History: Everett Thomas grew up as a straight-A student in St. Louis before his mutant power emerged. After his power manifested, the Phalanx entity known as Harvest attempted to capture Everett to experiment on him through the process of the assimilation of mutants. Everett was rescued by Banshee, the White Queen, Jubilee, and Sabretooth, and assisted them in the rescue of the mutants Husk, M, Skin, and Blink from Harvest in California.

Soon after the encounter with Harvest, Everett enrolled at the newly reopened Massachusetts Academy, where he joined the mutant team Generation X, and encountered numerous adversaries, including the villain known as Emplate.

When the team encountered Emplate the second time, Everett, now known as Synch, was turned by Emplate into a creature like him that feeds on the bone marrow of mutants for survival. Emplate teleported Everett to St. Louis, where he attempted to turn his family into creatures like himself and Emplate. He was rescued by a combination of his own reluctance to bring harm to people he knows, and the assistance of the Generation X members Husk, M, and Jubilee. Synch is currently free of Emplate's influence, but the long-term effects of that influence, if any still exist, remain to be seen.

Strength level: Synch possesses the normal human strength of a man his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise. He is capable of possessing superhuman strength if he uses his power to "synch" with another being who possesses superhuman strength.

Known superhuman powers: Synch is a mutant who possesses an aura, which allows him to be "in synch" with other super humans in his immediate vicinity, thereby gaining any powers they might possess. The powers Synch "synchs" will fade some time after the superhuman he is "in synch" with leaves his vicinity. It has been theorized that, with practice, Synch will be able to retain powers he has acquired permanently.

Synch is also able to track other mutants by allowing his aura to lock on to the mutant's bio-signature, and the aura will extend in the general direction in which the mutant is located.

When Synch uses his powers, a multi-colored aura appears around his body. The aura is caused by the energies he is absorbing splitting the ambient light around him, which causes the described effect.
