|After having a combination of synthetic implants and an injection of his "Midas Touch" Serum Alexander Dutch gained super human agility and reflexes, peak human strength, and the ability to generate immense amounts of energy via his Nervous System in an unforeseen chemical reaction between his own nervous system, his synthetic implants, and the "Midas Touch" Serum. Alexander has also mastered the ability to, as he calls it, Dimensionally Shift. By releasing an immense amount of energy he can displace himself in the plane of space and time and literally shift to a new location.|

Alexander Dutch was what many would call a child genius, forgoing most of primary school in his earlier years and entering college at the young age of 14. In only six years, Dutch would do what few twice his age could do and earn his PHD in Chemical Engineering; having written his thesis on the extremely popular subject of creating a super human through the use of a chemical formula. The reason why his serum was so revolutionary was not only did it theoretically work, but it was able to be mass-produced, effectively eliminating the need for Supers in Paragon and allowing any government or privately owned security force to do that same job much more effectively.
This formula, which he had patented as the "Midas Touch" Serum. Almost immediately upon submitting the patent for his serum he was contracted by the Romanov Foundation, a philanthropic conglomeration of the worlds elites seeking to invest in the worlds biggest technological advancements. However, upon beginning work at the Romanov Foundation's Laboratories in Atlas Park Alexander found that his "Midas Touch" Serum did not impart enhanced abilities in the mice he tested it on. In fact it would overload their nervous systems effectively killing them. Alexander did all he could to alter the serum to prevent the damage caused to the nervous system but to no avail. Once the Romanov Foundation realized that they were not going to turn a profit on Alexander's Serum they terminated his contract immediately.
However, Alexander refused to give up. In his own personal lab he began work on alternative methods to allow his "Midas Touch" Serum to work. After months of testing he came to the conclusion that he would have to enhance the nervous system before injecting the serum so that the body could handle the shock that the Serum seemed to give. Since he knew that he couldn't create synthetic implants small enough for mice he concluded that he would have to test this theory on himself. Alexander would have a close friend of his surgically implant several implants at the base of his brain, and at various points in his body, enhancing the amount of electricity his nervous system could handle. After he had healed up from the surgery and confirmed that the implants were in fact functional he injected himself with the serum.
Injecting the Serum had knocked him out but when he woke up he gradually found that the serum was successful. After having a combination of synthetic implants and an injection of his "Midas Touch" Serum Alexander Dutch gained super human agility and reflexes, peak human strength, and the ability to generate immense amounts of energy via his Nervous System in an unforeseen chemical reaction between his own nervous system, his synthetic implants, and the "Midas Touch" Serum. Alexander has also mastered the ability to, as he calls it, Dimensionally Shift. By releasing an immense amount of energy he can displace himself in the plane of space and time and literally shift to a new location.
Once he had a reasonable mastery of his abilities Alexander did what any idyllic young man would do, he became a full time super hero; opting not to use an alias, but to fight crime with his real name. However the publicity that came with his new career would attract jealous eyes, namely those of his former employers, The Romanov Foundation.
