    • Metallo
      In the comics, Metallo first appeared Action Comics #252 (May 1959). As with several Superman villains, there have been several different versions. Pre-Crisis, was crook John Corben rebuilt by an elderly scientist who used experimental techniques to put Corben's brain in a robot body powered by radiation. Corben killed the scientist and figured out he could use green kryptonite to power his body and pose a threat to Superman on that and many other occasions. Post-Crisis, John Corben was a small-time conman made into a cyborg by a xenophobic scientist who had acquired a bit of kryptonite and used it to power Corben's body. Corben fought Superman but his kryptonite was stolen by Lex Luthor. He has since found other power sources and acquired greater power by making a deal with the demonic Neron. In all of his incarnations, Metallo possesses superhuman strength, a robot body capable of absorbing damage, and occasionally the ability to extend and to some degree modify his limbs. He can also fire blasts of kryptonite radiation.
