Symbolix Project Telemachus Project Helix After World War II, German biogeneticist Klaus Schimmel was brought to America, under the identity of Egrin Wahrman, to continue the research which created the Nazi super-soldier Baron Blitzkrieg.
Failing to create results, Wahrman's government funding was eliminated and lingered until Vandal Savage became his secret financer and Wahrman founded the Symbolix Corporation. Providing Wahrman with the genetic material of several members of the Justice Society and All-Star Squadron, Vandal Savage was well on his way to creating an instrument of revenge.
After successfully creating DNA which would carry the metagene, Vandal Savage abducted a donor whose biology would be receptive to the genetic manipulation - the recently pregnant Mary Pratt, wife of the superhero known as the Atom, Al Pratt.
All of the Symbolix children exhibit enhanced strength, speed and durability with other abilities specific to their bloodline or circumstances.
