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. Brady, who was engaged in "extra-curricular activities" with Renee at the moment of the explosion, awoke with the ability to telekinetically push objects away from him as long as the two maintain physical contact.
Brady discovered his power when Paula, upon discovering her own powers, lured him into a kiss. Enraged, Renee punched Brady and upon their contact, 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.
