Zeke is very headstrong, proud and stubborn. He is used to getting things that he wants, even if it means taking them by force. He is flirty and is exceedingly charismatic. He follows orders and answers accordingly to all authority.
Zeke was born and raised in Chicago, IL. He was always used to being the center of attention and a joker, until he discovered he was a mutant when he defended himself after he was jumped by bullies in his high school. Soon after, he became the target of many anti-mutant lynch mobs in based in chicago. Getting angry for having his life threatened, Norm lost control of his powers, nearly killing the entire mob. The next day, a representative from the X-Men came looking for him. Still weak from the day before, Norm still tried to fight. The hero easily over-powered him, stiking him with lightning, shorting out his powers. She then brought him to the Xaiver Institute. Norm then finished his senior year of high school there, and began training there but soon left after the Cataclysm,feeling the "New" X-men had no real vision. After living on the streets for a few months, he found and joined the Brotherhood of Mutants,under the codename Ohm.
