The Mighty League of the Just
Background:
When his father was killed by gangsters, young John Sterling decided to become a crime-fighter. Studying chemistry, he searched for something to give him an edge in his battle; what he found was a formula which, theoretically, would give his body the properties of steel.

Coating himself with the formula, he hesitated before taking the last step -- diving into a cauldron of molten steel. Mustering the courage, he jumped in and emerged with tissue as mighty and impervious as metal, with magnetic properties to boot.

Rather than adopt a secret identity per se, John pretended that the superhero was his brother; this gambit proved cumbersome, however, and was abandoned after several months in favor of John being Steel Sterling around-the-clock.
