MICHAEL BRANDEIS WAS BORN IN A DUMPSTER ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF CHICAGO AND, AFTER BEING DISCOVERED, WAS PLACED

INTO THE STATE FOSTER CARE SYSTEM. HE WAS ALWAYS SMALLER THAN THE OTHER KIDS, WHICH LED TO HIS QUICK WIT AND USE OF BRAIN POWER RATHER THAN BRAWN. HE LEARNED AT AN EARLY AGE THAT EDUCATION WAS THE ONLY WAY OUT OF HIS SITUATION AND APPLIED HIMSELF IN SCHOOL, RESULTING IN A CHEMICAL ENGINEERING DEGREE FROM STANFORD. ALWAYS FAVORING THE OPPRESSED, HE WAS ATTEMTPTING TO CREATE A CHEAP FORM OF POWER WHICH WOULD BENEFIT THE LESS PREIVILEDGED WHEN HE WAS EXPOSED TO THE NUCLEAR/CHEMICAL FIRE RESULTING IN HIS POWERS. IT IS HIS BELIEF THAT THE “EXPERIMENT GONE WRONG” WAS A RESULT OF CERTAIN UNDERWORLD INDIVIDUALS WHO WERE TRYING TO STEAL HIS IDEAS FOR PROFIT. HE HAS VOWED TO STAMP OUT CRIME WHEREVER HE FINDS IT AS LIFE IS HARD ENOUGH FOR THE UNDERPRIVILEGED.
