E. Davis Ester of the planet Touston was bad luck personified. He caused jinxes wherever he went. He took the name Calamity King and journeyed to Earth. When he first applied for membership with the Legion of Super-Heroes, he shook Starboy's hand, possibly causing Thom's eventual expulsion from the Legion. Calamity King was denied membership, due to the fact that he would be as much a hazard to the team as he would be to enemies.

In the alternate timeline of 5 Year Gap, Calamity King became a full-fledged Legionnaire. After his initial rejection as a Legionnaire, Calamity King drifted from job to job, causing disasters wherever he went. When the Legion was desperate for new members, Calamity King noticed that the Legion were accepting some former rejects. He reapplied to the Legion and was accepted.

Character made according to rules presented in ICONS Great Power book and ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying: The Assembled Edition.
