Together, Mercury and the Metal Men embarked on a variety of adventures, their specialty fighting monsters spawned from weird science. Though the Metal Men were repeatedly destroyed, Magnus was always able to rebuild them.
Mercury is the hothead of the group, he is confrontational and regularly gets into scraps with the rest of the group especially Platinum. He feels his talents are not truly recognized and think that he should be leader of the Metal Men.
