Metalmorph was born prince D'ual Rochan from the distant planet Jantis. On Earth, he goes by the human name of Charlie Perez. He was impetuous, but born to rule. He had to flee to Earth when a rebellion broke out on his home planet. He settled in San Diego, CA among the unassuming earthlings.

Possessing vast power, he is primarily a shapeshifter, who's cellular bonding with the alien metal Neptonium allows him to go from liquid metal to hard steel in less than a thought. He also has enhanced strength, speed, agility, intelligence, and can manipulate atoms around him, allowing himself to levitate and "fly". In metal form he is able to lift about 50 tons. In human form he can lift about 20 tons.
