Micro Lad's History

Despite what it looks like, Micro Lad has not the power to increase his size, but he's a giant with the power to shrink to 6 feet. His hometown, Big City, formerly known as McMurdo City, was normal-sized until the 29th century when Bizarro-Brainiac enlarged it to it's current size. The people who live there voluntarily stay there to prevent anyone from accidently squishing someone. Gim, however, with his ability to shrink to normal human size, have been able to travel to other places.

Gim dislikes being called Colossal Boy and prefers to be called Micro Lad. Many of his teammates feel he tries too hard to please everyone. Nevertheless, he is loved by all because his heart is always huge. He's a bit clumsy and has been referred to as being a walking avalanche. Gim appears to enjoy being with the "little people".

After the Legion Headquarters was destroyed, the Legion used Gim's home as a base of operation until the new Headquarters was finished.

Later, several youths from Big City appeared across the globe and began destroying property. However, the Legion managed to stop them with the help of Supergirl. But Gim was beaten badly these youths when they was freed by a mysterious team of villains during interrogation.
