Search for 'Doctor Midas' on Amazon
After five years exposure to cosmic radiation, the man only known as Midas, could turn anything he touched into gold. He wore a golden armor that resembled the first armor of Iron Man (he obviously created it from designs he received from Ho Yinsen). It possessed like most of Iron Man armors repulsor emitters in the armor's gauntlets. Although he seemingly possessed some degree of resistance against injury and maybe even superhuman strength it was further enhanced by his armor. For years he searched for a higher dose of cosmic radiation, which he needed to complete his transformation.
After receiving the high dose of raw cosmic radiation he needed, Midas possessed the amplified combined powers of the Fantastic Four (fire, stretching, force fields, rock skin, superhuman strength, etc. --- shades of Super-Skrull). He also possessed a healing factor and was able to connect himself on a molecular level to other lifeforms. Using this power he enhanced his powers even further by absorbing some of the vast memories of the Plex Intelligence.
Besides his many powers Dr. Midas was a psychotic and sadistic human being. He was merciless and used his fortune to hunt down anything that could expand his fortunes or power. Like he said:"I can turn anything to my advantage."
