Bio:
Hyperion first appeared in The Avengers #70 (November 1969) as a member of the Squadron Sinister, a group of supervillains assembled by the alien Grandmaster to fight the Avengers. This Hyperion was an alien from a subatomic parallel universe, pulled from his world by the Grandmaster for his own purposes, though later comics suggested that the Grandmaster simply created this Hyperion.

After his initial clash with the Avengers, he had repeated clashes with the Defenders. Eventually he later fell in love with the heroine Thundra, although this was a brief love affair. Finally, he met the original Hyperion through the machinations of Emil Burbank (a.k.a.Master Menace) on Earth-Squadron. On this occasion Burbank battled Hyperion while holding captive the visiting Thor. Suffering defeat once more, Hyperion was taken captive on Earth-S but later found himself in an interdimensional vacuum as he attempted to escape confinement.

During the Squadron's dominance on the world scene, Master Menace pulled Hyperion back through the interdimensional gulf and revealed his true origins. He was actually an inorganic duplicate created by the Grandmaster based on Hyperion I's physique. As such, he was revealed to be Marvel's version of Bizarro, although retaining sufficient, though uninspired, intellect. Master Menace caused the two Hyperions to swap places for several weeks, with the good version in the interdimensional void. The evil Hyperion proceeded to quickly fall in love with Zarda, (a.k.a. Power Princess), who reminded him of Thundra. The evil Hyperion secretly murdered Zarda's husband, the death appearing to result from natural causes. Forming a romance with the distraught heroine, this caused her confusion as the heroic version returned to Earth-S to battle his counterpart. During an epic struggle, with both emitting full intensity of their atomic vision, the evil version began to degrade rapidly, revealing his true nature. After Hyperion II's death, however, his counterpart Hyperion I resumed the romance with Zarda.

Although this "evil" version of Hyperion preceded the "good" version in his appearance, he is considered Hyperion (II), while the former is considered Hyperion (I).
