Dr. Noah Black was a Nobel Prize winner during the 1930’s his theories however were seen as too radical and he disappeared from public life. He quickly moved to an isolated island he later renamed Valhalla. Here he developed the evolutionizer which he used to keep himself in prime condition in addition to evolve himself and his test subjects. In addition to these he crafted the automated rebirth colonizer (ARC) which orbited earth.
