    Major Story Arcs

    Meeting the Snarcks

    The alien race known as the Snarks came looking for the device and thus came into conflict with the Power Pack kids, whom had received amazing powers from Whitey, an alien who died trying to warn the Power family of the nearing danger. James had never found out that his children were not where in fact superheroes. Once he did, but his memory was erased thanks to Mirage, a member of the New Mutants during the Inferno crossover.

    James remains a loving parent to his children and a good husband to his wife Margaret Power.

    Grown up Children

    As time went on, the children grew up; Alex joined the Future Foundation group of the Fantastic Four and went of into space with them. Some months later, Julie left the house as well to join a group of former superheroes and eventually joined the Runaways. Later on, she also joined the Future Foundation, which caused Jack and Katie to be the only kids still living in the Power residence. James and his wife Margaret eventually wanted their kids back and pleaded to the Fantastic Four to bring their two oldest children back to Earth, which luckily worked out. Now James and Margaret where reunited with their 4 children.
