Tin is a liquid metal robot made of Tin with almost limitless shape shifting abbilities. He was designed by Dr. William Magnus a brilliant robotic expert along with along with five other robots Platinum, Mercury, Iron, Gold and Lead. These robots were known as the Metal Men.
Together, Tin 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.
Tin is the kind caring member of the group he has a terribly low self esteem and believes that he is not worth of being part of the Metal Men. He is however very brave and is happy to put his life on the line for his comrades. Tin suffers from a stammer bought on by his insecurity.
Tin created a girlfriend that was dubbed Nameless. At first rejected by the other Metal Men, but later officially joined the team after helping them on a mission. After several adventures, Nameless asked Doc Magnus to rebuild her into something beautiful. But something went wrong and Nameless was burned out and was left deactivated. Years later, Batman and the Metal Men found her the prisoner of Platinum Man. They freed her, and Nameless and Tin were married. However, a Missile Man working with Platinum Man, attacked them right after the ceremony wedding was over. Nameless sacrificed herself to save her friends and was destroyed in an explosion. Both Tin and the Platinum Man were left with their robot hearts broken.
