Frank Halloran was a philosophy major at Berkeley. He had a hot Jewish girlfriend Sara Shapiro and he is having trouble figuring out the direction of his life.
Reggie Meyer is a survivor of the Amazo Virus and the Rebirth Kid Amazo. He was beckoned to by the technology within the original android and constructed armor which enhances his powers based on it.
Kid Amazo was created by Peter Milligan and Carlos D'Anda
Then Amazo crashed into Frank's life and told him he was Kid Amazo, and he was programed to help his father destroy the Justice League Of America. Frank was told that Professor Ivo, the evil genius creator of the original Amazo, crossed bio-matter from Amazo with human eggs and DNA to create Kid Amazo. When he confronted Ivo about his past, Ivo revealed that Sara was his daughter, and she was Frank's biological mother.
Angrily, Kid Amazo attacked Berkly until the JLA showed up. He then proceeded to dismantle the team, out-running the Flash, running through John Stewart, dropping Wonder Woman, and beating Superman with Batman's Kryptonite ring. In the end, the Kid was only beaten by the many conflicting, skeptical personalities of the JLA bouncing in his head, which shorted him out and caused him to explode.
