Background/History: Skew's eruption went largely unwitnessed. But certainly not unnoticed. Project Utopia and the local authorities searched the Miami area for months, looking for the source of the Electromagnetic Pulse that shut down most of the city in February 2007. It wasn't until April that the source found them when Skew dropped an armored car into the parking lot of Maimi's Mashin Roude clinic. The car contained several repeat offenders from the infamous Spangler Poesse. Ceastus Pax himself delivered Utopia's job offer to the young Nova.

Skew is something of a loose cannon on Team Tomorrow. He is wildly creative with his powers, but just as erratic in his tactics. He's as likely to wrap a car about his opponents as use the studs on his clothes as improvised projectiles. He is the current "king of collateral damage" on the team, but is never reluctant to help clean up his messes.

Quote: "Core the strongest nova? Yeah right, If he came at me I'd wrap the superstructure of the nearest building around him and drill 'em to the center of the Earth. Then they'd really be able to call him "Core". Ha!"

Powers/Tactics: Skew's powers are based his control of magnetic and related forces. He can manipulate most metals and other ferrous substances with ease, short out electronics with EMP or perform other feats of with electromagnetism with little effort. Skew is surprisingly intelligent and Utopia's educational efforts and his own innate creativity make him quite versatile and unpredictable in combat. He is constantly expanding his menu of tricks, such as working on more ways to directly effect living targets without killing them. Think of him as a young Magneto and you wouldn't be far off.

Appearance: Skew maintains a "grunge" look. Ragged jeans, t-shirts, leather jackets, etc. He's handsome in a rugged unkempt way and wears his black hair short and messy. Skew usually has a couple of days unshaven beard and sports goggles when flying. When "on" he trades skew metal band t-shirts for a white one with Team Tomorrow logo emblazoned on the front.
