Simon worked as an assistant at a pharmaceutical company. They had been developing a new birth control method for women when he was hit by a beam of radiation. At first, he was worried by the potential for harmful effects, but he soon discovered that he had actually developed something like a superpower. He could transform his body -- like those shapeshifters out of the comic books! However, he could only seem to take one form so far, a female version of himself! He sighed and figured that it was just the kind of superpower someone who got hit by a mixture of estrogen and radiation would get!
