Additional Information & Character Background:

The men in the McCormack family can trace their military service in an unbroken line back to the Revolutionary War. They have all risen through the ranks to become officers and Ian is no exception. An easy-going “Texas Boy”, Ian is a genuinely nice guy. It was after working the Yorktown clean up that his powers manifested. The current theory is that the new radiation shielding installed in his helicopter for data gathering runs into the hot zone somehow, after repeated exposure, altered the radiation in such a way as to cause a mutation rather than death.
