Biography

Pre-Crisis

T. O. Morrow

Post-Crisis

Following the Crisis of the Infinite Earths, a new version of reality was created with a different history of events. Tomek Ovadya Morah was a male human born in the modern age to a family from Nasielsk that was located outside Warsaw. (Wonder Woman v3 #34) He was the son of Tamara Morrow and Francis Xavier Morrow who named their child Thomas Oscar Morrow after visiting the World Fair with them being dazzled by the view of the year 2000. They groomed their child with a love of science fiction with this instilling in Thomas a desire to become a scientist though his father died in a jet pack accident leaving his mother to raise him all alone. By 1941, he was a child who wanted to become a hero through the use of science. (DC 2000 v1 #1)

When the Euro came online, Morrow began to set up an operation overseas and looked to developing weapons to aid him. This saw him embark on an ambition project of creating robots that embodied each of the different elemental forces of water, air, fire and earth. (Red Tornado v2 #1)

Morrow was called by the Rogues who requested his aid in giving them an advantage against the Flash after he had badly wounded Captain Boomerang. The scientist revealed he had stolen a device called the Humanifold from the future and required a test subject to give them the power to defeat the speedster. Anthony Gambi volunteered and was bonded to the machine that replicated the technology of the Rogues giving him a composite power of all their weapons as he took the name Replicant. (Flash Secret Files and Origins v1 #2)

After forming an alliance with Professor Ivo, the pair decided on creating the perfect android that would aid them in destroying the Justice League. Ivo crafted the body whilst Morrow developed the mind where they created Tomorrow Woman who was so life-like that not even superheroes could tell that she was an artificial being. She was programmed to gain the trust of the Justice League so that she would join their ranks and then detonate an electromagnetic bomb that would destroy the brains of anyone around her. However, Tomorrow Woman outgrew her programming and intended to become a hero where she turned against her creators and sacrificed herself rather than complete her objective. (JLA v1 #5)

At some point, Morrow was responsible for kidnapping the granddaughter of Ma Hunkel though Maxine Hunkel was later rescued. Unknown to anyone at the time, she was given superpowers as a result of the incident where she could control wind. (Justice Society of America v3 #1)

Barbara Minerva chose T. O. Morrow to head the Secret Society of Super-Villains Science Division where he was tasked with creating a Justice League killer with this being Morrow's idea. This led to the creation of Genocide but the creation so horrified him that he begged for it to be destroyed. However, Minerva refused and instead had the living weapon being deployed on the field for use against Wonder Woman. (Wonder Woman v3 #26)

He was once again imprisoned for attempting to start a war between two parallel worlds with him detained at the Haven facility. Morrow was not allowed access to a computer due to fears he could trigger a Machine War I. Whilst there, he kept aware of news developments where he noted a pattern in the disappearance of various mad scientists from the world. (52 v1 #2)

Morrow later willingly volunteer information to Nemesis and Wonder Woman regarding Genocide still being alive as he could not be part of anything as vile as the artificial golem. He said that he cooperated for two reasons as one was because Diana was always kind to him and the second was he wanted her to destroy the aberration that was Genocide. (Wonder Woman v3 #34)

Post-Flashpoint

Following the Flashpoint, a new version of reality was created with a different history of events. He was a scientist who studied at Harvard University where he developed an interest in Emerging Technologies. At some point, he worked alongside Dr. Will Magnus on time travel research but stopped after a lab accident involving FTL technology which caused his colleague to resign. After his recovery, Morrow was recruited by Silas Stone to join S.T.A.R. Labs Red Room located in Detroit where he came to be the Project Manager by 31 years of age. (Justice League v2 #4)
