the hired inventor

anonymous asked:

What are the Inverter and Terror-Vision's backstories?

Thanks for this Anon. I love you.
The Inverter started out as a regular inventor for hire for many Villains at the age of 15, due to them blowing up their family home and being kicked out by their family. Over time there were a lot of Villains not paying them back for the inventions and Heroes were desperate to stop these Villains. So, they made a deal with Heroes that they pay them a good amount of money they will make something for the Heroes to stop these Villains. Due to how them being such a recluse, they were given the name The Inverter, by a Hero who didn’t know how to spell, but ended up liking the error. They are a fairly well known, and fall under the moral gray zone, They help whoever has the most money to offer them.

Due to Them not wanting friends due to their line of work and having a lack in trust in anyone, at the age of 19 they made truly the best thing they have ever made, Terror-Vision. Terror-Vision was made to be their substitute for human friendship, and also their bodyguard in case  a deal when sideways. Terror-Vision is very social being and enjoys going out and having fun, having an extensive knowledge in memes but also if under a threat or in a dangerous situation will became your worst nightmare. TV expresses themselves by their screen. 


The Winchester Wetmore-Wells single action revolver,

During the 19th century Winchester and Colt for the most part tried not to step on each other’s toes, Winchester manufacturing rifles and Colt manufacturing pistols.  In 1872 Winchester hired inventor William W. Wetmore to design a single action revolver.  By 1873, the design was completed and a number of prototypes produced.  The Whitmore Wells was chambered for a .50-38 cartridge and featured six shots.  The main feature of the revolver was an automatic ejection system.  When the hammer was cocked and extractor system incorporated into the loading gate which would extract empty cartridge casings.  In case the automatic extractor failed, a manual extractor was also installed in the form of a lever near the hammer.

The main problem with the Wetmore Wells was that both the automatic and manuals extraction systems tended to malfunction.  Without an ejector rod, it was difficult to remove empty casings.  In 1873 Colt began manufacturing the Colt Model 1873 Single Action Army, which became the most popular American revolver in the 19th century. The M1873 was much more reliable and was chambered in a popular cartridge (.44-40) which was the same cartridge used in the equally popular Winchester M1873 lever action rifle.  More importantly the Colt M1873 had a reliable extraction system consisting of a simple ejection rod.  Winchester would continue work on the Wetmore Wells design, abandoning it later in the decade.
