Power Pack attack! It's been a while since anyone's heard that battle cry. But now, one-quarter of that famous foursome is back in action. Alex Power spends his days as a (slightly above) average high school student and his nights (after homework, natch) fighting for JUSTICE. Evil-doers, beware! (Part of) the Pack is back!

Description

Description:

Light hair and bright eyes give this teenager a friendly and approachable vibe. The hair on his head is thick and full-bodied, blonde fringes often falling into clear, blue eyes. His face is pleasantly round, with a squarish chin, a slender nose, and expressive dark blonde eyebrows, and free of blemishes save a scar or three. He's a little on the taller side for his age, with a build that's athletically lean.

His hero getup consists of a white bodysuit, dominated by black rectangles and squares that cover his right arm, part of left, and both his legs. The one on his chest forms a strange symbol, but for those with knowledge beyond Earth, it is the Kymellian symbol for gravity. The uniform is outlined with white, and his feet are covered in ankle-high astronaut boots.

History

History:

Alex Power is the firstborn of Margaret and James Power. A sister joined him a year later, then a brother, then another sister. As a boy, he admired and took after his father who was a well-respected professional in the scientific community. He and his siblings' lives changed forever when their father, who was working for the United States government, built a machine that could produce large amounts of energies by combining matter and anti-matter.

An alien Kymellian named Aelfyre Whitemane learned his father's discovery and intended to stop it as he found out that the device was near identical to the one that destroyed his ancient homeworld. And then there was another alien race, the Zn'rx, who planned to take this device, or the knowledge on how to construct it, and use it to conquer inhabited worlds. The Snarks kidnapped Alex's parents attempting to force Dr. Power to reveal the secret of his device. Whitemane was able to save the Powers children, including Alex, from being captured but was fatally injured in the process. Dying, the alien gave one of his powers to each of the four Power children and told them to use their new abilities to save their world.

Alex received the power to control gravity and took up the name Gee, and the four children called themselves Power Pack. They defeated the Snarks, rescued their parents, and destroyed Dr. Power's dangerous matter/anti-matter converter, saving the Earth from destruction. The four children continued to their adventures as Power Pack, assisted by Whitemane's Kymellian Smartship, Friday.

Somewhere along the line, they hung their capes as the weight and trauma of what they were doing caught up to them, but after a bit of growing up and some therapy, Alex wants to establish himself as an individual, claiming the name 'Zero-G' and striking out as a solo hero.

Personality

Personality:

Alex is the poster child for the responsible hero. The fate of his loved ones and the whole Earth, in some respects, was entrusted with him at a tender age, and to him, heroism is a duty and honor both and one that he will never take lightly. It can make him seem too serious for his age, the weight of what he does, but he remains caring, protective of his friends, and confident in his ability to make a change.

Whitey's last words, "Save your world..." resonate with him to this day, and well, he has saved this world plus a few others and doesn't plan on stopping anytime soon.

Abilities

Click to expand.

Gravitokinesis:
A gift from the Kymellian sorcerer Aelfyre "Whitey" Whitemane, Alex has the ability to create fields of gravitons and anti-gravitons, theoretical subatomic particles that possess or counter gravitational attraction. These fields are more or less invisible but leave a footprint of minute, black particles over his arms or legs and the affected objects. They allow him to increase or decrease the weight of himself as well as other people or objects around him and even control gravitational pull for direction. It is easier for him to be in contact with the person or object, but time and experience have matured his ability and his fields can extend around a city block, without strain.

This power can be broadly broken down into decreasing or increasing the effect of gravity. He can negate the gravity such that he can lift and move objects weighing several tons, and increase it to ten times Earth's gravity. A tank could be as light as a feather while a broomstick might weigh as much as a treadmill. In the past, Alex has lifted landmasses and sunken naval vessels within this limit, as well as suspended bulky alien creatures in their own weight, but at large scales, he loses fine control and finds it difficult to act against momentum.

By careful reduction of the gravity around him, he also can fly! Originally, he needed assistance for direction and speed, but nowadays he can hover and move at will by altering the gravitational pull of his body. His top speeds are capped at Julie's cruising speed: almost hypersonic but not yet breaking the sound barrier.

Lastly and certainly least by Alex's estimation, he can increase the gravity on himself or a part of his body, and effectively deliver a heavy, super-gravitized blow. This was invented and coined "Super-G punch" by Jack.

Healing:

All of Power Pack have the ability to heal themselves by transferring life force, usually on a subconscious level. It works best when the four are united, but Alex has demonstrated his capability to access this on his own. At peak and with concentration, he heals at a highly increased rate and has an enhanced immunity to sickness: sicknesses, even supernatural, and grievous injuries heal almost instantly. Even without the others, he can still bounce back from injuries at half the rate of a normal person.

Skills

Gifted Mind:
Alex is a gifted student with an incredible work ethic. He consistently passes his classes with flying colors and already scored a perfect on the SAT. He has a mind for numbers and shows particular talent with chemistry and biology.

Tech:

Since before he hit middle school, Alex has been handling alien technology, far superior to what can be commonly found on Earth, and his natural intellect paired with experience in advanced coding and super gadgets gives him a definite edge when in this field.

Resources

Click to expand.

Contacts:
During his years in Power Pack, Alex established connections to all sorts of superheroes, scientists, mythical creatures, and alien ambassadors. He's even been adopted into a Kymellian dynasty. The Pack is particularly well known in New York, where they're based, but they have been out of commission for a while now, and puberty hit Alex like a truck! In space, where their deeds have become history to certain species, they literally fought and resolved intergalactic wars. You may have seen those human hatchlings flying around in a sleek space cruiser.

Kymellian Costume:
Made with Kymellian tech and unstable molecules, this costume is unaffected by the negative effects of Alex's powers and resistant to tearing. With a simple command, it appears from and disappears into an extradimensional space, altering itself for specific necessities such as space travel or underwater adventures. It also contains a built-in communicator, a translator (containing Earth's languages and most alien tongues), and a pocket dimension with a capacity of storing about twelve cubic feet of space, provided the item can pass through the foot-long opening.

Smartship Friday:
Friday is a starship which is controlled by a computer system so advanced that it is effectively sentient, with a human-like personality. Friday acts as a well-meaning mentor and advisor to Power Pack. They are an all-purpose, all-terrain vehicle, equipped with gravity/anti-gravity pods and the ability to shift the interior and exterior to adjust to circumstances on land, sea, air, or space, and provide comfort. Friday is capable of synthesizing equipment and food and performing repairs.

The Pack:

The Powers are a super close-knit bunch and provide a solid emotional foundation for superhero business. Without his parents or his siblings, there's no way Alex could do the things he does, and despite everything, he knows he can count on them for support and vice versa. Always.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Bad Rep:
Because of the fame Alex obtained when he was younger as a member of Power Pack, he's often associated with them to this day. This isn't always a bad thing, but truth be told, they were just a bunch of kids. Sometimes he just isn't taken seriously because of it.

Family:
Alex feels very responsible for his siblings, even as they approach adulthood, and especially so towards his parents. Sometimes his concern for his family clouds his judgement, and he will make rash decisions in order to protect them.

Pack Bond:
Power Pack is a family affair, and the siblings have shared much in their lifetime. They share an origin, and have even swapped powers from time to time. Consequently, some of their secondary powers lessen when not in proximity to each other

Power Source:
The Kymellian race have the latent potential for superpowers, and those among them that master theirs are called Sorcerers (no relation to how earthlings think of magic or sorcery). This source can be unreliable and change hands just as easily as the dying Kymellian explorer Whitey gave his abilities to the Power children. An especially powerful Kymellian Sorcerer could strip Alex's powers from him (as he did to his siblings once) and technology that stimulates this process can, too.

Rogues' Gallery:
Every established hero has their set of villains, and Power Pack is no different. Their enemies span from the playground bully that brought a gun to school to demonic corporate heads and on to the entirety of an alien race known as the Z'Narx. The small intergalactic bounty recently placed on his head doesn't help.

Temper:

Alex is a smart kid, but he gets frustrated easily. His worsts outbursts are in the past, as this character flaw has softened with age, but he has been known to lash out whenever someone (likely a good friend or family) does something he feels is wrong or irresponsible...but he's never afraid to apologize afterward.
