Merrick was born in the United States, yet moved to London when his parents were killed in New York City. He moved back to New York City a few years ago to attend NYU. He was a double major with a talent for science. He has just recently graduated from NYU and has decided to take some time off before moving onto working for his Masters.


Merrick was born in New York City. He did not remain in the United States because his parents were killed in a random mugging when he was a toddler. He moved to London, under the protection of his Godparents. He remained in London, where he attended public school until the sixth grade when he began attending a well known prep school in England. Merrick attended Mason Academy until he graduated second in his class. Merrick was the Captain of the Swim Team, he had made the high honors society for 3 years in a row, and he won the London Science fair for his science project using magnetic energy and it's displacement of ions in the atomosphere. Merrick traveled Europe with a few friends of his for six months after graduation, where he learned a great deal about the man he wants to become in this world. When he returned to London, he decided to take his trust fund and return to his origins. He decided to return New York City where he double majored in Physics and Biology at NYU.

Merrick got himself briefly involved in the Heroes community when he was marked as a fugitive by the U.S Government. He fled the country and returned when he was cleared of those charges. When he returned he focused all of his energy on graduating and trying to discover what he could about the "Solution". With his recent graduation he has decided to take some time off and see where the world takes him.


  • Returned to NYC: September 2006 as a Freshman at NYU.
  • Met a man named Usutu who came to warn him that he was going to need to make a choice.
  • Merrick fled from the government getting himself involved in a band of people who had powers.
  • When he was cleared of those charges he returned to NYU to focus all of his attention on his studies.
  • He has recently graduated and taking some time off…




  • "The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?"

" We are faced with the paradoxical fact that education has become one of the chief obstacles to intelligence and freedom of thought.”


  • Concept: Hot, nerdy guy.
  • Grew up in London his entire life, and has an English accent even though he was born in the United States.
  • Favorite Color: Blue
  • Favorite Food: Sweet and Tangy Wings


In physics, magnetism is one of the forces in which materials and moving charged particles exert attractive, repulsive, or perpendicular to motion force on other materials or charged particles. Some well-known materials that exhibit easily detectable magnetic properties (called magnets) are nickel, iron, cobalt, gadolinium and their alloys; however, all materials are influenced to greater or lesser degree by the presence of a magnetic field.

Yet, Merrick has the ability to mentally alter magnetic fields in order to increase, decrease or redirect the flow of magnetic energy. With very little concentration, Merrick may be able to move magnetic metals. One with this ability could even reverse the polarity of magnetic fields, activate magnetism in normally-nonmagnetic metals or disorient those with magnetoception by shifting fields of magnetic flux. A brilliant mind, and passionate young man, Merrick has found a number of applications that he can use with his powers.


Matt_V4icon.png Matt - Merrick has not seen Matt for some time. Matt might have forgotten who he is but Merrick kept his promise and returned that money to the bank he stole from with Matt. He liked the uptight cop because Merrick thought he had a good heart.
Micah_V4icon.png Rebel - This is a good kid. Merrick liked the fact he started his "Rebel" alter ego and will help him in anyway. He just learned from Micah about the "Solution" and does not like the fact it exists. Merrick plans to find a way to counteract it hopefully with his talented friend. Merrick has not seen or heard from Micah since he returned to school but hope he is well.
Charlotte_V4icon.png Charlotte - Merrick found Charlottle a mystery. He liked that and was in a small way attracted to her because of it. Her amazing power, her amazing heart, and her amazing smile made him want to know more yet she is more interested in playing Mother hen to Micah, Cam, and the other children that Merrick thinks she does not know he exists….or she did not like him. Who knows…Merrick has not talked to her since he returned to school.
Charity_V4icon.png Charity - Merrick thinks about Charity every time he sees a UFO or a Mustang GTO. He has not talked to her in sometime and hopes she is well.
