Adam was a marine, a “Magna Cum Loude” Graduate of Cornell, and has a PhD in Theoretical Physics. He headed a team to try and harness anti-matter through the creation of a “Negative Reactor” which created a bridge between the Negative Zone and the positive matter universe. This reactor would then allow for an almost unlimited source of clean energy by allowing devices to tap the energy generated by a stable event horizon balanced between these positive and negative universes. Due to the unexpected explosion of the reactor. He became a stable “antimatter reactor” and developed a set of superhuman abilities. He was a superhero for a time until he was asked to retire by President Kennedy for the Civil Rights movement after he defeated Anti-Man and was outed as a “black man”.
