Malcolm is the second son of Isaiah King born after his father’s powers activated thus giving him even more potential than his older brother. As a child he grew up with his mother and older brother after his father was “presumed dead” though he was actually imprisoned after he went crazy as the villain Despot. His brother was recruited into Stormwatch and he lived a relatively normal life. He had his powers activated while they visited his father’s grave. After this he became a junior Stormwatch recruit. It was here he eventually met his villainous father who had been freed and was mind controlled into attacking his brother Battalion. After his fathers defeat he remained on the Stormwatch team.
