From the very birthplace of the universe master criminal Lex Luthor gathered particles and pieces of galactic matter until he had enough to build a man. Like the legendary golem who had been moulded from clay, Luthorís man-thing was moulded from galactic matter, then given a form of pesudo-life by an intense bombardment of interstellar radiation focused by Luthor through a device he called the cosmic cannon. Since Luthorís Galactic Golem needed repeated infusions to survive, it would track down and destroy any object Luthor had filled with the energy, so the energy could be absorbed into his own body.
To this end, Luthor secretly filled his archenemy Superman with this hyperstellar energy, and set his Golem out to hunt down the Man Of Steel and destroy him.
