HistoryEdit

Zenith was a third generation superhuman, the son of White Heat and Doctor Beat, two members of the 1960s super team Cloud 9 who had themselves rebelled against the conformist principles of their predecessor Maximan.

Vain, shallow and self-centred, he initially used his powers to promote his career as a pop singer. He was then reluctantly dragged into the ongoing struggle to prevent the extra-dimensional entities known as the Lloigor ('The Many Angled Ones') from invading Earth's dimension, alongside allies including Peter St John, Ruby Fox, Red Dragon and later several extra-dimensional superheroes including Robot Archie and Thunderbolt Jaxon. He was also forced to battle and destroy the cyborg Warhead, which had actually once been his father, Doctor Beat.

Having effectively helped St John save the entire multiverse from the Lloigor and the insane surviving members of Cloud 9, Zenith eventually returned to his former hedonistic lifestyle.
