James Henry Kennedy spent his youth in the military, and when his tour was over, he sought out new adventures across the world. After a few years abroad, he found that he had a younger half brother that he had never met. His mother had remarried after the death of his father, but he didn't know since his mother had cut all ties with the family. His half brother, Jonathan Argos, told him about his dreams to one day become a superhero, and expressed his frustrations about having not responded to treatment from Herocorp. James suggested using some of his inherited fortune to help Jonathan start his own company. Jonathan was a technological genius, and with his half brothers investment he started a new company called Zero Technologies, named after a prototype suit he was working on that would give him the ability to defy gravity. After mastering his own suit, Jonathan convinced James to try one of his own, and soon created for him a suit that gave him the ability to manipulate inertia. In the suit, James ironically goes by the name of Major Impact, and when he is near the Zero Technologies central wireless battery, he is nearly unstoppable.
