Carter Darson was a university student working on a way to unlock the unused 90% of the human mind. He succeded, but the result drove him to schizophrenia. Using his godlike telekinetic powers, he split himself into two halves, representing the opposite sides of his nature.
The evil Carter quickly immobilized the good Carter by locking him in a steel vault on the outskirts of Net.ropolis. The evil Carter, convinced he would be unable to partake in his dastardly deeds whilst the LNH was present, used his powers to transport himself to an alter.net dimension. There, posing as a hero called Brain-O, he joined the Society of Net.Heroes and used his powers to control and warp its members. After a while, however, he started worrying about his other half, and sent a giant robot called Roboto to watch over him.
Unfortunately, Roboto inadvertantly awoke the good Carter, who immediately hooked up with LNHers Old Comics Man, Sister State-the-Obvious and Bad-Timing Boy. Roboto was not beaten, however, and its failsafe mechanism sent Carter and the LNHers to Brain-O's universe. With the aid of former SNHers Somber Lass and Mind Man, Brain-O was deposed and destroyed, and Carter and company left for home.
Powerless, Carter was preparing to go his own way to try and recover some of his tattered memory when Monark, world dictator and ex-LNHer from 2012, returned a limited degree of his powers to him. He was convinced by Sister State-The-Obvious and Old Comics Man to join the LNH, despite still wanting to get away for some serious soul-searching.
After traveling to the future to battle against the Overlord, Carter joined The Team.
Friendly, if somewhat shy. Carter is often confused, but not stupid. He is also somewhat naive about certain subjects due to his amnesia. Eager to prove his heroic nature, due to his evil half's actions.
Powers and Abilities
Telepathy. Perhaps (very minor) telekinesis. Used to have nigh-godlike powers, but lost them.
He wears his brown hair in a floppy, semi-long style. He is fairly tall (about 6 foot 2) and thin. Whenever he uses his powers, his skin has the nasty habit of glowing bright green. His costume consists of a pair of John Lennon-esque sunglasses and an outfit reminscient of the cover to the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper" album.
