Origins:  Sergei and his sister Katarina grew up in a wealthy Russian crime family but were insulated from the business for most of their
early life. As he hit his teens, Sergei started partying a lot at nightclubs around the globe. He first started hearing about the criminal
dealings that his family was involved in from his wealthy Russian friends, so he sought to learn the truth. Sergei’s father was honest with
him up to a point and alleged that the family fortunes were due to a string of underground casinos in Russia and a few discreet holdings in
Las Vegas and Atlantic City.  This fascinated Sergei and he was placed in the charge of his uncle to learn the casino business in Las Vegas.  
In this role Sergei picked up everything extremely quickly, rooting out con men and internal cheats by creating a reputation that such
problems were dealt with harshly. He had money, women, cars, jewelry, liquor and gambling and wanted for very little until the world-wide
event that would come later to be known as
"The Neogen Flux." Sergei's powers manifested uncontrollably one night, nearly killing the
escort he was with when their bed crashed through to a lower floor.  Though Sergei was unharmed, she suffered serious injuries but no
construction flaws were uncovered. The next night when  he was standing next to his uncle, Sergei's mass induction abilities brought down
a portion of the second floor crashing into the first floor in a disaster that injured thirty-one patrons though, fortunately, no one was killed.
The destruction, however, included the office preparing the casino's deposits and the result was millions of dollars blowing about freely on
the streets of Las Vegas. The expenses to rebuild the casino, settle lawsuits and write off lost profits looked to cost the family millions of
dollars. Sergei was removed from his casino manager position, sent back to Russia and isolated like an outcast.  His father brought in the
finest doctors to examine Sergei but even one of the specialists became a victim of one of his uncontrollable power surges. The doctor's
mass underwent runaway reduction until he dissipated into nothingness. Worried about the magnitude of damage that Sergei might cause
the family and its fortunes, Sergei was flown to join the UN initiative to explore those affected by
"The Neogen Flux," the name given to the
global phenomenon that triggered recent maximum evolutionary genetic advancements in random members of Earth's human race.
Sergei spent the travel time trying to exert improved control over his uncanny new abilities with some measure of success. On one of
Magnum's first training sessions with ANGEL Corps, he arrived smoking a cigar and carrying a magnum of expensive champagne to kick off
the session! The ANGEL Corps' venerated combat systems trainer, Exigon, was not amused and needled Sergei by assigning him the code
name
Magnum from that day forward.
Powers:  Sergei can manipulate with precision the mass of any given field of matter and rapidly increase or decrease it, including his own
physical form. This gives him the power to increase the mass of matter so dramatically that it not only becomes super-heavy in a
gravitational environment, but he can also cause the matter to  generate its own gravity field. Conversely, his ability to reduce the mass of
matter can render it super-lightweight in a gravitational field, but can also cause it to become intangible. Sergei is able to do this with his
own form as well. By precision manipulation of air mass and his own mass, Sergei is able to fly.
Strength Level Unassisted:
Class 1-A Baseline Human Range.
Level 4.
Can press 400 Lbs.
Strength Level Power-Assisted:
Class 3. Hyperhuman Range.
Level 8.
Can press 25 Tons.
Arsenal:  Sergei's wealth as afforded him the freedom to indulge his interest in guns and other weapons. He has an extensive weapons
collection and is an expert marksman with many of them.
Fighting Prowess: Sergei had the advantage of being able to work out in a home gymnasium with trainers for his entire life. His father had
him trained in Combat and Freestyle Sambo, a Russian form of martial arts. He rose to that form's highest level becoming a Distinguished
Master of Sports and winning many tourneys, but he eventually tired of the clean living discipline the art required. While he still works out
routinely, Sergei feels entirely comfortable drinking alcoholic beverages and smoking cigarettes from time to time. What toll that will take on
his progress through ANGEL Corps training is unkown at this time but he seems to be doing okay for now.
Gear:
Standard Nanotech Armored Protection Gear (SNAP-Gear), lightweight uniforming system equipped with onboard computer array, variable
feed power sources, life-support, networking and armored protection. A voice-activated onboard computer ties into tactical local and wide-
area networks using a “heads-up” holographic transparent 17-inch display panel while it monitors its wearer’s physiology. A shield mode
provides operatives head-to-toe protection.   
Adairian Adaptive memory molecules enable SNAP-GEAR uniforms to adapt to a host’s application of wide arrays of energies. SNAP-Gear is
able to transform into a small inventory of various non-combat outfits pre-loaded by its user.  
ANGEL Com (Communications Device), a neural transceiver implant that responds to basic cybernetic commands. The device utilizes ultra-
sophisticated cerebellinguistic algorithm codes to translate human languages. Once set, the device automatically translates and feeds
languages or dialects in one’s native tongue directly into the ear with an average translatability percentage ratio of 94.6% for all known
language patterns.
