Walter Sampson, the younger brother of Sheldon was one of the six original members of the Union of Justice. Unlike his brother, Walter advocates more direct political activism on the part of superheroes and feels that they need to fix the ailing economy and the president what he should be doing. In his elder years, he created blueprints for fixing global problems involve climate engineering, eliminating the income tax, underground homes, and a ban on all religions. These views brought him into direct conflict with his brother and sister-in-law, Grace.
In his younger years, Walter and George (also known then as Skyfox) have a relationship marked by both friendship and frequent antagonism on George's part. At one point George challenges Walter to a fencing match where the loser must run naked through Central Park. When Walter is later running naked he is joined by an equally nude George on the run. On another occasion, George has his sidekicks telekinetically rip Walter's penthouse apartment out of its building and place it in Africa. This greatly upset Walter and was even more infuriated when his own brother took George's side in the matter.
When George's girlfriend Sunny breaks up with him and begins dating Walter, it ends George's friendship with him. This later leads George to cut all ties with the rest of the team, especially his best friend, Sheldon.
Walter would eventually marry Sunny and finish the Supermax prison for supercriminals that George designed, though George would eventually bear a vendetta against Walter. Walter and Sunny had a son together they named Jules.
Many years later Walter tells George that he used his telepathy to make Sunny fall in love with Walter and leave George, though Walter has repeatedly denied doing this to Sheldon.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
The only person on whom Walter's powers do not work is Sheldon, although George wore a special set of ear plugs of his own design that blocked Walter's telepathic attacks.
