Mutant powers:

(DUMB LUCK) Big Trouble can uncounsciously generate a special energetic aura able to "warp" the probability lines running through the fabric of the reality which surround him, to the point each minimum negative effort he does can instantly translate into the maximum positive result. The chance warping also acts as a kind of protection, since simple acts as running or being firmly on a place work as feedback "answers" to either types of external attack (bullets; weapons; lightening bolts) and accidental factors of menace.
It's not known the extent of this power, since it was never tested.

(REFLEXES) Augmented neuronal impulses enhance his physical reactions and allow them to be perfectly tuned with optical perception.


Acquired powers:

State of self-confidence induced by the Six-Demon Bag serum (a miscela of wind and fire condensed).

Janetbrand was a spammer, ignore her.

But in all fairness, it was an excellent creative effort on your part. Smile

Call me crazy, but I always wished Jack could replace Gambit in the team one day.
Anyway, huge thanks.

Jack strikes me more as a solo act than a team member. But replacing Gambit with anything is an improvement.
