Powers/Abilities: A. J. can release an energy form from his body. His mind inhabits this form, which can unleash various forms of energy, though his body is left defenseless.

(Freex#17) - Under unexplained circumstances, when the Freex passed through the time/space portal from Ancient Egypt, they were joined by A. J., and all of their minds were made to believe that A. J. had been with the group all along, replacing Michael (Plug). A. J. even remembered saving Cayman from Rafferty, the action which brought about the seeming death of Plug. He also replaced Plug as the boyfriend of Sweetface.

(Freex#18) - Contrary convinced AJ, Angela, and Lewis to lead her into the realm of the Fire People, with the agenda of usurping more of the advanced technology she would find there. They rejoined Ray, who explained what he had learned about their origins from books he had found, including hints that Contrary was Wetware Mary. A. J. saved Contrary from the Monsters of the Fire People that had found her. As Val and Cayman returned to Earth, Contrary tried to forge an alliance with the Freex, but AJ recognized that she had ulterior motives and resisted her. Contrary tried to seduce AJ, and he attacked her, but she incapacitated him with a disruptor weapon and then took him away to her citadel for further care.






Comments: Created by Gerard Jones, Scott Kollins, and Jon Holdredge.

    One can only guess what they had planned for AJ, because I seriously doubt anyone from the Ultraverse will EVER see the light of day again.

    AJ's power reminds of Tyrone Jessup (Voyager) of the New Universe.
