Considered the greatest American genius since the days of Mr. Terrific, Edwin Gauss became the youngest graduate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His goal was to finish what Einstein had failed to do the Unified Field Theory. Leeching off of electronics mogul Norman Bridges, he built a suit which enabled him to travel between dimensions, into the second and fourth dimensions. Bridges, however, claimed ownership of Gauss's suit, and has kept in hot pursuit of the genius, who is virtually unstoppable while wearing the suit as the Folded Man.


Folded Man is one of the escapees shown following the events after Captain Cold broke free and escaped Iron Heights. Iris West is cornered by Folded Man, alongside fellow inmates Girder and Heatwave. They plan to take her hostage as "insurance", however Barry Allen (as the current Flash) speeds in and saves the day.

One notable difference in Folded Man's design is that his grey exoskeleton seems stitched into his actual flesh, instead of being a removable costume.
