Late for school, Brad Thomas Boyd cut through a dark alley one fateful day and witnessed Lurking Girl apprehending The Man With the Black Hat. By helping the early LNHers, he was made an honorary member of the team. It wasn't until several years later, though, that he became a true member of the team; when Marvel Zombie Lad put out the call to battle Doctor Killfile, Brad responded— but arrived too late, after everything had already taken place. Nevertheless, Lurking Girl and the others offered him membership in the LNH, an offer which he accepted, taking the name of Bad-Timing Boy.

Later, he joined a subgroup for training younger members, Generation Y. For a time, he worked for Jennifer Frost as a member of Teenfactor[1]. As time has gone by, he has become one of the stalwart mainstays of the LNH.


Bad-Timing Boy was the youngest member of the LNH immediately following the Cosmic Plot Device Caper, so he tends to look up to the older members of the LNH. At the same time, he tends to look down on some of the newer, younger members of the LNH, even as they look to him for inspiration (yes, there's a lot of looking going on while he's around). He is very confident in himself, despite his tendency towards making mistakes.
