Amazing Man (DC)(01 - Will Everett)
Real Name: William 'Will' Everett
Search for 'Amazing Man (DC)(01 - Will Everett)' on Amazon


Powers:
When originally given his powers by the Ultra-Humanite, thru unknown sources, Amazing-Man could take on the physical properties of anything he touched. If he touched a rubber band, he could stretch his limbs, touching steel gave his skin metalic toughness and increased his strength.

However, his abilites changed when exposed to severe electro-magnetic radiation from an experimental generator at Project M. He aquired the abilities of magnetic repultion and attraction. It is not known if the same generator gave similar abilities to Magno, or even how long Amazing-Man kept these abilities, since his original powers were passed down to his offspring.

Bio:
Will Everett was a man trapped by the racist attitudes of the early 20th Century. A gifted athlete, he beat the odds and won gold medals at the 1936 Olympic Games in Nazi Germany, striking a blow for African-Americans. However, he could not find work as a professional athlete and took to menial jobs to help support his family.

One such job was as a janitor for a scientist, Terry Curtis, who became involved with a plot by the Ultra-Humanite, and Will was taken captive and experimented on, becoming a super-powered being. Aiding the Ultra-Humanite, he was confronted by the All-Star Squadron, and seeing that the Ultra-Humanite was ready to let him die and his family also, turned his back on his evil boss and aided the heroes.

Not really ready for the life of a "mystery-man", Will returned to his family in Detroit, only to find himself in the middle of race riots spurred by The Phantom Empire, a white supremist organization. While helping the All-Star Squadron again, Will decided to use his powers to help the War Effort on the homefront by championing the causes of racial equality.

In May, 1942, Amazing-Man (as he was called), was accidentily exposed to the powerful electro-magnetic radiation from an experimental generator in Project M, which transformed his abilites into those of magnetic repultion and attraction, similar to those of Magno. It is not known how long he kept these abilities, since his original powers were passed down to his son and grandson. When last seen, Will Everett was suffering from cancer and did not have long to live, but passed the mantle of Amazing-Man down to his grandson, Will Everett III.
