Used a device that allowed him to change into a random hero.

a teenager from Littleville, Colorado, who discovered the dial in a cavern. Resembling an old telephone dial, this device was hand-held and covered in unknown symbols (that somehow Robby was able to understand as modern letters.) Its origin is still unrevealed. By dialing the letters H-E-R-O, Robby would turn into a superpowered being; dialing O-R-E-H made him revert to his normal form. He quickly used it to protect Littleville under the guises of numerous superheroes.
