AboutThey Call Me...Mister Terrific!! At An Early age I displayed talents That Other children My Age Could Never comprehend!At a young age, I showed remarkable intelligence, reading and assimilating the works of Bohr, Einstein, Planck, and Feynman, the pantheon of theoretical physics, at the age of six. I studied advanced science, space, and time "while other children struggled through Sesame Street".I display A natural aptitude for having natural aptitudes.
I am a Polymath! I have 14 Ph.D's (two in Engineering and Physics -- including doctorates and masters degrees in Law, Psychology, Chemistry, Political science, and Mathematics). I am a self-made multi-millionaire, with a high tech firm called Cyberwear(Which I sold To Wayne tech) I am also a Gold medal winning Olympic Decathelete! I am also An Atheist.I believe There is a Scientific and Rational Explanation for Everything.I am Invisible to all forms of electronic detection.I am a black belt in 6 different martial arts disciplines.I Have Genius level intellect, and I Am The Third Smartest Man In the DC Universe!
Alter ego: Michael Holt
Team affiliations: Justice Society of America
Notable aliases: White King, White King's Bishop
Abilities: Genius level intellect, Olympic-level Athlete. Cannot be detected by modern technology. Extensive nanotechnology in mask and costume for a variety of sensory, communication and database retrieval functions. T-Spheres that function as a computer, holographic projection unit, projectile weapons and numerous other uses.Photographic Memory/Reflexes: Mr. Terrific can copy all moves and Fighting or Agility based talents from people he has observed .He has an aptitude for picking up new skill after a quick study. If he has a super-power, it is to learn things quickly and completely
In combat, he can automatically block attacks by opponents He has studied.
Notable Talents: Leadership, Electronics, Repair/Tinkering, Streetwise, Business/Finance, Medicine, Detective/Espionage, Thief
Multilingual: Holt is also multilingual, though the extent of this hasn't been revealed. He has been shown to speak the language of the nation of Kahndaq. Given Holt's propensity for learning, it likely that he speaks several other languages as well.
Master Martial Artist: He is a black belt in 6 different martial arts disciplines.
T-Spheres: He uses robotic information gathering drones called his “T- Spheres” that shoot Powerful electrical blasts,strike as flying projectile weapons,that strike with significant force,explode on command,Can project holograms,project laser grids,Record Data,serve as cameras, link with outside data networks and orbital satellites, open electronic locks,and fly around under his control. They can even carry him aloft,allow him to fly by bearing his weigh. The controls are in his mask and ear pieces. Subtle movements of his face tell the T-Spheres what to do. He has used his inventive genius to become invisible and undetectable by any machine or technology. This ability is linked to the nanotechnology in his T mask. They respond to his mental and vocal commands.
T-Mask: He is invisible to all forms of electronic detection. This ability is tied to nanotechnology woven into his specially designed "T-Mask" (which is molecularly bonded to his face and can disappear at will) and costume. Mr. Terrific was apparently the only super-hero whom the OMACs could not detect. His mask also protects his face from chemicals and relays mental commands to his T-Spheres by detecting the subtle movements on his face. The mask works in conjunction with an ear piece to acts as a communications system. Through his mask, Holt can change instantaneously into costume and back again.
Holt's mask also doubles as a encephalic broadcaster, picking up aggregate thought-waves, allowing him to communicate with his T-Spheres and even project a speaking hologram of himself, even if he is injured or too weak to speak.
