In Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe style, here's some information on me. (yes, I'm rather a fan of comics- it's a nasty habit I picked up when I was a lot younger. I kicked it for a couple of years recently- mainly due to comics being _really_ poorly written, but I've been dragged back into that world in recent months. Blame Kurt Busiek- if he weren't such a good writer... oh, and blame rec.arts.comics.marvel.universe as well)

History: Andrew Theisen was born in Fairfax County Hospital in Virginia, youngest of three children. His father was one of the directors of the National Archives in Washington, D.C. at the time. His early youth was fairly uneventful, save for a traumatic incident when his sister, Elizabeth, threw sand in his left eye while playing one day. Though she later claimed the incident was an accident, it nearly blinded the youth.
His family moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1977. There, the young man's incredible genius was first discovered while in the 1st grade, when he was singled out (along with several of his fellow students) to participate in an advanced curriculum in school. Unfortunately, this singling out would later prove to have consequences for his social and emotional growth.
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 160 lbs.
Strength level: Cthulhudrew possesses the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engages in moderate regular exercise.
Known superhuman powers: Cthulhudrew possesses a variety of superhuman powers, their origin unknown. Presumably they are inborn abilities, making him a mutant. (Unless I happened to run across some sort of mutagenic compound that I'm unaware of...)
Foremost among these powers is his ability to bodily generate electrostatic energy which he can release or harness in order to burn out lightbulb filaments. This ability is not presently under his conscious control, nor is it known if it can be used in any other manner. The maximum amount of electrical energy he can generate is likewise unknown.
Cthulhudrew also possesses the ability to affect probabilities on a regular basis. He has been observed to manipulate events on a fairly small scale (such as "finding" money in the street), as well as larger scale ones ("chance" meetings with people he hadn't seen in a long time, that he just happened to be thinking of). This "luck" ability is mostly subconciously controlled, though he has been known to consciously activate it through a creative visualization/meditation technique he knows.
His final ability is the apparent psychic link he shares with his older brother. The two often refer to themselves as "psychic brothers", and have been observed to perform such feats of mental ability as finishing one another's sentences. This ability seems to operate in a relative manner to the amount of time the two spend in one another's company.
Other abilities: Numerous. (Modesty forbids me from saying much more, at least at present.)
