When the Ax-Cell-Erator exploded in the Boughl Science Building, the freshmen inside were gifted with superpowers based on their thoughts at the time of the explosion. Renee, who was engaged in "extra-curricular activities" with Brady at the moment of the explosion, awoke with the ability to telekinetically pull objects toward her as long as the two maintain physical contact.
Renee discovered her power when Paula, upon discovering her own powers, lured Brady into a kiss. Enraged, Renee punched Brady and objects started flying. She and Brady became a turbulent addition to the Freshmen, as Pusher and Puller, accompanying the team on a mission to fix the Ax-Cell-Erator and restore the Freshmen to normal.
