Klint Stewirt originally had the ability to turn whatever he touched into solid gold. Deciding to use this as a superpower, Klint became Golden Boy and tried out for the Legion of Super-Heroes. The Legion rejected him on the grounds that his power would bring down the value of gold.
Years later, Klint's abilities evolved, and his entire body became solid gold. Angry about his rejection, Klint joined a team of fellow Earth-born Legion rejects, the Justice League of Earth.
