Energy Form: The Pionic Man is a brilliant physicist whose body was composed entirely of pions, short-lived, subatomic particles, and he needed a containment suit to stay alive. The Pionic Man can fly and project pionic blasts.
Dr. Hastur was a researcher at the large proton collider at Lowrance University. The collider was supposed to approximate the conditions of the Big Bang, but something went wrong, and the collider went haywire. Firestorm saved the day, but Hastur found that his body had been converted into pions, short-lived subatomic particles. His body disintegrated when he was approached by the villain Tokamak, who offered to save his life if he accepted that his old life was over. Hastur agreed in desperation, and Tokamak gave him a containment suit. Tokamak told the newly christened Pionic Man that Firestorm, who was present during the accident, was responsible for his condition, and told him exactly how he could take out his old foe.
