Synch could duplicate the powers and abilities of nearby mutants (and perhaps other super-humans) by synchronizing his aura with theirs. When using his powers, a multi-colored aura appeared around his body as a result of the energies he absorbed splitting the ambient light around him. Synch was also able to track other mutants by allowing his aura to lock on to bio-signatures. His aura would then extend in the general direction in which the mutant was located. The powers and abilities Synch duplicated faded some time after the superhuman he was in synch with left his vicinity. It had been theorized that, with practice, Synch would have been able to permanently retain powers and abilities he acquired in this manner.
Everett Thomas grew up as a straight-A student in St. Louis, Missouri. Everett didn't realize, but he possessed an aura which allowed him to synch up with other superhumans in his immediate vicinity, thereby briefly gaining any powers they possessed.
At one point, Thomas was kidnapped by the techno-organic alien race the Phalanx who had assimilated the X-Men and attempted to wipe out what was to be the next generation of mutant heroes: Husk, Jubilee, M, and Blink. Synch had accidentally synched to Banshee, who was in the area, and had shattered all the windows in his area with Banshee's "borrowed" scream. He didn't know how he did it, but the next thing he knew there was a slew of police officers with guns pointed at him. Luckily, he was saved thanks to the help of the X-Men.

After their rescue, Thomas and the other youths were all relocated to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters in the re-opened Massachusetts Academy branch). Here they were trained to use their powers, received a formal education, and acted as the next generation of X-Men, Generation X. Thomas was codenamed "Synch" as a result of his mutant ability. While at the Academy, Synch quickly became popular with his teammates, and formed particularly close bonds to Jubilee and Skin. Eager to learn more about his powers, he spent his time at the Academy pushing himself as far as he could go. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the team, places, and/or character.)
One day, the team was attacked by the energy vampire known as Emplate, who transformed Synch into a creature like him--forced to feed on the bone marrow of mutants for survival. Emplate sent Synch to his home in St. Louis, where he attempted to turn his family into creatures like himself and Emplate. However, due to a combination of his own reluctance to bring harm to people he loved, and the assistance of his teammates who came to help him, Synch was ultimately able to fight off Emplate’s influence. (To learn about Emplate, just click on the highlighted name above.)
After this, Synch began a relationship with his team-mate M. He became one of the few people she would open up to.
Later on, Adrienne Frost stirred up mutant hatred amongst the human students in the school. When the parents of the non-mutant students heard that their children were going to school with mutants, they all arrived together to take their children away from the Academy, causing a riot. However, Adrienne Frost had also planted bombs all around the school. Upon learning this, Banshee and Synch set out to turn off and deactivate bombs. Upon finding a bomb that was near human students, Everett "synched" with the nearest mutant, M. However, M was too far away, so he only received a portion of her powers--her super strength. Using all his might, he threw the human kids out of the room, saving them from the explosion. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to save himself; thus, sacrificing himself to save his human peers.

Recently, Synch was revived with an alien techno organic virus to serve as part of Selene's army of deceased mutants. Under the control of Selene and Eli Bard, he takes part in the assault on the mutant nation of Utopia. Synch's fate is uncertain as it is unknown whether he was among the mutants teleported to Genosha by Blink to serve as a sacrifice to the newly-godlike Selene or whether he was among the mutants that managed to escape Utopia.
