Appearance: Tom Deegan is a handsome man in his mid-30’s, of above-average height and a trim, athletic build. He has black hair and blue eyes; in a television or movie adaptation, he might be played by a younger Alec Baldwin. As Mr. Expeditious, he wears a black bodysuit with blue trim. The suit has electroluminescent strips (think of the light-up costumes in “Tron: Legacy”) in cyan; magnets and copper wiring embedded in the fabric allow Tom to recharge the batteries for the light strips as he moves his arms and legs at super-speed.
Personality: Mr. Expeditious is out to fundamentally transform the world — he’s not satisfied with solving disagreements with fistfights, only to turn suspects over to the revolving door of the metahuman criminal justice system. He wants to attack the root causes of crime, and help guide the metahuman community to use their talents in ways that will improve the quality of life for the whole human race. To that end, he’s looking to recruit other metahumans who are looking to make the world a better place, both to perform high-profile acts of Good Samaritanism and to provide “persuasion” to those too belligerent to listen to his sales pitch. Tom likes to be in charge, but recognizes that his teammates need to be offered their individual opportunities to shine, and he makes a point of letting them know just how vital their efforts are.
Quote:
Background: Thomas Deegan was the founder and CEO of a marketing firm that was taking Los Angeles by storm. He seemed destined simply for fortune and glory, until he began to suffer from what appeared to be heart palpitations and debilitating panic attacks. As his work began to suffer, be sought medical treatment for his condition, but no traditional doctor could find the cause. As he became more desperate, Tom sought out more esoteric research on the matter, and eventually came across the papers of a Dr. Hyram Maddox, a biologist with some of the most innovative and controversial theories about the meta-genome in the scientific community. Dr. Maddox correctly identified Tom’s condition as late-onset manifestation of a mutant power of super-speed; with a regimen of medication and physical training, Tom was able to learn to harness his developing power and exploit it to his own ends.

Once he had mastered his power, Tom pondered just what he ought to do with it. He already had all the fame and money he could want, just from his civilian life; he considered the life of a costumed hero, but saw that their lives of constant battle often led to nothing more than a return to the status quo, rather than tapping into the true potential of the metahuman to fundamentally change the world. It was then that Tom stumbled across the case of Doctor Fiasco — an engineering genius and brilliant homebrew inventor, who apparently could think of nothing better to do with his gift than to construct homemade gadgets and use them to commit robberies. Through careful research and high-speed surveillance of the city, Tom was able to track Fiasco down and present him with an intriguing offer — retire from villain work, and Tom would help Fiasco cover up any traces of his double life, then get him the legal support and financial backing to patent his inventions and market them to the public.

Doctor Fiasco accepted, and Tom Deegan scored his first client for a new business venture. Tom has since hired a successor to handle the day-to-day operations of the marketing firm, and uses his unique position as a mutant to network in the metahuman community, helping to develop positive PR to stem the tide of negative publicity that’s often brought about by collateral damage and unintended consequences, and to provide metahumans with legitimate avenues to express their abilities and achieve their financial goals.
Powers/Tactics: Mr. Expeditious is not a front-line fighter, nor does he want to be — he’s convinced that resorting to physical violence is nothing more than a stopgap, and would prefer to use his powers simply to restrain or trip up his opponents long enough to get them to calm down and listen to reason. However, he’s also a good team player, and will use his power to set up opponents so that his teammates and put a more permanent end to them.
