David Wist was a watch repairman who wanted to become part of Frenchy Day's criminal gang, but he was always denied a chance, deemed as useless for the crimes. Wist went out to perform a crime by himself, but he was involved in an accident on a nuclear-fission plant, after which he gained magnetic powers. Wist adopted the costumed identity of the criminal known as The Human Magnet and started a crime spree across Gotham City. His reign of terror ended when Batman found a way to stop Wist, by locking his hands together as they were charged with opposite electric field forces.

Powers

  • Electromagnetism: The Human Magnet is able to repel and attract metallic objects using the different magnetic charges on his hands.

Abilities

  • Mechanical Aptitude: Wist worked as a watch repairman and often provided his services as safe cracker for the criminal element of Gotham.
  • This version of Human Magnet, including all history and corresponding appearances, was initially erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985-86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. However the ending of Convergence retroactively prevented that collapse, saving all the alternate realities, though in an "evolved" form. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
