Heinrich Melch was a soldier in Nazi Germany whose father was charged with developing a plan to stop the Superman native to their Earth.
- This version of Automan, 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.
- Years later on Earth-One, when Superman of Earth-One created the Powerman robot, he based its costume on Atoman, whom he had subconsciously seen thanks to extra-dimensional interference as Melch recovered from his near death battle with the Earth-Two Superman during World War II.
