Asbestos Man

Contribution History:
Date User Field Old Value New Value
2008-12-10 01:37:19 Merrik Powers The Asbestos Man wore a suit and carried a shield that were composed of "Super-Asbestos," chemically made from his own exclusive formula of chrysotile, calcium and iron; this protected him from flame attack, and was thick enough to be bullet-proof as well. He also used a net fashioned from "skin-covered nitrogen strands," which could catch fireballs and hurl them back with explosive force. He wore something akin to a gas mask, but unfortunately had no internal oxygen supply. None. The Asbestos man relied solely on his inventions. These included a suit and shield that were composed of his own invention “Super-Asbestos,” a net capable of catching and redirecting fireballs and a mask that resembled a gas-mask (but didn’t have an independent oxygen source).
2008-12-10 01:37:19 Merrik Bio One of the world's foremost analytical chemists, Kasloff resented that someone with his scientific ability was unable to achieve great wealth. Embarking upon a life of crime using his inventions (such as steel-melting liquid solvent or an electronic magnet able to open lock catches), Kasloff set off an alarm and narrowly escaped the police, after which he realized that he needed an experienced criminal's help to execute his heists. Kasloff concluded that he would earn the underworld's respect if he defeated the Human Torch (Johnny Storm), so he developed a suit of flame-resistent super-asbestos and summoned the Torch to his castle just outside of New York City. Unaffected by Torch's powers, Asbestos Man trapped him within his moat, gloating that he could defeat the hero again at any time. Publicizing his victory, Kasloff then partnered with crime boss Blackie Barker's gang, supplying the technology to facilitate bank-robberies, etc. Confronting Kasloff anew, the Torch melted the steel handle on his net, rendering it useless, and then used his flame to consume all of the room's oxygen, Kasloff surrendered, confessed and was imprisoned. Upset that someone with his scientific ability was unable to achieve great amounts of wealth, Kasloff set off on a life of crime. Figuring he could gain the underworld’s trust and admiration by defeating The Human Torch (Johnny Storm), he summoned him to a battle, actually managing to subdue the Torch during their first encounter. The Torch sought out Kasloff after their first battle, and more prepared this time, was able to defeat Kasloff by burning up all the oxygen in the room. Kasloff confessed to his crimes, and was put in prison.
