Responsibility (Man Out of Time)- Vance is from the 20th Century, and is out of his place in the Guardians' world in the 31st.
Relationship (Aleta)- Vance loves his teammate- the ex-wife of his other teammate Starhawk.
Responsibility (Captain America's Shield & Legacy)
Weakness (Torn Suit)- Major Victory's youth in the future depends on wearing his specially-sealed costume. If the suit is damaged, he will immediately start taking damage and Weaken effects over his physical stats, and he will die if the suit is removed.
Power Loss (Telekinesis)- Without the Telekinesis to assist it, the Shield moves much more slowly, doing less damage (+6 maximum), and probably loses some accuracy due to lack of practise.Total:
Abilities: 70 / Skills: 38--19 / Advantages: 14 / Powers: 58 / Defenses: 14 (175)
-Vance Astro/Major Victory is the key character of the Guardians, being iconic enough to take part in the modern incarnation of the team as well. He's an astronaut from our time (the adult version of Marvel Boy/Justice of the New Warriors/Avengers/Initiative... who later got convinced not to become an astronaut after all, thus creating a classic case of comics weirdness) who was sent into the future in suspended animation to terraform some faraway planet, only to discover a war-torn future ruled by The Badoon. Forming the initial band of four, he led the team into the '90s, before that future got wiped out by stuff, and now he's kicking around (with Captain America's Shield, no less!) with the current Guardians as a back-up guy.
-Victory's a little weird to stat out, as he's a Telekinetic who somehow fires brain neurons like a Psychic does, alongside carrying the best Shield in all of comics (which he Ricochets via Telepathy instead of actual throwing skill, but I figure it's mostly the same stats either way with a Complictaion- I like 3e for the ability to do things like that without trying to configure points-costs), and has a Bodysuit that protects him, but would cost him his life if it was removed. Over the years, he's had tons of power-ups and power-downs, so this is the most generic possible build, set in a general sort of era (I know the current book features this variant). There's another version that removes the Bodysuit and also the Weakness on it.
