Dr. Lu's mutation gave him iridescent green skin and made him perpetually radioactive. Constant nuclear radiation from his body, intensity corresponding to physical exertion. Can harmless absorb any radiation. Can employ radioactivity in a number of ways.

A nuclear physics genius employed by the Chinese communist government, Chen Lu secretly aspired to great power. When the Chinese military ran afoul of the thunder god Thor, Lu volunteered to become China's human weapon against Thor. Having already gradually immunized himself against radiation poisoning, Lu used special radiation treatments to mutate himself into a superhuman being. Dubbed the Radioactive Man, Lu fought Thor unsuccessfully. He returned to battle Thor and his fellow Avengers many times over the years.

Recently, Dr. Lu came to the United States to destroy Fathom Five, whom had attacked China. In the states, he battled alongside the New Thunderbolts and came to join the team.
