The Folded Man wiki last edited by pikahyper on 07/29/15 01:42PM View full history


Edwin Gauss was a physics student at M.I.T. looking to definitively prove Albert Einstein's Unified field theory. After feverish effort, which included the theft of software from electronics billionaire Norman Bridges, Gauss invents a method of interdimensional travel. He developed an exoskeleton which allows his physical form to move across at least four dimensions.

Bridges, who considers the exoskeleton Gauss developed (using Bridges' software) to be his own property, pursues Gauss to claim the technology for himself. Gauss reinvents himself as a costumed criminal named "the Folded Man". His new criminal career brings him into conflict with Wally West , the third Flash, although he has so far escaped capture.

In Infinite Crisis, Folded Man becomes a member of the Secret Society of Super Villains.

DcNU Folded Man (1st Appearance)

Folded Man is one of the escapees shown following the events after Captain Cold broke free and escaped Iron Heights. Iris West is cornered by Folded Man, alongside fellow inmates Girder and Tar Pit. They plan to take her hostage as "insurance", however Barry Allen (as the current Flash) speeds in and saves the day.

One notable difference in Folded Man's design is that his grey exoskeleton seems stitched into his actual flesh, instead of being a removable costume.
