Jerry is, quite simply, a mutant. Up until puberty, he was a pretty normal kid with a normal upbringing. Well, maybe better than normal for the privileged and pampered set - his dad is a financier who made his money early on and now is a freelance consultant, his mom simply enjoys landscaping and working with her garden, so both his parents were around and there for him and his brother whenever they were needed. No sobby stories about being raised by the servants for them. They weren't overly spoiled or coddled, and Roger Fein made certain neither boy thought that money or status would help him out of trouble. Some people are just made to get into trouble, and Jerry is one of those people. His kid brother will probably be an accountant or insurance adjuster, while Jerry will either wind up famous or be the focus of a small private funeral before he's 21.

What happened to Jerry? Puberty happened. The same hormones that turn quiet kind children into aliens from Dimension X also activated Jerry's metagene. So now, teenage angst and rebellion had super powers to back them up. That's a recipe for trouble even in families where powers run in the bloodline, but nothing prepared the Feins for Jerry's breakout. Everyone else was so… normal. Anyway, once he speared the principal's car on top of the Cold Harbor High School founder's statue, it was time to do something. He'd been somewhat discrete up until now, but this…? Every attempt to contain him resulted in more aggressive measures until finally there was the Stanley Mall Incident. Because it was a Sunday morning, there was no loss of life or even serious injury, but most of the mall itself was destroyed. Jerry was found out and brought in by Silver Streak, NYC's best-known speedster, and there was a tense week where it looked like he'd be sent to prison. Silver Streak interveened by recommending him to the Steranko Institute as a way for Jerry to learn some useful skills, mix with powered peers, and still get a decent education. Technically, he's on parole until he's 18 years old, and cannot leave the school grounds without written permission or his parent's escort.


Jerry is a bit of an ass. OK, sometimes he can be quite an ass. He's a spontaneously violent showoff that has a real problem with authority figures and loves nothing more than to bring some pompous figure down a few pegs, or just to annoy the powerful for no other reason than he can when others can't. This results in some nice ironic justice from time to time, but it's usually for Jerry's amusement more than any real do-gooding. That just happens to be a happy coincidence. He won't stand by when there's real danger to a person, and he'll certainly react to disasters, but for him having powers is the equivalent to being on Summer Vacation for the rest of his life.

That said, Jerry is a basically good person but like a lot of teenaged boys he's worried about being thought soft if he shows a gentler side to himself. One thing he does hate, though, are bullies. He'll stand up for a younger, smaller kid in a heartbeat even if it means taking a beating himself from upperclassmen.
