Golden Age Origin

Ben Leighton uses a device which by bending light granted him the power of invisibility allowing him to become the Invisible Man. Unlike the original who was permanently invisible, Leighton could become visible again at will. However, in low light the device doesn't work because there would be no light for it to bend.

He used the device to rob the Midtown Bank and murder the bank teller and to steal an armored truck delivering gold. However, he was eventually captured by Bulletman and Bulletgirl. After Bulletman discovered the Invisible Man's vulnerability to low light, it allowed for him to land a punch on the now visible villain knocking him out cold. Unfortunately, Leighton's invisibility device was destroyed during the fight preventing the secrets of invisibility from helping or hurting mankind.
