Lee worked with his father at an auto salvage yard in the town of Piedmont and helped his parents take care of his autistic younger brother Seth. When ma and pa Laroquette were killed in a house fire, Lee took on the responsibility of minding Seth. His life became a living hell and his social life became non-existent, until he noticed Seth’s interest and surprising talent for stripping cars. With this bond the two brothers lived and worked together in peace and happiness until a gang moved into Piedmont and began to systematically take over through intimidation. Seth, who was a die-hard fan of comic books, tried over and over to convince Lee to do something about the menace, but Lee saw nothing he could do. But one day, tragedy struck. Seth attempted to stop a store robbery and was shot for his trouble. Now without the most important thing in his life, Lee finally felt the drive to make a difference. He constructed a suit composed of re-inforced automobile parts and became the hero Auto. Though the first few days were bumpy at best, Lee was eventually able to drive out the gang and restore peace to his town. He now dons the Auto armor rarely, when he sees a need for a hero.
