Josiah takes on a monstrous, grey, stone-like appearance and energy starts to sparkle around him, at which time he gains great strength and possibly other energy powers.
The impressively tall, massive Josiah Power was one of America’s best lawyers until his meta-gene was triggered during the alien invasion. Shortly afterwards, he transformed into a monstrous creature while in court. Although the effect was soon reversed, his career as a lawyer had been effectively ruined. Working his way through a subsequent depression and other problems, Josiah eventually found a way to combine his old skills and newfound abilities. Why not found a business of super-heroes for hire, structured like a law firm, with partners and associates working for paying clients? So was born the Power Company.
Although now having learned to control his power, Josiah’s interest lies not in adventuring, but in the business itself. He rarely participates in the Company’s missions, but has made exceptions when his friends need him, like the recent adventure in the world of Ashalanti.
Josiah lives together with his life partner Rupe in a big mansion outside San Fransisco.
