A stellar athlete and academic, Adam Brashear joined the Marine Corps after college to battle in the Korean War, service which earned him two Silver Stars for gallantry in combat. After the war Brashear was recruited to lead a project to harness anti-mater to create an endless clean energy supply. Recruiting fellow Marine platoon member Conner Sims, the two scientists were exposed to mutagenic radiation when the Negative Reactor exploded.

Sims saved Conner from overexposure to anti-mater radiation by pulling his body to safety, but himself fell into a coma, later to revive and become the murderous vigilante Anti-Man. Brashear himself gained immeasurable superhuman abilities as the Blue Marvel.
