Allen is the main character of Hero's Retribution, one of the many new series created by LeeHatake93 that aren't part of the Brawl Legends or B.O.N.D. continuities. It is set in a world of super-powered humans who unlock unique abilities throughout their lives. Hero's Retribution would also spawn a video game that combines the superhero genre of inFamous with the expansive sandbox-styled gameplay of games like Bully and Grand Theft Auto. The player would control Allen in an open-world environment where he is free to climb and enter buildings, slide across high wires, interact with civilians, and even drive vehicles, a feature that is uncommon in the superhero genre. Along with driving them, Allen is able to do tricks and other stunts such as surfing on top of vehicles and super-charging them to be able to do impossible stunts, such as driving up the side of skyscrapers and driving on water. Vehicles play a major role in the series as Allen is able to use his unique superpower, called Gyrokinesis, to manipulate them in many ways, such as improving their performance or taking them apart to build weapons and even armor or flying equipment.
