Negative Man

Negative Man (Larry Trainor) is a DC Comics character created by Bob Haney, Arnold Drake, and Bruno Premiani. He made his first appearance in My Greatest Adventure #80 (June 1963). Trainor’s career as a superhero begins when he is accidentally exposed to a radioactive field in the atmosphere while piloting a test plane (he wears bandages over his body to protect others from the radioactivity). This experience gives him a strange superpower: the ability to release a negatively charged energy being from his body; the being, also referred to as Negative Man. Negative Man can fly at high speed, cause solid objects to explode, and pass through solid materials. It resembles a shadowy silhouette of a human being, surrounded by a bright glow.
