Shawn is an accomplished pilot and has broken several records while piloting aircrafts. He was selected to fly a new jet whose engines were in the experimental stage but during its first full test flight, Shawn was exposed to an unknown energy when his experimental jet engine exploded over the Pacific.

Shawn learned of his powers almost immediatedly when he ran to the shore to signal a boat and started to run across the water. He continued to run across the water and ran to his base reporting everything to his commanding officer.

That's when he became Sonic Soldier. Although he alligned himself with the super group, Global Defense Force, he is still a member of the USAF. 


Speed: He usually runs at supersonic speeds but  he has broken the speed of light. As he travels, he creates an energy around himself that negates certain laws of physics, which protect him and the people around him.

Sonic generation: He can release blasts of sonic force.

He can only sustain speeds above light speed for a few minutes. He is completely weakened after this. He keeps his speeds under mach to gain back his energy, which takes days.

Paraphernalia: Basic equipment, handcuff, miniature locator beacons, and radio. He also always has his sunglasses on.
