"STEIN is the strongest their is!!!!!!" Frank Van Stein upon beating the Skrull HulkFrank Van Stein is a gamma radiation superhero who is a member of the South Avengers/Rangers.
He is made up of four scientists (with unknown pasts), who were working with Bruce Banner on the gamma bomb. Their role was to monitor the bomb from a protective bunker near the explosion site. When the explosion occurred, it ripped apart the poorly built bunker and killed the scientists, including lead researcher Frank Van Stein.
Sometime later, the radiation caused the remains of all the scientists to fuse together. They formed Frank Van Stein, as that was the only name they remembered from their past life. He fled into the desert, hiding before being discovered by a freak show.
