History

Steelworker Tony Woodward caused a riot at a steel plant after he assaulted a female employee. Angry coworkers threw Tony into a vat of molten steel. The liquid steel included recycled scraps from experiments performed by S.T.A.R. Labs. These scraps somehow turned Tony's body into living metal, which has incredible resistance from harm and grants him superhuman strength. The major drawback was that the steel body began to rust when exposed to oxygen. He was eventually arrested for robbery and sent to Iron Heights.

After escaping Iron Heights, he joined up with Blacksmith and her Rogues to take over Keystone City and Central City. While a member of her rogues, Magenta used her powers to keep Girder from rusting and Girder, having an "attraction," made unwanted advances towards her. After making another crude pass, Magenta ripped Girder in half. His body was welded together and Girder was taken back to Iron Heights.

One year after the battle with Alexander Luthor and Superboy-Prime, Girder was seen in San Francisco fighting the Teen Titans, but was defeated.
