Brother Power, the Geek is a store mannequin who became animated when he was struck by a bolt of lightning. This also imbued him with superhuman abilities. He travels the world having psychedelic counter-culture misadventures.

In 1968, Brother Power came to life in a former tailoring shop (then a hippie haven) when a lightning struck on him. A rival gang, the Mongrels, invaded the haven and Power... used his power. After that, Brother Power was educated by his hippie friends. He learned chemistry and music. After other havoc done by the Mongrels, Power disappeared. His hippie friends found him as a freak at the Psychedelic Circus. Power was revived again when a short circuit spotlight recharged him. Power fled along with his friends and began a campaign to run for Congress. A police chase started when the circus owner complained to the police. Power managed to escape by jumping off the river bridge on a motorcycle[1].

After that, Brother Power and his hippie friends worked for Acme, a missile factory. After a missile exploded (sabotaged by Lord Sliderule), California Governor Ronald Reagan sent police officers to arrest Brother Power, who was held responsible for the event. Power hid in a rocket, and Lord Sliderule activated the commands to launch it into orbit.[2]

In 1989, Firestorm (as a fire elemental) was able to remove the rocket from orbit, and Power fell in Tampa, Florida, where he caused some havoc before be calmed by the hippie Chester Williams. [3] After that, we see the Geek enslaved in a freak circus by Dr. Abuse but he is able to flee.[4]
