Chase Davenport is one of the three main protagonists of the Lab Rats franchise. He is the smartest of the four super humans. Chase is the self-proclaimed mission leader of his siblings. Besides heightened intelligence, Chase has bionic senses, the ability to create force fields, and use molecularkinesis. It was also shown in Bionic Showdown that he can levitate. His most used ability (besides super intelligence) in season 4 is his Laser Bo. He is portrayed by Billy Unger.
While he was tolerable in the first two seasons of Lab Rats, he was horribly flanderized in season 3 and 4 and in Elite Force.
Why He's Not The Smartest Anymore
- The main problem with seasons 3 and 4 and Elite Force is that Chase changes from a uptight control freak with a heart of gold to a short-tempered, egotistical and power-hungry perfectionist in the later episodes of Bionic Island and Elite Force.
- In keeping with his Insufferable Genius traits, Chase hardly ever admits to making mistakes, instead blaming others for not following his orders correctly.
- He doesn't get the concept of superpowers despite being a bionic superhuman. This is understandable, because bionic abilities are derived from technology while superpowers are a phenomenon that defy reason.
- Almost everyone who's ever wanted to be his friend has ended up having ulterior motives, which is a major factor in his inferiority complex.
- Marcus was working for Douglas, Sebastian was planning a rebellion and needed access to passwords and his chip schematics.
- Reese just needed to get to Mission Control to download the superhero list. These are basically all of the people he's ever been friends with who weren't on a mission team with him.
- He has a tendency to yell a lot, especially when he states things matter-of-factly or overreacts which gets annoying.
- He's also pretty whiny, childishly petty and arrogant, while it can be funny in earlier seasons however it's overused in season 3 up until Elite Force.
- He became more egotistical and cocky.
- He doesn't treat many people with respect especially Adam and he has major temper issues.
- He has very little character development throughout season 4 and in the spin-off series.
- He often bullies Adam, It seems like he insults him just to make himself look good.
- His humor is weak and mean-spirited.
- He can be very bossy.
- He often dosen't get along with other people.
- He's always picked on for his inability to get girls or for being short. By Elite Force, he gets more respect, but at Oliver's expense.
- He has lackluster chemistry with the Elite Force team, though it gets better over the course of season 1.
- He was a much better character in the first two seasons.
- He can be funny and have some funny jokes here and there.
- Deep down still he loves and cares for his family and friends.
- He has a good brothership with Adam and even when they fight, they always make up and fix their mistakes to strengthen their brothership.
- He does have his kind and decent moments.
- He has many funny moments.
- Billy Unger still portrayed him very well in the series as the main role.
