Sam, Sammy , Smartest person in the world(Self proclaimed) Samuel York(Formerly)
Hometown/Base of operations:
New York City
tattoos: a cross on his chest , "Bibere venenum in auro" which means drink poison from a cup of gold on his back.
Equipment and Weapons:
Sammy has a smart phone that he built from scratch himself, it is actually an extremely powerful computer and can be used for hacking into computer systems.
His watch functions like any normal watch but is fitted with a small dart that contains a powerful paralyzing agent, one click of a button and it shoots the dart.
Samuel's most obvious ability and the origin of all his other powers, Sammy's mind has been 'elevated' due to genetic alteration by the High Evolutionary. It functions like a hypercomputer and is capable of performing an unlimited number of complex and simultaneous calculations. His mind is much more powerful than a normal human and he processes the world in a different manner which is described as; the most efficient and flawless manner. He can process an unlimited number of information and can identify all variables in a situation. He can gather any kind of knowledge and skill in extremely short time and retain this information. His timing is perfect and his mind works perfectly even when under stress or fatigue.
Sam can perfectly and instantly remember everything he has ever heard , seen , smelled or felt and will never forget anything. His mind has unlimited storage and he can retrieve any information in seconds. He can play back a situation in his head as if he is living it again.
Samuel can recognize patterns and notice any detail no matter how small, this allows him to notice and process the cause and effect of any situation.
Sam can perform multiple complicated tasks at once, for example he can write a book while simultaneously watching a movie , draw a painting , solve complex math equations and learn a new language without one task interfering the other. He can sit in a room with a hundred tv screens each showing something different and process all of it, perfectly memorizing and noticing every single detail.
Superhuman sensory input:
A tricky power, contrary to what most might think Samuel does NOT have enhanced senses in fact they are pretty much normal but he can process the sensory input much more efficient meaning he will notice small details and can recognize sounds and smells far more efficient.
Sam has perfect muscle control , he can perform complicated tasks at high speeds with ease and control his movement and muscles , he has never been shown to be clumsy.
Since his mind works in such a different and fast manner it is often very difficult for a telepath to read his mind since the sheer amount of information would be very overwhelming. A sufficiently powerful telepath can bypass this, but for some reason he cannot be tracked by Cerebro he believes that the High Evolutionary did this.
Typically his brain has what he describes as a 'limiter' , by concentrating he can break through these limiters and utilize his already impressive mind to it's fullest potential. This allows him to solve almost any problem and increases his capacity several times. This leaves him tired and famished and he can only keep it up for a short period of time.
Samuel is known as a super genius and describes himself as the smartest man in the world, how much of this is true is up for debate but it is certain that he is in the top 10. He is well versed in; physics, medicine, biology, chemistry, technology , forensic science , computer science , engineering , biochemistry and many other fields. He is constantly expanding his knowledge and follows the latest improvements. He is very skilled at sensing patterns and performing extremely complex calculations.
Sam has created a system that allows him to learn a new language from a couple of hours to two days depending on his knowledge of similar languages. He is fluent in : Russian , English, French , Farsi , Spanish , Italian , Portugese , Dutch , German , Swedish , Arabic , Thai , Mandarin , Cantonese , Japanese , Greek , Latin and many others.
Due to his enhanced mind , Sam is a very skilled investigator. He often uses deductive, inductive and abductive reasoning to find an answer and will often "scan" people , places and things he sees. He can observe and come to a conclusion with astonishing accuracy and is one of the best in the world in this regard. His intuition is so sharp that his 'hunches' are more often than not correct.
Strategist and Tactician:
Samuel's instincts are very sharp and he can come up with complex and elaborate plans in moments. It takes a mind that is at least equal to his own to foil his plans. He usually has contigencies for his contigencies and his plans are calculated to the smallest detail.
Samuel is a skilled hacker , something he picked up at a young age and he has used it to hack governments of the world. He can crack almost any firewall.
Samuel can skillfully hypnotize someone he can suggest things using carefully implanted code words and triggers , he can put someone in a trance like state and suggest almost anything, this does not work on someone who has an "indomitable Will".
From his time as a petty criminal , Sammy has learned how to pick locks and pickpocket. He is very skilled in Sleight of Hand and thanks to his hand-eye coordination and attention to detail has learned how to forge pieces of art. Sam also learned to be a skilled con artist ,He is very good at psychologically influencing people and manipulating them to do what he wants. He can be charming and is a really good liar and actor making someone think he is someone completely different. infallibly persuasive and charismatic. , he can induce submission in others by simply knowing what to say. He is skilled at accents and can mimic voices if they are within his "range".
Due to his ability to calculate complex problems he can use variables to calculate probabilities. He often uses this when gambling and has never lost a poker or pool game.
Hand to Hand Combat:
Though not his greatest nor his preffered skill, Sam has had basic training in and Aikijutsu when he was in high school. His style focuses on redirecting his opponents force and uses quick locks to disarm and stop his opponent. He is nowhere near the level of the average crime fighter though but he can defend himself from the average person long enough for him to escape.
Weaknesses: (3 minimum)
When Samuel goes into what he calls 'override' he becomes extremely exhausted and famished, he has to sleep and eat large amounts of food after this.
2.)I'll take anything:
Sam is addicted to many things, from nicotine to alcohol to pot. He is also an occasional user of hard drugs like heroin and cocaine. His most notable addiction is adrenaline, he is a thrill seeker and will do anything for a fix.
Sam has a tendency to lose track of time in his thoughts, it's like time in his mind is all messed up and he often doesn't notice how long he's been doing something. For example he can spent hours thinking about something and think it's just seconds or he can spend seconds waiting and feel like it's been hours.
4.) Because I'm smart..?
Sam is extremely proud of his intelligence and is constantly trying to prove how smart he is. He has a pathological need to be the smartest person in the room and craves acknowledgement.
5.)It comes with a drawback:
Sam suffers from some mental conditions, likely stemming from his enhanced mind. He is a high-functioning sociopath who suffers from Dissociative identity disorder , severe depression and loneliness.
6.) I need a friend, just not a stupid one:
Sam is extremely lonely, since he is much smarter than most people he grew up around he has always found it difficult to relate to these people. This has caused him to suffer from crippling depression.
Sam's interest is quickly peaked by things that catch his attention and often ignores a conversation he had with someone to follow his curiosities. He sometimes just zones out into his own thoughts regardless of the situation he is in.
Sam lacks tact, and can often be considered very rude and quite a dick by the people he meets.
9.) I don't need strength... I told you I'm Smart:
Sam is not the best fighter and he is not very strong either, he is hopelessly outclassed by the average crime fighter.
10.) Preserve the brain will ya?:
Sam is essentially mortal; he can be killed like any other human can.
Sam is very easily bored and often tries to keep himself occupied , this has led to him using drugs to distract him.
12.) Come on it's fun!:
Sam is quite childish, he only want's to have fun and often doesn't take matters as serious as he should.
13.) I only know the theory of it!:
Just because Sam knows how something is done doesn't mean he can actually do it, for example he may know exactly how a powerlifter positions himself a heavy lift doesn't mean he can actually perform it himself.

Several half siblings around the world
Samuel is a complicated individual, he is intelligent , stubborn , childish, sarcastic , narcissistic , arrogant , calculating and cold. He seems to care little about people except those who are close to him. He is a criminal who enjoys his schemes and views it as a game. He is a high-functioning sociopath and has found it very difficult to relate to basic human emotions , though he has emotions and can understand them he doesn't know WHY he has them and what their purpose is. He is someone who requires constant challenge and stimulation and is always looking for something to do or to prove himself.
He suffers from DID(Dissociative Identity Disorder) , to him it feels like he is thinking as several people , several 'versions' of himself all with their own traits and personalities. He is unable to see some social norms and doesn't care for them as they are illogical to him , this makes him rather crude and tactless and make him appear somewhat cold. He is manipulative and often makes people do what he wants using a variety of psychological tricks.
Though despite all of his bad traits he does have some good one's most notably his pacifism, Samuel despises violence and will only resort to it if there is no other choice. He would rather outwit or outrun an opponent before fighting them and rarely engages in it. He also is against killing unless absolutely necessary. He is also loyal to a fault to those he deems his friends, he has a hard time bonding on a personal level but when he does he will do anything to protect them.
Samuel was born as one of many, an experiment of the High Evolutionary who was trying to create a new breed of super intelligent soldiers for him. His mother was married to a man who was incapable of having children so they decided to adopt a child. The High Evolutionary had planted several genetically modified children around the world and Sam was one of them , chosen because his mother was a very smart individual with no close relatives which meant that his child would have few influences that could potentially hold him back from doing the High Evolutionary's bidding. Shortly after he was adopted her husband died of cancer and she was left to raise Sam alone, this proved an extremely difficult task as from a young age the boy showed signs of extreme intelligence but had found it difficult to connect to the world around him.
He grew up in London and had no friends to speak of, while other children were playing outside he was reading and understanding complex books that he got from the university where his mother was working as a librarian. He often went with her to work in his free time and read all the books he could, his mind was expanding but he had trouble with socialising and remained reclusive. At an early age of 4 he deduced that he was adopted but to his mother's disbelief did not care at all as he felt no sentiment to parents he didn't know. He chose to hide his knowledge and when in high school he pretended to be an average student. He never knew his father and grew up with only his mother in the picture and though she wasn't as smart as him he still cared for her.
Life was pretty normal for Sam, in high school he had finally made friends two other outcasts at the school, a Moroccan immigrant and a stoner. Sam taught his immigrant friend English and they noticed how smart he actually was. Together they spent most of their free time playing video games and doing drugs or just hanging on the street corner. Samuel's life would change forever though when his mother fell down the stairs and died from a broken neck. Sam was broken since he was only 17 years old and had no idea what to do with his life now he resorted to a life of crime. His friends joined with him at first and they worked from small time drug rings and pickpocketing but when Sam got bored with petty crimes and started doing bigger things they eventually drifted apart.
Sam was approached by the High Evolutionary who told him the story of his creation and purpose, the High Evolutionary told him that he had big plans for the boy when he reaches his prime and told him to prepare , promising him that he would give him knowledge beyond of anything he could imagine in exchange for his help. In the meantime Sam was determined to find someone who could give him a run for his money and figured what would be best, he wanted to leave London went to the United States where he could be challenged. he entered the city with no money in his pocket but on the first day he managed to scrap money together by finding one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives, using the reward money he bought several stocks in Wall Street which were sure to double in price in a few weeks. With whatever he had left he went to an illegal poker game and made enough money to buy himself a nice appartment and set him up well for the next months or so. But Sam found this to be dull and longed for adventure and the fear of getting caught, he resorted to crime again in the form of fraud , theft , forgery and other non-violent crimes. Constantly seeking the challenge he needs and waiting for the High Evolutionary to start whatever plans he has for him

BOOM! Headshot, the tv screen showed the iconic 'killcam' and Sam was smiling and reveling in his victory, he was good at the game and was often mistaken for a hacker while even though he could easily hack it it would be no fun to him as he enjoyed this much more. Sam looked at his watch and stood up before walking to the door while impatiently tapping his foot, as soon as the doorbell went off he opened to door and took a pizza box from the delivery boy while quickly shoving some money in his hand, "Thanks , mate! Keep the change." He closed the door and left the delivery boy standing there with a huge question mark on his face.
Sam grabbed a slice of the pizza and took a bite, He opened up his laptop and started typing rapidly , his eyes moving at an extremely fast pace and a large grin appeared on his face when he noticed something he'd hacked into a military server and had found something interesting, it was an experimental piece of military tech that had been stolen and the authorities had now idea. Sam was excited and quickly went through all of the information they had on the case, not because he wanted to catch the criminal but he wanted to steal the tech for himself so he could reverse engineer it and maybe sell it's secrets to the highest bidder. He'd often do things like that so he could keep his cash flow going and fund some of his projects.
He grabbed his jacket and ran out the door hopping into a taxi in the street , while in the back he was searching something on his phone and grinned. The taxi stopped at an old appartment and Sam stepped out of the car, he checked his hair in the reflection of a window and slicked it back a little. He knocked on the door and just as he expected no one opened, he grabbed two bobby pins from his pocket and fiddled with the lock until it opened with a satisfying 'click'. He searched through the appartment when he noticed something odd about the floor, there were some planks that were newer than the rest and that usually meant one thing, He pulled the planks and saw the piece of tech that he was looking for. "Aced it."
Sam was grinning while examining the item he had procured , it was a mechanical glove/gauntlet that increased the user's strength by a large margin. Sam could imagine what one punch from this could do and was fascinated, he left a letter with a message for the man who had stolen it , the letter said that he could buy it back from him for a reasonable price after Sam was done with it ofcourse. Sam knew the man wasn't going to report to the authorities because it was stolen before and the man who stole it was one of the lead engineers working on it, He had done a background check on everyone who had acces to the vault and noticed that one man had a crappy second appartment and from his bank transfers saw that that person had little money left so he'd resort to crime for some quick cash. With a grin and the item Sam walked back home while whistling a song.
