Power Pack first premiered in Marvel Comics in August of 1984. The team consists of four siblings Alex, Julie, Jack, and Katie, who all live in Virginia with their mother and father, Dr. James Power, who is a brilliant physicist. When Power discovers the ability to generate energy from antimatter, he gains some unwanted attention as the process is known to destroy planets.
Aelfyre Whitemane, a member of the alien race known as the Kymellians, comes to Earth to stop Dr. Power as his planet was decimated by the antimatter process. Aelfyre is mortally wounded in a battle with the Sanrks, another alien race seeking this power. The villainous Sanrks then kidnap Dr. Power and his wife in an attempt to have the doctor work for them. With his dying breath, Aelfrye bestows his power to Powers’ children so that they may rescue their parents, and thus, the Power Pack was born.
In a few iterations of the team, Franklin Richards, son of Mr. Fantastic and Sue Storm, has been a member of the team. At this point, it’s unclear what version of the Power Pack Marvel Studios will pull from, so Franklin’s involvement is up in the air.
