Powers & Abilities

Known Superhuman Powers

Gee can negate the force of gravity on himself and other objects by generating anti-gravitons. In order to reduce the pull of gravity on an object, Gee must be in physical contact with that object.

The actual maximum amount of mass Gee can affect with his power is unknown. But in the past he has used his ability to negate the force of gravity on his father’s matter/anti-matter converter. It was an enormous object that weighed dozens of tons.

Gee can also increase the pull of gravity on himself by generating gravitons. In the past he has used this ability to resist a tractor beam which generated a force equivalent to six times Earth’s gravity.

Other assets

While Jack Power had this particular ability, he used it to traverse inclined surfaces, or even to simulate superhuman strength by vastly increasing the gravitation pull upon a single hand and then striking it against an opponent.

Finally, like all members of the Power Pack, Alex’s body heals itself at a highly increased rate. He can fully recover from broken bones within days and has a high degree of immunity to human disease.

With concentration, Alex and his siblings have discovered that they can increase their rate of healing exponentially. This allows them to heal grievous injuries or sickness almost instantly.

Paraphenalia

Gee wears a special uniform (created by the smart-ship Friday), which is stored “Elsewhere” until he commands it to materialize. The costume protects him from temperature extremes, and is highly resistant to tearing. It also has a transmitter within it that allows him to communicate with Friday, the team’s Smartship.

Furthermore, the costume has pockets which are actually apertures into an adjacent dimension. Alex can store and retrieve objects from the pockets which clearly should not be able to fit within them. The maximum carry capacity of the “magic” pockets is currently revealed.


History

(A general history of the Power Pack can be found in the Team’s own WORG entry.)


Description

Alex is a fairly typical looking tween. He is of average height and build, and he wears his blond hair in a close cropped style with a slight tuft in the front. Like all of the power siblings, Alex has bright blue eyes and freckles.

Gee (Alex Power) uses his power to lift a truck

Alex’s costume is a stark white unitard that covers him from neck to boot. The right sleeve of the unitard is pitch black, as well as a stripe that runs down the right side of her body and a square patch that runs from her neck to the middle of his torso.

Within the centre of the black patch on his chest, is a line diagram of the ground and a pair of square objects suspended above them. This image is simplified representation of his power to reduce the force of gravity on objects. A pair of silver ridged boots complete his costume. The boots are reminiscent of those an astronaut may wear.

When Gee utilizes his powers, small black (when decreasing gravity’s pull on an object) or white (when increasing gravity’s pull) rectangular marks appear on his forearms and lower legs, and quite often at the point of contact that he has with said object.

When Gee utilizes his powers in costume, the main body of the costume shifts to match the colour of the rectangles on his forearms and legs.


Personality

Alex is the oldest Power sibling. As such, he has been forced to accept a greater amount of responsibility than his younger peers. He shoulders that responsibility with a great deal more maturity than one would expect of a youth his age. But like many other tween boys, is still prone to bouts of bravado, immaturity and thoughtless behaviour.

Alex has a true sense of heroism within him, and often drives the other siblings to action. He acts as the groups de facto leader. When encountering other heroes throughout their adventures, Alex strove to be seen as a responsible and mature hero. He was especially impressed by individuals like Spider-Man and Thor.

Alex has just recently discovered girls, and has an intense crush on a particularly cute young lady named Allison. He speaks about her relentlessly to his other siblings, which generally annoys them to the point of arguments.


DC Universe History

Alex and his siblings could be imported wholesale into the DC Universe where they would most likely be raised in Metropolis. There they would end up encountering a myriad of superhuman beings, the foremost of whom would be Superman, of course.
