Solving the world's problems isn't something you can tackle on a large scale. Some may even consider it impossible. But while you might not be able to solve the world's problems, you can solve the problems of the people—even if it's just one at a time. At least, that’s how Michael Holt sees it, and using his genius-level intellect, dedication and perfectionism, he plans on doing exactly that as the heroic Mr. Terrific.
Growing up in a poor family, Michael Holt strived toward excellence—academically, athletically and financially. His off-the-scales intelligence coupled with his hard work and determination led to him receiving multiple PhDs in various fields, founding one of the world's leading tech firms and becoming an Olympic gold medalist to boot. However, his commitment and drive toward perfection left him aloof and closed off from everyone but his wife. When a tragic car accident took her life, Holt found a new goal: to follow in the footsteps of his humanitarian spouse and dedicate his life to helping others and not just himself.
He joined the Justice Society of America and used his vast financial and technological resources to create the T-Sphere to aid him in his quest. These flying robot spheres respond to Holt's vocal commands and serve a multitude of functions, from passive uses like holographic projection and communication to weaponized usage through explosives and electrical charges.
However, Mr. Terrific's true strength comes from his own personal drive to overcome any obstacle and solve any problem. Unfortunately, this determination can also sometimes lead to him shutting out the rest of the world and other people until the problem is solved. Yet despite this, Holt remains dedicated to keeping the vow he made to his late wife—to solve everyone's problems.
