Current (Martin Richards) is a mutant and scientist, born in the Bronx. He was a genius as a child, and his parents were very receptive of this. He came to Harvard Physics Department as a junior at the age of 16. He excelled and gained his P.hd less than a year later. At this time, Harvard was attacked by the Friends of Humanity, as the university was home to many mutants, Martin being one of them. His ability to control electricity manifested when he killed a large majority of Friends in order to protect his brother, by sending fatal EMPs through their weapons. He left the university and is currently living in Mexico, where he moved after the Mutant Revolution.
