A great grandnephew of General Chiang Kai Shek, Chang Jing Wei wanted to be a scholar. However, because of his heritage, the Party man of his village ensured that he had the lowest of professions - a garbage hauler. To prove himself, he worked hard finishing his route quickly and then unloading the cart before lunch time. He volunteered his free time to the Party man who assigned him to fix and expand Party man's house. At nights, he spent his time reading - first Mao, then Marx and Engels.

His work ethic did not go unnoticed. To be shown as an example of how workers should be productive, the Party man's superior took him to the nearby town where he continued to to more of the same work including working on the Party boss's house. In effect his work just increased and he worked in a fancier place doing the same thing. But, at last, by chance, a purist in the Party found him, and after an enlightened debate on Communist theory, took Jing Wei under his wing.

The young man moved to Beijing, and noticed that he felt even stronger than before. While studying at a school for promising Communists, he accidentally tore down a wall when he walked into it while reading a book. With testing, he was found to be and uber. The top tier of the Party brought him in for questioning and learned how naive and dedicated Jing Wei was to Communism. He would serve as the perfect control for the ambition of the members of the Gang of Five.

Written by Neil M.


Out of the five superhumans of the Gang of Five, only Chang Jing Wei actually believes in a pure form of communism. Still, he feels that he must work from within the system and from there, just maybe the self-appointed oligarchy that claims to represent the people of China will change into a true communism. He also realizes, that perhaps the international communism envisioned by Trotsky did not need China, but for now it did serve as a source of strength.


"The people will be heard. I am their embodied voice."


People Power is a mutant that can take strength from all of the people in the area. The more populous the neighborhood, the stronger he is. Furthermore, he can see nearly everything going on around him through the eyes and ears of the nearby population.


People Power wears a tan coat over a loose-fitting red suit with yellow trim and a large black calligraphy Chinese character 'People' in the middle of his chest. When not on missions, he will wear a business suit.
