History: Franklin is the son of Reed and Sue Richards, two of the founding members of the Fantastic Four. The FF are 4 superhumanly powered heroes who received their powers after being exposed to 'cosmic rays'. When the FF and other heroes sacrificed themselves to stop the mutant called Onslaught, Franklin was brought to the Massachusetts Academy by his grandfather for safekeeping. There he became close friends with Artie and Leech. However, the FF were not dead. When the heroes sacrificed themselves Franklin unconsciously used his mutant reality warping powers to create a pocket universe to which he transported the heroes. When all the heroes returned from this pocket dimension Franklin left GenX and returned to his family.

Powers: Little Franklin Richards is one of the most powerful beings on the face of the Earth. Because both his parents were exposed to 'cosmic rays', he was born a mutant. He can warp reality, the ability to rearrange the molecular structure of matter. At one stage he possessed precognitive abilties (the ability to see into the future) but has not displayed them in a long time. When he fully deelops his powers he will also possess telepathy, telekinesis and the ability to fire energy blasts.
