Robby Reed was a very intelligent boy. He lived with his grandparents in a small town called Littleville but spent a lot of time in his 'Lab Shack', where he did many experiments.
On one fairly normal day, he was experimenting in his lab until a couple of his friends came around and invited him to test out their new 'soap-box racers' on the valley ridge, so he decided to come along. Once they got there, the were interrupted by a big noise nearby and decided to find out more. The noise turned out to be a giant robotic machine attacking the Amour Chemical Company. The machine had a picture of Thor's Hammer, which was the Thunderbolt Gang's Logo (the local criminal organization with electric themed weapons). Just as the boys were running away, the ledge that they were standing on started to break, taking Robby with it. Narrowly missing the robot, Robby fell into an underground cave, where he saw a glow in the distance and decided to follow it. The light led to a peculiar dial with strange inscriptions on it. After studying it in his lab, Robby discovered that the dial's weird inscriptions spelt out the word HERO. Realising that he should dial H-E-R-O, he carefully did so and suddenly, he was no longer a little boy.
Soon Robbie embarked on his bizarre hero career, never really building a name for himself in the scheme of things due to the inconsistent heroes he turned into. His super hero career took a finite turn when battling the villain Shirkron of the Many Eyes.
Robbie was forced to dial the word S-P-L-I-T, instantly splitting him into two entities. One would be a creature of deepest evil, the Master, while the other the Wizard, of pure good. Shirkron would be defeated by the Wizard however losing the Dial to the machinations of the evil master, who dialed it into oblivion.
