Julie is a bit of a den mother when it comes to her younger siblings, and even though she has an older brother, Julie tends to be the designated babysitter and caretaker when the Power parents are out of the house. Though it's getting harder and harder to enforce that now that all the kids are teenagers, but Julie still makes sure that homework and chores are done.

While Julie may have powers given to her by a dying alien, she wants to have a normal teenage life. She loves to shop, dance, club, hang out with her friends, and keep up with the latest fashions and trends. It's because of this that sometimes she'll ignore her powers for days on end, not wanting to use them. She wants to be Julie Power, not part of Power Pack or even 'Lightspeed'.

While not in her superhero persona, Julie is quite shy and reserved, a wallflower that tends to be slow to make friends or warm up to things. Part of it may be because of an overabundance of caution when it came to her adventures, but she's always been reluctant about taking first steps.

Voracious Reader:
Julie loves books, and is quite often seen reading. While most people have ereaders and computers to read off of, Julie enjoys the musty smell of an old book from toluene and hexanal. She likes to read stories of all types, by mysteries and romance top her list. She's a huge fan of Nancy Drew.

Hard-Light Rainbow Trail:
Julie emits a distinct rainbow colored trail while flying. Sh's learned to manipulate this trail so that she could stand on it, use it to cushion the falls of others, and even as a hammock.

Hard-Light Shield:
A side-effect of the Rainbow Trail is that Julie can use it as a shield to deflect energy blasts. Lasers and other light emitting weapons cause her no damage, while bullet and solid projectiles can still affect her.

Due to her integration with Kymellian DNA and powers, Julie can heal from wounds easily. She has to eat to power this ability, but as long as she's eating she can heal rapidly from her injuries.

Self-Propelled Flight:
Julie can fly at supersonic speeds while creating a stream of refracted light. Her top speed is around 800 miles per hour, or just over Mach 1.

The second manifestation of Julie's Acceleration powers, which manifested after Julie had a strong desire to be in two places at once. This power allowed her to traverse great distances - generally her maximum range is New York to Los Angeles, seemingly without effort. She teleports in a flash of pink light. She has had to have visited a place before she can teleport to it.

Creative Writing:
Along with her love of reading, Julie loves to write. She's published a few stories, and keeps a blog about her adventures - her prior ones, and plans to write a book someday on being a teenaged hero someday.

Fashion Sense:
Julie has a keen fashion sense and is always on the leading edge of the latest thing. It's something she enjoys alot.

Hand To Hand:
Julie has basic hand to hand combat techniques. She can defend herself from a thug at a mall, but anyone with actual combat experiences is going to give her a hard time if she can't use her powers.

Julie has a suit of unstable molecules made by the Smartship Friday. The costume is temperature resistant, has a built in communicator, and can mend rips and tears in itself easily and is easily able to change from a set of civilian clothes to her superhero costume quickly.

Smartship 'friday':
Along with the other Power children, Julie has constant contact with the Kymellian alien intelligence known as 'Friday'. Friday has a limited ability to change shape. Mostly this is done to provide for the needs and comfort of passengers. Thus Friday can transform from a single compartment ship into a multiple compartment ship as needed. Friday is also able to travel through different environments including underwater. Friday also contains a basic knowledge of most civilizations and planets and serves as an aide when needed. Friday can teleport Julie to itself and then back to Earth if needed.

Power Family:
Despite the fact that her siblings are powered, her parents are not. If any threats are made to her family, she will usually be the first one to come running.

Julie was the only member of the Power Pack to outright kill a supervillain. And it has affected her poorly. She has nightmares about losing control of her powers and hurting others. She doesn't talk about it much, but it comes out in some of her writing prompts.

Public Identity:
The world found out that the Power Pack were mere children during the attack on New York, and it caused an outrage that a mere child was in the fight. They only wanted to help, but now that the world knows who they are, for ill or good, they can no longer hide with masks.

Julie is not a very confident young woman. She's unsure of herself, her sexuality, and her powers. She's always going second-guess herself on the things that she does - and she doesn't think she makes a very good hero, either. She is actually quite jealous of Alex's natural heroism, Jack's ingenuity and precociousness and Katie's undeniable charisma.
