Alchemist (DC) (SW6)
Real Name: Jan Arrah
Search for 'Alchemist (DC) (SW6)' on Amazon

Jan Arrah has the ability to transmute elements. The ability include being able to sense the elemental structure of anything. There are some yet unknown limitations to the quantities that he can transform before exhaustion sets in, and the transmutations appear to be limited to one or two simultaneous transmutations at the time.

Jan Arrah along with the rest of batch SW6 was the result of a genetic experiment by the Dominion working for Earthgov. A detonation in the atmosphere above Metropolis opened the pods where SW6 were held and the legionnaires found themselves lying naked on the floor believing they were 17 years in the future [Legion of Super-Heroes (1989 series) #24 +25].

While trying to figure out what had happened, they were found by the reporter Devlin O'Ryan, who took them outside and tried to fill them in on what had happened in the time they were missing [Legion of Super-Heroes (1989 series) #25]. At the time, the Dominion was starting an invasion on Earth, and the SW6 batch started fighting them along with the rebels [Legion of Super-Heroes (1989 series) #27]. The Dominion was defeated [Legion of Super-Heroes (1989 series) #35], but at the loss of three of the SW6 legionnaires [Legion of Super-Heroes (1989 series) #32].

Brainiac 5 was unable to find out which one of the teams that was the original heroes and which ones were the clones, and seeing that the SW6 batch needed to get on with their lives, the Legion helped the SW6 batch forming a new Legion of Super-Heroes in the old Legion's clubhouse. The new legionnaires called themselves The Legionnaires and Jan Arrah took the name Alchemist [Legion of Super-Heroes (1989 series) #41].
