Blaster has the power to shoot energy blasts from his hands. He can "detonate" with explosions of energy that can destroy up to 2 city blocks. If he does this it drains him almost to a comatose state.
His power stems from his inner KI energy is in over abundance and regenerates at a quick rate and is 50x that of normal humans. He can regenerate himself physically from mere cells. In other words he is immortal. He was eaten by Gemini but regenerated himself and was fully finctional within a year.
He and his brother were victims of an industrial accicent while trying to evade ca[pture from Vanguard . The two merged into one being named Doozie. Doozie is mentally retarded and is under the care of Remix, who is introduced in the wrath story arc and he is reintroduced as Doozie and then the proto-man in later issues of the wrath story arc. He then turns back to Doozie and is lost in the retarded world of Doozie.
