Albert Desmond suffered from a split personality, his dominant side being a decent citizen, and his alternate personality darker and criminal. Inspired by his interest in chemistry, he became Mr. Element, using his knowledge of chemistry to commit his crimes and escapes. After being apprehended by the Flash, he learned that his cellmate's "lucky stone" was actually the famed Philosopher's Stone, which granted its bearer the power to transmute elements. He escaped prison, found the stone, and began a second criminal career as Dr. Alchemy.
