Joshua Michael Allen was a bike messenger for a local Metropolis package company. Upon running into a giant alien monster, Joshua snapped, tired of how much he hated living in Metropolis, he attacked the monster with his damaged bike. While he was in the grip of the monster he grabbed an electrical cable and plunged it deep into the monster, an act that surely should have killed him.
After waking up in the hospital with a broken leg, Joshua lost his job and girlfriend. S.T.A.R. labs called him in to go run tests to see if encountering the alien monster had any effect on his body. During the procedure, Joshua absorbed the life force of the doctors and was transformed into the forever, hungry Parasite!
