Character Details

Andre Jefferson and his older brother Cedric grew up in Baltimore, but moved to NYC to live with relatives after their parents died in an accident. Andre was 8 years old and Cedric was 10.

While Cedric was serious, intelligent and politically savvy, Andre was an enthusiastic follower of urban culture and seemed headed for a life of trouble. By high school he had developed into an amazing athlete. Even though he barely graduated he was given a football scholarship to UCLA after being courted by schools all over the country.

Away from home for the first time, Andre fell in with Los Angeles criminals involved in sports gambling. He was lucky not to be caught in illegal activities, but instead his sports scholarship was revoked when it was revealed that his incredible athleticism was actually due to his mutant powers.

Andre couldn't afford to stay in school, and tried to become a pro athlete now that he was 18, but was denied again because of his powers. He ended up crashing with his brother Cedric, who had moved to Chicago after graduating from community college 2 years earlier.

Cedric had become a fledgling social justice leader, and over the next year opened Andre's eyes to the many absurdities in the urban lifestyles he had previously admired.

Andre wasn't cut out for social work, but his brother had inspired him to use his mutant powers for the good of society, particularly urban society. He began revisiting many of the cities he had seen as a college football recruit (this time on foot). He spent days or weeks in each trying to fight crime.

Lately he has grown tired of his nomad lifestyle and returned to New York, intending to make it his base of operations.
