McCormick, Dan. Dan McCormick was created by H.J. Essex, Len Golos, and Sid Schwartz and appeared in the film The Atomic Monster (1941).

Dan McCormick is a Superhuman. McCormick is the only survivor when a bus crashes into an electric pole and everyone on the bus, with the exception of McCormick, is electrocuted. McCormick is rendered immune to electricity, and when he is lured to a laboratory and given a series of electric shocks, he becomes superhumanly strong and a generator of electricity himself. Unfortunately, the Mad Scientist who experimented on him, Dr. Rigas, now controls McCormick’s body, and uses him to commit crimes.
