Origin of Powers

Figured it might be good to work the Canon Fodder entry about Posi into the article, but I'm not sure how to fit it in [1]

Question: Did Positron use his power armor to fight crime before or after developing the ability to generate anti-matter?
Answer: A lab accident early in his career granted Dr. Raymond Keyes the ability to generate small, insignificant amounts of anti-matter material. So small that if it wasn’t for his scientific mind he probably would have lived the rest of his life without realizing he had the ability. Fortunately for us, Dr. Keyes traced a pattern of “weirdness” occurring around him to this innocuous ability. He and his colleague Dr. Rudolph Bein built the original Positron suit as a way to harness the anti-matter he naturally generated, and could then use that harnessed energy to project his anti-matter beams and power his rocket boots for flight.
During one of the last battles of the first Rikti War, Positron was severely injured, and lost any sort of control he had over his anti-matter generation ability. Since the suit was specifically designed to harness and store anti-matter, he locked himself inside of it for the safety of those around him. Events surrounding the return of Hero-1 to Primal Earth saw him “cured” of this condition, and he can now enjoy a life outside the armor.

Specifically the bit about how there was a lab accident that causes the generation of the Antimatter, but how the suit is required to do anything useful with it. SaintNicster 14:17, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

I pulled his description from the Freedom Phalanx page, since it was missing on this page. It appears to be an older version since it doesn't mention his cure, and I have no idea what its original source is. It's possible that only his appearance changed, but his description when appearing as an enemy did not. Felderburg 17:06, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
