Powers: The Thermal Man was powered by an "atomic pile", which made him nearly invincible to any attack. His eyes and hands unleashed a "Thermal Blast" capable of melting any earthly material into slag, up to and including bedrock and tanks. He was also strong enough to toss Thor around (Class 50?) and durable enough to survive direct hits from Mjolnir, and even an "implosion bomb" designed specifically to destroy him. He also had sophisticated sensor arrays designed to find the weaknesses in materials. He could not be reprogrammed, despite numerous attempts to do so. When later revived by Redfield Electronics, he no longer had an atomic pile engine and was somewhat less powerful, but could absorb energy directed at him.
