Jackson Hammersmith was a logistics worker on the loading docks of the Metropolis Electronics company. Apparently, he had mostly applied to the position in order to gradually steal specific components for his real project. He was building in his apartment a suit of power armour so he could become a super-villain and steal huge amounts of money.
Hammersmith knew that Superman would assuredly stop him, but soon after he completed his armour he got a lucky break, the Mole, a villain interviewed by the Eagle newspaper, mentioned that Superman now lacked much of his power. Soon, Jackhammer challenged Superman.
