Roy Lincoln is the first superhero named the Human Bomb and was part of the Quality Universe and later the DC Universe.


Roy Lincoln was a scientist working on the mysterious chemical explosive 27-QRX.  When Nazis attempted to steal it, Roy decided to drink it rather than risk it getting into enemy hands, unintentionally gaining the power to generate explosives, which he used as the hero the Human Bomb.


Very little is known about Roy Lincoln's early life, save that he was raised by his father Professor B. Lincoln.  When he grew up, he became a chemist and frequently worked with his father, a demolitions expert.  In 1941, Roy's father created 27-QRX, a chemical with incredible explosive potential.  When Nazi agents learned of it's existence, they tried to steal it and the method to make it in order to give Germany an edge in World War II.
