Dr. Howell was, in his previous life, a renowned scientist at the Institute for the Development of Energy Alternatives (IDEA), where he was heading a team attempting to harness, manipulate, and use the very bioelectromagnetic energy within living things. Dr. Howell’s intent was to collect this relatively low-level energy, amplify it, and use it to power machinery.

But one day, the actions of an industrial saboteur caused a massive power surge in Dr. Howell’s equipment, and he was bombarded by a barrage of accelerated particles that transformed him into a living cloud of bioelectromagnetic energy. In his newly acquired state, Dr. Howell has a vast control over electricity and magnetism, but his brain has also been altered. He perceives reality in a different manner than normal humans, a manner he believes to be far superior and greatly advanced. Though he is primarily on the side of good, occasionally his perspective leads him to use his powers in destructive or confusing ways. His justification for these strange outbursts is an awareness of a universal stream of events that sometimes require his intervention to manifest into what he calls “the story of time,” which will end in some immense event that he must ensure will happen through his actions.

Usually, Grady is able to maintain his human form through light concentration, but when he is in a particularly stressful situation, that concentration can be broken enough that he will start to come undone. Therefore, he designed and built a device that attracts the particular energy of which he is composed and helps keep him together.
