Outsiders Vol 1 1

Dr. Eric Shanner is a DC comics villain and the creator the villain team known as the Nuclear Family.

He lost his family to radiation poisoning and became unstable as a result, blaming nuclear power for his tragedy he created a "family" of androids designed to mimic the stages of a nuclear meltdown then unleashed upon the Esperanza Canyon Nuclear Power Plant with the intent of having them cause a nuclear meltdown which would kill many citizens of California - presumably so the survivors would feel the same pain he had when he lost his family.
