Mano of the Fatal Five was one of the Galaxy's most dangerous criminals. He hailed from the polluted planet of Angtu, located within United Planets space. His planet's atmosphere was hostile to most living things, and he had to wear an environment suit to breath the air on foreign worlds. The dome on his head blocked out his face, so his face was only seen as a silhouette.

Mano was embittered at the world around him, he channeled his destructive mutant energy into the planet's surface, and so destroyed the entire planet.

He was eventually caught by the Science Police and was about to have his deadly hand amputated when Ferro Lad showed up on behalf of the Legion of Super-Heroes to ask his help in defeating the Sun-Eater in return for a full pardon. The Legion also recuited the Emerald Empress, the Persuader, Tharok and Validus. These criminals helped the Legion fight and defeat the Sun-Eater. The five, with Tharok as their leader, became the Fatal Five, and embarked on a life of crime together.
