Fictional character biographyEdit

The impressively tall, craggy featured Josiah Power was one of America’s best lawyers until his metagene was triggered during the alien Invasion by the activation of the Gene Bomb.[1]

Following the untimely public activation of his metagene in the court room, corporate attorney Josiah Power was dismissed from his law firm. Power had little interest in becoming a traditional costumed hero, but it became readily apparent that he could not continue to practice law without undue public attention.

Power CompanyEdit

Main article: Power Company

Working his way through a short depression and other problems, Josiah eventually found a way to combine his old skills and newfound abilities. He decided to found a business of superheroes for hire, structured like a law firm, with partners and associates.

He called his new team, the Power Company. During his tenure in the team, he was put into a coma from a gunshot wound and Firestorm became an associate. He has since recovered and has continued active duty. Josiah lives with his life partner Rupert.

Powers and abilitiesEdit

  • He rarely participates in the Company’s missions. He has made exceptions but only when the situation was dire. When he activates his powers Josiah transforms into a monstrous, grey, stone-like seven foot giant, and an energy corona begins to spark about his body. He gains great strength, invulnerability and possibly other energy based powers.[2]
  • At one point, after seeing him in action, Superman stated that Josiah was one of the most powerful metas he'd ever met.
