The Power Pack is a superhero team of children in the Marvel Universe.

Origin[edit | edit source]

When the Power siblings (Alex, Julie, Jack and Katie) found their parents were kidnapped by aliens, a good alien named Whitey gave the children his powers so they could save the day. After doing so, they decided to continue using their powers as the superhero team Power Pack.

History[edit | edit source]

Power Play[edit | edit source]

Alex, Julie, Jack, and Katie Power were four normal kids whose father, James Power, had discovered a revolutionary new power source that was efficient and ecologically safe. However, James was unaware that the power source had the potential to destroy the planet. The alien Aelfyre Whitemane took notice of this, as his world had also been destroyed by the very same device. The alien race known as the Zn'rx were also aware of the device and shot down Aelfyre's ship before he could warn James Power, in the hopes that he complete and it they could take it for themselves.

The Power kids discovered Aelfyre and explained his situation and how their father was in danger. He also told them that he was dying that that his race, which has fantastical powers, can transfer their powers upon death. Aelfyre then transfered his powers to the four children, giving each of them different powers.  Alex gained the power to alter gravity, Julie discovered she could fly at high speeds, Jack could control the density of objects, and Katie gained the power to absorb and control energy.  The four children decided to defeat the Zn'rx (or Snarks) and became a superhero team: the Power Pack. The gang used secret identities and used codenames: Alex became Gee, Julie became Lightspeed, Jack became Mass Master and Katie became Energizer.  Together, they used Whitemane's ship, the Starship Friday, as a base and mode of transportation.

Together, the kids used their powers and defeated the Snarks and rescued their parents.  They decided to continue their superhero career beyond their mission to save their parents for some time.  The decided to continue hiding their superpowered lives as the Power Pack secret from their parents and friends for their own safety, a fact that would sometimes cause them feelings of guilt.  The family soon moved to New York City where they had to juggle their personal problems as well as battling supervillains in their alter egos.


As their adventures went on, events would occur that would result in team members swapping powers (and as a result, changing codenames).
