Kent Shakespeare is a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes in the 30th Century. His original codename was Impulse but he later dropped this. Born on Earth, he received powers when a virus replaced all the cells in his body with enhanced versions. This gives him superhuman strength, superhuman speed, and superhuman healing. He was active during the Five Years Later era, until he was erased from time during Zero Hour. There is also a younger version of Kent Shakespeare in Reboot Legion continuity as a cadet. Kent Shakespeare was created by Al Gordon, first appearing in Legion of Super-Heroes (Volume 4) #12. (1990)
