All's well that ends well
Keith Goodman (キース・グッドマン), alias Sky High (スカイハイ), is one of the most popular heroes in Sternbild and was "King of Heroes" for at least two years in a row.
Keith is usually depicted as a happy, good-hearted person who places a lot of emphasis on politeness and is often described as an airhead. He often repeats himself, such as in his favorite catchphrase "Thank you, and again, Thank you" (ありがとう、そしてありがとう, Arigato, soshite arigato) because he wants to make sure others understand him. He believes people do not take him seriously when he talks, which is partially why he often repeats himself - so people understand what he is trying to say. He takes being a hero seriously and is the most dedicated of the heroes, going on patrol every night even when he is not on the clock or working. He felt pride in being number one hero but never to the point of arrogance and understands the great pressure and expectations that come with the title, along with the fear of letting people down or not being able to protect people.
Jake Martinez and a City Held Captive
During the hero battles versus Jake Martinez, Sky High is the first opponent chosen. He assures the other heroes that he will end things quickly, and launches an all-out assault shortly after arriving at the intended battleground.
Unfortunately, none of his attacks so much as scratch Jake, who counters back and ultimately defeats him. Jake even manages to break the "horn" on Sky High's helmet. An unconscious Sky High is then seen hanging off the side of a building, his arms chained in a crucifixion-type pose. He is later taken down and brought to a hospital, where he recuperates with fellow injured heroes Rock Bison, Wild Tiger and Origami Cyclone.
The King of Heroes Dethroned
At the end of the previous Hero TV season, Barnaby Brooks Jr. has gained more points than Keith and become the King of Heroes. Coupled with the self-doubt he has harbored since his defeat by Jake, Keith falls into a depressed slump and his performance on Hero TV suffers poorly as a result.
While walking his dog, he comes across a young woman in the park whom he assumes to be a newly-awakened NEXT due to her inhuman strength. He starts coming to visit her on a regular basis, falls in love with her, and voices his current worries out loud. Even though she only speaks a few words to him, his interpretation of them leads to him regaining his confidence. Later, when an android causes havoc in the city and both Wild Tiger and Barnaby are unable to defeat it, Sky High steps in. Unaware that the android is actually the woman he had been visiting recently, he succeeds in destroying it.
His faith in his abilities restored, Keith decides to thank the young woman who had inspired him. He buys a bouquet of flowers and goes to wait on the park bench where they had met, but she never comes...
Keith is among the group Maverick gathers at a supposed announcement party, which instead serves as a means by which to use his NEXT powers to manipulate the memories of those present. As a result, Keith's memory of Kotetsu being Wild Tiger is altered so that he considers them two separate people. He and the rest of the heroes are then sent out to capture Kotetsu, who has been framed for the murder of Samantha Taylor. Sky High is the first hero to encounter Kotetsu and launches an onslaught of attacks, but is unable to catch him.
When the heroes manage to surround Kotetsu on Apollon Media's rooftop, Keith is stunned at the information Kotetsu uses to try and get him to remember: that he eats the egg yolk before the rest of the egg. After the heroes' memories are restored, Keith and the others are frustrated and confused that they had forgotten Kotetsu and are almost immediately thrown into battle against the False Wild Tiger android. Overpowered, they are all captured and locked in separate rooms, each with a bomb strapped around their neck. They are then informed that if one of them pushes the deactivation button, they will be allowed to leave but the others will all blow up. The heroes are given until the conclusion of the battle of Kotetsu and Barnaby vs. the H-01 android to decide - at which point all of them will explode.
Abilities and Powers
Sky High is able to create strong gusts of wind on command. This is first seen in episode 1 when he slows the descent of two falling civilians with an upwards gust. His powers were shown even more, during his battle with Jake, he created blasts of winds and a giant spiraling ball of wind. Though he is unable to fly utilizing his powers alone, he can float and then maneuver in the air through the assistance of his jetpack.
Sky High's hero suit is similar to the uniform worn by the Rocketeer. Like the Rocketeer, Sky High possesses a jetpack which he uses to fly. His sponsor logos appears on his chest (Ustream) and sleeves (Tamashii Nations).
Like most of the other heroes, his hero suit contains a "Lighting Mode" feature, whereby part of it lights up when his powers are active. The helmet also seems to contain the same sort of information readouts seen in Barnaby and Wild Tiger's visors. The top portion of his helmet was broken during the battle with Jake, but later is repaired with a cog made of the same material that Keith found near the bench Cis sat on. The cog is a piece of her android body. (Shown in the Manga)
Like all the Hero TV heroes Keith wears a simple "communicator" wristband which Agnes can use to contact him, usually to inform him of a crime being committed. The other heroes can also use this communicator to call him. Keith's communicator is white with purple bands around the edges.
