The original "Schizoid Man" is Chip Martin, a graduate student who suffers from psychological instability and has the power of building and animating solid constructs with his mind.His father is Senator Robert Martin, who was once suspected of being the Hobgoblin.
Chip and Lectronn engaged in a three hour fight over New York that ended in a stalemate.
Afterwards, Schizoid Man joined Vil-Anon, a twelve-step program dedicated to helping individuals overcome their criminal tendencies.
After the Avengers/X-Men conflict the Raft was damaged and numerous super-criminals were sent to another prison, unfit to store such individuals. A riot exploded, and Schizoid Man was a key in the brawl, even if he was trying to get control over himself, until he was defeated by Rogue.
