For a yet unrevealed reason, a scientist named Gregory Knox cloned the famed inventor Thomas Edison. Unfortunately, Edison's DNA sample was contaminated by Knox's pet cockatiel during the synthesis.
Edison set up shop in a decommissioned factory just outside of Bayonne in New Jersey's Hudson County, started using the nom de guerre The Inventor, and began experimenting in alternative power sources and bioengineering. With help from Knox, the Inventor also began recruiting disenchanted youths to voluntarily be part of his experiment in using the human body as a living battery.
Inventor later perished in battle against Ms. Marvel.
