An outspoken television host, Jack Ryder was fired for his
controversial opinions. Taking a job as a security
investigator, Ryder was assigned to protect the Russian
scientist Dr. Yatz, who had devised two inventions; a
healing serum and a molecular transducer which rendered
solid matter weightless and invisible.
When his mission failed Ryder assembled a hasty disguise from odds and ends to infiltrate a costume party attended by the kidnappers. Discovered, he was stabbed and taken prisoner. Dr. Yatz injected him with his healing serum and implanted his molecular transducer into Ryder's wound, which completely healed moments later.
Using his new found abilities Ryder overcame the kidnappers. Realizing his bizarre appearance gave him an edge over opponents he decided to play the role of the madman called the Creeper.
