Morris had a troubled childhood. His father was in the navy, so he wasn't around for most of his childhood. His mother was an alcoholic and Morris had to take care of her when she was hung over. He had gotten use to the routine and he almost dropped out of school when she fell into a coma. When he got word that his father had died, Morris nearly considered killing himself, but he decided he could turn his life around.
Near Death Experience
As a teenager, Morris became a reckless driver. One day, during a police chase Morris got in the way and one of the cop car accidentally slammed into his, knocking his car into the lake in Central Park. His seat belt was jammed and he could not get out. He thought it was the end, but for some reason, he felt at peace in the water. However, one of the cops dove down and saved him.
After learning he didn't graduate High School, Morris stormed out of his own home and enlisted himself in the navy. He discovered he didn't have big shoes to fill as several people hated his father. However, he became tough as nails and was given the nicknames "Trouble" and "Hydro Man" because of his addiction to the water. He didn't care what others said though, as long as he was at sea, he was fine.
One day, they were visited by some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who wanted to create an army of superheroes and Morris volunteered for the job. He was injected with a serum that would allow him to survive under water, but it instead turned him into a being of living water. He went insane and stormed out of the base, attempting to pull himself together, Morris fell into the ocean, seemingly dissolving.
