It's really more down to the design than the material, with the right design and quality of assembly a good bike can be built out just about any material. There area still some questions about carbon frames resistance to impact though, so for something like all-mountain where falls are fairly frequent and the need for a really light ride isn't as pressing you might want to go with another frame material instead.

I don't think you can pin point a single inventor for that. MTB riding started with regular bikes that got more and more modified for the special kind of riding every time they broke and had to be fixed.

It became the first purpose built MTB, but it was only one example in a long line of similar looking bikes.
