Cory Pitzner, also known as T.D.K. (short for The Detachable Kid), was a metahuman criminal with the ability to detach and remotely control his arms, which eventually came to embarrass him. T.D.K. was part of the Task Force X team sent to Corto Maltese to destroy Project Starfish.[1]

Through unknown circumstances, Cory Pitzner gained the ability to detach from his body and telekinetically control his arms and legs at will. He decided to use this unique ability to aid him in crime, becoming known as the Detachable Kid, or T.D.K. for short (likely out of embarrassment). However, he was apprehended and incarcerated in the Belle Reve Correctional Center, where he became a member of Task Force X.

Waller's distraction

In 2021, the Force was sent by A.R.G.U.S. director Amanda Waller on a mission to Corto Maltese to destroy evidence of the U.S. government's involvement in the creation of the powerful and dangerous Project Starfish. Lead by Rick Flag, T.D.K.'s team consisted of Harley Quinn, Savant, Captain Boomerang, Weasel, Javelin, Blackguard, and Mongal. Unbeknownst to the team, however, Waller had sent them as a distraction for the Maltese army so that her second Force strike team could invade without hindrance.

When the Force arrived on Maltese shores, they were betrayed by Blackguard, who had contacted the Maltese army to ambush the team. The two groups engaged in combat, and T.D.K. was called into action. He detached his arms, to the horror and bewilderment of his teammates, and sent them flying towards some soldiers, but only managed to slap them a few times. The soldiers shot his arms to pieces, as well as Pitzner himself, who shortly after choked to death on his own blood.[1]


  • T.D.K. detaches his arms

    Removable Limbs: T.D.K. can painlessly detach his arms and legs from his body easily and at will, which he can use to distract, bewilder, and physically beat his enemies with like a club. In addition, he can telekinetically control his detached limbs. It is not known if he can reattach his limbs or if he must regrow them.
