Invisible Kid (rebooted version) in action

Invisible Kid

Lyle Norg) (Post-Reboot


Background

  • Real Name: Lyle Norg
  • Known Relatives: None
  • Base Of Operations: Metropolis, Earth
  • Group Affiliation: LSH
  • Home Planet: Earth


Powers and Abilities

Lyle is a super-genius. While not as smart as Brainiac 5, he is more imaginative, which helps him find practical uses for his inventions. Using the invisibility serum he created, he can bend light around his body, making himself undetectable to his enemies.


History

Lyle Norg is a boy genius, specializing in the field of biochemistry, who created a serum that changed his body to allow it to turn invisible. Using these talents, he performed some espionage for the government of Earth, which in turn compensated him handsomely. When the Legion of Super-Heroes was formed, he was tapped to represent Earth.

Lyle, code-named Invisible Kid, was an asset to the Legion from the beginning, more due to his ability to speak Durlan (thus providing the Legion’s only communication with Chameleon) and his imaginative scientific genius, which saved the Legion on Planet Hell and invented the Legion’s flight rings, than to his ability to turn invisible.

He began to grow disillusioned with Cosmic Boy’s Legion leadership when he found himself and other useful, but less battle-strong members being overlooked for missions, and he formed the Legion Espionage Squad to make use of his own stealthy talents as well as those of Chameleon, Triad, Shrinking Violet and, while she was alive, Apparition.

Eventually, due to suspicions about President Chu of the United Planets, Cosmic Boy asked him to do just this, which he had already done on his own, and to start investigating the president herself. Lyle did this, and through these efforts, it was revealed that she had started the Braal-Titan war and assembled the Fatal Five, revelations that led to her undoing.

His strong will, intelligence and ability to lead the espionage squad led to his election as leader of the Legion when Cosmic Boy and six others were stranded in the twentieth century, and he was allowed by Cosmic Boy to continue in that capacity after their return. Shortly afterward, though, something came up which led him to resign the post and turn it over to deputy leader Saturn Girl.


Description

Lyle is non-descript (which serves him well). He has brown hair, and wears a costume that is completely black with a white “i” on the front.


Personality

Lyle is extremely friendly and personable. He keeps his secrets, but it doesn’t show : he’s so friendly no one thinks he’s hiding anything.
