Nathaniel Tryon, known by his alias Neutron, was a mercenary sent to kill Lex Luthor at LexCorp. Neutron botched the job, though, and accidentally released Luthor's Amazo Virus into Metropolis. [1]

Neutron was housed in LexCorp while the Justice League handled the virus. Without his ability to absorb radiation, Neutron developed multiple cancer tumors across his body. Neutron was left bedridden until Luthor attempted to cure his cancer before the Darkseid War begun. [2]



  • Cancer: When Neutron was affected by the Amazo Virus, it disabled his ability to harness radiation, instead turning it into multiple deadly tumors across his body. [3] Lex Luthor tried to cure him but was interrupted by the beginning of the Darkseid War. [4]
