Janet Potato ran a potato farm in Potato County, Wisconsin. She was hit by lightening in the east potato field one night during a radiation storm, and her essence scattered among all the potatoes in the field.

His powers are as follows: crying on command, limited flight, not leaving the house (or even washing) for days, laser beams from palms, super strength, chronic insomnia, regular suicidal thoughts
