Grail was one of the Golden symbiote-powered members of Wetworks.

Joel Alonday joined the Philippine's Army Scout Rangers as soon as he became old enough to be eligible, quickly being promoted to the rank of Major. During a joint U.S./Philippines drug bust operation he met Colonel Jackson Dane, who was so impressed by Joel's performance that Grail became one of his first choices for membership in the new Team-7.

During a mission to the Balkans to shut down a supposed extremist faction Grail, Colonel Dane and the rest of Team-7 were bonded to Gold symbiotes which acted as lightweight and skintight suits of armor. The Symbiote which took Grail as host converted his body into a vessel of glowing chi energy over which he exercises near-absolute control. After discovering that the NSC told his loved ones he was dead, Grail did not want to reopen painful wounds and regretfully turned away from his former life.

Unable to return to his old life, and afraid of the effects the powerful energy emanating from his Symbiote would have on a normal human, Grail found relief in the arms of his teammate Mother One. After Wetworks disbanded, the two left together, but further details beyond that are unknown. Mother One has been found, deactivated and left for dead.

Both Grail and Mother One rejoined Dane in his new Wetworks team to stop the Vampire invasion from Thea Matter, however their relationship was ended.


  • Golden Symbiote: Like all members of Wetworks, Grail is bonded to a symbiote which normally hides inside him, but can flow out to coat his skin with a golden (or, in Grail's case, pale blue) armor.
    • Invulnerability: the suit makes him virtually invulnerable
    • Superhuman Strength
    • Superhuman Reflexes
    • Telepathic Link: He also has a telepathic link with the other symbiote wearers, the rest of Wetworks.
    • Chi State: Grail was a martial arts expert, whose "chi" was enhanced by his symbiote - after a while his Gold began to glow with a blue-white light, called a Chi-State. During his later appearances, Grail began to demonstrate considerable energy manipulation beyond simple chi.
      • Energy Form: the symbiote altered his substance turning him into pure Chi energy. This makes him especially hard to touch/hit. He also learned to project chi and various others energies as force blasts of potent strength.
        • Chi Charging: allowed him to use chi energy to empower hand-to-hand weapons or discharge it from his hands.
        • Chi Constructs he can form weapon constructs around objects or generate them.
        • Chi Based Flight: to a marginal extent, able to propel himself through the air at will.
        • Chi Touch: burn organic matter on contact
        • Chi Force Fields: create force fields that protect him from all directions and control their shape.
        • Chi Healing: able to heal most wounds very rapidly.
        • EM Energy Dissipation: He was able to contain and dissipate beings made of pure EM energy
        • Portal Manipulation: contain closing portals in his hands and keep them open
        • Energy Tracking: track energy signatures/sources
        • Radiation Sense: able to shift invisible radiation into the visible spectrum
        • EMP Fields: create EMPs and waves that interfered with both radio signals and telepathy
        • Energy Conversion: convert himself to pure energy to travel through electrical/phone lines.
