History

Robert "Bobby" Gunn was a cagefighter, a wrestler, and a boxer. There was no challenge he wasn't willing to solve with his fists. Then the cancer came, and he couldn't fight that with his fists. And then he couldn't fight at all.

Once he finally entered remission, he took a job as a security guard with Crey Industries, driving an armored truck around.

One day, a freak storm appeared out of nowhere, and the truck was struck by lightning. Somehow, it exploded. Unfortunately, the cargo he was carrying was radioactive.

In the aftermath, they found Bobby's body. He was barely clinging to life; a lesser man probably would have been dead on the scene. He'd lost an arm, most of his face, and his lungs were so destroyed that he couldn't process the oxygen in the air.

Crey Industries funneled a lot of money into saving Bobby, even though he looked like a lost cause.

Defiant

Despite Crey's valiant efforts, Bobby died on the table.

Liberty

Despite Crey's valiant efforts, Bobby died on the table.

Pinnacle

Despite Crey's valiant efforts, Bobby died on the table.

Virtue

Crey had access to the genius of hotshot medical resident Allister Kirsch, who managed to come up with a method of salvaging Bobby. He gave him an artificial arm, reconstructed his eyesight, and gave him a rebreather to allow him to process oxygen.

There are a few things that they've learned:

  1. The cancer has come back. The new tumor seems to have a strange mutation that allows him to create localized pseudoclimatic effects. This is likely what caused the freak storm that killed him.
  2. Somehow, Bobby's body has become a capacitor for dangerous radiation. It's also changed his metabolism. He needs regular exposure to extreme radiation to survive. He's figured out how to release the energies he carries.
  3. He probably doesn't have long to live, now that the cancer is back. However, his new metabolism has made any estimates of his lifespan suspect.

Bobby now feels strong again, and has decided to take his experience into the heroing world, against the advice of his doctors. He's chosen the moniker Fission Storm to operate under as a hero.

One of his first acts as a hero was to bring in Joule Thief (who now is the hero Reformed Joule Thief). Even though she was in a weakened state, this gained him a lot of fame among the heroes, and notoriety amongst the villain set.

Given his special needs, they've allowed Bobby to live in Terra Volta, where he can "feed" by absorbing energy from the nuclear plant. In exchange, he patrols, trying to keep the tide of villains in Terra Volta from turning into a torrent.
