Happy Birthday, Chemical King!

According to the 1976 DC Calendar, today will be the birthday of Condo Arlik, better known throughout the galaxy as Chemical King.

Chemical King was the 26th member of the Legion of Super-Heroes, and served with distinction for nearly three years. He made the ultimate sacrifice to save Earth when the power-mad dictator named Deregon started the detonation of a nuclear power sphere. Chemical King used his powers to slow the reaction and to absorb the remaining radiation into his own body.

Because Chemical King is no longer with us, he doesn't have a horoscope. Instead, let's look at how each of the Legion artists illustrated this brave young man...
