Pyroman was created by Nedor Comics. Somehow working with high-voltage electricity, he allowed him to gain the ability to store and control electricity it. He discover this ability when he was sent to the electric chair for a crime he didn't commit. He used his powers to clear his name and become a superhero.
The character fell into public domain and as such any comic company could use him. AC Comics reprinted his Nedor Comics adventures and a made a few new one. In American's Best Comic's Tom Strong series, he is revealed to be a member of the Society of Modern American Science Heroes or SMASH (which consists of public domain Nedor Comics heroes). He (with the rest of the team) are put in suspend animation and are revived 30 years later by Tom Strong, only for them to disband (althought they come back together 3 years later). Dynamite Entertainment said Pyroman would be in their Project Superpowers series. Age of Adventure reprints several Golden Age Pyroman story.
