Early Life


"Time's Man of the Year? Wired's Visionary? Give me a break.
"You don't know shit about sh...!"
"Say it again."
"You don't shit about..."
Victor Stein and Chase Stein[src]

Chase Stein was born in 2000 to Victor Stein and Janet Stein. After his birth, Victor was given the child by a nurse, brought to awe and briefly spoke with the nurse before returning to Janet's side. Lost of words, Janet completed Victor's sentence on Chase is everything to them. Victor told Janet that nothing else in the world mattered except Chase, stating he finally understood what everyone meant by that saying.[2]

Chase picked up after the championship.

Chase had a troubled childhood, resenting his father for the abuse he gave to his mother and him. Additionally, Chase was ignored by Victor, who was more focused on his work than anything else. One day, Victor promised Chase that he would make it to the city championship to see him play, but failed to do so. Chase won and received the trophy, waiting for his father to take him home. In the car, Victor noted his son's resentment, asking him what was wrong. Chase told him he didn't make it and mocked the idea that his father for being considered a visionary. Victor ordered his son to stop, but Chase cursed at him, leading to his father to punch him. Stunned, Chase cursed at him again when he dared him to say it again, leading him to get punched once more.[2]

On the in eighth grade, Chase and Gert were astronomy partners, with Gert making most of the stargazing because Chase spent the entire time playing Candy Crush and flirting with Eiffel.[5]

Chase Stein is a popular student at Atlas Academy and a valued player on the school's lacrosse-team. This causes many to assume he's one of the "jocks" and therefore of low intelligence. Much to the contrary however, Chase has exceptional talent with engineering in a similar fashion to his successful father, Victor Stein.


"How is it that you know all this, but you've never gotten above a B- in calculus?"
"Calc's boring. I like practical applications."
Victor Stein and Chase Stein[src]
  • Expert Engineer: Despite lacking formal training as a full-fledged engineer, Stein's interest and natural potential toward engineering allowed him to design a piece of advanced technology that he called Fistigons. However, in order to transform his prototype into a full-working version, he needed his father's help to transform his ideas into practical functions for the engine.
"He hasn't laid a finger on you in a while now."
"Yeah, 'cause he knows if he tried, I'd kick his ass."
Janet Stein and Chase Stein[src]
  • Combatant: Stein began training in boxing techniques after receiving abuse from his father. He was able to defend the unconscious Karolina Dean from sexual assault at a house party[6], and was confident in his ability to defeat his father[7]. His upper body strength from playing lacrosse attributes to his fighting ability, as he left one of Dean's attackers with a broken rib.
