David Alleyne was raised by his father and mother with his younger sister, Kim, in their home in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. Growing up, David was always bright and intelligent, but when his mutant powers activated, the answers just started coming to him. He quickly realized he was mutant with the ability to telepathically absorb the knowledge and skills of anyone nearby. Concerned that this knowledge was not authentic, David kept his mutation a secret and began studying even harder. He began taking college-level courses while finishing high school until he was outed by the hate group Purity. After his cover was blown, Danielle Moonstar recruited him.
David was enrolled in the Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, given the codename Prodigy, and placed on the New Mutants.
Powers and Abilities
Prodigy is a mutant
- Psychomimetic: Subconscious, uncontrolled, form of limit telepathy, allowing temporary mimicry of skills and knowledge from nearby targets. Prodigy could acquire mental and physical abilities, be it knowledge over a subject, a foreign language, or mastery of a fighting style. He could even predict others' attacks in order to avoid them. However, he was unable to retain that knowledge. When the person left his immediate proximity, Prodigy no longer retained information.
Even without his acquired knowledge, Prodigy is very intelligent. Without using his powers, he's completed college level courses while in high school, operated complex technology, piloted the Blackbird, and built the Danger Cave.
- Prodigy originally required corrective lenses due to his poor eyesight until his vision was corrected by Elixir through his Biogenesis.
- Prodigy wears a visor/goggles with a head set and digital display for computer access, data analysis, and information files.
