Rex Mason, a soldier for hire, was contracted by Simon Stagg to find the Orb of Ra. When he found it, his cohort, Java, stole it and left Rex in the light of an ancient meteor. This meteor transformed Mason into Metamorpho, the Element Man.
Metamorpho has always been one of my favorite heroes. He’s got that weird/cool 60’s look and interesting powers. So, take a listen to the Metamorpho theme song and let it brighten your day as well.
