Official Bio[]

Professor Will Magnus invented the responsometer - a microcomputer capable of imbuing pure elements with a semblance of life, intelligence and emotion. Implanting samples of gold, iron, lead, tin, and mercury with their own responsometers, Magnus watched the metals take on humanoid shape and personalities. The team of robots became the Metal Men. Lead is large and sluggish, with a huge heart and lovable nature. He is often used as a shield due to his natural properties against radiation.
