To save his only son from a tidal wave that would destroy their tropical home, Professor Charles Keith sent his son and dog into space inside of a rocket. The dog accidentally knocked the controls of the ship and sent it veering off course. Eventually the rocket crash landed on the planet Zumoor. The boy and his dog were found and adopted by a kindly alien couple named Chad and Vela Kazzan. The Kazzans named the boy Zarl and found that he was developing super-powers due to Zumoor's low gravity and the golden energy rays of Zumoor's moon. When Zarl grew a bit older, he took on the identity of Mighty Boy and became Zumoor's defender. He would later meet and befriend Superboy.
