Arthur had been working late at the Rare Metals Factory the night he witnessed a meteorite crash to Earth. Locating the extra-terrestrial object, he took his find to the Factory, where analysis of it's composition showed him it was made of an unknown metal with an atomic structure unique compared to anything on Earth. Arthur spent weeks working on the metal, and turned it into a flexible but indestructible costume, which he used to become the crimefighting Dark Avenger.
