Powers: Vanguard's uniform is a combat suit designed to support life in space and in alien environments. It also contains an exoskeleton that enhances the wearer's normal strength by ten times, and boot jets that enable him to fly vast distances. The suit is extremely impervious to heat, pressure and energy blasts, generating a force shield that covers even Vanguard's unprotected face. Even without the suit, Vanguard's alien musculature is denser that that of humans, giving him strength and endurance beoyond those of normal earthlings, capable of lifting (pressing) four tons and leaping in a distance of about 60 yards. Vanguard trains daily in weapons use and hand to hand combat on his ship and is improving.
