Joey can run along walls and roofs. Technically he has a specific version of gravity manipulation. He can walk/stand/jump around on walls and roofs and feel exactly like he is standing on the ground. Even his hair and clothes fall in the direction he is standing.

He's unsuccessfully tried shift his gravity to fly. Though he's able to shift his gravity just enough to have a sort of 'super' jump. He usually enjoys crouching on ceilings and jump attacks moving from walls and roofs.

[Parkour] It probably helps that he has the ability to wall climb, but he's always enjoyed parkour and running all over the city wherever he wants. It helps that he gets to be a massive showoff.

[Fast] Joey has always been fast. Maybe it was because he was always running away from the bigger kids or because God knew he'd be small and lanky so blessed him with speed. Either way he's fast and agile about to duck and move quicker than average.

[Break Dance] Put on the beats. Joey loves a good break dance session almost as much as he loves loud music. Head spins are his forte.

[Street Smart] Joey grew up on the streets practically by himself. He knows the streets to avoid, and has a natural sense of dangers to avoid. He can find anything you need on the streets.

P E R S O N A L I T Y

Joey is easy going, friendly and pretty charming when he wants to be. Joey tends to be able to get along with most people. He's relaxed enough that most people don't get annoyed with him and he's outgoing enough that he will talk to anyone. So he is on good terms with a great many people however he doesn't make connections with people. Which helps his likability since he tends not to share enough about himself for anyone to take offence to. He likes to think of himself a drifter. Everyone enjoys having him around but no one notices when he stops hanging around.

Joey is incredibly independent. He's been on his own for a really long time, fending for himself so he knows how to look after himself. Joey deals with his own problems in his own time and expects everyone else to do the same. So don't come to him with your problems, he doesn't care. The Superhero Squad to Joey is less of a team and more of a job. He works with the others, fights crime and in return gets fed and a roof over his head. It's a good deal and the moment it stops working for him, he's out. Which causes a lot of friction between him and Connor.

Joey has a sarcastic sense of humor. No matter the time or person, Joey always has a sarcastic comment to say. Usually something negative and derogatory. Often aimed at their leader Connor. Joey likes being a smartass and a showoff. Which when he lets the side of himself show can rub others the wrong way.

H I S T O R Y


Joey was born and grew up on the Eastside of Violet City where all the poor migrants seemed to huddle together in solidarity. Except his parent's were from a place much further away than any of their migrant neighbors. His parents were from another world in fact. Joey looks the same but was born different from everyone else, that's why he can do what he can. He also knows that he heritage is a secret he will take to his grave, not even his teammates know the truth about him.


When Joey was 12 the time came for his parents to head home. They packed their bags and left their offspring behind. Joey was impure, born on another world, and so bringing him back with them was completely out of the question. That was the last day Joey saw his parents. Ever since he's been on his own but he's never been lonely.


The one night Joey got himself in uncharacteristic trouble. He was being a smart ass and a showoff and he rubbed the wrong guy the wrong way. Luckily Connor showed up. Saved Joey's life and offered him a place to use his skills for good. It took a few months of convincing but eventually Joey was compelled to see the benefits of joining the Superhero Squad. He's now the newest member, having been with them for a year and he's slowly warming up to them.

So begins...

Connor flipped his last pancake onto the top of the stack. "Lunch!" Connor called out into the apartment to his fellow teammates. He'd had a good sleep last night and in a moment of good will, he'd offered to make breakfast but he guessed by the fact it was currently midday that he technically made lunch instead. Steam rose of from the stack of pancakes as he moved them to the main bench. "Don't eat all of them Miss piggy," Connor said with a wink to Amellia.

Then when Connor had just picked up the top pancake and covered it with his choice of toppings, the phone rang. Not his mobile phone. The apartment phone. It gave off a high pitched squeal and everyone in the apartment knew what it meant. It meant there was work to be done. Superhero Squad work to be specific. Connor groaned as he put his pancake down and closed his mouth.

"What?" He asked grumpily into the phone. It was Barney. Their official council watchman. It was Guardian's, out causing trouble, doing what they do. Couldn't they ever just take a day off? Barney didn't say much, which Connor liked about him, not much point chatting about when there was work to be done. Connor hung up the phone and looked to his teammates with a reluctant smile. "Guardians. These are going to have to wait." He said shoving the pancakes aside.His stomach growled sharpening the point that these villians were keeping him from a good feed.

"Someone go wake Joey up," He asked, not knowing that Joey was yet to come home from his night of debauchery. Connor shoved on his boots and his jacket. All fire proof thanks to Amellia's ample free time and need for projects. "Everyone ready?" He called, his hand on the door ready to go. The faster they got there the less people the Guardians would be able to hurt. All Connor got was a location and that the Guardians were out terrorizing citizens. He'd send a message out to anyone who wasn't home and they would meet up with the rest of them there.

As Artemis emerged from her room and headed towards the kitchen she sighed, running her fingers through her hair before pulling it up using the elastic around her wrist. It being 7 a.m. she had only been home around 5 hours, having been called in for an emergency at the zoo the night before.

As she entered the kitchen Artemis automatically went to the sink, and started washing the dishes from the night before. While the team did have a couple amazing cooks neither of them were particularly good at cleaning up the mess hey made. Though over time they became better at cleaning up as they cooked Artemis always ended up doing the dishes and tidying up the rest. Why she insisted on the kitchen being clean before and after she cooked was beyond even Artemis' knowledge, especially considering the mess her room was continuously in, but she couldn't kick the habit and honestly if she didn't clean she doubted the team's home would be half as clean as it was.

Once she was finished Artemis made herself her usual breakfast; a fresh fruit smoothie, three slices of toast, and three over-easy eggs. If the black haired super-heroine had one consistent thing in her life it was her 45 minutes cleaning the kitchen and making herself breakfast, usually all happening while the rest of the team was asleep. After she ate and cleaned up after herself Artemis headed out the door, grabbing her keys, and helmet on the way out.


Five hours Later

As Artemis exited the Lion exhibit she gave Talia, the head of the safari exhibits, a sheepish smile. After feeding the felines at noon she had played with them to get them some extra exercise and had once again decided to nap in the sun with them afterwards. While none of her co-workers really minded her close relationship with the animals they had, on more than one occasion, asked her to make it less obvious during the visiting hours. Artemis watched Talia try to give her a scolding glare but slowly the smile broke through and the woman shook her head. "That might work on me but it doesn't work on Jared, who wants to see you later. You're little nap caused a scene. One of the visitors thought you were dead." Artemis groaned but smiled as well, following Talia to the jeep that would take her to the zoo office.

On the way there the two chatted about random things, zoo gossip mostly, but when they reached there destination Talia quickly made an excuse and left Artemis on her own. Rolling her eyes and chuckling Artemis headed into the building that held all the offices. Going straight to Jared's office, Artemis skipped the wait she was hoping to use to make some excuse when Rashel, Talia's younger sister and Jared's assistant, waved her right in. Walking in Artemis pulled her bottom lip in-between her teeth and looked anywhere in the room but at the desk in front of her.

Jared only waited about a minute before clearing his throat and standing up, drawing Artemis' attention. Jared was a Italian man in his mid-thirties who had taken ownership of the zoo a years ago, pouring money and resources into it to make it an amazing zoo, before it having not been much more than a glorified petting zoo. After a full two minutes of silently staring at each other Artemis went to speak but Jared stopped her, holding up a hand. "I don't want excuses or apologies, nor promises you won't do it again. Even if you were to say it we'd both know it to not true." Artemis flinched and looked away, fully expecting to get fired or suspended. Just then there was an explosion nearby and Artemis jumped a bit in shock. A moment later her phone went off in her pocket and Artemis whispered a thank you as she opened it, seeing it was a message from Connor to head downtown. Shoving her phone in her pocket Artemis bolted out of the office, tossing an apology over her shoulder.

Getting through the crowded Zoo and to the employee parking lot took a few minutes but then she was on her bike, headed toward what seemed to be Central Park if the large cloud of smoke was any indication.
