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 recently remanded Mr. Bones into the custody of Infinity, Inc.
