Murder Marton was on death row for payroll killings, but after he went to the electric chair, his coroners discovered that he was still alive, empowered by the excessive electricity he absorbed. One mortician was killed when he touched the glowing body. Murder Morton then went on a crime spree, but was stopped by Kid Eternity when he summoned Benjamin Franklin to absorb his electrical charge with a lightning rod.

Murder Marton was a ruthless killer, and he glowed with electrical energy which would kill a human or animal at the slightest touch.
