History: Suspecting the forces of darkness to be on the move, noted researcher and expert on black magic Dr. Moore created an artificial man to combat them, with the "power of steel, the speed of an eagle, and the wisdom of the sages" all combined within his form. The Yellow Spot, an evil wizard, killed Moore in his laboratory, but as he died he flipped the switch bringing the Dynamic Man to life.
Comments: It's unclear whether Ricky is an adopted brother, or another artificial lifeform. Given he shared his brother's powers, it seems likely it is the latter.
CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
Dynamic Boy, who despite sharing a name and comic, is a different person from Ricky as well
