Lancelot Strong was born Roger Fleming, the son of Cooper City scientist Malcolm Fleming. Fleming's career was devoted to tapping the latent powers of the human brain, to make men "more than mere men." Testing his theories on his son, Malcolm kept the boy in a germ-free environment within a huge bubble, at the same time feeding him micro-electrical stimuli through a specially designed helmet.
When fellow scientists threatened to bring Malcolm up on charges of mistreating his child, the scientist drove off with his son. But they were pursued by communists who wanted Fleming's secrets; trying to elude them, Fleming drove off a cliff.
The child survived and was found by Fairfield County farmers Abel and Martha Strong. They raised him as their own and, years later, when he returned to the overgrown wreckage of his father's van, Lancelot found a notebook which explained powers he never realized he had. He also found a costume which his father intended him to wear when, according to the a notebook, he "protects all mankind from the forces that would cause it harm."
Drafted into the army, Lancelot became a career soldier. Assigned to the tank division at Fort Patton, he was later transferred to Fort Sherman in the Midwest, where he worked his way up to captain.
