Absorbancy Boy aka Kirt Niedrigh discovered he had the power to absorb residual energies left by meta-humans and mimic powers. As Absorbancy Boy, he applied for membership at the Legion of Superheroes Try-Outs. He was rejected on the premise that his power was dependent on close proximity to meta-humans. This would endanger his life as not all of the Legion's enemies were super powered.


  • Power Absorption: Absorbancy Boy has the ability to absorb and duplicate the superpowers of Metahumans and aliens. However he is not able to copy the knowledge or skills, so it will normally take time for him to master a new power. He absorbs energies of people within a certain range of him; anywhere from several feet to a mile radius. He has shown the capacity to manifest numerous powers at the same time.


  • Absorbancy Boy occasionally shows difficulty in juggling multiple powers, and his body can be overloaded by absorbing too many at once. Usually Absorbancy Boy loses his duplicated abilities once out of range of the owner, but theoretically due to the length of time spent with them.



  • Absorbancy Boy, after being rejected from the team, years later he resurfaced as Earth-Man leading a group of supervillains calling themselves the Justice League of Earth, which help to enforce a xenophobic agenda that Earth has adopted.
