Dexter is seen in numerous Cartoon Network & DC Comic Books, and was in his own Cartoon Network television show entitled "Dexter's Laboratory".
Dexter is a 10-year old genius boy, who has a hidden secret Laboratory known only by himself, Mandark, and Dee-Dee. He was born by his Mom and Dad (actual names). He also has a sister, Dee-Dee, who constantly mocks him and disrupts his inventions. However, like any boy, Dexter is sometimes overconfident and overexcited and can get carried away and/or make careless mistakes. Dexter has an accent similar to Tartakovsky's (his creator) accent, as an homage to him. Dexter's own favorite superhero is Major Glory.

Powers & Abilities
Dexter is a boy genius with a weird accent. He is the creator of many inventions including giant robots and teleportation devices. He is also accredited with such accomplishments as granting a monkey superhuman powers, and even using time traveling at one point in a special episode/movie. His house and lab also have many security measures, which Dee-Dee somehow always seems to pass by without any harm. He has shown to be able to go into space before with less than a day of preparations, mainly due to Toon-Force.
One of Dexter's first inventions is his underground lab, and the artificial intelligence, his computer, called Computress in Fusion Fall is a powerful unit capable of handling the running of Dexter's lab and runs on voice command. It has a distinct personality of its own and is female, as seen in Fusion Fall where it has an android female body.
Dexter is a genius but mostly he specializes in robotics, but has also been seen experimenting on genetics, creating a hair growth formulae, one that made him muscular, and even transformed Dee-Dee into a genius. On rare occasions, Dexter has been seen smashing his machines and robots using nothing more than his hands or feet, but this is most likely due to the cartoonic-forces. Dexter's inventions (robotic androids) often run rogue due to them being engineered with artificial intelligence and a capability to learn.
Dexter's strength, taking his inventions into account, is powerful enough to destroy Earth, Moon or an entire Solar System--if he puts his mind to it. Of course, given that his sister Dee-Dee does not interrupt him or destroy his lab.
