Carter Nichols was a childhood friend of Thomas Wayne. At some point he became interested in time travel. His first attempt to use his research involved hypnotizing PTSD patients at Willowood Military Hospital, so they could relive their traumas and move past them.
However, he was contacted by a man known as Simon Hurt, who proposed a wager - he required Nichols's prototype timebox for a questionable ritual, and in return for Nichols's compliance, Hurt would give him whatever he needed to test his theories and open time up to human use. Nichols agreed, but after Nichols hesitated during the ritual, allowing the amnesiac victim of the ritual to escape through time, Hurt arranged that Nichols would never be taken seriously as a scientist.
Years later, Nichols became involved in a number of Batman's adventures.
In the wake of the Final Crisis, Nichols body showed up in Gotham, strangely aged. It became the focus of one of the Batman's strangest cases, as across time, multiple bearers of the cowl worked on the same case, in complete ignorance of one another.
