Real Name: Mike Worley
Identity/Class: Human mutate
Occupation: Superhero, formerly explorer
Affiliations: member of Danger Unlimited
Enemies: Golgotha, Umbra
Known Relatives: Miss Mirage (wife); Thermal (brother-in-law), Doc Danger (father in-law), Umbra (mother-in-law)
Base of Operations: Danger Unlimited Complex, Rocky Mountains
First Appearance: Danger Unlimited #2 (Dark Horse, March 1994)
Powers/Abilities: He is possessed of increased strength and durability, due to his rock like body. After his initial transformation, he had a non-human, rocklike appearance, but later he appeared looking relatively human, although with his rock-skin under his human one (see picture). This suggests he either regrew a surface layer of normal skin, or that his teammate Doc Danger devised a fake one to wear over his new form.
History: In 1959 explorer Mike "Hunk" Worley discovered what appeared to be a crashed alien spaceship in the jungles of South America. He contacted renowned scientist Dr.Carson, who came as quickly as he could, accompanied by his two teenage children, Calvin and Connie. The group made it's way to the ship, and made camp outside it. However early the next morning Calvin and Connie snuck in to the vehicle, discovering an alien corpse inside. Their father and Mike soon discovered their absence, and began a frantic hunt for the teens. Something, possibly automated systems, rendered all of them unconscious. The children awoke in tubes, where they were being immersed in a strange gunk. Calvin paniced, and his body transformed, generating intense hear which melted him free from his restraints. He freed his sister, and then they located and released Mike and their father. It transpired that somehow the "gunk" had mutated each of them, giving them incredible powers. In Mike's case, his skin became rock-like and he gained superhuman strength. The group spent a year and a half perfecting their control of these abilities, before going public, announcing to the world at a ceremony attended by many other superhumans, that they were launching a new team of superheroes, Danger Unlimited.
Mike and Connie later married, at a wedding attended by most of the superhumans in the world. It is not known what his final fate was, but like the rest of Danger Unlimited, he vanished in 1985, after Umbra attacked their base.
