Tal Obrin hailed from the planet Geequo. Through the means of a genetic quirk, all human males on Geequo had a charismatic power over women that makes the females fall in love with them, and eager to do their bidding. As a result, Geequo had a very chauvinistic, male-dominated society.

Obrin decided that he could profit by turning his natural abilities to criminal pursuits, and so he left Geequo to do so. His power over other human women in the United Planets soon earned him the nickname of Apollo, the classic Greek god of myth, and this led to his adopting the same type of garb.

At some point, Obrin was recruited by Prince Evillo to join a group of evildoers called the Category:Devil's Dozen on Evillo's homeworld of Tartarus. He was able to take part in one crime with the group before the Legion of Super-Heroes became involved, and in short order, Obrin and the other Devil's Dozen villains were captured.
