Golden Age Origin

The Bouncer was originally a statue of the Greek mythology figure Antaeus created by a sculptor named Adam Anteas Jr. The artist was a descendant of Antaeus. The statue however was not normal in fact whenever danger was near, it came to life. The living statue gave Adam superpowers of super strength and leaping, which it also possessed. Like the mythical Antaeus, of course, Adam and the statue are both vulnerable in mid-bounce.

  • The Bouncer was the first comic book character created by comics legend Robert Kanigher.
