A toy made alive! Paragon is the ultimate creation of a very imaginative boy, who loved playing with his superhero plastic dolls, since he was very young. Dylan Hunt was 13 years old when he discovered a severe brain cancer. The disease, told the doctors to his shocked and devastated parents, would give him few months or less, to live. During the excruciating months that followed, Dylan persevered in dreaming himself cured so much so that, in his death throes, he accessed a particular dimension where he was not only cured, but able to do wondrous things. When poor, cancer-stricken boy had his last breath, he also exhaled a powerful shining figure, which would coalesce into Paragon, imitating one of Dylan's old toys. Since then, for all purposes, Dylan Hunt has been Paragon (although his background is only known by very few people).

Paragon is unbelievably strong, although the upper limits of his strength are unknown. He has been observed stopping a runaway bus, destroying a giant robot with a single punch, and raising a sunken ship from the oceans off the Elsewhere coast. He is impervious to most forms of weaponry. Paragon has what was called “unbreakable body”, which means he doesn’t suffer ‘serious injuries’, because his body is utterly indestructible. He hasn't aged a day from the day he first appeared to the public, although his hair is completely white. He also does not require food or drink, though he apparently enjoys both. He is a very light sleeper, spending most of his nights reading (he's a voracious reader).

Paragon’s speed is just as impressive as his strength. He is capable of bursts of enhanced reflex action and the ability to move at incredible speeds by sheer force of will. And through manipulation of gravitons, Paragon is able to seemingly defy the forces of gravity and propel himself through the air unaided. Like many other ultramen with the same ability, Paragon's skill in flight allows him to perform just about anything he could on the ground in the air.

Paragon's bio-cellular matrix (an energy pattern that is linked to his body's electromagnetic field) is his most powerful asset, but also his greatest weakness. Its permeability to certain wavelengths makes Paragon vulnerable to magical energies whose chaotic electromagnetic or extra-dimensional signatures disrupt his resistance. Magic can have powerful and unpredictable effects on Paragon and his magical enemies have often proven to be the most dangerous.

Virtually unstoppable, able to defeat the likes of Hercules and Thor, about the only reason most of Paragon’s enemies aren't terrified of him is that he always takes great care to use only the power necessary to defeat a foe. In fact, magic notwithstanding, Paragon's greatest weakness in battle is his concern for sentient life. Many a villain has escaped Paragon by placing innocents in danger.

My take on Superman/Captain Marvel/Miracleman/Samaritan/M'Onel/Gladiator/Mister Majestic/Omni-Man/Supreme-like characters. Paragon is the ultimate ultrahero in our campaigns; he sets the paradigm, the example. Ultimately incorruptible, he's the force of good, the beacon which guides all the other heroes in Elsewhere. It was the first character I ever created in ICONS, just to see how well I could do it, so it's more than appropriate to have it here, to celebrate Eidolons' hundredth post. Character revised according to rules presented in ICONS Great Power book. Streamlined, once again, according to ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying: The Assembled Edition.
