History[]

Rocketed as a child from the dying planet Zoron, Hyper-Man landed on the planet Oceania and was adopted by the King family, who named him Chester King. He gained super-powers and became the hero, Hyper-Man. He worked as a TV reporter.

When Superman visited, he discovered that Hyper-Man was going to die from Zoronite poisoning. Superman sabotaged his career by removing his powers so that he could marry his girlfriend, Lydia Long, and live out his remaining time in happiness.
