Kirt Niedrigh is a super-powered figure in the 30th Century who has been an enemy and later member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. His power allows him to absorb the powers of others. Originally he used the name Absorbency Boy when applying for the Legion, but was rejected. He posed as the super-villain Zoraz to fight them and prove his mettle, but was rejected again. He later reappeared as Earth-Man, xenophobic leader of the Justice League of Earth dedicated to killing aliens. Following this, he was selected for membership in the Green Lantern Corps, where he became a Legionnaire and ultimately redeemed himself in death. Kirt Niedrigh was created by Cary Bates and Mike Grell, first appearing in Superboy #218. (1976)
