Ed's Notes: So... Drugs are... good, then?  What a bizarre character. Easily top 5 material for any "weirdest comic book characters ever" list.  Having no permanent physical form, his "free spirit" merely drifts from one inanimate object to another.  He cannot be killed, as if  his Body reaches zero, he simply becomes immobile until he can absorb some energy, activating his Invulnerably and Regeneration powers. (After 9 AP's of time in the presence of just sunlight, or immediately if struck with a lightning bolt or energy blast.)  Technically, he shouldn't even HAVE a Str or Body attribute rating, since these will always depend on the Body of whatever he is possessing. (Which begs the question... Why would you possess anything OTHER than the Statue of Liberty, or some other such BFT?!)  Also, since inanimate objects have no Int/Mind, his Personality Transfer is always an automatic action.  Just for clarity: He can only possess objects he's animated, but he can Animate other objects, which he has not possessed.

This is a weird one, to be sure. And not a very oft used or popular character either. But... Dang, this could make for some very interesting scenarios!

First Appearance: Brother Power the Geek #1 (October, 1968)
