The Conqueror was Daniel Lyons, an American pilot. While flying across the country, he crashlanded near the Rocky Mountains. Luckily for him, he landed near the hidden laboratory of James Norton, a reclusive scientist. Norton used the Cosmic Ray Lamp to restore the wounded pilot to health. The exposure also enhanced Daniel's physical and mental abilities to near super-human levels while also heightening his regeneration abilities. Norton persuaded Daniel to use his powers to fight the Axis powers on their own turf. Assuming the costumed identity of the Conqueror, the young pilot did just that.

Powers and Abilities

In addition to his super-human physical and mental abilities, the Conqueror relied on his fighting skills. He also used a revolver and a throwing knife.
