Character Portrait


Jeff Goldblatt was one of the Hyper-Children in Hypergaard 1969. At that time, he took on the costume and power of a Powernaut. In 1987, he would claim that power for real - while starring as the Powernaut in a movie. Jeff took on foes of increasing power, and eventually dealt with the "Hyperpocalypse" in 1999. At that time, he disappeared until 2011. He now works alongside Powernauts, as the liberal arts teacher in Power School.


Jeff can be somewhat abrasive. But he generally wants to do the right thing. He was never a fighter, but he now fights when he has to. His main strength as a Powernaut, has been the ability to "not follow the script". He has worked with villains on occasion, to do what's right.

Powers and Abilities

Jeff went through most of his Powernaut career with the standard set of Powernaut powers, only at lower power levels. He has basically no training in fighting, but eventually gained massive practical experience.

Like any Powernaut, Jeff has the ability to sense power and determine the best way to use it. He used this power to great effect during the Hyperpocalype of 1999.

Jeff has always done his own movie stunts. That has included sword fights. So Jeff has had some sword-fighting ability. That came in handy during the Attack of the Mad Axeman in 1992.


Jeff wears the standard Powernaut costume, with cape. He sometimes wears a mask also; he always wore it in action, throughout the 1980s and much of the 1990s. This mask is translucent and fully covers his face.

Author's Notes

This is a rare Powernaut. He has only appeared in Powernaut stories! (Unless we eventually count "Onslaught 1802". I had designed that story for Ellipsis, but I might someday assign this Powernaut to it.)

His costume dates back to 1980, though. This was long before I had invented Powernauts. I thought I was dressing as Ellipsis. Or maybe X the Unknown, or maybe Captain Gonzo of the Galactic Safety Patrol. The drawing is also from then, based on a photo.

Powernaut 1987 has been in the background of Powernaut comics, almost as long as there have been Powernaut comics. Now his time in the spotlight is coming. So it's time for his Wiki.
