this is a project i have going called second rate super heroes and villains. it's the story of superheros and villains with crappy powers(if you want to call them powers)
Lanz was a student at the university working with dr. Fabius who was working on "Beam Propulsion Technology"(it's a real thing). Lanz volunteered for a experiment in which Fabius tried to propel humans. the experiment was a succes and gave Lanz the power to shoot laser beams out of his fists(to the degree of a normal laser pointer) and the ability to propel himself to the maximum speed of 55 MPH. he is a hero, saving dames and blinding thief's all the while attracting neighborhood cats.
