Background

Luciopoulos was once a big time gambler from Greece. He traveled the world over, looking for a game of chance. Once while he was down on his luck he fell in with a terrorist group. The terrorists convinced Bastiaan to help them on a raid on a chemical plant in exchange for a part of the loot. While inside the chemical plant the terrorists were discovered by Solaris and a firefight broke out. A stray shot ruptured a tank holding an unknown chemical which was secretly being developed, and Bastiaan was sprayed by the mysterious substance. The fumes were enough to render Bastiaan unconscious. He was sent to a hospital while the terrorists were sent to prison.

While at the hospital the chemicals Bastiaan had been sprayed with started to mutate him. Guards rushed to his room after they heard the bed crashing to the floor. Bastiaan was now completely coated with a gold-like substance. One of the guards shot him, and was surprised when the bullet ricocheted. With a hearty laugh Bastiaan touched the guard and the man was turned into a statue of gold. After that it was easy for Bastiaan to escape.

Over the years, Bastiaan, who goes by the code name: Midas, has made a name for himself as a major European super-villain. While traveling in Monte Carlo, Sterling came across Midas robbing a casino. Afterwards Sterling invited Midas to join TITAN. Midas thinks that being a member of TITAN will bring him great wealth and renown.

Personality

Bastiaan is a very self-centered person. He usually only thinks of himself. As Midas he knows that he is the greatest villain to come out of Greece. Midas will gladly sell out anyone to save himself. He’s quite confident that his powers will always be able to get him out of any situation. Being a gambler he likes the big pay-offs and really enjoys having money, especially gold.

Quote

"Momma. Lookie here; another super-hero in tights. Here let me give you a big hug."

Powers

Because of the chemical mutation in Midas, he’s now able to change a person's chemical make-up. The result of his touch is a shell that completely covers his foes and appears to turn them into a statue of gold. While transformed the victim is completely aware but is unable to move or act. However, over time, the transformation will wear off. Midas must actually touch his foe for this transformation to occur. It doesn’t work if Midas were himself struck by a blow.

Midas can also touch himself causing a similar transformation. However, unlike his victims, Midas is not hindered in any way. Instead the golden shell acts as an armor of sorts. Repeated blows to his golden shell causes it to flake away. The mutation also protects Midas from drains and transfers.

Appearance

Bastiaan is a short stocky man with curly red hair and brown eyes. He has a short curly beard as well. As Midas he wears a white toga with sandals. When Midas forms his golden shell, his clothing doesn’t change. Bastiaan uses his powers to disguise himself and keep his two identities separate. When not in his Midas guise, Bastiaan likes to wear expensive designer suits.
