ROLE IN THE TEAM
If you look at his Hack skill, Lightning may not look like your typical TechnoTick, but he's got a lot more than meets the eye. Thanks to his overall balanced skill values he makes for a fairly decent enforcer, and his ability to move three squares means he is very flexible. But most of all, his second ability makes him a pretty dangerous hacker.
Lightning's unique skill allows him to give a hacked token to any flyer who is pushed or grappled by him, or who pushes or grapples him. What this allows him to do is act as a deterrent, and sometimes you'll see even the most powerful enforcers in the opposing teams just try to dodge him to avoid receiving those pesky hacked tokens.
