Origins:
 
Commander Christopher Pike was selected for a space mission aboard the Vulcan Probe One, a to hundred day orbit of the Sun. For unknown reasons however, he went berserk on board the spacecraft, killing his two colleagues Raoul Jerome and Dr Edward Solomon and sending the Vulcan Probe plunging toward the Sun. The ship's command module ignited, forming a molten shell around Pike's body which somehow protected him from the heat but caused him to become irradiated. Three months later, Pike crashed to Earth (right on schedule), mutated, radiating heat and calling himself Vulcan, Son of Fire, and went on a rampage in Gotham city, absorbing huge amounts of electrical energy from the city.
