Duncan Durant does not have a code name. It would do him little good anyway, he has been in the news media since before he was born. He is the son of wealthy technology magnate Duncan Durant Jr. owner and CEO of Durant Heavy industries. Founded by Duncan Durant the first, DHI is one of the world's leading manufacturing companies even before Duncan Jrís genius made it into one of the world's leading technology innovators as well. Growing up, Duncan III had every advantage and lived a carefully cultivated life to ensure that he would grow up to be a genius like his father and follow in his footsteps. The plan only half succeeded.
After seeing one of his inventions adapted for military use Duncan ran away to see what the world outside of his carefully crafted upbringing was like and getting a taste of how the other half lived, Duncan did his best to break free of his fatherís plans for him using his intelligence and his inventions to try and become a hero for the everyman but met with only limited success. His father used his resources and intelligence to attack Duncan and try to drive him back into the fold, and nearly succeeded on several occasions. When Duncan was contacted about the Authority it did not take him long to accept. His father only innovated to make money, but he was otherwise a pillar of the status quo. In order to break free of his father, the status quo would have to change.Abilities
Duncanís mobility enhancement suit is the invention that divided his family. It was originally designed to help with physical rehab and to dive those who had lost function in their legs the ability to walk again but Duncanís father quickly realized it could be used to make enhanced super soldiers. The irony of using the invention the way his father wanted to in order to fight him isnít lost on Duncan.
The omni-tool is a recent invention of Duncanís based on observing some of the technologies inside The Carrier. Taking the form of a large gauntlet with a keypad and display screen on his left hand it uses an advanced form of quantum destabilization in order to transmute matter and its primary purpose is to quickly fabricate any tool, device, or element that duncan might need at a moments notice. The same technology allows it to function as a quantum computer, allowing Duncan to interface with and control any machine complex enough run on electricity. He has yet to test it on any truly intelligent machine, and doubts its ability to override something with a will of its own.
