The Atomic Skull
The Atomic Skull is Dr. Albert Michaels, a S.T.A.R. Labs scientist who suffered from a rare nervous disorder. Using cybernetic implants to re-enable the electrical pulses in his brain, he finds that they give him the ability to convert his brainwaves into powerful bolts of energy. As the criminal Atomic Skull, Michaels battles Superman as leader of the Metropolis-based criminal organization known as Skull, and is instrumental in turning Roger Corben into the second criminal known as Metallo (First Appearance: [as Michaels] S No. 303, Sep 1976: "When Lightning Strikes...Thunder Kills!"; [as the Atomic Skull] S No. 323, May 1978: "The Man With the Self-Destruct Mind!").
