Genetic Mix: Human (mostly)
Ed possesses the most brilliant brain on the planet. Unfortunately, the only other body part which he (Ed thinks of himself as a “he” even though he possesses no identifiable gender) is a foot that he uses both for locomotion and to sense the world. For crying out loud, even if he’d been given a hand instead of a foot, at least he’d have an opposable thumb to work with, but noooooo. The scientist had some leftover parts and a little spare time to kill, and never bothered to see if Ed was alive before discarding him. Don’t worry about Ed, though. He’s so brilliant that it’s likely that he’ll be able to find a way to overcome his physical challenges and may one day conquer the world!
