His parents Michael, Sr. and Rosemary Garfield died in a deadly plane crash when he was 8 years old and his uncle Marvin (his father’s older brother) died in the line of police duty at the hand of the Heavy Gear Mafia when he was 17 years old.

But, at the same time Professor Power’s (Will Power’s Father) matter density wave hits him as he has his accident causing a unique conveyance of events. When Malcolm jump out of the vat a few minutes later he slowly realizing that the chemical in the vat he fell in and the sudden change of the trains density allowed it to fuse with his body.
