Cole MacGrath was once a simple bike courier who gained powers after the explosion of the Ray Sphere, which destroyed an entire city district, leaving him alive and blessed with the powers of electrokinesis and electromagnetism. Using these powers, he can either become a hero and protect the city, or a villain to destroy it all.
