Super President

Real Name: James Norcross

Identity/Class: Human mutate

Occupation: President of the United States

Affiliations: Jerry Sayles (advisor and confidante)

Enemies: Unknown

Known Relatives: None known

Aliases: None known

Base of Operations: The White House

First Appearance: Super President (DePatie-Freleng for NBC, 1967)

Powers/Abilities: Super President could alter his molecular structure and transform his body into various elements or compounds. He would become steel to bounce bullets off his chest for example.  Other examples of things he became include acid, water, gas, ozone, granite and electricity. No matter what form he was in, he was also extremely strong. He wears jets on his belt that allow him to fly.

History: After being stuck in a cosmic storm, James Norcross gained superhuman powers. Either some time before this, or some time after, he was also elected to the office of President of the United States. Deciding to use his superpowers to defend the Earth, he created the cunning secret identity of Super President (yeah, like no one will see through that one!). Telling only his good friend Jerry Sayles of his double identity, he operated out of a hidden base underneath the White House (although it wasn't called that, just "The Presidential Mansion", and it had undergone a few futuristic upgrades, there was no question of where it was meant to be), sneaking out a hidden exit in the Oval Office and then nipping off to battle crime in the Omnicar, a heavily armed flying machine / submarine he had parked down there.

Comments: Super President was voiced by Paul Free.
