Literally causes "calamities", perhaps by expanding natural, microscopic stress fractures in objects, thereby causing them to break.
From his native planet Touston, E. Davis Ester travelled to Earth in 2977 to attend an open audition for the Legion of Superheroes. His power, though, was considered too random to be practicable. He was thus a Legion Reject, but unlike most of his peers, he never tried to join the Legion of Substitute-Heroes.
After wandering aimlessly for some time following his rejection, he got a chance to apply again, whereupon he was somewhat surprisingly accepted. However, as his tenure occurred during the so-called Five-Year Gap, it was mostly unchronicled in comic books.
He has the distinction of being the last pre-ZH Legionnaire to join. He has so far appeared in no other Legion continuity.
