"I'm no hero. I'm a husband, and if this is the end then I have to be with my wife and kid. I'm sorry."
—Ryan Choi [src]

On the Earth of Earth-1, Dr. Ryan Choi was a former physics professor, the husband of Amanda, and the father of Simone. On the Earth of Earth-Prime, he is the father of Simone. He is the Paragon of Humanity, and was one of the seven known living individuals to have survived the destruction of the original multiverse, along with Barry Allen, Kate Kane, Kara Danvers, Sara Lance, J'onn J'onzz, and Lex Luthor, until they recreated the multiverse with the help of Oliver Queen.

Biography

Original multiverse

Early life

At some point, he married Amanda and together, and they would conceive a daughter named Simone.[1]

Anti-Monitor Crisis

On December 10, 2019, six months after Simone birth, Ryan was in Ivy Town on the phone with his wife when he was approached by Ralph Dibny, Iris West-Allen, and Dr. Ray Palmer (who Ryan was a big fan of). The three explained that they were there because Ryan was meant to be the Paragon of Humanity, one of seven heroes who could save the multiverse from being destroyed by the Anti-Monitor. Ryan does not believe them at first and decides to leave to be with his wife and daughter. Iris eventually convinces him to help, and he is brought aboard the Waverider. Once back on the waverider, the heroes are greeted by Harbinger, who has returned after mysteriously disappearing. Pariah also appears and the heroes realize that Harbinger's return is a trap by the Anti-Monitor, who proceeds to kill Mar Novu and destroy Earth-1. Knowing what must be done, Pariah sends the 7 Paragons to the Vanishing Point where the Anti-Monitor can't reach them as the waverider is destroyed and remaining heroes killed by the antimatter wave. At the vanishing point, the paragons witness Superman disappear and be replaced by Lex Luthor who used the Book of Destiny to make himself the Paragon of Truth.[1]
