The son of Alan Scott (Green Lantern I) and Rose Forrest (Thorn I), Todd Rice and his twin sister Jennie-Lynn were abandoned to foster care with different parents after their mother, who married Scott under an assumed name, abandoned them for fear that her split personality would surface and attempt to kill them.
Each of the twins developed super-human abilities and first meet weeks before they applied for membership to the newly reformed Justice Society. Their reunion would lead to the revelation that the twins were the offspring of the hero Green Lantern and the villainous Thorn.
Obsidian and his sister (Jade) would join other young heroes in forming Infinity Inc. In time the mental affliction of Rice's mother would begin to affect him and he would turn against his father and his allies in the Justice Society.
