Cody Driscoll (Risk) was born and raised in the community of Cosmos, he lived alone with his mother in one horrible trailer park. The reason Cody lived alone with his mother was because his father had died when Cody was just six months old. However Cody's mother wasn't alone, after the death of Cody's father she was married two other times, making Cody's life even harder than what it looks like.
However it was the day he turned sixteen that his life got a lot more complicated, because like the rest of the teenagers that would soon become the Teen Titans of that generation he manifested for the first time his super-powers. The powers he manifested included enhanced strength and speed.
Cody Driscoll had always been a troublemaker and someone who didn't respect his authority, this would lead Cody to make an attempt to sneak into a facility known as N.O.R.A.D which was under the government control.
During this "adventure" Cody would be teleported with the rest of the teens that would become the newest Teen Titans and that had also manifested their powers the day they turned sixteen, into a ship of the H'San Natall, a de-aged Ray Palmer ( Atom) had been teleported there too, not because his powers were from the same origin, but because he was with Isaiah Crockett ( Joto/Hotspot)when he was teleported into the ship.
It was during this time that they also met Prysm, a girl who had been there her entire life.
After the mission was a success the teens would decide to stay together as a new superhero team, choosing to become the newest Teen Titans. This team got the funding it needed thanks to Loren Jupiter ( Mr. Jupiter) a former ally of the original Teen Titans. Cody would chose the codename Risk as his superhero identity.
Soon after creating the team, Prysm would start to have romantic feelings towards Risk, however the relation never happened because Risk was interested only in Argent.
The Teen Titans would meet and battle the villain known as Haze, who was actually the son of Loren Jupiter and sister of Lilith Clay ( Omen). During their confrontation Joto (Hotspot) was killed in action, or at least it was thought so. This made the team have a really hard time, Argent in an attempt to keep the team together started a membership drive in an attempt to gather new members, it was then when both Captain Marvel Jr. ( CM3) and Fringe joined the team.
A little time after the membership drive the team was attacked once again by the H'San Natall along with the Veil and it was during this time that the Teen Titans would discover that their former teammate and friend Joto (Hotspot) wasn't dead after all.
After they saved Joto (Hotspot) they would thanks to the help of Superman convince the H'San Natall to stop any other action against Earth and/or the Teen Titans. After the mission was a success Prysm and Fringe would decide to remain on space, it was before they left that Risk would reveal to Prysm that he loved her. The rest of the Teen Titans would decide to disband the team and each one of the members would go on their own way. Risk decided to return to live with his mother.
Risk along with everyone who had ever been a Teen Titan was captured by Cyberion ( Cyborg) when he came back to Earth in an attempt to repopulate the Technis world on the moon of Earth.
It was during this time that the Teen Titans and the Justice League of America would enter on a conflict because the League wanted to stop Cyberion (Cyborg) to stop any menace that could happen to Earth, while the Teen Titans wanted to save Cyberion (Cyborg) before.
When Infinite Crisis happened the survivors of the multiverse: Kal-L, Lois Lane of Earth-2, Alexander Luthor Jr. and Superboy Prime decided that the heroes of Earth-1 were a corrupted version of the heroes of Earth-2. This lead Superboy Prime to confront Connor Kent ( Superboy) which leaded to a battle between the young kryptonians. It was during this fight that Superboy (Connor Kent) called reinforcements using his Teen Titans communicator.
The call brought former members of the Teen Titans, along with the current incarnation of the team. The Doom Patrol and the Justice Society of America were brought into the battle too. While being attacked by the heroes, Superboy Prime killed Pantha by accident, which led to him killing more titans. Murdering Bushido and Wildebeest, Superboy Prime would rip Risk's arm off using only his great strength. Using her powers Argent prevented Risk from bleeding out, but the damage had been done. The attack by Superboy Prime left Risk scarred both physically and mentally.
Teen Titans East
After what happened to him during Infinite Crisis, Risk would become a criminal doing just a few little crimes that would be enough for him to live but small enough to don't be detected by the Teen Titans or any other superhero team.
Risk considered himself abandoned by the Teen Titans, this along with a menace and offer by Deathstroke would lead him to join the new titans team known as "T itans East", an team of young super villains leaded by Deathstroke to eliminate the Teen Titans and bring his two children Ravager (Rose Wilson) and a just resurrected Jericho back with him.
As a member of the Titans East, Risk was given Cyborg so that he could entertain himself. Risk decided to dismantle Cyborg and used him as a punching bag. Cyborg asked him that why would he be with Deathstroke when he was a former Teen Titans and ally of them, Risk revealed that it was because when he lost his arm they didn't act as if one of their own was on a tragedy. Cyborg then offered Risk to make one new arm for him, however he rejected saying that he only needs his anger to hold onto.
The Titans East had beaten the Teen Titans, however Raven (the only member that had escaped) brought reinforcements to defeat the Titans East team. The reinforcement team consisted of Nightwing, Donna Troy, Beast Boy and Bart Allen now as the Flash.
With the help of their reinforcements and thanks to the fact that both Batgirl (Cassandra Cain) and Duela Dent left Deathstroke's team to ally the Teen Titans, Deathstroke's team was easily defeated. However Deathstroke still gave fight to all of the Teen Titans using their numbers against them, saved by Inertia in the last seconds the Titans East team disbanded
Prime wants more
When the war between the Sinestro Corps and the Green Lantern Corps reached Earth, Superman Prime attacked several heroes between them the Justice League, the Justice Society, the Teen Titans, The Outsiders and others.
Risk also made a temporal alliance with the heroes because he wanted to make Superman Prime pay for what he had done to him by taking his arm. However things didn't go as Risk expected and Superman Prime ripped Risk's second arm.
Powers & Weapons
Risk is stronger and faster than the average human, and his senses are more acute. His strength, speed and senses are multiplied about six times the average human. He is hyper everything. The adrenaline rushing through his body makes him take a greater Risk each time.
