Years ago, the gynecologist Dr. Benjamin Love injected six pregnant women with an experimental mutagenic drug. As a result, the six women each gave birth on the same night to a superhuman mutant child. Dr. Love called the children genomorphs because of their transformed genes. Dr. Love abducted the infants from the hospital and brought them to a house in the desert near Bakersfield, California, where he raised them.

One of the children had transparent flesh so that his skeleton was visible. Dr. Love named him Mr. Bones. As Mr.Bones grew, Dr. Love kept him confined to his property. Mr. Bones learned all he knew from books, radio, and television and never met anyone else. Mr. Bones developed the habit of speaking in rhymes. His flesh, organs, blood, etc. are all perfectly transparent, and his invisible skin secretes a potent cyanide-like poison that often kills instantly. Only direct contact is lethal even thin surgical gloves are enough of a protection.

Having grown up watching TV clips of the Justice Society of America, who were super-powered beings like himself, Mr. Bones created a costume for himself in imitation of JSA and kidnapped Fury, whom he held for ransom. Mr. Bones clashed with Fury's teammates, the Infinity, Inc. and she regained her freedom.

A court of law remanded Mr. Bones into the custody of Infinity, Inc.

Character revised according to rules presented in ICONS Great Power book. Streamlined, once again, according to ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying: The Assembled Edition.
