Hindsight for Champions

''We don't know where our teammates have gone - but we do know who did it - and in that we also know why - because the Sphinx is terrified that the Warriors would tear his little house of cards down around his ankles! Well he made a mistake in considering Hindsight Lad unworthy of his attention - because if it's a team of Warriors that the Sphinx is afraid of - and a team of Warriors that is needed to bring our friends back home - then it is a team of Warriors which we will create!'' - Hindsight in New Warriors #48.

Explanation of the conversion: Hindsight is more a support character then a player character.

History: Carlton was a classmate and neighbor of Robbie Baldwin, also known as Speedball the Masked Marvel. After discovering Robbie's secret identity he blackmailed Speedball into allowing him to join the New Warriors as Hindsight Lad. He designed a silly hero costume and tagged around for a while assisting in administrative work.

When the New Warriors team was abducted by the Sphinx and placed in various times in the past, Carlton was instrumental in organizing a new line-up of New Warriors to rescue them. The new team consisted of Dagger, Darkhawk, Hindsight Lad, Powerpax and Turbo and was led by Night Thrasher's half-brother Bandit (New Warriors #48).

The original team was successfully rescued and Carlton was made a full time member, but restricted to non-combat duties. After realizing he needed to grow up a bit he designed a second costume and changed his heroic name to Hindsight.

Trivia: The American Heritage Dictionary defines hindsight as ''Understanding of events after their occurrence.''

Powers: Although he has no super powers, Hindsight is a tactical analysis specialist. He also researches information for his fellow Warriors, maintains the facilities at the Crash Pad, budgets resources and orders pizza after missions. On occasion he designs costumes and invents code names for new members.
