Position: Ally to Superman, Scientist
Bio: John Henry Irons was an inventor and researcher for LexCorp.
He developed the ultra modern police suit, code named the "Prototype".
It is a supersuit which allows members of the Metropolis PD to have the
same abilities and power as Superman. When the suit took control of the
subjects mind and caused the officer to lose control, Superman and Irons
decided it was not ready for use, and must be destroyed. Superman told
Irons that if he could go back and improve the suit, he could use the
help. Irons quit Lex Corp and went to work on improving the suit.
When Irons witnesses the return of Metallo, who is on the verge of
destroying Superman with his Kryptonite powered exoskeleton, Irons knows
he must act. He dons the new suit he has been developing, and grabs the
battle hammer he made to go with it, and Steel is born. He saves
Superman's life and the Man of Steel has a friend and comrade in the
fight against evil in Metropolis.
