Doctor Zaxton Regulus was working at Metropolis Fusion Power's main branch on latter 30th Century Earth, experimenting with the concept of multiplying solar energy via radioactive gold isotopes. An unforeseen accident caused the experiment to explode, taking the life of a young lab assistant and injuring Regulus and Dirk Morgna, the son of the plant manager. Regulus was fired and blamed Dirk for his dismissal. Seeking revenge, Regulus used robots to beat Dirk and left him to die in the core of the plant's reactor, but Dirk survived and inadvertently gained super-powers.

Regulus then adopted a criminal lifestyle and continued experiments with radioactive gold. He clashed with the Legion of Super-Heroes and with his old nemesis Dirk Morgna, who was now the Legionnaire named Sun Boy. Realising that even the radioactive gold-powered devices he had created could not defeat the Legionnaires. Regulus created the artificial Arion star and used its energies to give him solar powers.
