Simon Powell is a crew-member from an American fishing boat, the Gettysburg. The character appeared in the 1993/94 comic series Thing From Another World: Eternal Vows.


Originally part of the Erskine-Thing during the events of the comic-book series The Thing from Another World, a creature broke off from the rest of Erskine-Thing's body and became a fish which escaped. The fish was then caught by the American fishing boat, the Gettysburg, and assimilated Powell. Driven by a need to replace dead cells generated by its heightened metabolism, the Powell-Thing attacked and consumed the inhabitants of the small town of Wallace Harbour on Stewart Island, New Zealand. His local girlfriend, Jenny Campbell, was also infected following intercourse.
