Cobalt-Man
Real Name: Ralph Roberts
Search for 'Cobalt-Man' on Amazon


Powers:
Constructed from a super-cobalt alloy many times stronger than steel, Cobalt-Man's armor grants the wearer super-strength, an internal oxygen supply, flight capability and the ability to fire concussive recoil beams. After his mutation, Ralph gained additional muscle mass, enhanced strength and durability, and the ability to generate radioactive energy from his hands which he could project to allow flight or as concussive force beams.

Bio:
Ralph Roberts was an inventor who had been studying the effects of nuclear radiation involving cobalt. He sought to use this as a weapon and built a cobalt suit of armor in imitation of Iron Man's, and called himself the Cobalt Man. He later achieved superhuman size and power due to radiation. While on a mission with Egghead's Emissaries of Evil, he appeared to have been killed in a nuclear explosion, but he was later revealed to have survived.


During the 2004 Avengers/Thunderbolts six issue mini-series Tony Stark, (aka Iron Man), infiltrated the Thunderbolts as "Cobalt Man" to learn their intentions and agenda. Eventually, Stark revealed his true identity and tossed the Cobalt Man armor away.


Apparently, the original Cobalt Man was one of the many villains that escaped from The Raft prison during New Avengers #1-3 (January - March 2005). In an appearance which was widely previewed (first in New Avengers: Illuminati #1; May 2006) but which was originally produced as part of Civil War #1 (July, 2006), the New Warriors located Cobalt Man hiding in Stamford with other escaped convicts. The New Warriors were part of a reality show and decided to take down the villains. During the ensuing conflict, Nitro used his powers to demolish the entire neighborhood, causing the death of hundreds of men, women and children, most of the New Warriors, and apparently Cobalt Man as well.

Cobalt Man later appeared to have survived the explosion and resurfaced fighting Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel. However he was later revealed to be a Skrull in disguise.
