#01: In The Beginning
Real name: Todd Smith
El-Vis was born in a distant galaxy on the planet Argon, where his loving family named him "Todd." At a tender age, he was kidnapped by his neighbor, the mad scientist El-Al, who loaded him into a rocket and shot him into space. El-Al's calculations predicted that after El-Vis arrived on Earth he would develop god-like powers and become a superhero.
An error in El-Al's calculations caused El-Vis's spaceship to crash land in Mississippi, where he was adopted by a family of drunken hillbillies. After underoing an accelerated aging process, he set off to Skyline City to discover his true origins.
While working as an obituary writer for The Daily Sleaze, he learned of the fatal miscalculation which had forever changed his life and discovered that the Japanese Beetle had usurped the place that was "rightfully his." In a jealous rage, he flew off to confront the Japanese Beetle and beat him to within an inch of his life.
El-Vis's celebration was short-lived as he was interrupted by his hillbilly parents, who revealed themselves to be his biological Argonian parents in disguise. El-Vis tried to rebel against them , and wound up being banished to the "Forbidden Zone" by his mother for his troubles.
He is presumably still imprisoned there today.
Strength level: El-Vis's Argonian physiology reacts with Earth's argon-rigch atmosphere, giving him nearly limitless superhuman strength. In his a normal, argon-poor atmosphere he has the normal strength of an Argonian his height and build who engages in intensive regular exercise.
Distinguishing Features: El-Vis bears an uncanny resemblance to the late Elvis Presley.
Powers: El-Vis's Argonian physiology reacts with Earth's argon-rich atmosphere, granting him a variety of superhuman powers. He has been observed using powers of flight, superhuman strength and speed, supernatural vision, flame breath, x-ray crotch and laser uvula (whatever that is).
