Preston Lindsay was a junior high school student from Manchester, Alabama.

He grew up in a poor family and suffered tremendous abuse at the hands of his mentally ill mother, Susan. Preston attended Manchester Junior High School where he became best friends with new student Bart Allen. Bart learned about Preston's violent home life and helped Susan Lindsay get the help that she so desperately needed.

Despite Preston's strong friendship with Bart, he never came to discover that Bart led a double life as Manchester's resident teen super-hero Impulse.

Preston was an avid movie enthusiast, and considered himself an amateur filmmaker. Along with his friends — Bart, Mike, Wade and Rolly — Preston created his very own amateur feature film based on Impulse.

Preston's friendship with Bart ended when Bart moved to Denver and began serving with the third incarnation of the Teen Titans.
