Eddie Slick was a small time mobster feeding mutagenic drugs to wrestlers (such as King Crusher) to enhance their performance. His wrestler King Crusher was mutated to a hulk-like giant. Slick was fleeing for his life before Firestorm intervened. Firestorm saved Slick's life but also exposed the entire steroids-providing ring to the authorities.
The mob blamed the entire affair on Slick. His criminal career ended and a bit later Eddie Slick was buried alive in the Nevada desert. Instead of dying, Eddie mutated to a being composed of and able to control sand.
