"Could Sell an igloo to an eskimo"
Ravi Beshear has always been the kind of guy that could talk his way into or out of anything.  
After finding himself working for a start-up company, Damage Control Inc., cleaning up the Five Burroughs after the alien invasion that the Avengers defeated, when his crew came across what was assumed to be unexploded Chitauri ordinance.  Moments after locating the strange device his whole brain seemed to catch on fire and then he passed out.
He awoke up at a Simon Innovations facility in Los Angeles to discover he had been in a coma for 11 months.  He was the lucky one though, as the other two members of the crew, Jenna Lowell and Lilian Clay hadn't made it.  They both suffered a  subdural hematoma after being exposed to the device and passed away within hours.
While Ravi was glad to be alive, he had a long period of rehabilitation and had to relearn how to walk.  During one of his rehab sessions, his frustration got the best of him and a concussive blast emanated from his right hand, shattering one of the facility's huge windows--a shatterproof window designed to withstand an earthquake.
It was then that he learned that a CRT had picked up some abnormal brain scans while he was comatose.
He's remained with Simon Innovations and became their first recruit to the Force Works project.  
In many ways Ravi is the heart of the team, he's likable, smart, and never stops lightening the mood.  A trait that is required more and more.
