Okay, so he's working for a scientist, but when the scientist tells him to deliver his new invention...
Yes, he first shirks his duty, blows off work to watch a game and then moronically drinks the serum that he was supposed to be delivering thinking it was a soda!
This would be like if Spider-Man gained superpowers by letting the burglar get by him at the TV studio!
Anyhow, he tried out for the Legion and they rejected him. He didn't let it get him down, though, and he then stopped a bad guy who had paralyzed the other Legionnaires and he proved himself worthy of a spot on the team!
His good nature has served him well over the years as he has been one of the most beloved members of the team to the other Legionnaires, as he is such a nice guy. He ended up getting married to fellow Legionnaire, Duo Damsel!
Happy birthday to my pal, Mark, who went by the name "Bouncing Boy" on the CBR forums! I thought it would be nice to do this as a sort of tribute to Mark.
