Feedback's appearance is actually a black containment suit.[DJW 1] He has one green eye in the middle of his head, two antennae and a tail with round plugs on their tips, four-fingered hands, and feet with only two front toes.
16-year-old Feedback is more muscular than his 11-year-old self, his chest is recolored green, his antennae are noticeably longer, and the plugs on his fingers are now square. He also has gold battery bolts on his shoulders, arms and hips.
Powers and Abilities
Similar to Chromastone, Feedback has the ability to absorb and redirect any kind of energy, most commonly electricity. This ability is refined to the point that Feedback can redirect energy at near-point-blank range. He absorbs energy through the plug-like conductors on his antennae, tail, and fingers.
Feedback can use stored energy to generate electrical charges, which can be used as ranged attacks or to empower his punches.
Feedback can fire energy balls by joining his fingers and absorbing the energy out of electric devices.
Feedback has enhanced agility and jumping abilities, and possesses enhanced speed but only while running quickly on power lines.
Feedback has enhanced strength, as he can punch a boulder apart with ease.
Feedback can fly by projecting energy behind him like a jet engine.
Feedback needs to absorb energy from time to time to fight because the energy contained within him will deplete with use.
Like Chromastone, there is a limit to how much energy Feedback can absorb.[MW 1]
