Josh is not the movie star handsome of Slater Monroe, or the hot surfer charm of Nat Ryan but he is impishly attractive, if a little eccentric in dress. Clashing colors, brilliant tones, or stark mono-chromatic outfits are the norm. If you are on the beach and need to find him, he'll be the one that glows like neon.
Keely stood beside the man that she loved with all her heart. He was a good man, a rich man and he had swept her off her feet in a whirlwind of gifts and travel. He had shown her Tahiti and the Temple of Ankor Wat. Piece by piece she was covered in jewels and fine clothes and as was inevitable he asked her to marry him and she agreed. Keely never listened to the niggling rumors of college hijinx that went beyond an innocent prank. It didnít take long for her to discover the truth but by then Josh had been born and she was stuck.

The boy covered his head with the blankets in an effort to shut out the shouts of anger but even with his small fists pressed against his ears, he could still hear it. When the sounds of slaps followed by the heavy thud of a falling body and the sobs of his mother came through he trembled in fear, his face streaked with tears for his mother.

Keely lay in the hospital bed clutching her tiny daughter to her breast. She did not feel the horrors of her husbandís assault that resulted in this child; all she saw was a tiny life to be protected. At her bedside, her son, Josh, just five years old, clung to his motherís hand.
She whispered ďJosh, you must always protect her.Ē
The boyís face grew hard in a way no childís should ever and he nodded.

They took a small house overlooking the ocean. It was far less than what they were used to but all that mattered was that they were out. Josh held his tiny sisterís hand wherever they went and she became the most important thing in his life. The words of his mother he had taken to heart and it was only during school hours that he wasnít hovering over her.

Life for the next few years was hard, their mother working two jobs, Josh taking care of Paige from dawn until he tucked her in each night. Once heíd seen to her, he was left a few free moments for himself and though he rarely went far, he began to enjoy evening walks through the neighborhood.

Josh had just turned fifteen and his sister was ten when he returned from his evening walk to find the limo in front of the house. He broke into a run and hit the front door hard when he found the door locked. Peering in through the front windows he saw nothing but fear swelled in him and he raced around the back of the house. Through the back door, he saw his mother on the floor, her face bloody, her eyes closed. When he saw the shape of a man go into his sisterís room, something inside him broke.
The man never had a chance to look up as he pulled at the girlís clothes. The blast of energy so powerful that it blew his body in half also ignited the wall. The girl was unconscious as the boy lifted her in his arms and carried her out of the back door and laid her in the grass. The fire spread quickly, the cheap material used to build the house going up like a lanternís wick.
Josh ripped off his shirt and covered his sisterís body. He took her hand and held it searching her battered face for some sign of life. Then he saw her chest rise then fall and he laid his head on her breast and sobbed in relief. It was only then he turned his attention to his mother and the house.

The official report stated the fire was caused by an electrical short in the wall of the childrenís bedroom. The rapidity of the fireís spread was rightly attributed to the cheap construction material and the flammability of bedding of the bed against that wall. The press identified the single casualty as Preston John Temple, a well known Los Angeles area TV evangelist, who had been visiting his estranged children in an effort to reconcile with them. Sources claimed so little remained of the body that it was only but dental records and a single gold filling that the identification was made. Temple had not left a will and it was assumed his entire estate would go to his wife and children.
Josh commands electricity to an amazing degree. He can manipulate it into a full on lightning bolt with high odds of a death, or he can zap a target with just enough current to paralyze the muscles. On the less violent side he can drain the power from any electical device or project an EMP that will fry anything electronic within 10 meters. He is able to take just about any electrical blast and absorb it then later to use the energy to power his own attacks. He can tune down his output and make it compatable with normal electrical devices acting as a backup generator.
Like others, Josh joined the Minuteman Project via blackmail. He had killed his father to stop him from raping his ten year old sister, Paige. Of course Miller knew this, but Miller also knew there wasn't much use in prosecuting a fifteen year old meta for protecting his sister. It would do little but stir up fear of Metas and sympathy for the girl and her meta brother. This event with his father has made Josh more than a little intolerant of pedophiles and rapests to the point that someone like Nat would have to take him down to prevent any more deaths. The mental damage done by killing his own father has left Josh more than a little erratic. Luckily the team has been able to cope and even distract Josh out of one of this moods.
