Having developed an elixir that allows him to safely absorb and utilize atomic energy, Ace Hart operated from a laboratory which has a device for sensing when and where people are in danger, so that he could race to their rescue. For a little time he partnered himself with Jessie King, who gained the power of flight from Ace's elixir.
