Kid Enthusiastic (Classic)
|Kid Enthusiastic is a net.hero created by Drew Nilium. Not to be confused with Kid Enthusiastic-Y and Kid Enthusiastic (20).|
|Alter Ego:||James Takato Preponderation|
|Primary Writer:||Drew Nilium|
|Status:||Member of the LNH, member of the LNH Subgroup Without a Name, leader of The Core LNH|
Raised by two net.heroes who had dropped out of the public eye, Kid Enthusiastic joined the LNH at the age of 10 and almost immediately picked up a sidekick, er, partner, Casey von Aluminumfoil. Together with others they met during a quest to free an alternate universe from evil magic, they formed the LNH Subgroup Without a Name.
He's served as a member of the Legion in good standing ever since, often pitching in and helping with the ridiculous comic book science aspects of a plot, and just as often leaping before he looks with both feet. He founded The Core LNH and currently leads them.
During the sabertooth crisis, Kid Enthusiastic helped out (?) by summoning the cosmic being Enthusiasm, counterbalancing Simplicity and his agent.
His birthday is May 1st, 1992, and he is eleven years old. That's right! He was raised in OS/2.aka, Japan, and has graduated from Infi.net.y Academy high school.
...well, enthusiastic. Also, energetic, easily distracted, and highly open-minded. Sometimes, he's ten steps ahead of everyone around him; other times, he's completely engrossed in something unrelated. Tends to start projects and pull other people into them. Has a strong and reckless impulse towards helping people, and many of his inventions and projects are thrown together after he notices that, hey, somebody doesn't have something!
In Japanese, uses the personal pronoun "boku" (僕) for himself in most situations, tho also uses "wate" (わて) when he's with friends.
