To Protect and Preserve
Zip Zap was briefly a member of the AIA, in there research division, where he served as a test subject. His strange physiology and power-set had never been seen prior. Tests were necessary for the betterment of human to altered relations.
Due to the way Eduardo was given his powers some speculate it's possible that he is among the first ever biologically human engineered Pixaliens or New breed. Having Zan's blood flowing through his veins seems to have changed his make-up and made him substitutable to high concentrations of energy.
In the Zan Narratives there is a list of people who suffered horrific accidents; as a result of Pixalien related events. One such event describes in detail one elderly lady's account of a bomb explosion in the southern United States. There was a gentleman who managed to push her from an oncoming truck. Just as she saw a Blue explosion of light appear. The surrounding area was devastated and the young man, who seemed to be the epicentre of the blast was destroyed. Later we learn that this exact moment would later be described by the A.I.A. as "The Domineo Event." The event that created the Lightning Lynx.
Lynx and Zip Zaps powers are very similar as it was the same event that created them both. Whereas Lynx's powers are more of an electrically charged speed; Zip Zaps is more as an energy propelled flight. These two have met on several occasions and till this day have a less than healthy rivalry. They sometimes fight like an old married couple or as Axel Ramone once described "...like two brothers fighting over the last slice of pizza."
