Brek Bannin grew up on Tharr, the hottest world in the United Planets with human habitation. The descendents of the original colonists developed the ability to generate intense cold to combat the overwhelming heat of their home world. Taking the codename Polar Boy, Brek was the youngest person ever to try out for Legion membership, but was rejected because he lacked control over his powers. Rather than feeling rejected, Brekk formed his own team, becoming the founder and first leader of the Legion of Substitute Heroes. These Substitute Heroes often lent aid to the Legion of Super Heroes, but were disbanded when Polar Boy was successful in his bid to become a Legionnaire. Despite his youthful exuberance, Polar Boy proved to be a useful member of the LSH, which resulted in him serving a number of terms as a competent and resourceful leader. A compassionate and friendly man, Polar Boy is deeply dedicated to his teammates and is a quick, strategic thinker.

Polar Boy isn’t a show off, but he wants to be regarded as competent and skilled and works hard to achieve that. He is also determined and tenacious. He never gives up once he sets his mind to something... which can also make him seem stubborn. Despite his powers, Brek seems to be highly susceptible to catching the common cold.

Converted characters, most of the times, unavoidably exceeds the 45-point limitation that the ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying Game core book recommends. Character revised according to rules presented in ICONS Great Power book. Streamlined, once again, according to ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying: The Assembled Edition.
