The Idiot was created when a man named Dr. Crosby sought to cure four men with damaged minds by telepathically linking them together with the use of a hallucinogenic Amazonian plant known as the Idiot Root. It was his belief that the four men could together create a mental world of their own, in which they could then gradually heal their minds. The experiment proved to have an entirely unforeseen side effect however. Dr. Crosby came to discover that the subconscious minds of the four men had somehow merged and created a fifth personality, a demented mental entity that came to call itself "The Idiot."
As a child, Will Evans' family was shot dead by drug dealers from stray bullets coming the room next-door. Evans grew up to e a violent child, eventually becoming muscle-for-hire and an amateur assassin until he was arrested. In jail he met Floyd Lawton, Jr. who advised Evans on assassinations and became someone for Evans to succeed.
After his release Evans joined the Red Market and trained with them until he wanted to leave, several deaths later Evans was picked up by Amanda Waller to join the Task Force X.
His first mission would be to assist Deadshot in kidnapping the daughter of a cartel boss but Lawton abandoned the mission leaving Evans to improvise.
With Lawton AWOL, Evans completed the mission and was sent after his supposed partner. Inside the Lawton estate Floyd, Jr. is coerced out by Harley Quinn but Evans shoots him repeatedly. As Lawton recovers, Evans reveals that it was his history that Floyd had stolen and, while Lawton lay in recovery, Evans was to adopt the moniker of Deadshot.
