The Composite Superman is a DC Comics supervillain, an enemy of Superman and Batman.

Publication history[edit]

The Joseph Meach version of Composite Superman first appeared in World's Finest Comics #142 and was created by Edmond Hamilton and Curt Swan.

Fictional character biography[edit]

Joseph Meach[edit]

Joseph Meach was a diver who had fallen on hard times. In an attempt to draw publicity to himself, Meach set up a water tank on a sidewalk in Metropolis and dove off a building. Unbeknownst to Meach, the tank was leaking and Meach would have died if not for the intervention of Superman. Upon learning of Meach's misfortunes, Superman obtained a job for him at the Superman Museum where Meach was employed as a janitor. Meach's bitterness did not subside and being surrounded by mementos of Superman's career directed his anger towards Superman. One night as Meach was sweeping in front of a series of statuettes depicting the Legion of Super-Heroes, a bolt of lightning struck the display. The statuettes (which were actually miniature lifeless duplicates of the Legionnaires) unleashed an energy blast that struck Meach, endowing him with the combined powers of the Legion members. Determined to defeat Superman, Batman, and Robin, Meach used his shape-shifting power to turn his skin green and form a costume that was half of Superman's costume and half of Batman's costume. Calling himself the Composite Superman, Meach left a message in both heroes' bases to meet him on a mountain. There, he told the heroes that if he was not allowed to join their team, he would expose their secret identities, which he learned via telepathy. The Composite Superman then created situations for Superman or Batman to handle, but which he intentionally sabotaged to humiliate the heroes, then sorted them out himself. Superman and Batman's attempt to expose him by using robot duplicates failed due to Composite Superman's ability to read their minds. Just before Meach could reveal the heroes' secret identities, the powers he gained from the statues faded away. Meach tried to write down the secret of his powers in the Superman Museum, but his memory faded before he could finish (though he managed to write down about the lightning striking the statues, but nothing more).[1]

A few years later an alien villain named Xan came to Earth to avenge his dead father, a criminal who had been imprisoned by Superman and Batman. Xan restored Joseph Meach's powers by recreating the original accident. Meach's memories returned and he used the powers of Sun Boy and Lightning Lad to destroy the statues of Superman and Batman leading to investigation by the Duo. This time, the duo were able to deduce their enemy's identity as they checked the museum employees who were not around when the Composite Superman was sighted. The Composite Superman captured Superman and Batman by impersonating a chained Robin. The Composite Superman tried to kill the team by using his powers to simultaneously turn half of their bodies to anti-matter; Meach's powers wore off before he could accomplish this. Xan appeared and fired a lethal energy blast at the heroes with his Magna-Gun. A remorseful Meach intercepted the blast, dying instantly. A statue was made to honor Joseph Meach saying that he "lived a villain, but died a hero."[2]

Xan[edit]

Xan escaped from prison and traveled back in time to recreate the event that endowed Joseph Meach with his powers, but with himself obtaining the powers. Xan assumed the identity of the Composite Superman and displayed greater control over his powers and understanding over his weaknesses such as timing his needed restorations of energy to maintain his power. Xan discarded the Composite Superman identity and created an original costume with the new name Amalgamax. Superman traveled to the 30th century to ask the Legion of Super-Heroes for assistance. Superman, Batman, and the Legion defeated Amalgamax by making him believe that the disease that killed his father had developed in him and that his excessive power was causing the disease to develop rapidly.[3]

Composite[edit]

Composite Superman's origin was reimagined as an early attempt of Professor Ivo's to duplicate the Justice League's powers by creating clones of the Justice League. It was only ever referred to as "Composite". Believing it to be a failure, Professor Ivo buried his creature in a field. The clones later revived themselves, merged into one being, and stole Superman and Batman outfits from a store sewing half of each together. Acting as both Superman/Batman and their alter egos of Clark Kent/Bruce Wayne, the Composite creature kidnapped Lois Lane and Tim Drake in an attempt to live the lives of both of its counterparts. He was later attacking Metallo when Batman and Superman arrived, but the duo could not defeat him and he escaped. They tracked him down and told him if he wanted to be both of them then go ahead. They told him of many crimes taking place and he could not decide who to help first. Composite lost it and ripped himself apart before they could help him.[4]

Composite Man[edit]

Following the Zero Hour reboot of Legion history, Composite Superman was removed from continuity. Legion of Super-Heroes Vol 4, #68 introduced a new "Composite Man", a Durlan who had the ability to duplicate any Legionnaire's powers and appearance. Rather than the clean, split-down-the-middle appearance of Composite Superman, Composite Man had a shifting mixture of costume elements from all the Legion members. Both he and his sister had been given these abilities by the Durlan government to be weapons, and resented this. However, while she chose to make her own destiny, he joined the Dark Circle to gain revenge on Durla.

Biography[edit]

On the planet Durla, there was a long cultural struggle between secular and religious movements. Before the formation of the United Planets, the Secularists of Durla created a program to produce living weapons through mutation. The goal was to acquire soldiers capable of not only mimicking the appearance but also the function of any species.

When they lost their grip on power, the Secularists found their program deemed sinful by the theocratic government and the test subjects were imprisoned in crystals. During regular maintenance to keep the living weapons contained, one of the crystals is damaged and an unnamed Durlan mutant breaks free, killing the entire priest class of Durla. The living weapon goes in search of Durlan priest and Legionnaire Reep Daggle. When battling the Legion of Super-Heroes the living weapon not only imitates the Legionnaires' abilities, but also parts of their respective appearances. Composite Man meets his end when Saturn Girl uses her telepathy to shut down his mind, leaving her in a catatonic state.

Powers and abilities[edit]

Joseph Meach[edit]

In terms of abilities and raw power, the Joseph Meach version of Composite Superman was one of the most powerful enemies Superman and Batman ever faced. He had all of Superman's powers, as well as those of Supergirl and the similarly-powered Mon-El and Ultra Boy. The Composite Superman also possessed numerous special powers, derived from various Legion members:

Composite[edit]

Professor Ivo's version of the character was shown to possess the powers of Superman, Batman, Atom, Elongated Man, Firestorm and Red Tornado.

Other versions[edit]

In Impulse #56, Crayd'l, a nanotech computer belonging to Bart Allen's archenemy Inertia, accesses Young Justice's files and uses information on Robin and Superboy to become a "Composite Superboy", with the half-and-half, green-skinned appearance of the original. Crayd'l intended to access information on the other members of Young Justice, but Impulse tricked him into downloading a music CD instead, turning him into Superboy's favourite rap artist.

In Superman/Batman #6, Hiro Okamura creates a spaceship in the form of a mecha version of the Composite Superman. In a more recent arc in Superman/Batman, a new Composite Superman Batman was created when Mister Mxyzptlk merged the Supermen and Batmen of several alternate realities together. Startled to be joined together, Batman mentally exclaimed to Superman, "Clark, your mind races, I never knew"; Superman replies, "And yours Bruce, is so dark".[5] This ends at the battle's conclusion, and all the Batmen and Supermen who did not "need to be here" were sent away, leaving only the normal DCU Superman and Batman).

In Superman and Batman: World's Funnest (2000), Mister Mxyzptlk join Superman and Batman in a black and white comic strip.

In other media[edit]

Television[edit]

  • Composite Superman made a cameo in Justice League Unlimited in an episode called "The Greatest Story Never Told". Unlike the comic, this "Composite Superman" is the product of a battle with the dark lord Mordru. It's actually a fusion of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman with the appearance of Composite Superman, but with Wonder Woman's voice, resulting from some twisted spell used in the intense magical conflict. The spell was undone by the time Mordru was defeated.

Film[edit]

Video games[edit]

Toys[edit]

  • DC Direct released a Composite Superman action figure in 2005, and a second one (based on the Superman/Batman vengeance 5 version) in 2008.

Parodies[edit]

  • The Cartoon Network series Robot Chicken has parodied Composite Superman in several episodes.
    • In "Easter Basket," a sketch about Christmas and Dragon Ball Z features Composite Santa Claus (voiced by Christian Slater), a creature who is half-Santa Claus and half-Frosty the Snowman. Composite Santa, Little Drummer Boy, and Nutcracker were secretly hired by Mrs. Claus to overthrow Santa Claus and take over the North Pole leading Santa Claus enlisting Goku and Gohan to help him. Composite Santa is killed when his snowman half is melted by the intense heat from an energy ball fired by Goku. Composite Santa's origin is shown in the episode "In a DVD Factory". A mad scientist (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) uses DNA samples of Santa Claus and Frosty the Snowman to create Composite Santa Claus. Composite Santa Claus shoots the mad scientist and his henchmen, and goes on a rampage on Christmas. An anchorman reports that Composite Santa Claus has been apprehended and is standing trial before a United Nations Tribunal. In "Saving Private Gigli," Composite Santa Claus is among the Robot Chicken characters assembled by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich to fight for Season 5 in the opening Saving Private Ryan parody of this episode. Composite Santa Claus' snowman half is dissolved in water while the Santa Claus half is bombarded by bullets. In "Fight Club Paradise," Composite Santa Claus is one of the mad scientist's line of defense that the Robot Chicken had to fight through in order to rescue his wife. The Robot Chicken manages to defeat Composite Santa Claus by beating him down the stairs with a baseball bat. In "Immortal," a sketch that parodied The Cabin in the Woods, Composite Santa Claus is among those locked up in the cube cells.
    • Composite Superman appears in the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special III: Magical Friendship, voiced by Jonathan Banks. He is accidentally summoned by Batman and Superman via Flash's Cosmic Treadmill, and the two run off arguing whether he should be named Composite Superman or Composite Batman. Composite Superman uses the Treadmill as part of his plan to rule the multiverse. Composite Superman and Superman fight using their heat vision, but succeed only in killing innocent bystanders. Batman suggests Superman attack the Batman side of his opponent's body as it is human and therefor vulnerable. Superman repeatedly kicks Composite Superman in the groin only to discover Composite Superman has Super-Balls. The attack proves to be enough of a distraction to allow Batman to jump onto Composite Superman's back and stab his Superman side with a Kryptonite Batarang. This weakens Composite Superman allowing Superman to defeat him with a punch to his groin. As he collapses in pain, Batman mocks him saying "I hope you learned your lesson", only for Superman to suddenly snap Composite Superman's neck which killed him as Brainiac breaks the fourth wall about something like that not happening in real life.
