A brilliant scientist and Korean War veteran transformed into a living anti-matter reactor in a lab accident, Adam Brashear became the Blue Marvel, one of Earth's greatest and most respected heroes. Fighting crime for years, his mask was torn off in a heated battle in 1962, revealing to the world that he was African-American; the President soon afterward awarded him the Medal of Freedom and asked him to retire, current racial tensions spurred to even greater heights by the knowledge of a black super-man. Grudgingly conceding, he continued on adventures to the four corners of the Earth in secret for decades, defending it against numerous super-scientific and mystical threats such as the Technocracy, the Deathwalkers, the Atomic Skeletons of Paris and Doctor Skorpion, before being drawn out of retirement to aid the Avengers against the return of his old friend-turned-enemy Anti-Man. Returned to regular duty, he continues to defend the Earth with distinction, both on his own and in teams such as Luke Cage's Mighty Avengers and the Ultimates.
