Through dabbling with human evolution, this evil scientist believed himself advanced to the pinnacle of human potential. This belief made him unusually smug towards other, "less evolved" humans, and an adequate foil for Captain Action, who derived his powers from, essentially, magic.
This character's moniker "of Earth-1" is derived from the appearance of Superman of Earth-1 and his references to the JLA in his first, two-part story.
This moniker also usefully distinguishes this version of the character from the one featured in the action figure line which predated DC's involvement, the revival action figure line which happened in 2000, and any future reincarnations.
This character should also not be confused with the somewhat similar "evil genius" from the Austin Powers movies.
