Ability to ride through the timestream. Ability to use the timestream's energies to alter his appearance or produce force blasts. He can also peer into a person's past.
In the year 2030, Matthew Ryder lived in a world ruled by Monarch, who kept order on Earth through dictatorial rule and a powerful police force. No heroes existed in his world, but Ryder remembered a time when there were superheroes. He hated that his family's beliefs and actions were adversely affected by Monarch's methods; he was disillusioned to Monarch's authority. Thus, when he learned that quantum physists of his time had developed the possiblity of sending a person into the timestream, Ryder volunteered for the project. Monarch needed someone to enter the timestream to make sure it was safely navigable for himself; Ryder hoped that this opportunity would allow him to go back in time and discover Monarch's true identity and to prevent the future in which he lived.
