Origin

While testing an experimental rocket plane in 1958, NASA test pilot Chuck Chandler was captured by alien Skulls. Escaping his interrogators, Chuck damaged the Skrull ship's warp drive causing it to explode has he flew away, exposing him to alien radiation. Witnessing the explosion from Earth, Chuck's scientist brother Hal thought his brother had perished, but strangely Chuck's essence was imprinted as a two-dimensional image upon the lenses of Hal's eye-glasses; enabling Hal, with great mental concentration, to summon his brother back into three-dimensional space as the super-powered 3-D Man.


Years later a religious group known as the Triune Understanding was founded by Jonathan Tremont, who warned of a cosmic "Triple Evil." Stealing the powers of the original 3-D Man, Tremont empowered disgraced Olympic athlete Delroy Garrett Jr., to serve as his organization's spokesman Triathlon.


Garrett initially believed that his powers came from his own belief in himself and the teachings of the Triune Understanding, but when Tremont's true intents were discovered, Garrett and the Avengers foiled the cult leader's plans.


Garrett disappeared for a time, resurfacing as a recruit for the Avengers 50-State Initiative, now possessing the full powers of the 3-D Man.
