Powers: Mark has the strength and ability of a regular man with his size and build. All of his powers come from the high-tech containment suit that all humans need to wear in order to survive in the far future.
Special Equipment: The Kid wears body armor/containment suit that enables him to fly and fire extremely powerful energy blasts. The armor can give Mark clean air for up to six hours in an airless environment and it purifies all other air that goes to him. The armor can seal itself, allowing Mark to travel in space or under water. It has a force field that protects him. The armor picks up radio signals and increases his strength tenfold. The armor also rejuvenates him and keeps him energetic and young looking. The armor can change color and alter its look with proper programming.

HISTORY:

In the distant future, specifically 6419, the world was beginning to end due to both global pollution and alien invasions. A young man named Mark Osborn decided to break the law, seeing as how it would not really affect anyone, and commandeered a time-machine. He programmed in his destination, the 1970s, which he had memorized huge amounts of trivia and he hoped to use his knowledge to earn a fortune. Unfortunately, the time machine's digital readout had a couple of burned out lights and he ended up arriving in the 1990s instead, an era he knew next to nothing about.

Mark found himself aiding the city of Detroit’s premiere superhero, Kill-Cat, by utilizing his amour, a necessity in the future to survive. A villain named the Cement Man is defeated for the local authorities to take away, leaving Kill-Cat to offer his newfound ally the opportunity to become his partner, the Kid Avenger. The bungling team of the Deadly Duo was formed and they somehow managed to defeat a number of supervillains; the Annihilators, Gator and ManEater, Laff-A-Lot, Radiator, Fusion and Neutron Bob.

After a couple of years fighting crime in Detroit, the Deadly Duo was drafted in help repel a Martian invasion. They teamed with Liberty & Justice in infiltrating the aliens’ stronghold in Detroit. The group were captured but later escaped, sadly too late to prevent the repeated rape of Liberty at the hands of their captors.

When Dragon was putting together the Special Operations Strikeforce, the Kid Avenger was one of those heroes that were recruited. He served the team for a couple of years before his incompetence eventually prompted Rock to fire him. Kill-Cat had been desperate to join the S.O.S. but with his partner available once more, the Deadly Duo were reborn. The Deadly Duo were some of the heroes that agreed to aid Dragon in his failed attempt to prevent the Gods from claiming Atlantis as their new home. This mission led to a friendship between the Duo and their allies, Vanguard and Brute Force.

Detroit was largely untouched during the reign of CyberFace and the Deadly Duo remained heroes of the city. When Dragon found himself in the city, he ended up aiding Neutron Bob in defeating the Deadly Duo and robbing a bank to help finance a rebellion. The Deadly Duo had happily served the law even though it was CyberFace making the rules, later causing the pair some embarrassment.

The Deadly Duo took part in numerous superhero gatherings such as when an army of heroes took on the Vicious Circle to rescue Angel Dragon, and when Billy Berman had stolen the Mighty Man abilities. They were also some of those that Mister Glum took as his super-powered slaves when he used the God Gun to rule Earth.

When Emperor Kurr raided a Bio-Tech laboratory to steal chemicals, Neutron Bob had been dispatched to deal with him as part of his bail conditions. The Deadly Duo arrived on the scene and assumed that Bob was the villain. They aided Kurr in defeating the reformed villain but soon realised the error of their ways when Neutron Bob was disembowelled by Kurr before he teleported away with his stolen goods.

Kill-Cat and Kid Avenger later try to defeat Malcolm Dragon who they think is an imposter for Dragon. They recruit Neutron Bob, and it soon leads to a out of contol fight. Dart II also becomes part of the brawl and is knocked out where Kill-Cat takes her away to "save" her, but is later knocked out by Dart when she awakes.
