Atomic Skull (02 - Joseph Martin)
Real Name: Joseph Martin
Search for 'Atomic Skull (02 - Joseph Martin)' on Amazon


Bio:
Student Joseph Martin was struck by an intense blast of energy from the Dominators' gene-bomb that gave him superhuman strength and premature baldness. Later attacked by some thugs, the resulting head damage caused insanity and he took on the guise of "The Atomic Skull" who was a hero from an old movie serial. He also emitted dangerous amounts of radiation, then later gained the ability to project it as energy blasts. He has plagued Superman, whom he believed to be the serial's villain, and Lois Lane, whom he saw as the Skull's love interest - Zelda Wentworth.

He was later given enhanced powers by the demon Neron. Cured of his delusions, he at first intended to follow the character's example for real as a superhero, but has since appeared as a more conventional villain.

Notes:
Joseph Martin first appeared briefly in Adventures of Superman #483 and turned into the Atomic Skull a week after in Action Comics #670.

First Appearance: Adventures of Superman (1987) #483
