Small-time conman John Corben was nearly crushed in a car accident, but robotic specialist Emmett Vale rescued Corben, transplanting his still-functioning brain into a robotic body powered by kryptonite. After Corben's operation, Vale told Corben he had to destroy Superman; fearing an invasion from Krypton. Corben instead snapped Vale's neck and embarked on a career as a rampaging, homicidal nightmare who desired nothing less than the death of Superman.

Alternate FutureEdit

In the alternate timeline where the conflict between heroes and villains has escalated to war, Wonder Woman confronted Metallo in combat, beheading him before being assailed by Deathstroke.

Combat StatisticsEdit

  • Metallo first appeared in Action Comics #252 (May 1959)

  • Metallo appeared in the opening cinematic in favor of Solomon Grundy, due to the belief the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) would have taken strongly to Grundy's decapitation
