— NeoCortex to Kaz and Oliver

NeoCortex is a superhero on Mighty Med.

History

He came to visit Mighty Med cause he hurt his shoulder when he fell out of his chair after watching a funny squirrel video. He was asked by Oliver to make him more like Kaz, which he did. But when it came time to switch him back, Oliver didn't want to so he reflected his mind blast and accidentally overloaded his brain, causing him to almost explode. Fortunately, they were able to cure him before he exploded and he then changed Oliver back to normal. He was turned evil by Skylar.
