History: Doctor Daniel Westin worked as a scientist for the KLAE corporation, a government thinktank, until the day when a lab accident turned him invisible. Westin, working on a cure, was horrified to discover his bosses were planning on finding military applications for the process, and so he destroyed his lab and all notes connected to the invisibility accident.

After being a fugitive for a brief period, Westin struck up a deal with the government. He went to work for them (and a cowed KLAE corporation), using his powers for them on selected secret missions which he felt were not too morally dubious, in return for using their facilities to try and find a cure. In the meantime plastic surgeon Nicholas Maggio helped him disguise his condition beneath a lifelike "Derma-plex" mask and gloves which both looked and felt like real skin, enhanced by contact lenses, a wig, and caps for his teeth.
