Impact is the metal skinned, wise-cracking, giant of Cyberforce. He later sacrificed himself to help the team escape a doomed alien ship.
Impact, the super sized strong man of Cyber-Force was born Boomer O’Shea. Boomer grew up in Malibu, CA, with his father who was a respected scientist. He was just a normal kid who loved to surf, but he grew increasingly worried about his father who was completely obsessed with the experiment he was working on. Boomer had no idea that his father's experiment would drastically alter him forever.
His father had been in contact with an interstellar being called, Korvus. Korvus had been leaving a path of destruction across the galaxies while battling his enemy, “Huntar”. During one of these battles, the two titans crashed into a mining planet known as Vegar. On the planet, Huntar grabbed Korvus and threw him into a near by space jump portal. The portal was a manufactured wormhole. The two giant combatants dissolved in the gateway.
Back on Earth, Korvus’ spirit was desperately in search of a vessel large enough to contain his enormous amounts of energies without destroying the body. Korvus provided Boomer’s father with technological achievements, centuries more advanced than his own. Korvus wanted Boomer’s father to create a growth serum so he could take control of someone’s body. Korvus was rapidly becoming impatient that the serum was taking so long and threatened his life. As such, Boomer's father became worried about his own life & therefore decided to use the serum on Boomer.
When the lights went out in the house, Boomer stumbled into his father’s basement. There his father attacked him, injecting the growth serum into his neck. Instantly the serum began to take effect on Boomer. It caused his body to grow in both height and size. As soon as Boomer’s body was large enough Korvus seized control of his body. Realizing what he had done, Boomer's father attempted to amend his mistakes by attacking the creature. However, he was thrown across his lab and smashed down into some chemicals, causing a gigantic explosion. Korvus, fled in pain from his damaged vessel, leaving Boomer in charge of his own body once again. The horror of seeing his father dead combined with the pain from his own horribly burned and disfigured body, Boomer passed out.
Boomer later woke in a burns center, where he was informed that his entire body has third degree burns and severe nerve damage. A man from a company called Cyberdata assured him that he would not only get medical attention, but guaranteed him a full recovery. All Boomer had to do was agree to work for the company. Boomer agreed and soon his entire body was grafted with a nearly indestructible metal alloy. He had a computer implanted in his brain to ensure that he would remain loyal to the company. He took on the name: Impact!
He became part of Cyberdata’s cybernetically enhanced strike team, The S.H.O.C.K.s. Impact was later approached by Dr. Corben, one of Cyberdata’s chief scientists, and was told the truth about the organization. Dr. Corben removed Impact’s brain box and provided him with a disc containing all the information needed to escape. Impact realized that he enjoyed thinking for himself and escaped Cyberdata. He was joined by four other former S.H.O.C.K.S. member who Dr. Corben had helped escape; Heatwave, Ripclaw, Cyblade, and Stryker.
