Gifted Master’s student Dick Martin had been conducting private research into high voltage electricity well ahead of both his peers and his professors at the University of Illinois since his late teens. Over the course of his studies, his body had mysteriously developed the ability to store and redirect current. His abilities, however, remained unknown to him until early 1942.
After being unjustly accused of murder, he was found guilty and sentenced to death by electrocution in the electric chair. Instead of dying, Martin absorbed the massive electrical current and, before the stunned guards could react, he blasted his way to freedom. Once he had cleared his name, he decided to use his newfound powers to fight crime.
As the Allies made their way towards the heart of Hitler’s Fortress Europa, Hitler retreated to his bunker to regroup. A select group of so-called “mystery men” including Pyroman were sent into Berlin to capture Hitler and his generals but were caught in a mystical maelstrom conjured by sorcerer Rudolf von Sebottendorf, leader of the enigmatic Thule-Gesellschaft (English: The Thule Society). Martin awoke to find himself in an alternate dimension in which he had never existed.
