It all started when a man was mining in South Africa on a quest to find Platinum. One day he slipped on a rock and cut himself on what seemed to be platinum. After the man recovered from the injury he began to feel different. He had noticed he was becoming stronger and stronger every day. One day at his new job at an office he became upset with his co-worker, when all of a sudden lasers came shooting out of his eyes. A co-worker caught the whole thing on camera and soon the whole world saw the video. Steve (also know as Platinum Man) soon went into hiding in an abandoned warehouse that he remodeled with incredible technology and weapons. Platinum Mans only weakness was Chlorine Man who is very reactive when he comes in contact with platinum. His body became filled with platinum and he became indestructible. Nobody ever messed with him. Now days he is still out there fighting bad guys and if someday you are in trouble you might just run into him, although he might be moving back to his hometown in Iowa.
