Doctor Gravity is a superhero inspired by Kick-Ass. Doctor Gravity is an English major who highlights as a superhero by night, working with Kick-Ass and Justice Forever. However, to the world at large he is a physics professor at Columbia who built a baseball bat-like pole called the "Gravity Pole" which can make something twenty times its actual weight. If he flips it around it allows him to float. In actuality though it is a baseball bat covered in tin foil and he came up with his backstory to make a statement about who he wants to be.
