Background

A small time crook from Chicago, Josh Tippet got on the wrong side of a Boss and ended up as a guinea pig for a less-than-scrupulous chemist who injected him with a highly dangerous formula. Josh was one of twenty subjects, and the only one to survive, although his body had changed into a malleable liquid form. He escaped the lab and spent the next few months building up a low-level supervillain career while also trying to maintain his physical shape.

He was eventually apprehended by Sanction and sent to prison where he met Brainwave. The two struck up a friendship and when Brainwave decided to break out of prison, he took Josh along with him. In the company of Brainwave, Josh fully realised his powers and became a feared member of Maximum Force.

Personality
Josh is basically a street thug who has found himself in powerful company. On his own he would revert to small time crimes, but with Brainwave calling the shots he is up for any escapade. Josh is also a very vindictive man and likes to exert power over others, especially policemen.

Powers

Undertow is able to manipulate liquid as well as being composed of a malleable semi-liquid substance since being injected with the H2Grow serum.

Appearance

Undertow is a regular looking man and has a thick Chicago accent which reveals his hard upbringing. In costume he wears a blue and green armour. No matter what he is wearing, Undertow always exudes water from his pores, making small puddles whenever he stops for any length of time.
