Sorel could absorb, generate, and manipulate vast amounts of radiation, in the form of heat, light, etc. These energies also vastly increased his strength, putting him in perhaps the Class 10 range. He once used his energies to amplify the radioactive power in the Puppet Master's clay, increasing his ability to control others. Any means which drain his radiation will leave him powerless.
Henri Sorel was a research physicist employed by World Health. He was also the director of Project: Damocles, which was an all-out international effort to develop a universal cure for radiation poisoning.
On day 374 of his research, he made a breakthrough while working in seclusion. However, he was then confronted by agents of Ward Meachum, who sought to buy the cure from him. When Sorel resisted, the men beat him savagely. He lay in the ruins of his lab for hours, covered with a number of nuclear isotopes, but also doused in the chemicals for the cure. He survived what should have killed him, initially without ill effect, but after several days he began to mutate into a nuclear monster. He sought help from scientists to no avail. Finally, in desperation, with his sanity affected by his mutation, he sought the assistance of a criminal somewhat experienced with radiation, Phillip Masters, the Puppet Masters.
Also known by the super-human aliases Radion & Ravager.
Created by Chris Claremont, Steve Gerber, and Herb Trimpe.
