Radiation Roy once tried to audition for the Legion of Super-Heroes. When Roy came received his inheritance, he used the money to gain radiation based super powers.
The procedure worked and he got his powers, but did not have control over them.
His mind was probed by Saturn Girl who was so horrified by his thoughts she could not sleep for two nights.
Roy's body over time became so badly ravaged with radiation poisoning, losing most of his teeth and growing hideous, pus-filled tumors, Roy started wearing a red containment suit.
Still feeling rejected he joined the xenophobic super-villain group known as the Justice League of Earth: the group being made up of Earth-born Legion rejects obsessed with spreading lies about Superman's origin.
Thus he helped spread the doctrine that Superman was human and that all aliens should be deported from the planet.
