Timothy Wilkerson (Earth-616)

As Prodigy

He later discovered that the real cause of his condition was his mother taking heroin while she was pregnant.

Prodigy and the rest of the Gamma Corps were attacked by a haywire Hulk A.I., who wanted to kill them as part of the plan of the original Hulk to neutralize every Gamma-powered mutate from the Earth, even though the original Hulk's plan didn't include lethal force. After following the haywire A.I. to Fort Knox, Hulk saved the Gamma Corps from their deaths, but later stripped them of their powers.[1]
