Man O'Metal. Pat Dempsey, a foundry worker, is the subject of an unfortunate accident: a vat of "white hot metal" spills on him. Rather than being killed, however, he undergoes an "inexplainable chemical reaction of the skin texture," which enables him to burst into blue flames whenever he is exposed to heat. He quits his job, becomes an agent for the F.B.I., and begins solving crimes. In his normal, human body, he is as vulnerable as any other person, but while on fire he can melt bullets and grenades. The criminals and foreign agents he opposes are entirely ordinary.
