LImbless is a boy named Joel Tang. Born with no limbs, he was on the verge of depression until he discovered his "Phantom Limbs"
- Joel is of Chinese descent and is the result of a one night stand that a nuclear physicist had at a rave. Because she was too inebriated, she doesn't remember anything about the man except he spoke beautiful Cantonese.
- Because of the close proximity to radiation the fetus had in the womb, the baby ended up with odd characteristic in its genetics. Mainly that the genetic blueprint telling the fetus to produce limbs was erased but it also developed the latent potential to develop powers. When he was first seen by the doctors they thought that they should just humanely get rid of the infant but the mother refused she loved the infant even despite his defect.
