Andrew Detmer

"A lion does not feel guilty when it kills a gazelle. You do not feel guilty when you squash a fly. And I think that means something. I just think that really means something."


Andrew Detmer was a main protagonist before becoming the main antagonist of the 2012 film, Chronicle. He is a high school teenager who began videotaping his day-to-day life. Andrew on his computer before his father comes in and beats him out of his chair. At home, he is bullied by his abusive and alcoholic father, who is bitter about a firefighting injury that forced him into retirement, and it couldn't get any worse with the fact that his mother is dying of cancer. At school Andrew is unpopular and friendless, and constantly bullied.

He was portrayed by Dane DeHaan, who also portrayed the Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Attack Potency: Human level physically, Small Building level (One of his telekinetic attacks blew up a room and was compared to an explosion, capable of telekinetically crushing an entire car or blowing away multiple police cars at once with a large telekinetic shockwave. Threw a bus hard enough to shatter the front of a building), can bypass conventional durability by aiming for internal organs.

Stamina: Physically human, can fight for at least a few minutes constantly via his telekinesis.

Range: Dozens of meters

Standard Equipment: None notable (probably a video camera)

Intelligence: Academically smart but nothing out of the ordinary. Andrew was quick to learn his new powers. On the other hand Andrew was pretty bold/stupid as a criminal.

Weaknesses: He's physically still human and can be easily caught off-guard. His telekinetic shielding only works for a moment, requiring him to time each incoming threat individually. At the height of his power Andrew was emotionally unstable and rather easy to provoke. Andrew is unable to bullet time and as such he's easily susceptible to gunfire.
