Stretch was originally one of Alex Wilder's
friends who played a Marvel heroes based M.M.O.R.P.G. with Hunter
, and Oscar
where Stretch often played as different female heroes. He often irritated his friends (especially Alex) by using characters outside of the Avengers
and portraying them out of character. For instance, when playing as the Invisible Woman
he would have her speak seductively, and had the White Queen
appear purely because he thought her latest skimpy outfit was provocative. Although they had never met in person he did not believe that Alex was a minor, thinking he had been joking.
In person Stretch was over-weight, with short spiky hair and a goatee beard. He lived with his Grandma who would get upset if he is gone away for too long, but he employes nurses to care for her in his absence.
When Hunter, Lotus, Oscar and Stretch had begun to meet in person on a regular basis. They wondered why Alex had suddenly disappeared, and Hunter revealed he had hacked into Alex's account and discovered a journal. Reading Alex's warped point of view, the four friends believed that Alex's parents were super heroes and set out to help resurrect their friend using the black magic spells within The Abstract. However, instead of saving the life of Alex Wilder, they brought forth a time-displaced Geoffrey Wilder
from 1985; a younger version of Alex's father before Alex had even been conceived.
Wilder gave the young friends a portion of the powers that their predecessors had possessed, and created a new incarnation of his team; The Pride
. Stretch wielded a sword forged from the same metallic substance which dampened Karolina Dean's
alien powers as a child. He aided Wilder in kidnapping Molly Hayes
, believing that they were liberating her, but gave her a chance to speak & breathe without her gag. Although the new Pride had caused chaos among the runaways
, Stretch and his friends were ultimately disabled and rebuked by Victor Mancha
Later, when it was revealed that they had been manipulated by Wilder and aided in his attempts to murder Nico Minoru
, and therefore by proxy had aided in the murder of Gertude Yorkes
. The new Pride disbanded, and Stretch had been committed to an insane asylum.
