Thunderbolt can run at superhuman speed.
Through some means, Luis obtained the power of superhuman speed while in high school. Coming from a poor family, he was afraid that after he graduated, he wouldn't be able to afford college unless he received a scholarship.
(Incredible Hulk Annual#17/4)- Justin Hammer learned of Luis' powers and dispatched Ringer, Blacklash and Barrier to apprehend him so that he could make him a job offer. Playing off of Luis' dreams for college, he presented him with the costume of the deceased hero Thunderbolt to use as his own. He directed Luis to help the three criminals steal plans to an experimental plane from the Edwards Air Force Base, claiming it was only a test, but Achilles and Ulysses of the Pantheon arrived to warn Luis of Hammer's criminal status.
Luis donned the Thunderbolt costume and tried to help the Pantheon against the villains, but the Ringer's rings bound his legs. Blacklash attempted to strike him while he was down, but Luis was able to untangle himself and brought down Blacklash with a single punch. Although Luis was left with no means of going to college, Ulysses noted that at least now he was on the right track.
(Civil War: Battle Damage Report) - Tony Stark considered Luis as a potential Initiative recruit.
