's a little less than a good kick, and a little more than a single 9mm bullet. Making using his rather tanky power suicidal. If it must be 500ft/lbs it'd be fair to remove the standing still weakness.

A person with base level powers shouldn't be getting into shootouts with cops regardless of background, but nevertheless, this is negotiation is agreeable. Swap the power in the template in and I can approve.
