Caleb was a student with cerebral palsy, a photographic memory and a naturally high intelligence on a partial scholarship at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), where he studied nano-technology while simultaneously moonlighting as data engineer for a major computer corporation.

Story notes:

  • Invented a way of Manufacturing nanomachines assembled from molecular components
  • claiming his work to be derived from their own research and being propriete to their company
  • executives used his invention to make themselves exceptionally wealthy,
  • arson attack that destroyed his lab and all of his equipment
  • tries to restore his harddrives and recover his research, he finds traces of hacking that lead back to the corporation he works for
  • using his expert computer skills he hacked into both the univerity's and the company's computer systems, where he discovered a farreaching conspiracy toemploying his tech for nefarious purposes
  • after eliminating any link to his past life and threatening the life of his mother
  • blackmailed into ?!
  • Surviving an assassination attempt ?!
  • he infused his body with nanites
  • becoming a full-time hacker,  corporate spy and cyber activist

After being caught by authorities while hacking into the pentagon and imprisoned in a high-security black site facility, he was approached by the "The W.E.B. Foundation", and promised his freedom with a clean criminal record in exchange for his expertise in building the most advanced computer network in the world.

With the help of the his benefactors he was eventually able to clear his name and bring the men responsible for ... to justice. He now works as CTO of the covert W.E.B. network that provides financial, logistical and technological support to spider-themed heroes all over the world.

Personality & Character Traits

Caleb is a huge nerd and rightfully proud of it.

Powers & Abilities

POWERS

  • Blood Nanites: His bloodstream is primed with nanites; tiny machines controlled by his will, which allow him to interface directly with machines and transform his mind into electronic/digital data, enabling him to enter the digital world and become in essence a living wireless hub with the processing power of a quantum computer.
  • Electronic Communication:  The nanines in his blood allow him to see/sense the data-stream around the world and enable him to perceive, understand, control and generate electronic, digital, and radio transmissions invisible to normal humans.
  • Cyberpathy: While in digital form he can can interact with the digital plane freely and without limitand travel through the simulated reality of cyberspace where the rules of the real world don't apply. Here he can manipulate binary computer informations as he wishes and bypass any level of online security or hack through the most difficult mainframes without effort. This enables him to
    • access the internet and manipulate its protocols, its structure, the world wide web, communication, and data transfer
    • accumulate all the data in the internet
    • spread viruses
    • interact with objects such as machines, robots, computers, as long as they're connected to the “Internet of Things”, the network of physical objects, or connected to each other through any number of other devices
  • Nanite Knowledge: The nanites are a vast repository of information, and can literally store the knowledge of every book on earth. By absorbing data into his own consciousness, he can not only collect informations about people, businesses and organizations and their operations but also learn new skills such as a foreign language, or mastery of a fighting style in a split second and gain knowledge that allows him to immediately operate incredibly complex devices and weapons in the real world.
  • Digital Immortality: Although his digital mind is vulnerable to electrical and magnetic manipulation and can be destroyed through things like electromagnetic pulses, he can also always completely restore himself as long as one bit of his data remains stored on a computer drive, smart phone, etc.
  • Physical Enhancement & Protection: Caleb can manifest a suit of exo-armor made of sentient nano-bytes that covers his physical body from within the structures of his body with a single thought. The suit is nearly indestructible yet still very agile and if it is damaged, it is absorbed back into Charlys body then manifests brand new again.

ABILITIES

  • Expert Computer Scientist: Caleb is proficient with technology of all kinds and extremely proficient with computers.
  • Expert Computer Hacker: Caleb is one of the best computer hacker with skills that are rivaled by almost none, which enables him to easily dismiss firewalls and breach the highest security systems with ease.
  • Photographic Memory: Caleb perfectly remembers everything he experiences and can instantaneously retrieve every memory and any information he has ever perceived.

Weaknesses

  • Computer viruses, worms and trojans are a mildy annoyancem.
  • Without his suit, his physical body suffers from cerebral palsy.

Paraphernalia

EQUIPMENT

  • Thousands of tiny machines/robots called "Nanites".
