When Andrew was younger, he had a chance encounter with Matt at a local coffee shop. After witnessing Matt's mutant power to flatten and stretch himself, Andrew convinced Matt to join his company of superhero impersonators. Impersonating Mister Fantastic, Matt performed at birthday parties for supervillains and the children of C.E.O.s. Matt eventually got fed up with pretending to be a superhero and wanted to actually be a superhero. Matt suggested taking on the personas of "Dr. Val Ventura/Flatman" and wanted Andrew to be his sidekick, the Paperboy. Although Andrew had shown some romantic interest in Matt, he didn't believe he could succeed as a superhero and the two parted ways.[1]
