Teddy was born with an active metagene, similar to the X-Gene, but not quite the same. His parents, both scientists for the CIA, experimenting on him when he was a baby. What they found was quite frightening, he had the genetic potential to bring on a plague that could wipe out humanity. His parents decided they could not love a child that dangerous, so they donated him to Area 51.
After being put in Area 51, he was tested by a team of scientists for most of his life. His "potential" was eventually turned into actual powers. They discovered that his true form was green, plated skin. They were also able to discover he could fly, shape shift, and he has super strength. When he was not being tested, Teddy was forced to practice his powers on his own, which he despised.
When Teddy was sixteen, he decided he'd had enough. He attempted to escape, but his shock collar was activated. He ripped it off and took out everyone who got in his way. He broke out of Area 51 and he managed to remember where his parents live. He arrived and attempted to kill both of them, but the mind in the back of his head convinced him that they're not worth it. He left them with a demolished house and said he would make his own life. He checked into an apartment in New York, attempting to start completely over.
When the future daughter of Mister Fantastic and Invisible Woman, Ms. Fantastic, came to the past in order to save the world from Kang the Conqueror, Teddy was one of the metahumans she contacted. He reluctantly agreed to her offer and joined her team of teen superheroes, however, he refused to adopt a code name. After a few days with them, he began having feelings for fellow member, Gravity.
