Born developmentally disabled, Timothy Wilkerson’s problems were attributed to the man-monster known as the Hulk when he rampaged through a Canadian facility where Timothy’s parents were visiting. His mother claimed that Timothy suffered a massive stroke while in the womb due to this encounter, but a visit from General John Ryker ensured Mr. and Mrs. Wilkerson that he could make all of Timothy’s problems disappear. Splicing Timothy’s DNA with that of the Hulk’s nemesis, the Leader, gave birth to the individual now known as Prodigy. Later it was discovered that his birth defects were not caused by a Hulk encounter, but rather a heroin addiction his mother suffered from while she was pregnant.
