Explanation of the conversion: Although through all his appearances Chris had the Legacy Virus, this had been cured, so I wrote him without it and without it's effects on his powers.

X-Men Unlimited #8 History: Chris Bradley is a mutant whose powers emerged while he was teenager. He was shortly contacted by the mutant heroes X-Men, who offered to take Bradley to their School for Gifted Youngsters so that he could learn how to control his powers. (Presumably around this time he encountered the mutant mercenary Maverick.) During his training, the X-Men discovered that Bradley had also contracted the Legacy Virus, a debilitating disease contracted by mutants. With this discovery, Bradley returned home in order that he might live the rest of his remaining life with his parents and girlfriend Donna Funaro (X-Men Unlimited #8).

When his house was attacked by anti-mutant fanatics, Bradley sought out Maverick, as the X-Men were preoccupied at the time with the psychic menace of Onslaught. Maverick, who himself had the Legacy Virus, helped Bradley and his family relocate to Florida under assumed names. Bradley would also occasionally help Maverick on his adventures, but when Maverick's virus went into remission, the two fell out of contact.

New Warriors II #0 Bradley later took it upon himself to become a costumed hero in order to make a difference while he was alive. He left Florida for New York (New Warriors II #0).

With the help of Donna, Bradley took up residence in New York City. He was on hand when the New Warriors fought the monster Blastaar, and accepted the group's offer of membership. Bradley has continued to remain with the New Warriors.

Trivia: Bolt II is in no way connected to the original Bolt, who appeared in Spider-Man #74.

Powers: Chris has the mutant ability to generate large amounts of electricity which he primarily uses to project as blasts of energy. He can surround himself with an electrical field, and often does so in combat.

Formerly Chris has difficulty controlling his powers because of the Legacy Virus, but he has since been cured.
