Gerry Richardson, the sole survivor of the planet Krypton. His father, Jor-El, discovered that a nuclear chain reaction was building inside Krypton that would soon shatter the entire world. Jor-El therefore had his unborn removed from the Kryptonian Gestation Chambers and affixed the life matrix containing Gerry to an experimental vessel for travel through hyperspace. Jor-El launched the starcraft toward Earth just before Krypton exploded.
Gerry was, in effect, born on Earth when the starcraft landed there. Ron and Kathryn Richardson found the infant inside the vessel and brought him to their farm in London, Ontario. Since he appeared entirely human, the Richardsons assumed that the baby was a victim of a cruel experiment. At this time the baby had no super powers. The Richardsons named the infant Gerry and raised him as their own son.
As Gerry grew older his Kryptonian body began developing superhuman abilities. When Gerry was eighteen, Ron took him to the field where his starcraft still lay hidden and explained how he and Kathryn had found him. Gerry resolved to use his powers from then on only for the good of mankind. Soon after, Gerry left London to study at Canadore College.
Gerry initially used his powers covertly to help people and prevent or thwart disasters. Ultimately, he was forced to use his powers in public to prevent the crash of a NASA space-plane. Thereafter he and his foster parents devised a new costumed secret identity he would adopt when using his abilities in public.
Shortly afterward, Gerry obtained a job as a producer for CKNX AM920. He currently enjoys a midday show with CKNX.
