Character:
Origins:  Julie grew up in Quezon City in the Philippines with her two sisters but the family migrated to California when she was 8 years old.
Earning a Master of Science in nursing, Julie took a Registered Nurse position in a trauma unit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Santa
Monica. Her work was highly regarded and she demonstrated a genuine compassion for her patients' conditions. Following the global event
later referred to as
"The Neogen Flux," Julie became aware of an increasing number of subtle changes in the way her body felt. While long
hospital shifts used to leave her feeling tired and fatigued, she now seemed to almost never be at a loss for energy. Returning home one day,
Julie was horrified to witness a stray cat that she had been feeding get hit by a passing car. She ran to the poor creature who lay injured,
unconscious and nearly dead.  She instinctively clutched the creature to her chest, loving it with all her heart and crying uncontrollably. She
felt a warm glow come over her as her body seemed to hum with energy and was floored when the kitty started purring and licking her face
seemingly unharmed. The cat squirmed free from her arms and scampered away.  Had she somehow healed the cat? She tried to recreate the
incident with some of her suffering patients with no results. One of her most  beloved patients, however, was a dear old woman on her death
bed, and Julie found herself holding the woman's hand, praying for her, when the warm glow surfaced again. The cancer and Altzheimer's
disease that had ravaged the woman's body completely disappeared, damaged tissue became renewed and the woman regained full lucidity.
The same day, a flat-lining patient was at risk when de-fibrillator paddles failed. Julie screamed in frustration when the paddles activated with a
charge. The patient recovered but  when  the equipment was examined, it was found to have a damaged power supply that could not have
powered the paddles. Piecing together her new abilities, she kept them quiet and began covertly helping heal patients wherever she could.  
She became overconfident though and began getting into conflicts at the hospital by contradicting doctors' prognoses that she would later
prove faulty when she would secretly heal the patients' ills.  Several doctors resented what they perceived as her undermining their practice,
and Julie was suspended. Outraged at her situation, Julie learned of the UN's efforts to examine subjects seemingly affected by
"The Neogen
Flux."
Taking a leave of absence, she made her way to Manhattan to participate.  
Powers:  Julie’s entire body absorbs, stores and replenishes any form of energy (kinetic, potential, thermal, gravitational, sound, light, elastic,
and electromagnetic). She can then use that energy to project a unique ion-plasmic bioelectric energy that can shock, disrupt, heat or
augment power. As an instantly replenishing power battery, Charger can direct super concussive blasts or intense high-voltage lightning-like
streams. In its raw form, Julie's energies mimic blasts of lightning, but by reversing that energy’s polarity, she can achieve a disruptor mode
achieving a range of more destructive effects from dishing out severe pain to disruptive concussion blasts and powerful explosions. Her
energies also give her technopathic abilities that allow her to know everything about any device or computer system she can link with. Julie
can enhance and improve the power of various weapons that she energizes to supercharged levels. Directed inwardly, Charger can boost her
own strength to Hyperhuman levels (see below). Her self-healing abilities are Class H16, the fastest known, managing 6 months of normal
human healing time in anywhere from 15 seconds to 6 minutes, tops. As one might expect, she has lightning-like reflexes. She also discovered
that she can “surf” a stream of charged particles to emulate flying.  Julie's energy stores cannot be spent beyond the replenishing reserve
required for life support which might make her immortal. Though she does so autonomically, Julie does not need to breathe and can survive in
the vacuum of space.   
Strength Level Unassisted:
Class 1-A Baseline Human Range.
Level 3.
Can press 210 Lbs.
Strength Level Power-Assisted:
Class 2-B. Extrahuman Range.
Level 10.
Can press 4 Tons.
Arsenal:  Julie was originally given polished silver gauntlets to help her control her energies. Having refined her energy-wielding abilities with
a laser-like precision, she no longer needs them, but thinks they look hot and so continues to wear them.
Fighting Prowess:  Julie is only now training to acquire martial arts skills but has such lightning fast reflexes that she can evade and counter
most everything that is thrown at her. Her other advantage is that she never tires and has the fastest healing factor known.
Gear:
Standard Nanotech Armored Protection Gear (SNAP-Gear), lightweight uniforming system equipped with onboard computer array, variable feed
power sources, life-support, networking and armored protection. A voice-activated onboard computer ties into tactical local and wide-area
networks using a “heads-up” holographic transparent 17-inch display panel while it monitors its wearer’s physiology. A shield mode provides
operatives head-to-toe protection.   
Adairian Adaptive memory molecules enable SNAP-GEAR uniforms to adapt to a host’s application of wide arrays of energies. SNAP-Gear is able
to transform into a small inventory of various non-combat outfits pre-loaded by its user.  
ANGEL Com (Communications Device), a neural transceiver implant that responds to basic cybernetic commands. The device utilizes ultra-
sophisticated cerebellinguistic algorithm codes to translate human languages. Once set, the device automatically translates and feeds
languages or dialects in one’s native tongue directly into the ear with an average translatability percentage ratio of 94.6% for all known
language patterns.
