Geoffrey Barron was in Markovia selling his new defense armour called the Technocrat 2000. He was eventually caught up in a war between the Outsiders and Roderick's army of Vampires and put on the armour to become the superhero technocrat. During this time, his bodyguard, Wylde, was turned into a half beast and half man. These 2 joined up with Geo-Force, Katana, Halo, Looker, and Faust to make up a new version of the Outsiders.
Technocrat was created by Mike W. Barr and in Outsiders #1
Technocrat was extremely close to Wylde, his former bodyguard. He was the only person who could calm down Wylde. He had a strong sense of Justice.
It was believed that Technocrat died during Infinite Crisis, getting caught in the blast, along with Looker, when Superboy-Prime killed Breach. Looker has since returned. When the Outsiders returned to Markovia under Geo-Force's leadership, Black Lightning runs into Technocrat. The two end up fighting and Black Lightning defeats him. When Black Lightning defeated him, the armor was a controlled armor. A larger Technocrat armor being controlled by Geoffrey Barron called himself Technocrat 5.0.
