    Origin Story

    Not much about about Tommy Baker's past except that he is the younger brother of college whiz kid Biff Baker. Both brothers along with astronaut Craig Crandall and physicist Jeannie Morrow were selected by the government in a prototype moon rocket to investigate a mysterious asteroid passed close to earth on its million year orbit. Once they landed onto the asteroid, they found a crater with an alien stairway winding down towards four gigantic alien statutes believe to be remnants of a long-dead race whose purpose was beyond their understanding. The power that was guarded by the statutes was in fact alive, and the astronauts stepped upon the decorated tiles beneath the statues the air was filled with tingling rays of colored light and completely changed their physical bodies with fantastic abilities. They emerged as Crystalman, The Neon Queen, The Planet, and Kid Dynamo and called themselves Mystery Incorporated

    Mystery Incorporated

    One day, Mystery Incorporated was finish testing their new security systems in their underground headquarters, The Mystery Mile, when all of a sudden they were infiltrated by a mysterious intruder who somehow evaded their defenses undetected. At first he disappeared after he battled with Neon Queen, but then he managed to reappear again moments after his encounter. This time he managed to use Mystery Incorporated's defenses against them. The intruder managed to capture Kid Dynamo with a special trick arrow and escaped with his prisoner through the Maybe Machine.

    The Tomorrow Syndicate

    Kid Dynamo, still in the contained confines of his captor, emerges from the other side of the Maybe Machine. He sees the world of his possible future, 1993. He takes a quick glimpse of his surroundings not knowing he's in the secret headquarters of Youngblood and that his captor was the government sponsored superhero Shaft.

    Powers & Abilities

    Kid Dynamo is able to turn his body into pure electrical energy on command and back. In addition, Kid Dynamo can also fly and produce energy blasts.

    Kid Dynamo's only known weakness is water, which would short circuit his electrical powers, render him unconscious and revert back to his solid human form.

    Creative Concept

    Kid Dynamo was created by Alan Moore and Rick Veitch. Kid Dynamo is an homage to the Fantastic Four's Human Torch of Marvel Comics.
