Albert Michaels was a S.T.A.R. Labs scientist on a submarine, when an accident resulted in a flooding of the submarine and it crashing to the ocean floor. Michaels escaped, but not without being exposed to the experimental radiation on the submarine. He emerged from the depths and swam to a nearby island. On the island, he relived memories of a lost lover. He survived eating native vegetation, but soon, as a result of a leopard attack, discovered he could emit radiation from his mouth, and disintegrates the cat. He then used his power to animals on the island and create shelter from rock faces. Eventually, the radiation took a toll on him, as he also began to recall his fiance flirting with another man at a dance club and Michaels had murdered the object of her flirtations. He also recalled leaving on the S.T.A.R. submarine. As a result of his recollection, he angrily destroyed a large part of the island with his radiation blast. The wear on his face caused by the radiation resulted in his face melting away from his skull.

He clashed with Superman and was jailed, but was later given a job with the Metropolis Special Crimes Unit and helped Superman apprehend Shockwave.[1]
