The same aliens which gave Wo-Man his armored female body also abducted Mark Robinson and gave him a strap-on harness, which bestowed cliché comic-book superpowers that Mark could barely keep under control.

He pursued a villain of the same alien race as the ones who'd given him the harness, but the villainous alien aimed an odd device at him which increased all of his powers and abilities eightfold. Now, as was the villain's intent, his powers were so overwhelming that he could no longer control them at all. His amplified, wild powers nearly caused him to destroy himself; but in an act of desperation, he ripped off the harness, crushing it accidentally in his overpowered grip as he did so. The cliché comic-book superpowers were gone — but the eightfold amplification of his normal abilities still remained. And eight times a normal man's strength, agility, toughness, intellect, etc., was enough for him to soundly defeat the villain.

(The inspiration for this origin story was an episode of the Shazam! cartoon, in which an enemy amped up Captain Marvel's powers so absurdly that even pressing gently against the ground to stand up destroyed the pavement. His solution was to turn back into Billy Batson. He couldn't fly, but he could leap for miles.)

Octoplex often teams up with Wo-Man whenever the aliens are causing trouble.
