Someone changed you, made you into a perfect weapon: superhumanly tough, incredibly strong, and uniquely skilled at fighting. Decide how each of those abilities manifests.
What I thought would be funny is a Lightning Bruiser, a speedster whose shtick is
speed without any of the physics cheats characters like the Flash use. Instead they just brute-force their way up to superhuman velocities, thus the enhanced strength (needed to get up to speed) and durability (needed to survive super-speed). The downside for the character is they start having regrettable effects on their immediate environment once they break Mach One, thus their appellation: Maelstrom.
This isn't an angsty character:
From their point of view, they always have lots of time to carefully think through each situation, to consider how not to splut the squishies.
My question is, at what speed would Maelstrom be blinded by plasma as the heat of fiction with the air ionizes it?
Wait: second question: do speed limits apply to pedestrians?
