- You worthless, good for nothing, wretched waste of space. You invent a time machine and think of anything useful to do with it?!
- -- Enid Clinton src
Enid Clinton was the wife of David Clinton, a professor at a college in the future era Gotham City who developed a time-traveling device called the Chronos Suit, enabling him to travel through time. He had been testing this device for months, stealing things from history that he knew would never be missed. Enid, who saw David as a perpetual loser, found him in the garage with the suit and the artifacts he has collected, but instead of congratulating him for his discovery, she berated him for his non-use of stealing valuable treasures, despite his warning that doing such would damage the timestream. When Enid finally chewed him out for developing a time travel device that he didn't know what to do with, David reacted by opening up a portal to travel into the past, saying he can use it to get away from her.
After his first encounter of the Justice League of the present time which stranded them in 1879 for a time, David quickly grabbed the Chronos Belt and opened a portal that brought him back to his own future time. While in that future time, besides stealing valuable historical buildings to place all over Gotham City, David also updated his Chronos Suit, now calling himself Chronos, and gave the Jokerz gang upgraded abilities and weapons for the purpose of protecting the Gotham City that he now ruled over as king in order to show his wife he could amount to something. However, much to Enid's chagrin, David had her mother trapped somewhere due to the displeasure of his wife actually agreeing with her opinions about himself.
The Justice League members followed Chronos into the future through the same time portal, only to be confronted with the Jokerz gang -- and some future-era heroes like Terry McGinnis, War Hawk, and an older Static giving their arrivals protection and assistance. However, Chronos discovered that Chucko had tipped off Terry McGinnis about the location of the arriving Justice League heroes and had him summarily punished by transporting him to the age of the dinosaurs just before a meteor caused their annihilation. After dismissing the rest of the Jokerz with the threat of also sending them there, David tried to enjoy some quiet time alone with his wife Enid, but eventually the feeling that nothing he ever did could please his wife got the better of him and soon left her to sleep alone in the Elkhorn prison cell that he placed inside a Roman coliseum.
When Enid brought the heroes to the place David was sleeping, he quickly transported the Jokerz gang to run as interference while time rifts began to open up and other anomalies appeared, such as French revolutionaries with muskets and a rampaging mammoth. Batman tried to get David's attention that the anomalies are causing history to erase itself. Realizing that he has the power to fix things, David created a portal to travel to the beginning of time where he could do a whole lot more, even become a god. Green Lantern and Batman followed David into the portal and grabbed him before he could reach the beginning of time, with Batman inserting a disc into the Chronos Belt that contained a program that would disable its power.
And the next thing David knew, he was back at the moment where his wife chewed him out for developing a time travel device that he didn't know what to do with, and every David reacted by trying to opening up a portal to travel into the past, it instead repeated that same moment...over and over and over.
