Michael Holt is the second DC Comics superhero to take on the name Mr. Terrific. Other than his T-Spheres that make him invisible to technology, Mr. Terrific lacks any superhero strength or ability. He greatly excels in intelligence being compared to scientists like Einstein. Ever since he was a young boy, he has had a knack for advanced scientific studies and later went on to achieve 14 advanced Ph.Ds.
When his brother, wife, and unborn child died, Michael contemplated committing suicide, but was approached by the Spirit of the God’s Spectre who told him about the previous Mr. Terrific and decided to continue his legacy. Even though he doesn’t possess any superhero abilities, he is a genius and has skills in gymnastics, martial arts, and tactical analysis. He also utilizes his T-Spheres and T-Mask that are advanced tools most humans couldn’t have created. He uses his unique skill set to protect those in need and to seek justice for those who deserve it.
