KIA is a perfect human specimen, down to the cellular level. This perfection is displayed in his mental and physical abilities being the highest possible standard for a human being to be without being considered superhuman.
Tactigon: The Tactigon is a multi-dimensional alien device that is able shift into an infinite number of weapons and tools with a built in safety designed to give the wearer exactly what she or he needs to get the job done.
Michael van Patrick was one of the greatest student athletes in the country. Although MVP didn't possess any special powers, his body was genetically perfect. Michael was recruited by Justice as part of the Initiative and took the name MVP. MVP was killed during an incident when Armory's Tactigon raged out of control. After his death Dr. Blitzschlag performed cloning experiments on MVP's body, first cloning it at least four times. One of the clones was given the identity of the late Michael van Patrick and sent back home. Killed.In.Action.
KIA was one of the successive clones of the MVP. The clone, who was distinguished by his whited out eyes, had Armory's moves programmed into him in preparation to use the Omega-Level weapon that killed the original MVP. The Tactigon interfaced with this clone's mind activating latent memories of the real MVP's death. Hacking into the Initiative's computer, the clone learned of his "death" and gained a list of all those who had been present at the time.
