Quote1 I've been me my whole life, and i've had these powers for a year. I go to school, I come home. When you can do the things that I can, but you dont...and then the bad things happen...they happen because of you. Quote2
-- Manny when Superman asked him why he wanted to be a hero.

Born in The Suicide Slums of Metroplois. Manny was born in a broken home without a father. Him and his mother lived in a poor home. His mother was a very sweet woman when sober, but she was an alcoholic, going into fits of rage when she was drunk. Manny got into a lot of fights growing up, at school, around the neighborhood, wherever. He just seemed to be a beacon for bullies to try and mess with him.


He one day met this kid named Trey when he was 11 years old, Trey was 12 at the time and the two became good friends. Trey became somewhat of a mentor to him. But one day when Trey was staying the night over his house, while Manny's mother was at the bar. Trey had spiked Manny's drink with a roofie, and while he was gone he stole plenty of Manny's belongings. His mom came drunk and beat him furiously for letting Trey steal from them.

Lone Sharks

Manny's family never had good luck, so it wasn't long before his mom and him were broke without food and alcohol. So when Manny was 13, he got involved in a gambling game, when he kept losing, and a Lone Shark offered him 5,000 dollars to give Manny just had to "Pay him back". Manny had won the game, and earned 10,000 dollars. Manny was so happy, him and his mom could finally eat good food again. But about a year later when the man came back for his payback, Manny lied to the man saying he didn't have the money. The man aggressively grabbed Manny and told him he had a week to pay him back or he'd be sorry. Manny knew there was no way he could pay back the man so he moved him and his mother into a new house with the money they had.

We found you

Two years later Manny comes home from school to find his mother, tied up around 4 huge men. Manny didn't know what was happening, until the man he met two years ago showed up. "Hey kid, long time no see." He explains to Manny that he shouldn't have ran away from his debt, his mother didn't know what they were talking about. Manny had told his mother they had won the lottery, but he told her the truth about the Lone Shark. She said she understands and isn't angry with him. The lone shark asks Manny one more time if he has the money, this time, he really didn't. So the lone shark killed Manny's mother. Manny enraged, tried to fight the huge men but they were too big and powerful and they knocked Manny out. When Manny woke up, they were gone and he was lying in front of his mothers corps, crying over her dead body.

Project Continuum

Now just an orphaned boy, he was confronted by the military, who asked him if he would help benefit the world. Manny, having no other options agreed and left his home.

Manny quickly found out that the military was testing out Project CONTINUUM, which was a project to develop the first working Time Machine. Their was one problem, no one was willing to test it, and that's where Manny came in. Manny agreed only if that if it works, he can use it to bring his mother back to life, they agreed. Manny entered the time machine, but a malfunction happened while Manny was inside the space-time continuum. The machine broke and Manny was stuck inside the space-time continuum. Until he opened a portal out of it, and emerged from the continuum. The scientists were absolutely amazed. Little did they know, Manny emerged with the power to control space and time.

Manny does nothing

Manny was in his house, playing with his new powers, using space to manipulate gravity and levitating his couch. He decided not to go to school that day. He then goes to the store and sees a lady getting robbed by three teenagers, while he feels bad for her he does nothing, thinking it's not his problem. But later on he looks on the news to see that his school had been shot up by the same teenagers that robbed that lady. Killing 20 and injuring 40 in the school, with his best friends being some of the casualties. Manny realizes that if he would've helped that lady and stopped them, his friends would still be alive. Depression sinks in as Manny decides that he will never ignore a cry for help again.

Continuum is born

Manny goes outside with an old skull sip up hoodie and black jeans. He then walks around the city and sees an apartment building caving in with people still inside. He runs inside at the protest of police and begins saving people and levitating them out of the crumbling building. however, it was taking too long and he was getting desperate and concentrating all of his power, he accidentally created a portal for people to enter to get out of the building. When the portal starts to close Manny hears a cry from a little girl, he looks around, finds her and jumps through the portal just in time before the building collapses. The mother of the little girl is happy and saying she owes him her life, and asks for his name. Manny, not wanting anyone to know his identity quickly says "Uh...Continuum? Yeah. Yeah! Continuum!". Manny then runs off to his house deciding he did a good job, but he was exhausted from using his powers and took a nap. Thus, Continuum was born.

An unexpected invitation

One day, someone knocks on Manny's door and sees it's reporter Clark Kent. Manny lets him in and asks what he's doing here, at first Clark is nice and polite and asks how he is and then cuts to the chase, he knows that Manny is "Continuum". Manny quickly denies but Clark pressed on until Manny told Clark to get out. He reluctantly starts to leave but quickly throws a chair at Manny and he stops it in mid air. Clark then tells Manny that he won't tell Manny's secret as long as Manny doesn't tell his and reveals himself to be the Superman. Clark then asks Manny why he wants to help people and why he wants to be a hero. Manny replies with "I've been me my whole life, and i've had these powers for a year. I go to school, I come home. When you can do the things that I can, but you dont...and then the bad things happen...they happen because of you." Clark then offers many in a spot in "New team" of the Justice League. Manny excepts and goes with Superman to the Watch Tower.


Manny is fun, cool, and full of mischievous ideas. He is also a very quick-thinking individual. He is confident in his own abilities. Manny is a calm, cool, collected teen who is not afraid to go far beyond his limits. This shows through when he shows no real complaints about obtaining his powers, he just decided that he would use them to help people.

On the other hand he loves to make jokes, especially to his friends. He will tease and make fun of his friends in joking ways, such as calling Mark a "Batman cosplayer" and saying lets take Khalil to Sea World one day. Even during battle he will sometimes make jokes on the enemies appearance or style. He also sees his heroics and fighting evil as an opportunity to have fun, making him somewhat of a thrill-seeker and enjoys any challenge that passes him.

Manny also possesses an indomitable force of will; in situations where most others would give up and resign themselves to defeat or imprisonment, and in situations where he is severely outnumbered and outgunned, he always forges on, never loses faith in himself and never quits or submits. However, this can also lead to him being on the brink of death against more powerful opponents. His personality is a juxtaposition of kindness and ferocity. He is extremely benevolent and firmly stands for freedom, but he is never the one to rest in the face of injustice or oppression.

He feels responsible for his friends and anything bad that happens to them. He will risk his life for his friends and even a complete stranger, this has almost gotten him killed plenty of times.

However, this is somewhat of a facade.

Many's other side is an utterly tormented and lonely being, and is rarely shown when he is in the company of others. Due to his hard life, he has lost many friends and his only family. In several instances people he trusted have either betrayed him or been killed. His entire life has been filled with hardships and loss. Thus, he is often prone to brooding and depression whilst alone or engaging in deep introspective thought.


Manny is african-american with black dread locks down to his shoulders. He has an average athletic build. He is pretty tall, being 6 feet. Manny looks rather old for his age, having quite a bit of facial hair.

Powers and Abilities


Manny can manipulate both Space and Time. This power gives him the abilities to,

  • Space-Time Manipulation: Continuum is able to manipulate, distort or bend the space-time continuum, the fabrics of reality in which all exist in. Of course as he just obtained his powers, he cannot use them to a devastating effect yet. Continuum can manipulate the time in general area or a specific target in various manners, the basics revolving around accelerating, slowing, stopping and even rewinding or looping. The range of area affected is proportional to the mastery of the user, with top levels can affect the entire space and time continuum.
  • Distortion: Continuum can create distortions in the space time continuum. Such as creating small portals.
  • Gravity Control: By manipulating space, Continuum can basically manipulate gravity itself.
  • Speed Blitz: Continuum manipulates time on himself and makes his time accelerate while he runs, making him run super sonic speeds. His speed is still nothing compared to a speedster though.
  • Biologically Immortal: Continuum is biologically immortal, meaning he no longer ages. He can however still die from wounds that humans can die from. He also still needs sustenance and still needs to sleep to have energy.
  • Chronokinetic Immunity: Continuum is immune to temporal/time based powers, they cannot be frozen in time, slowed or even Time Travel. This unfortunately negates his original purpose for signing up for the project, he can't go back in time to save his mother.


  • Hand-to-Hand Combat (Basic) Due to training with Black Canary, Manny is able to fight and hold his won against very capable fighters. He has a basic knowledge of martial arts, though he would still lose in a hand-to-hand only fight against someone like Swarm.
  • Eidetic Memory
