James Andreus Theo was a child of the times born June 5th 1910. He was an avid baseball player and football player at least as much as he could being a sickly boy. He loved all things American, his family, and his friends.

Then World War I came home. Both of his Uncles and his father were killed in the Marne counter-offensive in July of 1918. James was only 8 at the time and he was affected greatly. He grew up wishing there was something he could do to bring back his missing family. He went into a shell of his own imagination that remained unbroken until he entered high school. No one knows what happened to him that changed him so; he had become pretty sick over the summer before his freshman year and the day after he recovered from the illness he was changed.

That day he went out and played baseball all day, which had never been possible before due to his deteriorated constitution. His mother never questioned it at least not to him, and from that day forward he was an incredible athlete. In high school he lettered in football, baseball and wrestling. He broke almost every record in each of the sports he participated in. He never seemed to even be working to hard to be better than everyone else. There were a few times in games that things he did seemed super human; he once leapt over a tackle that was far to high for anyone to jump, and another time he plowed through 3 onrushing defensive tackles each one had at least forty pounds on him. Two of the tackles were injured and Andreus walked away without a bruise.

He joined the army immediately after high school and stayed in for 8 years and then started college. He did summer courses and graduated early. In college he continued to play football and learned of his powers, he woke up one morning after dreaming of flying and looked over to turn off the alarm clock but the only thing next to him was the ceiling light. He was floating in the air without any problem. Getting down was quite a trick he was there for a good hour before he figured out how to get down. He began to experiment with his powers and he realized that he was completely in control of gravity. He even found that he could create a small black hole that sucked everything into it.

He realized where his power in football had come from, his ups in basketball, his home run hits that just seemed to float away, and his uncanny ability in wrestling. He could make people float, he crush things with itís own gravity, and fire gravitational balls of force. He stopped playing intra-mural sports to the dismay of all of his coaches and began training himself in his powers. They came along slowly at first and then one day after he had caught been sick they almost increased exponentially. His powers are seemingly only limited by his imagination.

He began fighting crime one day after witnessing a robbery first he used gravity to break a branch and make it fall on one of the fleeing bank robber then making the other robberís shoes so heavy that he couldnít even walk to get away. Andreus knew that with great power came responsibility to use that power in a way to help mankind. Andreus felt that he had not yet finished with his service to his country and decided to put his powers to use. This time not in the military but in a way he thought would be helpful, as a super powered hero.

He could stop crime in the big city and began creating a costume. He had some success as a hero around town but he quickly realized that he needed assistance, a team if he were to succeed on a larger scale. He had become very good at sniffing out crime and finding information in the city by learning what he could from friends he made at the police force. He named himself the Gravity Man after the point in the middle of a black hole in which time and space are actually bent and all the rules of time and space donít mean anything. He has noted the fact that whenever he gets sick his powers and his body has a habit of evolving drastically.


Gravity Man loves America and everything she stands for. He sees the growing tide of war and wonders how super humans will fit in it. He is a true Gemini, jovial and good spirited one minute then thoughtful and brooding the next. He is not totally in control of his powers and he knows it so he tries to make sure he practices but usually gets dragged away by one of his many friends. He is an all American boy, he played sports likes to go camping and is fascinated by new ideas. Most of all he wants to be the hero he knows is needed by the world. He just hopes he is up to the task.


"Everything obeys the law of gravity! Care for a demonstration?"


Gravity Man has total control over gravity. He can fly and emits a force field of gravitational energy that can stop almost anything, however it works slightly better on physical attacks than energy attacks. He can make a persons gravity multiply exponentially to the point that they are crushed or cannot walk or reverse it and send them flying high into the air only to crash back into the ground. He can have gravity hold someone to the ground for long periods of time. He can create mini black holes that suck in attacks. He can travel at great speeds by using the gravitational tides of the earth to his advantage; placing himself into a cocoon of gravity as the earth rotates around him. He shoots balls of gravitational energy that can do large amounts of damage. He can even create a large field of gravity that only pulls in the light and sound without causing anyone damage. His powers are not stable however and can cause him pain if he doesnít control them correctly.


Gravity Man is approximately 6 feet and 205 lbs. He has black hair and his blue eyes have turned completely black. His eyes resemble two black holes or orbs of onyx. They glow with a blue white energy when he uses his powers. He wears whatever clothes are appropriate for the occasion and in battle he wears a black body suit with a flowing white cape and a loose cloth mask that covers his face and neck.
