"Chosen by the Incandescence for a purpose."
Floyd Rizzo, an engineer and a welder came across a elemental object buried inside a cave during an exercise break. Taking the object, he learned it was made by an fire elemental entity known as The Incandescence. Seeing Rizzo worthy of its power, The Incandescence bonded its abilities with Rizzo’s intellect of engineering and welding, thus granting him the elemental power of fire. With this sudden change, Rizzo was able to transform into the elemental being known as Flashburn, The Atomic Man.
