Tex Thompson was a crimefighter who disappeared from the American eye in 1942 to fight the Nazi threat from within. He killed the German superhero Parsifal and Adolf Hitler himself. He returned to America a hero and becomes a senator with presidential aspirations. He organized a program to defend America from the Soviet menace with a new group of superheroes. He rallied the Atom, Robotman, and Daniel Dunbar to his cause. He used a group of scientists to transform Dunbar into Dynaman, "a super-hero for the new age."
The heroes of the story discover that Tex Thompson had actually been killed in the war. The man who returned was actually the Ultra-Humanite. The Ultra-Humanite told Hitler that Thompson was a spy, so they killed him and put Ultra's brain into Thompson's body. The experiment which created Dynaman was actually the Humanite putting Hitler's brain in Dunbar's body. Ultra-Humanite was stopped by Manhunter, who had witnessed the operation, but suffered from memory loss after hitting his head trying to escape.
Once transformed into a superpowered being, Dynaman was groomed to assist Thomson when he becomes president of the United States. The plot is revealed by the JSA, who fought him in a massive battle where many lost their lives. After being softened up by Green Lantern, Dynaman was finally killed by Liberty Belle.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Invulnerability; flight; superhuman strength: concussive power blasts from his fists.
His invulnerability was limited only by his stamina. During his fight with the various Golden Age superheroes, Dynaman was worn down and weakened to the point where he lost some teeth, and was pierced through by a broken piece of Starman's experimental cosmic rod, its energy electrocuting him to death.
