The Liberator is the secret identity of Professor Nelson Drew, a chemistry teacher at Claflin University. He discovers an ancient Egyptian formula called Lamesis that temporarily transforms his body into his "ideal" form, giving him superhuman strength, speed and invunerability. He could also hold his breath for an extended length of time. Drew found the transformation to be a painful experience as it rapidly altered his muscles and bones, and the transformation would sometimes revert at the most inopportune moments.
