“Eye of the hurricane beats eye of the tiger, every time.”
Tyson Lennyx was a man of many interests growing up. Immersing himself into science and sports throughout school, Tyson found he had a natural predilection for synching his biorhythms to weather patterns in order to excel on the athletic front. Planning to capitalize on his talents in order to pursue a professional sports career in the mix martial arts, his path was interrupted by a rare genetic defect that atrophied his nervous system when adrenaline levels exceeded a certain level.
Unable to fulfill his dreams as a professional fighter, Tyson tried to transfer his love of the sport into a career as a sportscaster on WLVI, Las Venganzas’ flagship television station. Sadly, the sports programming was run through former MMA great Earl Hammer, who took an immediate dislike to the charismatic newcomer. Rather than turning Tyson away, though, Earl used his connections to set Tyson up with an ill-fated job in the meteorology group at WLVI just to give the youth false hope at moving up one day…
Tyson’s destiny changed the day he was out on assignment covering a freak electrical storm that blew through Las Venganzas. Accidentally synching to unstable weather patterns while on camera, Tyson’s physique became an attractor for a large electrical surge. The combined effect of electricity, raised adrenaline and Tyson’s genetic makeup allowed him to fully unlock the ability to manipulate the elements around him. Thus, the birth of Category Five was witnessed on live television… and a pay-per-view face-off with Mr. Hammer is in the works.
