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.
Height:5 ft. 11 in.
Weight: 165 lbs.
Hair: Black, shaved bald
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.
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.
