Dr. Daniel Force, PhD, was physicist working for FALCON’s Science and Technology Directorate (White Team). As a result of a “lab accident”, he found himself transported to an unknown realm of super science, either on another planet or Earth’s future. He remains hazy on the details due to injuries he suffered during FALCON’s rescue.
Though he was gone only a few months, he aged about ten years. During this time he acquired substantial martial arts skills & a harness that endowed him with the ability to control basic forms of energy—potential, kinetic, electrical and heat.
Irene, is an adoring neice, eager to assist “Uncle Dan” and follow his example as an agent of FALCON. In the short-term, her immediate ambition is to take on the role of her uncle’s “minder”, which is necessitated by FALCON’s concern over a possible brain- injury suffered during his rescue.
POWERS, ABILITIES & PARAPHENALIA
The Energist’s harness gave him a mastery of potential, kinetic, electrical & heat energies. By juggling energy from one place to another he can perform a number of feats limited solely by his imagination. Doing so requires some sort of physical connection. After a few months of experience, though, he no longer needs the harness, which he wears now only as a form of misdirection. The bullet-proof great coat that Dr. Force wears is a recent acquisition from the Household at the behest of Irene.
