Marcus Reed was a student at Dakota Union High School.
He was an ex-boyfriend of Tamara Lawrence. According to her, he had a "nasty temper". After coming out of juvie hall, he tried to get his life back on track, but was constantly kept short by the prejudice of others. When a strong Bang Baby entered the scene and attacked several locations and people that had done Marcus wrong in the past, he was again the first to be suspected. However, it turned out it was actually Tamara, who bore a grudge from his breaking up with her on the night of the Big Bang. The frame-up was eventually revealed by Static.
