History: Alex Power is the oldest child of Dr. Jame Power, a physicist who was working for the United States government on a means of producing large quantities of energies cheaply through combining matter and anti-matter. (The subatomic particles composing anti-matter have opposite charges to those of the equivalent particles of matter itself. When matter contacts anti-matter, both are converted entirely into vast quantities of energies.)

An alien Kymellian named Aelfyre Whitemane (nicknamed "Whitey") learned of Power's discovery and intended to stop it. White mane knew that a device such as Power's would, despite Power's good intentions, trigger a chain reaction that would destroy the Earth. Moreover, he knew that Power's device was sought by alien Z'nrx, nicknamed "Snarks," who intended to use it to conquer inhabitedworlds.

Snarks captured Dr. Power and his wife Margaret, intending to force him to reveal the secret of his device, Whitemane saved the Powers' children, Alex, Julie, Jack, and Katie, from being captured, but he himself was fatally wounded in the process. Dying, Whitemane transferred a different one of his superhuman powers into each of the four Power children, and asked them to use their new abilities to save their world.

Alex received the power to control gravity, and called himself Gee after the common scientific abbreviation for gravitational force ("G"). The four children called themselves the Power Pack. Power Pack thwarted the Snarks, rescued their parents, and destroyed Dr. Power's dangerous matter/anti-matter converter, thereby saving the Earth from destruction. The four children have since continued to have adventures as Power Pack.

After many years, Alex believed it was too dangerous for Power Pack to be operating as super heroes, especially for the younger members Jack and Katie, and so he absorbed the powers of his siblings into himself as Powerhouse when he was contacted by the young hero team New Warriors. As Powerhouse, Alex shared many adventures with the Warriors, but ultimately returned the powers to his siblings. Retaining the gravity-control power, Alex renamed himself Zero-G and has returned to adventuring with his brother and sisters.

As Zero-G, Alex has control over gravity. This control is primarily centered on himself, but can extent to items or people he is in contact with. He usually uses this power to negate gravity's effects, but must rely on his siblings to provide momentum in order to fly. As Destroyer, Alex had Katie's energy absorption power. As Mass Master, Alex had Jack's density power. As Powerhouse, Alex had all of his siblings' powers.

Like his siblings, Alex possesses a costume of unstable molecules. When activated, these costumes are called from an extra-dimensional realm "Elsewhere" to replace their normal clothing.

Height: 5 ft. 1 in.
Weight: 93 lbs.
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blond

Strength Level: Gee has the normal human strength of a boy of his age, height, and build, who engages in a normal amount of exercise for his age (mostly playing). By utilizing his anti-gravity power, Gee can lift (press) far more massive objects than he would otherwise be able to lift.

Known Superhuman Powers: Gee can negate the force of gravity on himself and on other living beings and objects through anti-gravitons. (Gravitons are subatomic particles which carry the force of gravitational attraction. Anti-gravitons are subatomic particles that are the counterparts to gravitons, but have an opposite charge.) In order to reduce the pull of gravity on an object or a living being other than himself, Gee must be in physical contact with object or being. When Gee uses his power small black rectangular marks often appear on his forearms and lower legs (or, if those portions of his body covered by clothing, on the parts of the parts of his clothing covering his forearms and lower leg) and sometimes on part of whatever object he is touching and using his power on. The limits of the amount of mass on which Gee can successfully use his power are not yet known. However, he has succeeded in negating the force of gravity on his father's matter/anti-matter converter, an enormous object weighing many tons, enough to carry it many stories above the Earth's surface.

Gee can control the extent to which he reduces the pull of gravity enough so that he can hover above the Earth's surface at the height he desires, and not simply keep on during upward into outer space. Apparently Gee can also increase the pull of gravity on himself through generating gravitons. In his first clash with the Snarks, Gee thus successfully resisted the pull of a Snarl tractor beam that had a force equivalent to six times Earth's gravity. However, as yet Gee has seldom used this power to increase the pull of gravity, and it is unclear whether he can use this power to increase the force of gravity on living beings and objects he touches.

Presumably as Gee grows older the extent of his powers and his mastery of them will increase. In addition, the members of the Power Pack can heal themselves by sharing their life forces with one another.

Paraphernalia: Gee often wears artificial wings under his arms which enable him to glide on wind currents when he uses his anti-gravity power on himself.

Gee wears a special costume made of unstable molecules created by the Kymellian smartship Friday. The costume can be invisible and intangible, but will materialize on Gee when he wills it to do so.
