Foundry worker Pat Dempsey has an unfortunate accident when a vat of white hot metal spills on him. Rather than being killed, however, he experiences an unexplainable chemical reaction. His skin becomes like blue metal, and he bursts into flames whenever he is exposed to heat or electricity. He quits the foundry and goes to work as a private investigator, solving crimes for pay and fighting evil for free. In his normal human body, he is as vulnerable as any other person, but while on fire, he can melt bullets and grenades. He can breathe underwater and is bulletproof.
