Young Bradley Edward Stinier was born on October 20th, 1964 to Michael and Michelle Stinier in Berwyn, a small suburb of Chicago, Illinois. An only child, Brad was spoiled by his parents, who threw at him as many toys as possible. This launched Brad's thirst for knowledge. Brad was a constant reader who devoured books on physics and chemistry on a regular basis. Brad graduated as valedictorian from both his elementary school (District 98 of North Berwyn) and his High School (J. Sterling Morris High School in West Berwyn). Afterwards, Brad began his college carreer at the University of Kansas studying cellular biology.

   Brad received his first in what would be many degrees in 1986, when he graduated second in his class from U of Kansas with a BS in Cellular Biology and a minor in Biochemistry. After joining the ABMG (the American Board of Medical Genetics), Brad accepted the position as Biochemist working for AeroTek Scientific in Okemos, Michigan. Brad only worked there for three months before he longed to once again fulfill his thrist for knowledge. In September 1986 Brad enrolled in Carnegie Melon for Computer Engineering. In 1989, Brad graduated Magna Cum Laude from Carnegie Melon with a BS in Computer Science. Brad was invited to do his post-doctoral work at Cornell by an old U of Kansas professor of his named Dr. Howard Evans, now Professor Emeritus of Biomedical Sciences at Cornell. Brad accepted and moved to Ithica, NY and began his post-doctoral work.

   Brad worked for the next five years under Dr. Evans, doing research in tracking and categorizing neural impulses transmitted from and received by the brain. Brad gained academic fame by designing a computer algorithm capable of simulating neural response patterns. In 1992, Brad was given the Distinguished Service Award from the Biophysical Society and the Biological Physics Prize from the American Physics Society for his advances in neural mapping. In 1993, Brad and Dr. Evans were nominated for a Nobel Prize in Physics for their theorectical work in relating the recording and decoding of neural transmissions, but lost out to French physicist Pierre Gilles De-Gennes. In 1994, Brad finally received his Masters Degree from Cornell and graduated summa cum laude and third in his class from the prestigeous university.

   After graduation, Brad received many job offers, but ended up accepting the job of chief scientist for Tech Inc., a small splinter company of 3I Industries. After working there for a year, Brad felt stymied in his current position. Brad left Tech Inc. for the illustrious Intellidyne Inc., which offered him twice the salary he made at Tech Inc. In October of 1995, Brad left his apartment in San Diego, California and relocated to Boulder, Colorado to work for Intellidyne under the title of Chief Special Projects Engineer.

   Most of Brad's work for the next five years was classified top secret by Intellidyne. As the years went on, Brad began to lose touch with most of his academic colleagues as he became more driven at work. Brad's last academic appearance was at the ASHG (American Society of Human Genetics) 1998 Membership Meeting in nearby Denver.

   In early 2000, Brad Stinier was apparently kidnapped by a group of rogue superhuman agents known as the Honor Society. Nicholas Hughes, the president of Intellidyne, contacted longtime friend Stephen Hawking and enlisted the aide of the superhero team formed by Hawking called the Phoenix Company. The Phoenix Company investigated the break-in, caught the Honor Society when they returned to the scene of the crime, but could find no trace of Stinier. The search for Stinier led them all over the country, from Intellidyne HQ and Stinier's apartment in Boulder to Stinier's parents' house in Berwyn to the 3I headquarters in both Las Vegas and Seattle. While at the 3I HQ in Seattle, a battle erupted between the team, Squad "O" (agents of Vole Industries, a competitor of both Intellidyne and 3I), Bruiser & Cruiser (supervillains for hire working for 3I) and 3I troops. In the midst of the battle, Brad Stinier appeared from the front of the 3I building and shot himself point-blank in the head.

   During the previous search, the Phoenix COmpany has discovered that Stinier has developed a cyber-chip designed to be implanted directly into the brain. Once there, the chip would be able to increase the brain's ability to process mathematics, transmit neural impulses, and many increase other of the brain's higher processes. After the climatic shooting, the Phoenix Company retrieved the body, but soon found that the body was in fact a hologram generated by a highly-sophisticated device. The Phoenix Company believed that Stinier had implanted the chip in his own brain, then designed a way out of his current predicament.

   As of this writing, Brad Stinier has been missing for over a month and still no trace has been found of him. However, when he does resurface, who knows what fabulous devices he may have developed or scientific strides he may have accomplished with the use of his neural chip.
