Transmutation: Cosmic King is able to transmute one chemical element into any other, for instance, lead to gold or iron to aluminium. He can also change solid objects into gaseous ones.
Cosmic King was born Laevar Bolto on the planet Venus. He was an alchemist who spent his life trying to invent a ray that could change an object's atomic structure into that of another. He was finally successful when he was able to transform a flower into a sparkling jewel. After accidentally falling in front of the ray himself, he found that he possessed the ray's ability innately. When he approached the Venus government officials with his discovery he was informed that his power of transmutation was considered evil. As such he was banished from Venus and travelled to the Earth's past where he became part of the Legion of Super-Villains.
