Background

When asked about his background before joining the large entertainment company in 1955 to head the security of its fledgling Anaheim theme park, Josiah Gold simply reveals that he came from a “three-letter organization.” Looking at the serious set of his jaw and his flinty, world-weary eyes, people realize immediately that he’s not exactly talking about AAA. In fact, the joke about the well-preserved Gold is that he came to the company from B.C.E.—“before the common era.”

In truth, Gold is much older than he appears. A former decorated Chicago police officer, he joined the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in late 1942, shortly after the group’s inception, working under William J. “Wild Bill” Donavan and helping to guide Allied landings as an officer assigned to Operation TORCH. When OSS was dissolved in 1945, Gold went not into the CIA, as many OSS veterans did, but into the FBI instead. It was early in his time with the FBI that he encountered—and arrested—an atomic-powered bank robber named Frank Toblin, who called himself Dynamo. Dynamo could fire bolts of radiation from his hands, but he had a glass jaw, and Gold easily subdued him, but not before taking a blast of radiation himself. Gold hasn’t aged a day since.

Gold met the company’s founder in 1954 through a mutual acquaintance. Inspired by the man’s enthusiasm and vision, and increasingly frustrated with the FBI’s leadership under J. Edgar Hoover, Gold applied for the job of chief of security at the Anaheim theme park. The position has grown over the years, and Gold is now in charge of all security operations for the entire corporation. Although the superhero team is not technically under Gold’s control, he has a great deal of influence over its missions, and personally screened the backgrounds of all applicants to the team.

Personality
Gold is a no-nonsense man who exudes an "old-style cop" image. Once people get past his tough exterior, they learn that he is kind and thoughtful, truly inspired by the company founder’s vision of entertainment and what it could do for the world. Incredibly loyal to the company, he has devoted himself to it at the expense of other personal relationships. While he feels protective of company employees and guests, particularly children, he has an old cop’s intolerance for criminals.
Quote
Quote: "This company’s founder and those who have followed him have shaped the vision. My job is to protect it."
Quote About Him: "I thought you guys were mice, not security pros."—a captured criminal.
Powers

Gold's only uberhuman ability is an increased constitution resulting from his radiation exposure in the late 1940s. As a result of that exposure, Gold doesn’t age and never seems to get sick, either. Other than that, he is a very fit man with some combat training, keen perception, and a host of skills relating to his background as a law enforcement officer and government agent.

Appearance

Josiah Gold looks like he stepped out of the 1950s. He has short-cropped black hair in an old-fashioned style, wears heavy, horn-rimmed glasses, and dresses in a series of gray suits that some people affectionately joke came from the company’s costuming department. A thin, muscular man with a serious face, he appears very much like Jack Webb from Dragnet, if Webb had worn glasses.
