Xaxan was one of three Murrans who were part of an advance guard that intended to invade Earth. They used super-power pills that gave them a variety of super-powers. Aware that the Legion of Super-Heroes represented a formidable defence against their plans, they adopted disguises and infiltrated the Legion using fake codenames. Xaxan became 'Blackout Boy', while his colleagues became 'Magnetic Kid' and 'Size Lad'.

However, the Legion had been aware of the Murrans' identities all along, and had only pretended to accept them as Legionnaires. They unmasked the impostors, and followed them home to Murra, where they destroyed the stock of super-power pills, thus preventing any further attempts at super-powered conquest.
