Richie Foley was the best friend of Virgil Hawkins. After the Big Bang, Richie came up with the idea of being a super hero.
Over time, he began growing jealous of Static's powers, and yearned powers of his own. He joined Ragtag's gang; Ragtag had the ability to grant others superpowers for a brief period.
Over the years, Richie was exposed to Quantum Vapor residue that was on Static. It boosted his brain capacity, and made him a technopath.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Gravity Manipulation: As Push, Richie had the power to manipulate gravity. However, the effects were temporary and eventually wore off.
Technopathy: Gear had a direct neural link to Back-Pack.
All Gear's powers were strategical or tactical, rather than offensive. This meant he had to rely on equipment. He was considered little threat by most brawn-centered villains; only intelligent villains such as Dr. Odium and Brainiac saw his full threat.
Back-Pack: A supercomputer with a neural link to Gear that could cling to his back, or walk on four legs. It had in-built tracking and analyzing equipment.
Jet-Blades: Roller skates with built-in jet rockets.
Jet-Boots: Boots with jet rockets, which granted him the ability of flight.
Jet-Board: A flying surfboard.
- Zap-Cap, Mark II: Tiny grenades that could eject a constricting wire.
