Martin was a student under Andrew Bryant at Central Tech, where he was accidentally exposed to an electrical current from a dynamo that was being tested. It was only the special "neutralized current" being used that kept him from being killed.[1]

He was later framed for, and found guilty, of murder. He was sentenced to die in the electric chair. The chair failed to kill him, it instead gave him the electrical powers that he used to track down the people who framed him. Using an old masquerade costume, he debuted as Pyroman.
