Carter Nichols lived in Gotham City in the dimensional reality commonly referred to as Earth-Two. An exact counterpart to Professor Nichols likewise existed on Earth-One, and shared the exact same personality and background. No distinction is to be made between the Earth-One and Earth-Two versions of this character.

Professor Nichols was a respected scientist living in Gotham City who developed a means of displacing physical bodies into the time stream by way of hypnosis. His procedure earned him the attention of Gotham's resident crime fighters, Batman and Robin, who often relied upon the Professor's genius in order to solve crimes involving time travel. In several instances, Professor Nichols also used his technique to send the Kryptonian hero, Superman, backwards through time.

After years of experimentation, Nichols made a scientific breakthrough when he actually developed a Time-Ray. No longer requiring the power of hypnosis to accomplish his goals, he could now transmit bodies of matter backwards and forwards through time with his new invention.
