First Appearance: Chrome #1 (Hot Comics, October 1986)
History: Chrome was an astronaut who went up into space as part of a joint U.S. / Soviet mission, testing out new, metallic and high tech survival suits. On re-entry, something went wrong and their shuttle crashed. Out of the three people on board, only one survived, and he was welded into his suit. The real problem arose from the fact that all the identifying markers were burned off the suit, meaning that no one could tell who he was before the accident - was he the Russian or one of the two Americans? Only Chrome knew...and for whatever reason, he wasn't telling.
Comments: Chrome was a product of the short lived Hot Comics line. His title only lasted three issues before cancelling. I know virtually nothing about this character beyond the fact of his existence.
