Origins: The source for I-Force's power has always been this - nearly every iota of magical and sorcerous power that was on Earth at the
conclusion of the last magical cycle, when Merlin, Morgana, dragons, trolls, fairies, ogres, krakens, and a massive sorcerous planetary power
grid were at their most intense and permeating the entire planet. Merlin, disenchanted with the sorcerous evil in the world, learned how to
siphon all of that magical energy into a receptacle called the Eye of Force (pissing off a lot of people) where he intended to be the lone,
responsible steward of it all. But he had to make arrangements before the conclusion of the current sorcerous cycle. This explains why
sorcery vanished after the medieval ages. His time travel jump into the next magical cycle (our time) was sabotaged by his vengeful enemies
and Merlin became separated from the Eye (stuck dormant within the form of an infant girl in the modern day). Those incomprehensible
energies ended up fusing with the form of noble fire fighter Paul Michaelson in the modern day giving birth to the powerhouse force for good
the world would come to know as I-Force.
I-Force's searing power is manifested through worldly physics, like strength and flight and energy projection, but it's all fueled by the the most
incomprehensible concentration of volatile, self-replenishing sorcerous energy that ever existed on Earth. This gives him not only an
uncanny physical protection from harm and a wide away of powerful applications, but also unprecedented resistance to even magical and
other-dimensional attacks. As I-Force learns more about his magical origins (including a meeting with Merlin, who grows up to become the
female sorceress Magus-1), he unlocks new abilities that he can incorporate into his power base, like fighters learning new martial arts
I-Force is highly intelligent, yet raised in Brooklyn as a scrapper, so he's ready to go toe-to-toe with anyone without backing down, like Ben
Grimm, like Muhammad Ali, like Rocky Balboa. But can he move a moon, or survive the core of a star, or raise a continent? Those are magical
stories I have yet to tell.
As a New York fire fighter out of Brooklyn, Paul's squad responded to a fire at the Brooklyn Museum where he became exposed to vast
amounts of raw sorcerous energy that was stored for hundreds of years within the Eye of Force, a mysterious artifact tracing back to medieval
times. The Eye of Force attached itself to Paul's chest and unleashed energies changed Paul's genetic code enabling him to absorb and store
any form of energy and then re-deploy it in a number of incredibly powerful ways. After deep introspection, Paul decided to renounce official
affiliations with any one country and dedicated all his time to become an independent global force for humanity. Early in Paul's career, a
madman gravimetrically anchored a planet-destroying device that prevented all human attempts to defeat it met with failure, making the
doomsday device an Earth-shattering "immovable object." Paul ultimately was able to muscle the immovable object and transport it safely into
outer space where it exploded harmlessly. The mainstream media went nuts, played on his good looks and hyped the angle that Paul was the
"Irresistable Force" it took to defeat the deadly "Immovable Object" and save the world. Paul's new monicker was soon shortened to just -
Force, a name that stuck for good. His widely publicized feats quickly earned him planetary adulation over the years whether he was using his
newfound power to minimize natural disasters, fight menacing threats or maximize global relief.
I-Force regards himself as a protector for humanity and an upholder for legal justice, but his unique powers made him well-suited to assist
with global security as well. An offer was made and Paul accepted a position as a Unified Nations Honorary Global Security Advisor Pro-Tem.
When the global "Neogen Flux" event began unfolding, Paul became inolved in UN efforts to investigate the phenomenon and to perhaps
learn more about humans undergoing changes not unlike his own. But in the orientation session, asteroids inexplicably broke through the
atmosphere. Once detected, I-Force rocketed to intercept the deadly rain, and six other gifted humans from six different nations stepped up
to assist. Averting widescale disaster, I-Force then proposed that the seven of them form a permanent partnership to protect the Earth. A UN-
sponsored corps of Alliance Nations Guarding Earth Life, or ANGEL Corps, was born.
Powers: I-Force uses the Eye of Force on his chest to absorb and store any form of energy (kinetic, potential, thermal, gravitational, sound,
light, elastic, and electromagnetic) and can re-deploy the energy in a wide array of applications:
- I-Shields. Impervious. I-Force's I-Shields are impervious to all known physical forms and energy and are always "on", imbedded in his very
skin even if he sleeps. Coupled with his locationing powers, I-Force can psionically deploy, control, shape and extend his shielding into
multiple anti-gravity constructs such as tubes, walls, free floating objects, etc.with but a thought. Using his I-Locationing powers, I-Force can
project shielding positioned to ricochet his eye beams in any direction not unlike Darkseid's turning Omega beams. Like Captain America, I-
Force has become a master of deflecting and ricocheting angles. Light blue glow.
- I-Locationing. Impeller. By virtue of a stream of pulsed waves, enables a spatial imaging system that allows I-Force to see through objects
like Daredevil's radar sense. This pulse wave is “on” all the time and gives I-Force a “threat sense” that alerts him to incoming attacks,
triggering his I-Shields to strengthen automatically. Usually no visible manifestation.
- I-Vision. Intergalactic. Allows
I-Force to see telescopically with a resolution of .098 arc seconds and able to detect 30th magnitude celestial objects. This degree of
resolution would enable I-Force to read the year off of a quarter a mile and a half away. Dark red beam.
- I-Sensors. Imaging. Allows I-Force to detect a broad spectrum of energies; thermal, electromagnetic, magnetic, nuclear, chemical, radiation,
ultraviolet, etc. Solid red beam.
- I-Strength. Inestimable. Extremely powerful Class 7 Megahuman level strength. In a relaxed state, I-Force can lift 100 tons. In a power-
I-Force has lifted and flown with the Glory of the Seas, the largest cruise ship in the world weighing in over 220,000 tons with room to spare.
As his strength increases,
I-Force's physique augments accordingly. His upper limits are not yet known. This energy also enhances I-Force's speed, reaction and
response times. His ground speed has been clocked at over 300 miles per hour. White glow.
- I-Flight. Impulse. In Earth's atmosphere, can employ psionic propulsion to achieve hypersonic Mach 10 at 2 miles per second or about 7500
mph. In space, free of dragging elements, it is theorized that I-Force may be able to approach light speeds. White contrail.
- I-Beam. Impact. Able to be beamed out as concussive beams able to strike with the force of 3 gigawatts, more than enough to rupture steel
plating and solid rock. Solid white beam.
I-Beam. Incendiary. Searing plasma heat beam. White beam, wide or narrow, with a red core.
I-Beam. Ice. Sub-zero temperature field. White beam, wide or narrow, with a blue core.
I-Force has sophisticated and powerful energy manipulation powers, able to split his energies into several powers at once. However, if I-
Force is using 100% of his energies for a feat of strength, he would having nothing left to fuel any other powers.
I-Force's replenishing absorption reaches an energy set point and
he then operates from that level.
I-Force can willfully continue to absorb far beyond his working capacity but those upper limits have not been sufficiently tested because of
the discomfort involved. Moreover, he would ultimately require a massive release that some experts project could potentially match the
energy released in a massive solar flare or 6×1025 joules of energy (about a sixth of the total energy output of the Sun each second). As such,
this is an extremely dangerous ability with which to experiment.
Strength Level Unassisted:
Class 1-A Baseline Human Range.
Can press 460 Lbs.
Strength Level Power-Assisted:
Class 7. Megahuman Range.
Can press 250,000 Tons.
Arsenal: The Eye of Force is a bright red convex elliptical artifact that is fused to I-Force's chest and it possesses incalculable sorcerous
properties. Though only wafer thin, it is impenetrable and can absorb and re-direct energies as willed by its rightful user.
The Eye of Force has a rarely used battle mode that transforms I-Force into a giant armor clad warrior with an enchanted shield and a sword.
The shield is capable of changing its shape and can be used for throwing. Though it will return on its own, I-Force can intercept the path by
saying “Eye Return” and it will instantly reappear on his forearm. The sword is the sister sword to Excalibur dubbed Icalibur. Though
extremely powerful, using this mode leaves I-Force's physical body highly exhausted and his fueling energies severely depleted requiring
hours to recharge.
Fighting Prowess: Paul received his first black belt in kung-fu when he was sixteen years old. When he enlisted in the marines, he earned a
black belt in Tae Kwon Do in Korea and proved a boxing juggernaut on the US Marines Boxing Team. Upon returning to the States, Paul
studied Jun Fan Jeet Kune under the original JKD Branch and developed modifications to the system of his own design. Paul has Marine
military knowledge of combat tactics, weapons, marksmanship, ordnances and demolitions.
