A fateful accident gave Brad Farson the power he wields today. He was a construction worker in Ford City. One month, his crew was demolishing an abandoned laboratory building. As Brad was smashing dry wall with a sledge hammer, he suddenly noticed something shiny amid the rubble. He sifted through the debris and found a strange looking suit lying there, at one point apparently hidden. He secretly stuffed it into his coveralls and brought it home. That night, he tried it on, and found that it automatically sized itself to be a perfect fit on his body. But the biggest surprise came when he walked around. Sparks of electricity went off all over the suit, and then were absorbed into the built-in belt. Brad soon found that the belt could store massive amounts of static power, and that when he wore the suit, he could fire it off in blasts of energy. He now fights crime at night as the hero Friction, unbeknownst to his wife and infant son. He has since retired from crime fighting and is now mentor to Friction II, his niece. Brad’s retirement is the product of unfortunate battle with the villainous terrorist group known as the Fourth Reich, a paralytic injury that his niece avenged.
