Kid Olympus is the heroic name of Jorge Ponce, a member of Pride High.
Jorge was at the right place at the right time when a super villain crime was being perpetrated. The former hero known as Mischief (long retired and in street clothes) also happened to be on the scene and was forced to come out of retirement. Jorge bravely stepped in to protect the innocent bystanders and was hit by an accidental power transfer from Mischief. Jorge was nearly killed and remained in a coma for weeks. When he came to, his eyes had changed from black to dark purple (like Mischief) and he began to exhibit strange mental powers. Mischief ended his retirement to mentor the newly superpowered teen.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
His empathy and telekinesis both require line of sight. Unlike other empaths, his "emotional radar" requires active concentration and works better when focused on a single individual.
Street smart fast-talking hustler. Computer savvy. Great mimic.
Spanglish speaking smart-mouthed punk. Loves to give his teammates shit. Calls his mentor, Mischief, "Papi" and is generally disrespectful toward adults. In reality though his bond with the elder Mischief is very tight. Jorge is fiercely loyal, but you wouldn't want to be his enemy, especially if you were formerly a friend. A vegetarian ever since his first empathic link with an animal, Jorge grudgingly accepts his boyfriend Mindsweeper's love of steak.
