Background:
Aaron Yoo was once a physics student at City University fo New York, assisting in some truly cutting edge experiments with electromagnetism. Unfortunately, his zeal to earn good grades and get into a prestigious job, he ignored safety warnings and continued to work during a thunderstorm. The next thing Aaron remembered was waking up on the other side of the lab, his body one big ache. The window was shattered, rain was blowing inside, and his equipment was half-melted and smoldering.

Trying to save his notes from the rain, but too weak to stand up yet, he gestured feebly at the lab table -- only to have the metal table slide across the floor toward him. He tried it again, this time snagging some instruments from the counter nearby. The notes were soon forgotten as he tested the extent of his control over magnetism. Before long, he could not only attract and repel ferrous objects, but emit blasts of electricity, protect himself in a magnetic bubble, and even fly!

That was the ends of Aaron Yoo's academic career.

Who needed a fancy degree to get rich when you had superpowers? Aaron fashioned a costume for himself and christened himself "Polaris". He then went on a robbery spree that only ended when the White Rabbit, a member of the Denver Defenders, He escaped from police custody easily, and headed back to the street for more action, and more money.
 
Personality/Motivation:
Polaris's goal as a supervillain is simple: get rich. He grew up poor, and he doesn't ever intend to be poor again. He mostly commits robberies, though he'll gladly sign up to work for another supervillain if the pay is good, he's treated well, and he doesn't have to do anything over the line (like kill someone, or even maim them). He hasn't done a very good job of saving his money so far -- he mostly throws it away gambling and needless luxuries -- but he's enjoying himself immensely, so he doesn't really care as long as he doesn't go to prison.
 
Quote:
"Kind of hard to shoot me with a bent gun barrel. Isn't is, cop?"
 
Powers/Tactics:
Polaris's powers derive from his ability to control magnetism. Many of them only work on ferrous objects -- for example, he can only Missile Deflect ferrous attacks (which would not include most bullets), and his Dispel (representing his ability to shred or otherwise disrupt metal objects) only involves things made of iron, steel, and the like (such as most super-technology gadgets). Other powers, such as his lightning blasts, suffer no such limitations.

Polaris hasn't learned much in the way of super-combat tactics. He tends to pick one foe he knows he can affect and sticks to attacking that person until they are defeated or he is. In time, he could become a clever tactician, but he's not there yet.
 
Appearance:
Polaris's costume is gold and gray. The torso has an extended star pattern in gold from his shoulders to his belt. His belt, boots, and gauntlets are gold, as is his half-face mask. Out of costume, Adam Yoo is a handsome young man of Chinese descent. His hair is black and cut short, and his face often has an infectious grin... especially when he's just made a big score and can afford to party.
