Michael O’Conner is the first Supermanic introduced in MANIA.
Michael struggled his whole life with feelings of depression and hopelessness, causing a deep and conflicted divide between him and his family. He struggled through school before departing to pursue the one thing he felt skilled in; comedy.
His only true form of support was his long time girlfriend, Ashley. After countless months of just scraping by, everything came crashing down. Ashley, sick of Michael’s financial insecurity and his darker days, left without a single word one evening. This led Michael tumbling downward into deep despair until a tragic event in 2050.
He is now known as the Supermanic, "Jumpstart". Gifted with the unique ability to manipulate gravity, Jumpstart has proven himself time and time again to be one of the most powerful and potentially dangerous Supermanics in history.
