Baby Intelligence, whose given name is Peter Hecks, is a fictional superhero, the leader of the S.M.S.B., and the main protagonist of The Super Babies franchise, and the tritagonist in The X-Adults: Endgame: The Latest Threat. Known for his legendary wisdom, incredible power, and skills in sword combat, he was idolized by thousands of people. After destroying the NoHeads, he continued fighting for justice.
Physical appearance Edit
As a baby, Baby Intelligence was described to be at the expected height and weight for his age. He was almost always seen in a grey-and-black supersuit with an orange-dotted 'i' that stood for "intelligence". He also wore a cap binding decorative glasses that were shaped like a mask. On occasion, however, he wore a surprisingly decorative robe while within the walls of the MBH, colored red. He was sixty-six centimeters tall and weighed ten kilograms. As a teenager, he was much taller and no longer wore the cap. Instead he had slightly bushy tan hair.
By 2104, he had a crooked nose that looked as if it had been broken at least twice. Baby Strength's punch during their friend's funeral played a role in shaping his nose. By the time he was one hundred fifty-nine years of age, his hair was white and beginning to fall out.
It is unknown how he cured his eyesight.
- "Baby Intelligence was a stern teacher, but only because he felt [his students’] defiance and confusion."
Despite his incredible power, Baby Intelligence was fairly disdainful of combat and believed that wars could not render one great. Although he sought to take the NoHeads under custody at first, the chance at arrest for those so powerful and irrevocably evil soon proved no longer an option as far as Baby Intelligence was concerned. His devotion to the Light was irrevocable, and he had incredible wisdom far beyond his years. Although never as given to humor as Force Baby or Bailey, he had a dry sense of humor. It is widely believed that one of his greatest powers was his ability to love, despite having a hard life overall and receiving no love from his own family. One of the three members he knew tried to kill him, and the other two abandoned him and left him to fend for himself. He was also open-minded and was never withdrawn from other people's knowledge, as he allowed Paige Nelson to teach him things he had not experienced given how young he was at the time. Although he was not a murderer, he was also not above killing murderous and evil individuals who went against him or initiating duels or even full battles. Inevitably, he had a strong sense of justice and equality, despising slavery and the evil ways of Dark mutants.
As a baby, Baby Intelligence also had a great deal of curiosity. He was always asking questions, always seeking to learn more. It didn't seem to matter what it was, he always wanted to learn about anything.
Despite his honorable personality, Baby Intelligence was far from flawless. He was often hasty, short-sighted and impulsive though he improved upon the last two traits. He was also known to lose his temper and let his frustration get the better of him. Fourteen years later, in 2033, he was more serious-minded and less resilient, and his curiosity had wavered to a degree, so it was at an average level by the standards of adolescents. Yet apart from these traits, he hadn’t changed much. The same applied after 2033.
Master Intelligence was perfectly prepared to put his friends' needs and best interests before his own. It was not uncommon for him to show more concern for others than himself. He was willing to sacrifice himself for any one S.M.S.B. member at any time. Ironically, this was how he died when he sacrificed himself to stop the Dark Flame from murdering Lindsay Kellerman. Master Intelligence strove to treat every S.M.S.B. member equally. He had a lot of respect for his fans; most of the Fobbles he worked with stated that he was "modest, likable, and exceptionally talented". Master Intelligence's greatest strengths were his morals and his ability to feel, understand, and reciprocate love, despite receiving nothing but neglect until he met Zett. Master Intelligence was extremely loyal to and protective of his loved ones and that love was what allowed him to overcome Mr. Stupid NoHead. Sheriff Bladepoint noted that Master Intelligence's strength of will at resisting the temptation of the Darkness, even when faced with Paige Nelson's death, who was one of his dearest friends at the time, was due to Master Intelligence's ability to love. Master Intelligence even claimed that he felt sorry for Mr. Stupid NoHead because of his inability to feel or understand love, this all proves Master Intelligence's ability to love so unequivocally.
Powers and abilities Edit
Baby Intelligence was considered, by many, the most powerful mutant of the age. Even the Dark Flame had acknowledged that Master Intelligence was a very great mutant and secretly feared him.perienced Dark mutan In many battles of the wars he involved himself in, he was able to incapacitate much more experienced Dark mutants. During the Battle of Transylvania, he was the only one of the seven S.M.S.B. members to be neither injured nor incapacitated and, along with Telekinibabe, was the only fighter on their side to emerge from the battle physically unscathed.
Baby Intelligence was widely considered the strongest person in North America. Apart from his incredible telekinetic abilities, Baby Intelligence was a master of sword combat, and was widely acknowledged as being perhaps the greatest duelist of his time despite being trained as a police officer. He was able to defeat several of the strongest NoHeads and Knights of Plague single-handedly and survive numerous encounters with Mr. Stupid NoHead and the Gladiator. Although a master of all forms, his preferred style was Form IV, as it allowed him to compensate for his limited reach and stature. His technique consisted of the pure basics of Ataru taken to their highest possible levels. Despite his young age and short stature, Baby Intelligence displayed amazing speed and dexterity, leaping through the air and twirling as he battered at an opponent’s defenses. Much of his combat style relied on jumps and acrobatics, which he was beyond capable of. Despite the fact that Intelligence’s primary Form was Ataru, he demonstrated an extreme level of skill with regard to deflecting bullets.
However, in his teen years, Master Intelligence had a more controlled and complex fighting style combining Ataru and Shien.
- Telekinesis: Baby Intelligence possessed an extraordinary level of aptitude with telekinesis. He demonstrated on one occasion the ability to telekinetically lift and carry a crane, and proved able to keep his body upward by such means at age seven. In their duel Hell Burnbottom proved unable to overcome the baby with the use of telekinetically thrown objects. Despite the sheer power that Mr. Stupid NoHead himself possessed, Baby Intelligence was able to catch him off guard with a telekinetic push just before their duel. A master practitioner of the ability, Intelligence was adept at the saber throw, as demonstrated in his return to the police station during Operation: Purge.
- Shield manipulation: He displayed an impressive mastery of the Shield, something he heavily relied on in his early years, surpassing that of many government employees: as it was one of his primary superpowers. His Shields were so powerful that they were able to deflect attacks from Mr. Stupid NoHead himself and later smash Annabeth into a wall when she tried to kill him.
- Teleportation: Thanks to Lindsay Kellerman, Master Intelligence could transport himself from one place to another with pinpoint precision, even when locked in combat. He could also apparate silently which only a master of Apparition could do.
- Dark visions: Baby Intelligence possessed an extremely rare superpower. He was able to look into the minds of his enemies and anyone near them and see through these individuals' senses from time to time. He sometimes used this ability to monitor what Mr. Stupid NoHead and Annabeth Black were doing. However, it was a dangerous ability to have as well; and one that Baby Intelligence never truly mastered control of. Additionally, because of their connection, Baby Intelligence felt himself shivering whenever one of his worst enemies felt strong negative emotions and/or inflicted such feelings upon others. Baby Intelligence also possessed a non-mutated insight into the minds of his enemies thanks to his deductive skills.
- Other powers: In addition, Baby Intelligence could feel the deaths of individual people and identify them from all around. It was believed by Burnbottom that, if Intelligence should ever fall to the dark side, his powers would be capable of annihilating even the Death Angel himself. Intelligence even beat Mr. Stupid NoHead, Mean King, and Sebiscuits in direct combat. However, despite his great power and skill, Intelligence strongly disliked combat in general, and was even a bit disdainful of the idea that “greatness” could be achieved through martial prowess.
Other abilities Edit
From the day he was born, Master Intelligence has demonstrated an incredible genius. He has also shown to be a multilingualist.
- Arts: Master Intelligence mastered all four Arts and accepted his own death. The only Art he choose to keep was the lightning cuffs as it was a priceless family heirloom; the Sword of Abomination was given to Sebiscuits Cardarphen and the Orb of Power and teleportation device were destroyed. He also displayed incredible detective skills, indeed, he was an unusually talented investigator.
- Leadership skills: As an excellent leader to others, Baby Intelligence had often taken charge when the situation required it. His skills progressed to the point where over thirty young mutants, most of whom were older than him — respect him as a teacher in the Light despite his being younger than they were. Sheriff Bladepoint later noted that Baby Intelligence was a superior leader to him. Baby Intelligence willingly took the burden of command, acknowledging his responsibilities towards those who followed him. He did this regardless of how uncomfortable he might feel about the prospect and coordinating his efforts against his enemies well. His promotion to high positions of power in his infant year demonstrate Baby Intelligence's natural talent as a commander.
- Teaching skills: He has shown tremendous skill in teaching others. Emerging from his own training at the police station less than two months after his birth, he successfully passed them onto others even when he was a baby, giving proper instructions and corrections on how to perform many fields of mutantry, ranging from the relatively simplistic sword stances to the highly advanced reversal of banes. Baby Intelligence's effectiveness as a teacher led many, some even older than him, to choose him over the Grand Army, and he even went to Superhero School to give occasional lectures.
- Indomitable will: Baby Intelligence appears to possess an unbreakable spirit and, though not above depression, he has never truly given up on any mission. He's been shown to rise from defeat and loss, such as the deaths of many loved ones, even stronger than before. His indomitable will is exemplified by his ability to resist Dark waves, and also by the fact that he had never begged for mercy even in life-and-death situations, but fought back in defiance, as well as perform complex telekinetic applications flawlessly.
At first, Baby Intelligence was believed to have been inspired by Yoda, a character from the "Star Wars" saga. This is later confirmed to not be true, as the inspiration for his character actually came from Professor Xavier, from The X-Men. The series itself was also inspired from said fandom. He was not the oldest member of the S.M.S.B., nor was he the biggest. This scenario was inspired years ago by a group from Holes, where X-Ray was one of the smallest kids yet he was the leader because he was smarter and had more experience at Camp Green Lake.
In eight out of eleven of the books, Baby Intelligence says the last line in the story.
- "And I am no longer Peter Hecks. I am Baby Intelligence!" (ZH)
- "We're not finished yet." (TS)
- "And the good news... we will be joined by a member of equal quality, maybe even greater, than she." (TLB)
- "It's not over yet. It was never over!" (RHB)
- "Guys! There is one more foe to face." (AEG)
- "Well? Come and submit your names!" (TFC)
- "Farewell, Cynthia." (TXC1)
- "No one knows what lies beyond the veil." (TXC2)
In Prequel II, Mr. Stupid NoHead says, "It is of no concern. Soon, I shall dub the greatest NoHead of all."
In Book I, Lindsay Kellerman says, "Hope I can narrate Book II! Goodbye!"
And in Book II, Lindsay says, "And remember, we're with you, no matter what happens."
Along with Annabeth Black, he is also the only character to appear in every single book of the series.
Baby Intelligence is the only known character to this day that has possessed all three of the Arts.
D. Isaac Thomas and Baby Intelligence were both born in June, only a day apart - Thomas on the ninth and Baby Intelligence on the tenth. It is unknown if this is a coincidence.
Thomas has recently revealed that Baby Intelligence is left-handed, like himself.
D. Isaac Thomas has claimed that while Baby Intelligence is a caring person, he is very pessimistic and has never fallen in love. When asked, he claimed that Baby Intelligence has "not so much as given Lindsay or Red X a hug before." This may be due to his moral code but this is not confirmed to be true.
In February 2016, Thomas told his brother, Ammon, what had happened to Master Intelligence in The X-Adults: Endgame 2. However, he was disturbed that Ammon told several people about it, which generally began a (true) rumor about Master Intelligence's later life.
Early Life Edit
With Rotta and Greg (June 10-16, 2019)Edit
Peter Hecks was born on October 10, 2019 to Rotta and Greg Hecks in the New York City Hospital. The next morning, Peter managed to escape his crib and was doing a floor puzzle by the time Rotta awoke. This shocked her and Greg very much. Over the next few days, he pondered over finding a way to speak, and quickly found the way how. As his parents were having a conversation, Peter used a magnifying glass and studied their lips. He tried to follow, and quickly succeeded. His parents were mean but cautious throughout his first week alive as he learned to stand and speak at an incredibly young age - he had also taught himself to stand when he was six days old and took his first steps. At one point, they also took him with them to a party, where he demonstrated his telekinetic powers for the first time by crushing the seatbelt to his booster and telekinetically hurling balloons at other guests, mostly children. Terrified, Rotta dragged him home. The next day, they were visited by Colby Doge, who featured Peter on TV upon meeting him. Doge even went so far as to say he was “the latest news flash.” Word soon spread about the latter; everybody wanted to meet him. Unbeknownst to him, Rotta and Greg were both plotting a way to get rid of him.
Abandonment (June 17, 2019)Edit
Peter was finally abandoned. He was asked by NASA’s leading officials to attend a space mission. Rotta left the station with Greg before he could return to Earth, after declaring he was not welcome in their home. Just then, a UFO showed up. Attempting to intervene, Peter fought back and attacked the UFO with a barrage of laser blasts. He was then able to blow up the UFO by deploying a missile. Astronauts and police by saving their ship from the UFO in a heated battle. He was then able to land the wrecked ship in the parking lot at NASA. When he came inside, he collapsed from exhaustion and misery. At that moment, a police officer named Zett arrived, who told him the police were going to adopt him, since his parents were still stubborn about their decision. He followed Zett, and was then beckoned by someone else to follow him inside a closet. Curious, Peter went inside to find a mutant baby who looked very much like himself. The baby, whose name was Sebiscuits, wished him luck, but before anything else could be said, Zett beckoned him out of the closet. Peter followed him to the police car, and they went to the police station. Peter underwent vigorous training for the next month.
A friendly policeman named Dexter, who was in his twenties, joined Peter Hecks and assisted largely in his training. On July 2, when Peter was three weeks old, he and Dexter were assigned to protect a politician from pirates who were kidnapping powerful figures for ransom. Pirates attacked the vessel, exploiting weaknesses in the design, and the politician was kidnapped despite the actions of the two police. Although Dexter had met his former friend, Sean Cornelly, who had come to forgive him, he did not tell his friend that he knew the former police. Like Dexter, Peter came to suspect that the security weaknesses and malfunctions on the senator’s craft during the battle has been deliberate sabotage, since the craft had recently undergone a security retrofit. He traced the sabotage of the senator’s ship back to the responsible factory in the snowy state of Maine.
With help from Peter, Dexter discovered that the factory was owned by Caravan, a corporation that used child labor on its assembly lines. While they were investigating further, Sean Cornelly arrived. Telling the two police that he’d found a worker willing to talk to them, he lured the pair into an ambush. There, local battle robots suddenly appeared and threatened the two police. Cornelly had betrayed Dexter for good, as he formerly worked at the factory. Dexter and Peter were forced to surrender in order to avoid collateral damage to the factory’s numerous child workers. They were injected with toxins that paralyzed them and rendered them unconscious. The incapacitated police were subsequently transported to Sean Cornelly’s headquarters.
The two police woke up in an unfamiliar room some time later, restrained by stun cuffs. They had been captured by Cornelly, who spoke to them and said he planned to hold them until the state Senator was ransomed. Unfortunately for Sean, the senator died from a sudden heart attack. This panicked Sean’s assistant, who rushed into the room where the officers were held and began to argue with the pirate leader. During their quarrel, Peter broke free from his restraints and telekinetically summoned his sword through the door the assistant had opened. Peter then dueled with Cornelly, intending to kill him. Only Dexter’s objection stopped him from slaying his overmatched foe. Instead, Peter arrested the two pirates and returned to New York with his friend.
The failure of their mission was coupled with Peter only being allowed to watch while attempting to survive any stray blasts. As such, he felt this was not truly his first battle he fought in.
Five days later, Peter was turned loose on the NoHeads of his own free will. He quickly found their robot, who was already dueling four police at once. A heated battle followed between Peter and the robot. Peter used both his sword and telekinesis exclusively to defeat the foe. Soon after, he was confronted by its maker, Mr. Stupid NoHead himself.
First Confrontation (July 2019) Edit
Peter disposed of the robot quickly, only to be confronted by Mr. Stupid NoHead. NoHead opened with use of lightning. His disgust soon turned to delight as he realized his wish to fight Rotta’s son had come true. Peter quickly fought back with a telekinetic push that sent the NoHead across the balcony. As NoHead tried to flee, Peter jumped in front of him and pulled out his sword. NoHead then drew his sword and the duel began.
The duel moved into an apartment building, where the two mutants engaged in a sword duel on the rooftop. The two fought, with Peter managing to gain the upper hand, but barely. The fight tore apart most of the junkyard as Peter was trying to crush the villain by pushing random objects at him. The police-trained mutant and the NoHead counterpoised. As Peter continued his telekinetic assault, NoHead managed to catch a dumpster and flung it back at Peter, who leaped out of it’s path. NoHead was on him quickly, firing a torrent of lightning at Peter. The attack tore Peter’s sword from his hand, and the shorter baby was forced to use a hidden gadget to withstand NoHead’s lightning. NoHead’s power was so great however, that Peter began to falter.
Peter resisted NoHead’s might, and attempted to redirect his lightning back at him. As the two duelists each attempted to overpower the other, the energy between the two suddenly exploded. The blast hurled them apart, ending the battle. Both Masters were able to grasp the edge of nearby buildings, with Peter barely managing to right himself and achieve the high ground. NoHead, however, was unable to maintain his grasp, and fell down to the street below. Peter followed him and held him at bladepoint, but spared him for the promise to leave and never return.
After the fight was over, Peter was congratulated, and Sheriff Bladepoint deemed him a true Super. They built the MBH, and Peter took the alias of Baby Intelligence.
Duel With Bomb ManEdit
Two days after the MBH was finished, Baby Intelligence installed an alarm to alert him of any dangers that may lurk nearby. Roughly an hour later, the alarms alerted Baby Intelligence to a criminal who had robbed a bus. Intelligence tracked him down and located him hiding in an alley, under the pretense of apprehending the villain. Baby Intelligence immediately confronted him, leading to a fierce fight between Baby Intelligence and Bomb Man. Baby Intelligence finally disarmed him and took him to jail in a cage attached to the Pinewood Derby. The jail guard thanked him, but also told him he couldn't just bring people to prison and hope for their arrest. Intelligence digested this and left, victorious.
Second NoHead War (July 2019-April 2020)Edit
Discovering Sebiscuits Edit
Baby Intelligence continued his quest to purge the NoHeads. Soon after his promotion, Sebiscuits came to the MBH, requesting to train with him. Intelligence tested him, but these tests were unsuccessful for Sebiscuits. Intelligence believed that the baby was clearly affected by his temper and that he still clung too tightly to his passion to be trained safely. Hours before this event, Mayor Katie Black was kidnapped by Mr. Stupid NoHead and taken onto his base, the Wasp. As he was wrapping up his meeting with Sebiscuits, Baby Intelligence was quickly called in from the police to rescue the captive leader of New York City. Baby Intelligence ordered Sebiscuits to leave, then rushed in to rescue the Mayor. However, Sebiscuits pursued, something Intelligence learned when Sebiscuits attempted to rescue his ship from disaster. Sebiscuits succeeded, and they landed onboard the Wasp, where Intelligence deduced that it was too late to escort Sebiscuits home. As a team, the two fought their way to where the Mayor was being held captive by Mr. Stupid NoHead himself.
Together, Baby Intelligence and Sebiscuits engaged the NoHead in battle. Initially, the two babies used lesser styles to lull NoHead into a false sense of confidence, before suddenly switching to their more advanced styles. NoHead was caught off-guard and pushed Intelligence off to the side to deal with Sebiscuits exclusively. While Sebiscuits clashed with NoHead, Intelligence dealt with the robot soldiers that NoHead had brought to distract the two. However, once he did so, NoHead immediately kicked Sebiscuits aside and strangled Baby Intelligence before hurling him to the side of the room and slamming him into a balcony, rendering Intelligence unconscious and injured. Consequently, he did not witness NoHead’s escape.
When Baby Intelligence recovered, he found himself upside-down, in an elevator shaft, staring at Black hanging on the shaft with Sebiscuits. Quickly righting himself, he asked where Mr. Stupid NoHead was, and Sebiscuits replied that he had escaped. After exiting the elevator, Intelligence suggested they make their way to the hangar to hopefully find another escape vessel. However, he and his allies were confronted by more robots. Sebiscuits was separated from Intelligence and the Mayor by a ray wall, but they rendezvoused a little while later. Intelligence’s comlink then received a distress call from another police who’s cruiser was being brutally attacked. Sebiscuits and Intelligence then mounted two of the Wasp’s cannons to attack the NoHead ship that was attacking the cruiser. They shot the vital sections of the ship, and destroyed the battleship. When they got back into the hallways, however, they got caught in a ray shield.
Brought to the bridge, they were gloated at by another NoHead, but Baby Intelligence telekinetically threw back her hood and was shocked to find his mother was alleged with the NoHeads. Despite this, Intelligence remained confident and retrieved his sword from Rotta and cut his and Sebiscuits’ bonds. Engaging and defeating Rotta’s bodyguards, they moved to corner the NoHead. However, Rotta climbed aboard her escape vessel and deserted the fight. Having no other escape, Intelligence asked if Sebiscuits could pilot this cruiser. Sebiscuits managed to crash-land the remains of the ship, and they walked away relatively unscathed. After the fight, Sebiscuits was dubbed a superhero by Baby Intelligence, who had long had a change of heart.
Discovering Baby Strength and Force Baby Edit
When Baby Intelligence discovered the NoHeads were building a new base in nearby town Palmura, he took off with the others to stop them. On the way, they landed in the office, and there they found two orphan babies. They introduced themselves by their well-worn alliances, Baby Strength and Force Baby. Baby Intelligence asked them if they wanted to come, after Sebiscuits explained where they were going. The babies obliged, and they all took off together.
The battle initiated when Paige, aboard her ship, encountered the NoHead construction site. Baby Intelligence thanked her and they landed. Intelligence climbed out, and everyone on his front engaged the enemy. They faced enormous opposition from tanks, DSD droids and Heavy Missile Platforms. They did their best to hold the line, and eventually moved to the edge of the lake to lead an attack on approaching NoHead forces.
As the S.M.S.B. members were being beaten back on several fronts, Baby Strength and Force Baby intervened, and attempted to cut a path through the fleet. Destroying the central tank with a bomb, the two leaped off and joined the others. Finally, Baby Strength leaped off and sabotaged the inside of another crucial ship, destroying the command bridge, doorway, and engines. Amazed, Baby Intelligence turned to a squad of robots and eliminated the group. The battle seemed to go back and forth until, despite the best efforts of the combined S.M.S.B. defense, the NoHeads were overun. Intelligence’s pupils had been beaten back by NoHead forces.
Attempting to rally, Baby Intelligence leaped headlong into the main lines, followed by Paige and Force Baby. With that, the tide of the battle turned in favor of the S.M.S.B. With the foiling of this crucial mission, the NoHeads began to retreat from their half-built base. Force Baby let Baby Intelligence borrow one of his bombs, which he used to blow up the half-finished base. Afterwards, Baby Intelligence offered them ranks in the S.M.S.B. Although Baby Strength was initially hesitant, Force Baby could not resist the opportunity.
Darren Slade's VisitEdit
Less than a month after he joined the NoHeads, Darren Slade felt terrible for his actions. After he realized Annabeth could not help him, he instead went to Baby Intelligence for help. In response, Baby Intelligence told him that if he betrayed them, he would probably die. He instead advised Darren become an insurgent under the government, which he did.
Sebiscuits' Betrayal Edit
Sebiscuits was still an S.M.S.B. member, but he began to feel conflicted about the possibility that Baby Intelligence was virtually neglecting him. Further severing his trust in him, Intelligence urged Sebiscuits to spy on Mr. Stupid NoHead, Sebiscuits began distrusting him even more. Believing he was trying to keep him away from the MBH, Sebiscuits began to slowly lose his respect for the governing body, a mistrust and plaguing uncertainty that furthered his fall to darkness, though Intelligence was unaware of this. As he continued to meet with NoHead, the villain slowly began to plant the seeds of the dark side in Sebiscuits. Playing to his fears, he told Sebiscuits that Intelligence was conspiring against him. As Sebiscuits was letting off steam that he had revolving around Baby Intelligence and his decisions, he met with NoHead and began to share with him his frustrations. Feeling like this was the correct time, NoHead offered Sebiscuits the chance to learn the ways of the dark side from him and use the power he had to find his purpose. Sebiscuits angrily drew his sword and contemplated killing NoHead on the spot as soon as he learned his true motives, but decided against it. Baby Intelligence never found out what happened there.
Back at the MBH, Baby Intelligence prepared for a search for the new NoHead base. However, a distraught Sebiscuits arrived and confirmed it was in Palmyra. Baby Intelligence thanked him and summoned the others; then they boarded their Pinewood Derby along with Sebiscuits. Paige flew in her personal fighter. They departed to destroy the new base.
As the fight began, Baby Intelligence disabled an NBV vehicle and decided to ride it to the base, along with another one Paige ended up riding. They arrived at the front gate, but the five robots guarding the gates spotted them there and alerted the entire army. The S.M.S.B. retaliated, fearlessly engaging the army. After clearing the squad, Baby Intelligence led the others in the base itself. As the battle raged in the hangar, Sebiscuits and Paige left. Baby Intelligence fought on, and they made their way for the control room.
Eventually, Baby Intelligence sensed Paige was in danger. He took off in a speeder and arrived upon the scene as his friend was in free-fall. Catching Paige in his open-top airspeeder, Intelligence went to rejoin the battle.
While the battle raged, Mr. Stupid NoHead ordered his replicas to execute Operation: Purge, which meant the extermination of all police. Baby Intelligence sensed his police brethren being killed all around and, coming to the only logical conclusion for so many concurrent deaths of his fellow police, he suddenly realized, in an instant, that the NoHeads were responsible. Worst of all, before the attack began, he felt Sebiscuits’ ascension into NoHead’s new apprentice. Despite being filled with grief, he was still able to defend himself.
They then went to the conquered police station so they could rescue any survivors. As they clashed with a legion of robot soldiers, Paige rejoined them via speeder bike, her mechnohand now installed. Together, they infiltrated the base, and saw the station littered with the bodies of fallen police, who had been slaughtered with a sword. They fought their way through to the control room and came across recordings on a security camera that showed his former apprentice cutting down several police, and bowing before NoHead and being proclaimed his new apprentice. Although Baby Intelligence was heartbroken, Paige managed to rouse him to action.
Just then, Sebiscuits entered the room and challenged the entire group. Baby Intelligence could only watch as he blasted Force Baby, electrocuted Paige, and cut Baby Strength across the shoulder. Intelligence came face to face with the traitor and attempted to reason with him, to no avail. Left with no choice, he drew his sword and dueled with him. As they fought, the battle progressed throughout the State Capitol building.
In the end, Baby Intelligence managed to defeat Sebiscuits by telekinetically shattering both of his weapons. Before he could act on this, however, Mr. Stupid NoHead intervened and blasted him away from Sebiscuits, before picking him up. Intelligence threw a homing beacon on the ship. Despite this, the beacon failed to deliver, and Greg Hecks was killed soon before.
Protecting the KellermansEdit
Later, Baby Intelligence learned of a prophecy foretelling the death of the NoHeads. He was surprised to learn that Mr. Stupid NoHead had concluded that the prophecy was about Lindsay Kellerman, the daughter of Zach and Bridgett Kellerman. Along with Sheriff Bladepoint, Baby Intelligence made arrangements to ensure the safety of the three; he advised them to stay hidden in their house, which was protected by a Taboo. However, their Secret-Keeper (believed by Baby Intelligence and everyone else to be Sheriff Bladepoint, but was in truth Mykew Hadeline) betrayed them, resulting in Zach and Bridgett’s deaths at NoHead’s hands. However, as NoHead attempted to murder Lindsay, she turned invisible and his lightning backfired. NoHead left in a rage, and Lindsay’s fate was sealed.
Battle of the NoHead Base Edit
- Baby Intelligence later called a meeting, and said they needed to strike back. An hour later, he led the S.M.S.B. against the NoHead fleet in orbit near the NoHead base, beginning a vicious sky battle. His piloting talents and leadership skills led to a victory.
A mysterious vessel caught his eye, and he was drawn from the battle after determining that the pilot was Mr. Stupid NoHead. As the others descended to the base, Baby Intelligence and NoHead engaged in a dogfight. NoHead finally headed back to base, and Intelligence followed the enigmatic skyfighter through an intense chase through the halls of the base.
Finally, Baby Intelligence deserted the fight. Meanwhile, the others revealed themselves to the NoHeads. At the same time, NoHead had left to a balcony with his comrades. Intelligence met up with the others, only to deal with an army of Rockets. With that, a heated but short battle followed, during which Sebiscuits decapitated Paige.
Mr. Stupid NoHead, who was personally overseeing the battle, turned his rage on Rotta, believing the entire war was her fault. After electrocuting her and smashing her into a balcony, NoHead prepared to murder her. Yet as NoHead cast lightning, Rotta simultaneously cast her own lightning, and their streams locked together. NoHead won the battle of wills and tortured Rotta before knocking her off the balcony. Baby Intelligence witnessed this and was horror-struck. He began to cry as he hugged Rotta’s corpse. NoHead goaded him from the balcony.
With that, Baby Intelligence’s rage exploded. Climbing to NoHead’s position, Intelligence tapped into the dark side and used his hate and anger to boost his physical prowess. He then attacked NoHead with such intensity that their swords’ energy shells began to short out. NoHead, taken completely off guard by Intelligence’s sudden increase in power and aggression, was forced onto his back foot and quickly driven into the balcony’s adjoining hall. Intelligence continued to hammer NoHead with vicious power attacks until NoHead lost his footing and collapsed against a railing on the side of the bridge. After a few more blows, Intelligence drove NoHead’s sword aside with an undercut, causing him to collapse onto the floor. As Baby Intelligence held his defenseless enemy at bladepoint, NoHead fired lightning, blasting him aside. Baby Intelligence righted himself and knocked NoHead off the balcony. There, he snatched the metal tube.
Mr. Stupid NoHead attacked Baby Intelligence with a jet of lightning, which Baby Intelligence countered with a cord of red light. As both attacks collided producing a heating effect, the two bolts connected. NoHead redirected his lightning (still locked in battle with Intelligence) in all directions, with lightning-like tendrils ejecting from the main beam, but was unsuccessful and instead hit the ground and several of his own troops, causing chairs to explode and parts of the walls to come crashing down on the floor. NoHead slashed his hand to break the connection and quickly breathed fire and conjured a huge, fiery cord. The fire, which was not corporeal, realized the presence of Baby Intelligence, striking down in an attempt to destroy him. Backing up, Intelligence countered with the metal tube and gathered the flames for himself, whirling them into a fiery ring like mass, and sent them hurtling towards NoHead. NoHead took the hit and essentially died with sparks pouring from his screaming form. This action deactivated the robot army and caused Burnbottom to flee to Wyoming with his brothers.
After the battle, Baby Intelligence headed home with the only two S.M.S.B. members left - Baby Strength and Force Baby. On the way, he realized this and commended them for their loyalty. When they arrived, he said they got a free period (though in reality, he did not have the time or energy for their afternoon exercises). Two hours later, he burned Rotta's corpse in a private cremation. The following morning, he heard the ghost of Rotta speaking to him. Hearing this, Baby Intelligence believed he was having hallucinations. The following day, he had a full medical checkup, during which time the doctor claimed that nothing was wrong with him.
Baby Intelligence awoke in the care of Riley Bell and Abram van Dukas, and opened the last scroll and lined up the runes to read "Descendant of McCallin".
Ambush at the McCallin HouseEdit
- Lucy McCallin: "Now, how might I be of service, young man?"
- Baby Intelligence: "Well, it's about the Chosen One who's supposed to stop Dark mutantry from dominating the universe."
- Lucy McCallin: "Can I see your scrolls? Oho! Listen, the robots' massing, the Sagesse returning, the implosions in Louisiana, it's all happening because of you!"
- Baby Intelligence: "So we're to blame?"
- Lucy McCallin: "Not remotely! You in fact have my gratitude. Why do you think the Chosen One is hanging around now?"
- — Baby Intelligence and Lucy McCallin converse[src]
Their next stop confirmed, the three superheroes traveled to Lucy McCallin's home to question Lucy about the prophecy. Lucy remembered the prophecy bequeathed to her by Sir Edgar Caravan, and asked for the three scrolls. When Baby Intelligence pulled them out, McCallin explained that the subject’s involvement was already imminent, for a prophecy stated that a mysterious and highly gifted child was destined to defeat the Dark Lord. Baby Intelligence immediately expressed that he was born on the tenth of June, and that ironically, it may be him. Unfortunately, they then learned that Lucy had summoned NoHeads because she feared she would be punished for harboring the S.M.S.B. Grandmaster.
Immediately afterwards, the room they were in exploded, rent apart by Dark mutantry. Baby Intelligence was blown against what was left of the rooftop as NoHeads Nolan Giles and Hell Burnbottom entered the ruined house a floor below. Thinking quickly, he whistled into his comlink for the Pinewood Derby, which had been left in Nepal. At that moment, Lucy fired a taser at him, but Force Baby tripped her. Baby Intelligence chose to sacrifice the precious bomb on his utility belt, throwing it downstairs and causing a huge explosion that allowed Baby Strength to jump into the Derby. It flew into the house to pick up Force Baby, and once they blasted Mean King out of the way, they flew away to safety.
- "That's who he's looking for. That's why he hasn't found us yet. He's multitasking."
- ―Baby Intelligence reflecting[src]
Baby Intelligence saw a vision of Lucy being taken into custody, which was the complete opposite of what she intended to accomplish by initiating the ambush, and he asked Force Baby to wake him. The trio then discussed the Chosen One. Baby Intelligence also realized that Mr. Stupid NoHead was seeking the second apprentice of Merlin. Having heard from their late the S.M.S.B. fled for New Hampshire, where they heard from their now deceased friend Bash that there was an unusual concentration of mutantryi, they flew there.
Fighting the Lunch Money Bandit Edit
At New Hampshire, the S.M.S.B. briefly took refuge at a homeless shelter. Finally, they climbed onto a rooftop and began conversing there when Annabeth Black and Kenzie Walters Teleported onto the roof and kidnapped Baby Strength before vanishing again. Utterly disheartened, Baby Intelligence told off Force Baby for wanting to continue the chase, calling him delusional and, in his irritation that quickly turned to fury, going so far as to say Force Baby betrayed him. Furious, Force Baby left, but then Baby Intelligence noticed a robbery going on below. They cornered the Lunch Money Bandit, who had just barely stolen lunch money from Percy and Stephanie, two Fobble children. They pounced on the mugger and managed to shake the stolen money off of him, which lands before Percy and Stephanie’s feet. The bandit reacts by launching a grenade. However, Lindsay Kellerman, who was an orphan in the same alleyway, made the grenade disappear. Baby Strength grabbed the crook and, with Force Baby’s help, threw him into Officer Walltalker’s patrol car.
Discovering Lindsay Kellerman Edit
Believing he has found the baby he had foreseen would join them, Baby Intelligence brought Kellerman with them and he finally decided they would return to the MBH. Kellerman arrived at Baby Intelligence’s office, where Baby Intelligence introduced himself and told her he has identified her power of mass teleportation. He asked her if she will join, and Kellerman extended her hand to shake on it. However, this was interrupted by a recently-installed alarm. Together, they made for the Pinewood Derby to stop a bank robbery. On the way, Baby Intelligence introduces her to Force Baby, reduced from Cardarphen and Nelson.
They arrived at the bank, but they were too late to prevent the robbery. However, Baby Intelligence did realize that Mr. Stupid NoHead was most likely the culprit, as Annabeth Black had sent them a letter. Kellerman babbled in fear. Baby Intelligence thought she was asking who Mr. Stupid NoHead was, and he told her. They then mounted to their car and headed off to face the Dark Lord.
Battle of the Fifth NoHead Base Edit
They arrived at the NoHead base, where Baby Intelligence rescued Aegii with help from Kellerman and Force Baby, who flatly refused to wait outside. Aegii hid and they began searching for Baby Strength. Thanks to a NoHead Recruit named Sean, their arrival was detected immediately.
Mr. Stupid NoHead arrived and captured them, but then the Romans, whom Force Baby had contacted, converged on the scene and beat back hordes of NoHead forces. Baby Intelligence prepared to join the fight, but when he realized his sword was missing, much to his bewilderment, he ducked into a corner, not knowing what to do. Suddenly, he heard Mr. Stupid NoHead telling Annabeth Black to leave with him, around the time he found Kellerman. Along with Force Baby, he pursued the Dark Lord and cornered him inside an antechamber. Angered, Mr. Stupid NoHead confronted the group. Baby Intelligence seized a log for defense. During the fight, NoHead nearly knocked Kellerman into the fireplace; however, Baby Intelligence leaped forward and pushed her away. However, he accidentally tumbled to the edge of a window. Seeing his chance, NoHead tried throwing some logs at the baby in order to knock him out the window, only to have the hero knock one back at him with his own log. However, when Mr. Stupid NoHead tossed a wagon at his opponent, Baby Intelligence was successfully knocked out the window.
Baby Intelligence rolled away into a trap beginning with a savage waterfall made entirely of tomato juice. He was then knocked into a vast chamber, where a pack of hungry wolves await. Intelligence did not revert to telekinesis, believing there were too many. At that moment, the other members arrived, and together they engaged the sevlows and came out ahead. Thanks to a vision he glimpsed, Baby Intelligence nearly fell into a vat of fire, but Kellerman Teleported everyone back into the NoHead base, leaving herself for last.
When the S.M.S.B. returned, Baby Intelligence noticed a death machine and spoke German to make it self-destruct. The explosion woke Mr. Stupid NoHead, and he entered the room to discover the wreckage. Baby Intelligence argued with the villain, lecturing him for what he had done and asking him to see the bigger picture, but all his attempts were rebuked and the angry Dark mutant attacked. Baby Intelligence fought back against the Dark Lord, but it quickly became clear that his skills were no match for Mr. Stupid NoHead. Thinking he had Baby Intelligence cornered, Mr. Stupid NoHead prepared to fatally zap him, but trapped within a field of ice Baby Intelligence used his second wish on the platinum pencil to implore Merlin's second apprentice for aid, and was subsequently saved by the wizard's sudden arrival.
Mr. Stupid NoHead bore down on them both, along with the President and Force Baby, but a mysterious binding energy connected Baby Intelligence with Lindsay Kellerman. They easily cast away the Bratpro illusions as they engaged Mr. Stupid NoHead in a duel of wills with the latter trying to assert his power. Baby Intelligence, however, proved himself unyielding and declared Mr. Stupid NoHead as "Worthless, Loveless, Devoid of all Goodness" and Kellerman demanded that he returns to the underworld "where [he] belongs". Ultimately the two babies overpowered Mr. Stupid NoHead, who was flung into the Fire Room headfirst. The encounter sapped their energy, however, and they fell unconscious.
Baby Intelligence woke on a bed in the Rome American Hospital, where Baby Strength and Force Baby assured him that Mr. Stupid NoHead had been destroyed and Kellerman, like himself, had almost made a full recovery. Thankig the Prime Minister, Baby Intelligence, Baby Strength, Force Baby, and Kellerman all returned to the Pinewood Derby, which was still parked outside the base. On the way home, Baby Intelligence declared that they had found a keeper, clearly referring to Lindsay. Everyone cheered.
Being that Hell Burnbottom still existed, Baby Intelligence believed that a NoHead must still remain.
The ceremony Edit
Throughout the next week, Baby Intelligence taught Lindsay Kellerman the basics of sword combat, and also designed and sewed her supersuit. As a result of Mr. Stupid NoHead's demise, the S.M.S.B. received medals of honor from Mayor Ai Chiou on the eighteenth. Baby Intelligence chose this point and time to give Kellerman her supersuit.
The day after the battle, Baby Intelligence returned to the NoHead base and took the surviving wolves to a rescue organization that took the wolves.
First Battle of the Yellowstone Base Edit
Determined to rescue Role, locate the new base, and destroy the NoHeads, Baby Intelligence, accompanied by Lindsay, Baby Strength, and Force Baby, was able to locate and open the Chamber using his fluency in German. Once they got down into the Chamber, it was not long before they encountered Hell Burnbottom, Brute Gunray, and Mean King. Mean King quickly took down Force Baby. While Burnbottom engaged Baby Strength and Lindsay, Baby Intelligence slipped away, but not before seeing Baby Strength go down.
During the battle, Baby Intelligence ventured down into the control room and quickly located the blabberish voice box. He used his sword to destroy the box inside the Chamber, then escaped a burst of flames thereafter. Baby Intelligence returned to confront Hell Burnbottom, after he had grievously wounded Lindsay. After deflecting Burnbottom’s powers, among which was lightning, Baby Intelligence resorted to sword combat. A sword duel began between the two and Intelligence almost managed to defeat Burnbottom, however the NoHead telekinetically dropped a pillar over Lindsay and Baby Strength. Intelligence had to turn and push them away. As the pillar crashed, Burnbottom made his escape.
Ambush and Discovery Edit
Baby Intelligence was chatting merrily with the other members when he encountered a NoHead probe droid watching them. Intelligence sensed the intrusion and struck the droid down, yet the damage was already done.
The NoHead Hell Burnbottom had been trailing the S.M.S.B. and recovered his destroyed probe during the night. The next morning, everyone boarded the Pinewood Derby, Baby Intelligence and Lindsay taking up the rear. As they approached, they were intercepted by Burnbottom who nearly knocked down Lindsay with his speeder. Baby Intelligence fought the villain in a vicious sword duel as the ship took off behind him. As they dueled, Burnbottom sensed that Baby Intelligence was growing tired and decided to press the attack. Jumping high, the baby managed to land on the boarding ramp as the ship soared away, leaving Burnbottom behind in their garage. However, the Pinewood Derby was nearly out of fuel. Baby Intelligence landed in the back of a junkyard. Hoping to find some fuel, Baby Intelligence entered the shop, where he encountered the junk dealer Albert Herrington and his slave, a mutant baby named Tyler. The boy possessed incredible power. Baby Intelligence agreed to help Tyler, who was building a skyracer. In the junkyard, he acquired necessary machine parts—a mass coupler and a servo control system for the racing vehicle.
This section assumes a deleted scene really happened. It may not have occurred canonically.
Albert agreed to hold a skyrace, and promised that if Tyler won, he would get to join them. In order to bet on Tyler during the Great Sky Race, Baby Intelligence agreed to meet Empress Zira, Queen of the U.S.A., in order to borrow money from the monarch. He met her assistant soon after. He gave him directions, which led to an arena under Zira’s throne room. Zira offered Intelligence 25 dollars if he could defeat her monstrous champion in a death match. Intelligence was able to achieve victory over the beast, and took the money. He then left the arena after Zira. Impressed by his skill and cunning, Zira opened the exit. Intelligence found himself in a lounge and asked the tailor where to find his transport. The tailor took him to the transport, and he hurried back to New York City. After returning the transport, Intelligence regrouped with the others in the grandstands.
Baby Intelligence then headed down to the starting line, and met with Tyler. When he arrived there, someone had stolen the ignition key from Tyler’s racer. Intelligence tracked down the thief around the bottom of the arena and removed a loose block in the wall, which took him to another room where he encountered the scavenger, who refused to return the key and attacked Intelligence. Mechanized blasters appeared and fired at Intelligence during the clash. Intelligence was forced to kill the scavenger and destroy the guns; he then brought the key back to Tyler.
Ultimately, Tyler won the race. Later, Baby Intelligence was able to release him from slavery as planned, when he bet Albert on the boy’s victory at the Great Skyrace. The wager also resulted in obtaining fuel for their ship. Baby Intelligence applied the fuel, then returned to free Tyler. Outside of the junkyard, Baby Intelligence sold Tyler’s racer to Whammo, then went to find Tyler. He found him saying goodbye to an old friend. As they left, Baby Intelligence handed Tyler the money he had acquired by selling the plane. Baby Intelligence and Tyler returned to the junkyard, where he revealed that the baby had been freed from slavery. Excited, Tyler said goodbye to Albert and agreed to go with Intelligence to train as an S.M.S.B. member. His new name would be Telekinibabe. With their means to return to the NoHead base secured, Baby Intelligence and his new charge headed to the backyard to meet up with their companions. Both mounted the Pinewood Derby, and everyone took off at last.
Telekinibabe convinced Baby Intelligence to take them to the police to form an alliance. Upon their return to the police station, they landed in the swamps. While Baby Strength went to find the police, Intelligence waited with the others, discussing on whether the police could be swayed. He also told Telekinibabe what was to happen.
Baby Strength emerged from the swamp, stating that the city had been abandoned, so he led the S.M.S.B. to the older station. On the way, they battled many NoHead troops, who were sometimes already fighting policemen. The laser cannons proved especially essential to sink a NoHead Ocean Transport and to travel up the lake.
After that, they encountered five more Aqua Rockets guarding a bridge, along with more regular Rockets. Past the bridge, the Derby swerved past a set of ruins. After the ruins, they faced 7 more Rockets.
They soon arrived at the old police station, where Baby Intelligence attempted to convince Sheriff Bladepoint to unify with them and oust the NoHeads for good. Bladepoint agreed, and the two warring groups hastily put an end to their dispute to concentrate on a more pressing issue: the common foe. Baby Intelligence and Sheriff Bladepoint then formed a plan to bring the NoHeads to justice. The plan would consist of him leading a strike team into the NoHead base and capture the NoHeads, while at the same time the Police Grand Army, led by Dexter and Force Baby, would lead a ground assault to distract the Rocket army.
Second Battle of the Yellowstone Base Edit
After Sheriff Bladepoint joined them, Baby Intelligence and Lindsay started out aiding Bladepoint and his group after they infiltrated the city.
The babies were walking along the deserted streets of the base when they were attacked by a Rocket on an NBV vehicle. They reflected its bullets back at it, destroying the Rocket and causing the platform to crash, intact. The two babies decided to ride it and another one they found through the streets, destroying numerous Rockets and Bratpros before they eventually dismounted at the cliffs surrounding the base.
They then proceeded to track down the base. Lindsay suggested they use the latch, but Baby Intelligence said they were surely removed by now. When they found it, they rejoined the Sheriff’s strikeforce outside of the Yellowstone Hangar. Baby Intelligence and Lindsay led the team inside, where they faced resistance from Rockets, which were quickly eliminated, but not before the droids alerted the NoHeads themselves.
The strike force was discovered, and with Rocket reinforcements on the way, Lindsay was asked to assist the resistance in securing the hangar by destroying the 4 power cells powering the doors. A policeman individually lowered the shields on the power cells, and Lindsay sliced through each one when its shield was down. The others provided covering fire, and in Baby Intelligence’s case, sword cover while Lindsay was disabling the power cells. They faced several Rockets, along with robotic fighters in walker mode which rose up from below the hangar.
Lewis ordered the police to regroup, and the strike force moved toward the third floor. Then the doors opened, revealing the familiar warrior wielding his double-bladed sword Baby Intelligence had engaged twice. Parting from Baby Strength, the two babies moved to attack him. After Hell Burnbottom appeared, Baby Strength and the police continued the long way, but they were then pinned down by a squad of Bratpros. Telekinibabe, taking refuge in a local skyfighter, accidentally took off, destroyed the droids with the craft’s far stronger laser cannon blasts, and headed to the control station. The babies and NoHead engaged in a duel that waged on into the Generator Complex while everyone else left the hangar through a separate door.
While the Sheriff and his posse went to stop Brute Gunray and Mean King, the two babies engaged Burnbottom. The sword duel was frenzied and brutal, moving through the hangar and into the Generator Complex, where they fought on the precarious catwalks. When Burnbottom kicked Lindsay over the edge of the catwalk they were fighting on, Baby Intelligence was forced to continue the duel alone. While his student rushed to catch up, Intelligence and Burnbottom moved on, passing through an impenetrable force field system to a bottomless pit. The fields closed between them, separating the combatants momentarily, but also separated Lindsay from Baby Intelligence, 9 shields apart. Intelligence took advantage of the break in the duel to crouch down and meditate. When the shields deactivated, Intelligence immediately attacked Burnbottom while Lindsay rushed to help her Master.
However, the shields closed again, preventing Lindsa from aiding her mentor. Although Baby Intelligence was one of the best duelists of all time, his preferred practice of Form IV proved disadvantageous in the confined space of the cooling pit, as Ataru required a wide, open space for its energetic acrobatics and multi-angular bladework. Also, Burnbottom had the advantage of experience and pure strength, while at the same time recognizing his opponent’s weariness.
The end result was Baby Intelligence being hit in the face with Burnbottom’s hilt, leaving him stunned and slashed. Baby Intelligence faked death from the blow. Meanwhile, Burnbottom turned his attention to Lindsay and taunted the baby, saying that he had found her Master somewhat disappointing.
Lindsay rushed to face Burnbottom as soon as the shields opened, and as she continued to duel Burnbottom, Lindsay succeeded in slicing the NoHead’s double-bladed sword hilt in half, but was then knocked into the pit. Though Lindsay managed to hold onto the edge of the pit, she lost her sword, leaving her defenseless. Ultimately, Lindsay defeated Burnbottom when she apparated from the pit, called her Master’s sword to her hand, and felled the villain.
Skirmish In The Bench StoreEdit
As Mean King waited for word from Brute Gunray, Baby Intelligence and Force Baby entered the office. Quickly dispatching Mean King’s Rocket guards with his sword, Baby Intelligence confronted Mean King, who dueled them both. He managed to knock out Force Baby, then attacked Intelligence with lightning. His disgust soon turned to delight as he realized his wish to fight Intelligence had come true. Baby Intelligence quickly fought back and pulled out his sword. Mean King then drew his sword and the duel began.
The duel moved into the store itself, where the two mutants engaged in a saber duel on the desk. The two fought until Mean King leaped away. The fight tore apart most of the Bench Store as Mean King was trying to crush the S.M.S.B. leader by throwing benches at him. The S.M.S.B. leader and the last NoHead son were counterpoised. As the duel progressed, and Mean King continued his telekinetic assault, Intelligence managed to catch one of the benches and flung it back at Mean King, who leapt out of it’s path. Intelligence took the chance to engage the distracted Dark Lord at close quarters once again, but Mean King disarmed him.
The diminutive baby was forced to use his gadget to withstand Mean King’s lightning. Mean King’s power was great, but Intelligence was able to resist his might, and he attempted to redirect the lightning. As the two duelists attempted to overpower each other, the energy between the two suddenly exploded. The blast hurled them apart, ending the battle. Mean King was able to grasp the edge of a nearby bench, while Intelligence crashed into the desk and fell down to the floor of the Bench Store. Mean King leaped after, only to be decapitated. Baby Strength called and said he had defeated Brute Gunray.
Battle of the Eastern Field Edit
- Carol Wilcox: "I'm really sorry, Baby Intelligence. I know how much he meant to you."
- Baby Intelligence: "He's the one who taught me. And yet his corpse, it disappeared pretty quickly. There's nothing left of him, which is a good thing."
- — Carol Wilcox and Baby Intelligence[src]
Suddenly, Bladepoint yelled at Baby Intelligence to flee from his position. Baby Intelligence obediently ran out of the way. As if out of nowhere, an explosion of Dark energy manifesting itself into tiny fireworks ravaged Bladepoint's body and killed him. Baby Intelligence was burned by the explosion, but his grief over Bladepoint’s death kept him conscious long enough to crawl over to him in front of hundreds of staring people, his body broken from the energies. Baby Intelligence started to cry over Bladepoint’s corpse as well as wiping a trickle of blood from the dead Sheriff’s mouth with his (Baby Intelligence’s) own sleeve, but then he fell unconscious. Fortunately, he received medical attention.
Realizing it was time to part with the horse Flame, Baby Intelligence left him in the hands of the Police Grand Army.
Funeral of Sheriff Bladepoint Edit
Following the death of Sheriff Bladepoint, his funeral was carried out. He sat alone, even rejecting Telekinibabe's attempts to comfort him, which he soon came to regret, for he felt very lonely. Wilcox eventually walked over to comfort him during the cremation, which he reluctantly allowed her to do. He told her he was glad there was nothing left of Bladepoint's corpse, and in response, she spotted a wishing star and revealed to Baby Intelligence just how badly she wanted the Police Grand Army to win the war.
When the sun rose, Dorber resolved to return to Woodsbury, and Baby Intelligence promised to follow him within half a week's time. His pupils heavily protested against this, but Baby Intelligence insisted upon his decision, claiming there needed to be balance and there was more to life than war. Nevertheless, he did not leave for another three days. He also laughed when Wilcox joked that she would go so far as to get on a Skater, play against Dorber, and win.
Upon his return home, Baby Intelligence, in his sleep, entered a strange meditation, where he met Sheriff Bladepoint, overcome with a mixture of grief and joy. Bladepoint smiled and hugged him back, though he puzzled him by showing alarm by how dramatically his apprentice embraced him. He told Baby Intelligence to continue fighting and that because life was not living if he lost what he loved, to guard it most dearly. He then Deteleported, leaving Baby Intelligence lost and confused, but also confident and once again motivated.
Between the Wars (May 2020-2037)Edit
Duel With Cygnus EvansEdit
After getting the article, the S.M.S.B. immediately went to stop the Lunch Money Bandit. When they finally found him in the Third NoHead base, they were forced to bypass several exhausting barriers and they were picked off one-by-one, leaving only Baby Intelligence and Force Baby to locate him in the main chamber. They engaged Cygnus in a fierce duel. The Lunch Money Bandit finally had to relinquish, and faked his own death. Satisfied, Baby Intelligence called the group away. The S.M.S.B. members left, thinking they had won.
Volcanic Clash Edit
Baby Intelligence was reminded of Sebiscuits’ existence by a newspaper article, and purusued him along with the other members of the S.M.S.B. After a chase, Sebiscuits drove them into a volcano. Once Sebiscuits climbed inside, Intelligence attempted to reason with the NoHead. Sebiscuits refused to be swayed, and Intelligence resultedly drew his sword. With a murderous battle cry, Sebiscuits drew his and leaped at Intelligence, and a great battle began. Sebiscuits viciously drove Baby Intelligence back through the complex with his mastery of Ataru, however he was unable to penetrate Intelligence’s mastery of the same form. Their bout in the control room of the volcano deactivated the energy shield protecting the settlement, so when their fight spread to the collection arms of the facility, they were forced to dodge a rain of fire. While they were fighting, the lava caused the collection arms structure to weaken and eventually collapse and break loose.
Baby Intelligence and Sebiscuits continued to fight on the collection arm as it floated down a lava river, but Baby Intelligence leaped off onto one of the platforms floating above the river. He turned to find his enemy perched on another platform, having leaped from the structure before it plunged to oblivion. As their fight continued they floated back upriver. Baby Intelligence desperately tried to reason with Sebiscuits, but Sebiscuits seemed beyond redemption. As their battle edged close to shore, Baby Intelligence took his chance and leaped onto the shore, gaining the high ground over Sebiscuits. Although Intelligence warned Sebiscuits off, the NoHead refused and lunged at his former master, only to have his right arm and both legs cut off, sending the NoHead tumbling down the lava bank.
As Baby Intelligence watched Sebiscuits scream in agony, his old apprentice screamed hatred for him. Intelligence stared at his old apprentice, sadness in his eyes and replied that he still loved him despite his sins. As he watched Sebiscuits’ graphic near-immolation from the heat of the lava, he retrieved the NoHead’s sword. However, he changed his mind and rescued the Dark Lord from what was almost a horrific fiery demise. After being rebuilt in a life-support suit, Sebiscuits thanked Intelligence for saving him and begged for a reapplication to the S.M.S.B.
Growing Up (2021-27) Edit
After that fateful duel, Baby Intelligence built a motor home over the next few months whilst also continuing the training of the other members. When the vehicle was complete, he rallied the S.M.S.B. together, and they began a new mission to purge any criminals in the U.S.A. and wipe all evil off their country. During the mission, which became known as American Purge, they virtually lived in the motor home. One of the most difficult criminals they faced was Spicy Mead. In 2023, they returned successful two years later, and Master Intelligence allowed the others five days of free time where they could relax and play. When this period was over, he continued to train the other members. He himself received exclusive training from Rotta Hecks’ spirit. In 2025 he took the name of Master Intelligence, which he would go by for life. In 2027, he sensed an unusual amount of crimes being committed. He found the source was a man named Darren Slade, who had been possessed by Mr. Stupid NoHead’s spirit, and engaged him in combat. Master Intelligence won the duel and was able to help Slade eject NoHead from his body, and Darren was more himself. As a result, Master Intelligence made sure Darren was not arrested for the crimes he had been forced to commit.
Meeting Jonathan (2028)Edit
In 2028, rumors of a former NoHead base in Albany compelled Jaden Vang, the leader of the Outpost in the Appalachian Mountains, to mount an expedition there. Vang brought a homeless orphan named Jonathan with him, as he knew his skills as a mechanic and believed they would come in handy. Vang also brought six hired protectors with him. Together, they attempted to find the rumored base. However, on the way, they were mobbed by a band of thieves. However, Master Intelligence, who was scouting the area for any sign of NoHead activity, happened to be nearby. He intervened and was able to rescue the party and drive off the thugs, who did not wish to contend with his might. Jaden Vang offered him a pay of 35 dollars for saving them, but Intelligence replied that he did not take charity for his heroics. Jonathan thanked Master Intelligence and, due to his current life, asked him if he could go with him to the MBH and be tested for joining the S.M.S.B. Intelligence already knew that Jonathan wanted to join and he was a child, filling in two of the three current guidelines. In response, the mutant asked him what his powers were. When Jonathan said he had no powers, the mutant shook his head, stating that only mutants could join. After saying goodbye to Jonathan, Intelligence also shook hands with the thugs and learned their names. After this, Intelligence finished scouting the area. The hunting party chose to turn back afterwards.
Rotta Hecks' Warning (2029)Edit
Master Intelligence also conversed with the ghosts of Rotta Hecks and Paige often, which he usually did in private. However, he did introduce Sebiscuits to them once, in 2029, and Sebiscuits apologized for murdering Paige. A few months later, they also warned him that the ghosts of Hell Burnbottom and Mr. Stupid NoHead were formulating a plot and would soon come back, with the help of two mutants they had went up against before.
Eve of War (2031)Edit
Master Intelligence was 14 years old when the NoHeads resurfaced. At that point he was still teaching the S.M.S.B. when Cynthia Thomas joined the group and took the name of Red X. He trained her along with the others, and personally helped her create her sword. However, he realized she did not always know what they were talking about, and as such arranged to personally tutor her later.
One night, Master Intelligence awoke at about three in the morning. He immediately sensed enemy movements outside his room. Grabbing his sword, which was in a drawer with a release switch, he left his room to search for any intruders and due to Whammo Fireball’s neglect, managed to locate Cygnus Evans. Still in his pajamas, Master Intelligence dueled him briefly. Cygnus called Whammo, who showed up and linked hands before Disapparating away from the MBH. Intelligence was highly eluded by this, and realized the NoHeads would return soon. The next morning, when everyone met together for their first class, he told them about what had happened. Later on, the S.M.S.B. made plates of their own, which they would later “have a delicious surprise supper on them”.
Third NoHead War (June 2031-May 2033) Edit
During the surprise supper, Lindsay Kellerman touched her plate and was mysteriously transported to Lioness graveyard. There, Lindsay was bound and a few of her hairs were taken as the final ingredient in a potion the Dark Lord used to return to full power. Using the plate, Lindsay was able to escape Hell Burnbottom and return to the MBH. In tears, Lindsay told him the NoHeads had returned. Master Intelligence was not surprised, but chose to conceal this from her.
After Lindsay’s warning, Master Intelligence continued teaching, even beginning a cooking class. Just after the group began to play dodgeball together, Sebiscuits had a vision predicting that only he could defeat Hell Burnbottom. Sebiscuits declared to Master Intelligence and Lindsay that he would risk his life to stop the NoHeads personally, and left the MBH in his skyfighter. Intelligence left with Lindsay, who returned to the gym. The leader of the S.M.S.B. went to meditate on the subsequent battle. He became devastated at the odds and quickly took action, rallying the other members in a desperate rescue mission.
Battle of Bast CastleEdit
Upon leaving for Bast Castle, the group was attacked by over 30 robotic fighters. Master Intelligence rode in his skyfighter, and he was attacked by multiple fighters and eventually Hell Burnbottom himself. Burnbottom, using his ability to fly, went straight for Master Intelligence. When the NoHead caught up with him, Intelligence fired the afterburners, blasting off toward Bast Castle. Burnbottom then went after Baby Strength and Red X, who were fighting side-by-side. Red X thought this was the end, but then her hand suddenly fired lightning at him, destroying his metal tube during the battle. Burnbottom prepared to attack Baby Strength, but Master Intelligence intervened and forced the antagonist to retreat. He then landed in the base, with Red X and all the skyfighters close behind.
When Hell Burnbottom and his army approached with a dead Sebiscuits, Master Intelligence screamed in horror and denial. However, Sebiscuits came back to life that very moment and jumped out of Hell Burnbottom’s arms. The Battle of Bast Castle soon resumed, and Master Intelligence fought in the following battle.
Tracking Lindsay to the construction site, he found her dueling Hell Burnbottom, but struggling. Subsequently an intense duel erupted between all three mutants; arguably the most powerful of their time. They all displayed a deep talent, though Burnbottom was forced to flee the battle after Intelligence imprisoned him within a dome of water. As Burnbottom fled, he briefly possessed Lindsay, hoping that Master Intelligence would sacrifice the teenager in an attempt to kill him. However, Red X arrived and hit Burnbottom with a fatal beam from his own weapon. Burnbottom did not survive the impact. Intelligence was pleased to learn Whammo Fireball and Cygnus Evans had both gone down as well. When everyone returned to the MBH, Master Intelligence had a talk with Lindsay and Red X. Eventually, he started a yearbook with Lindsay.
Rescue of George Thames (July 2033)Edit
In June 2033, Master Intelligence recovered the teleportation device after he found it in the dirt, presumably hidden. He subsequently used it to teleport into Bast Castle, hoping to see if anyone was captured and being held there. He rescued the two that he found, George Thames and Evans, subsequently saving them from starvation.
S.M.S.B.-Knights of Plague conflict (2038-2042)Edit
In 2035, Master Intelligence received wind that Nagatha had come back to life. Whilst trying to get to the bottom of it, Master Intelligence, alone, met the Gladiator for the first time. Realizing the Gladiator was too dangerous to be left alive, he drew his sword and attempted to cut him down, but to no avail, as the Gladiator Apparated away with Nagatha. Master Intelligence immediately realized it was the Gladiator who had brought Nagatha back from the dead.
Training Red X Edit
Throughout the year of 2036, Master Intelligence passed on certain pieces of information to Red X that would be important for the girl about the NoHeads, hoping to catch her up with the other members. Master Intelligence held private lessons with her.
Duel With The GladiatorEdit
Later on, Master Intelligence encountered the Gladiator. After calling Red X back, Master Intelligence engaged the Gladiator in a duel. The Gladiator, however, parried his initial attack and then tortured Master Intelligence and tried to possess him for good, but when it didn't work, he tried to murder him using his sword. The nature of their swords' mystical connection caused their swords to interlock with the first attack, which created an effect called Pitial Defilatelum (Bladelock Effect). After a battle of wills with the Gladiator, Master Intelligence was interceded by Red X, who blasted the Gladiator away. She then grabbed Master Intelligence's hand and they were able to escape.
When Alyssa Smith, who already knew she did not belong, discovered her powers, she immediately asked her parents if she could join the S.M.S.B., knowing this must be her destiny. That same day, Alyssa's father called in and asked if Alyssa could join the S.M.S.B. After packing up, her father drove her to the MBH and she asked if she could apply. Master Intelligence began testing her memory and knowledge, beginning by asking her several questions, such as why she wanted to join. He then gave her an IQ test and a social quiz of his own design. When she passed these, he began to test Alyssa’s abilities through several vigorous exercises, including an obstacle course. When Andromeda managed to complete these, her maturity was tested on a computer. Afterwards, she passed and was introduced to the other S.M.S.B. members. She also took the nickname of Andromeda.
Andromeda did her best to train with the other members, but she was quickly failing in the exercises. As such, Master Intelligence resolved to teach her alone. However, Andromeda proved herself after Nagatha attacked the MBH and she drove her off before killing her. Her spirits raised, Andromeda began to improve on the training exercises.
Battle of TransylvaniaEdit
Later, the S.M.S.B. would encounter a new villain called the Gladiator. At this point, Andromeda also joined the S.M.S.B. The S.M.S.B. members fought hard in two rounds of combat, but were eventually captured. The villain then proceeded to reveal an electric bomb with the capacity to destroy the entire continent once it was released. Red X asked Baby Strength to free her, as he had used his Super strength to break free himself. Baby Strength did this. The villain launched the bomb, but Red X leaped in front of it, causing it to hit her instead and sacrificing herself in the process. The bomb never got past her torso, but it gave her a slow, painful death. The villain did not have any more bombs to launch. In his fury, Master Intelligence was able to break out of his immobi rays and attack the villain, and quickly managed to defeat him. The Gladiator was later locked in a prison he himself had built to hold his enemies. Everybody regretted Red X's death, but as a result of it everybody else survived. Eventually, Master Intelligence buried Red X next to Paige.
Discovering Centauri Edit
After defeating the Gladiator, Master Intelligence returned to New York City full of bitter resentment at his situation, feeling trapped and wasted. Fortune finally shone on Intelligence in the form of Thomas Meyer, who was at the home of Myra Gordon to research the Sword of Abomination. Meyer was as talented as Master Intelligence was. Intelligence quickly became fascinated by Thomas’s ideas of domination, obviously considering Thomas an unexpected new chance to show his own brilliance and come out of the local misery. Eventually, Thomas joined the S.M.S.B. and took the name of Centauri. Intelligence regretted his relationship with Centauri later in life. They began a quest to locate the Sword and become its true masters.
Filming With Rocken RoleEdit
In 2051, Master Intelligence portrayed rock star Rocken Role in “Shipped to Hell”, a fictional film about Rocken Role and Rebecca Black becoming friends and having to escape hell together with Master Intelligence’s help that was from writer-director Gloria Sigismond. Master Intelligence met with Role over the 2060–2061 New Year to prepare for the role; he prerecorded songs in a studio for the film. The successful film also premiered at the 2062 Moonwalk Film Festival on 24 January 2062. Master Intelligence, Rocken Role, and Role’s partner Wesley Carrier appeared at the festival for the company’s promotion. Telekinibabe and Sebiscuits were also present here.
Master Intelligence received praise for his performance: the Metro Times wrote, “It turns out that Master Intelligence is actually really good at acting as well as crime-fighting. He excelled at capturing Role’s icy, tough-but-cool guy demeanor, adding the needed touches of childishness that transform it into a pretty terrific performance... Intelligence is a genuine star here.” Also, A. O. Scott of The New York Times noted “Master Intelligence, talented and unassuming, gives the movie its spine and soul, just like our town.” The same year, Master Intelligence was paid $10,000 for his movie role in 2061. He shared much of the money with the other members of the S.M.S.B., giving them 300 dollars each (leaving him with $8,200), telling them it’s “yours to do as you wish.” Stephanie, who had developed something of a crush on Master Intelligence, also remarked that “I always thought Master Intelligence was a badass, but this brings his swagger into a whole new light.” Master Intelligence was listed as the number 1 actor of the year by Billboard.
Force Baby Dies Edit
However, after two decades, Centauri began to question the reality of the S.M.S.B. He spoke to Master Intelligence about this, who tried to comfort him as they went to check on Baby Strength and Force Baby. Intelligence declared he no longer desired the Sword of Abomination, leading to a heated argument that Baby Strength eventually intervened in. Centauri reminded him that he planned to share the Sword of Abomination and world domination with him once both had been acquired. Intelligence then said he understood Centauri was turning to the dark side, refusing to help him any longer. Baby Strength whispered his suggestion to kill Centauri on the spot, and Intelligence told him off again. With that, Centauri lost control and drew his sword, displaying the “darker side” of his nature that Master Intelligence had always attempted to ignore or deny. Baby Strength drew his own weapon, but Intelligence originally turned away. Centauri then used lightning on Baby Strength until Intelligence pushed him away. Intelligence told Baby Strength to leave with Force Baby, but Baby Strength refused. A violent duel erupted between the three men.

After speed-glitching back to the scene, Centauri hurled Baby Strength aside and slammed Master Intelligence into the ceiling. Intelligence used a classic technique he had learned to cushion the impact before returning to the ground, only to intercept a cord of fire from Centauri. Intelligence dispelled the flames before whirling them into a fiery ring like mass, and sent them hurtling towards Centauri. Centauri likewise defended himself by causing the flames to disappear. Intelligence rushed at him, deflecting several death beams as he did, and threw Centauri to the ground. Centauri, however, threw him aside, to which Intelligence responded to by hurling a series of ropes at Centauri, binding him in moments. As Centauri tried to squeeze free, Intelligence drew his sword and held his new enemy at bladepoint, proclaiming he would take him to prison, but at that moment Baby Strength broke the ropes and declared Centauri had to die. The three duelists were counterpoised. As Force Baby watched in horror, they began to duel sword-to-sword. Centauri easily held off his enemies, then kicked Master Intelligence and hurled lightning at him. Master Intelligence countered with a torrent of energy from cuffs he was using, and the two energy attacks connected. Centauri broke the connection and fired a stun beam that incapacitated Baby Strength. He lunged at Master Intelligence, knocking him to the ground, but Intelligence knocked Centauri aside. Baby Strength recovered and brought his sword to attack, and the duel resumed.
When Centauri wounded Baby Strength, Master Intelligence was left to fight alone. Both of them immediately fired energy and lightning, and their attacks connected again. As the bolts locked together, Intelligence made one last attempt to reason with Centauri, but Centauri did not answer. He then hurled the tendrils into the wall, causing a small explosion where it hit and hurling both opponents to the ground. Force Baby himself tried to intervene in the fight, but couldn’t due to his erratic abilities, and in the ensuing chaos, Master Intelligence fired a torrent of energy from cuffs he was using, which the Dark Flame countered with lightning, and the bolts locked together. Force Baby used the Force to break the connection. However, the death beams rebounded into Force Baby, and he died. The blast had knocked Master Intelligence and Centauri unconscious; Intelligence awoke to see Baby Strength running to Force Baby’s corpse and crying in grief. No one knew whose curse it was that killed him, but Centauri fled immediately, as he already had a bad record back home, leaving the devastated Master Intelligence behind.
However, as Master Intelligence was educating the other S.M.S.B. members, the Dark Flame was still at large in America, building up an army, and had already found the Sword of Abomination, which he used to terrorize the continent.
Master Intelligence was renowned as an incredibly talented and reliable superhero, and was extremely famous for it. This was coupled with the fact that he was the Chosen One who would destroy the NoHeads. He drove off many criminals that Muggles could not dream of defeating and was idolized by thousands of people, including Sebiscuits, Jonathan, and Lindsay Kellerman. Intelligence also helped reform the police after Operation: Purge.
