History: Dr.Wilderman had been a scientist working with geneticist Dr.Heinrich Skaal on the secret of immortality. But after making a breakthrough, the treacherous Dr.Skaal stabbed his colleague in the back and set fire to the lab to destroy the evidence. Bleeding to death, Wilderman attempted to escape through the basement, where they had stored chemicals in giant vats. The injured scientist blacked out momentarily, and he fell into one of the vats. The pain from being boiled alive awoke him long enough to escape the vat, and he passed out again on the floor next.
The next morning he awoke to find himself healing inhumanly fast, but hideously disfigured by what had happened. He destroyed what little remained of the lab in a rage, discovering that he had also gained superhuman strength. With his friends and family believing him dead, and people shunning him because of his appearance, he decided to commit suicide, only to find his neck muscles were too strong for him to hang himself. Feeling that even death was laughing at him, he vowed revenge on society.
