Victor's parents constantly fought in front of him, which caused him to become a violent and troubled child. The only time Victor ever got along with his father was when they watched Mixed Martial Arts on TV, which they both loved. However, his mother disapproved of his father exposing Victor to the violence. This eventually led to their divorce, and Victor began getting along with his father on a daily base, but his mother only got to see him every other weekend.
In High School, Victor made some friends on the football team, but he was one of the team's worst players. He found his true calling when the school announced try outs for the wrestling team. He quickly became the star wrestler and he definitely earned his father's approval and respect. They had finally come to care for each other. It didn't last long, as Victor's father was killed in a shooting at a bank, which devastated Victor.
Victor was forced to live with his mother, who did not approve of him being a wrestler. Every day, Victor would go to the gym after school in order to blow off steam. One day, his mother had angered him so much that he was beating a punching bag and his skin began glowing orange and he was making dents in the punching bag. Eventually he punched it so hard that it broke and made a hole in the wall. It wasn't until then that he realized what had happened. He was tackled by security and taken to a cell until he mom had to bail him out.
When the future daughter of Mister Fantastic and Invisible Woman, Ms. Fantastic, comes to the past in order to save the world from Kang the Conqueror, she forms a team of teenage superheroes. Victor was given an invitation to join her team and he accepted the offer, and was given the code name Power Man, which he wasn't all for, but he accepted it. He was later classified by Scarlet Spider as the powerhouse of the team.
