Bouncing Boy is a 30th Century super-hero who has the power to inflate himself and bounce around like a giant ball. This combination of invulnerability and velocity makes him a surprisingly useful combatant. Born on Earth without any powers, he received his abilities by accidentally drinking a super-plastic formula he believed was soda pop. Chuck is a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. He has shared a long-term romantic relationship with Triplicate Girl of the planet Cargg, one of his fellow Legionnaires whom he eventually marries. In Reboot Legion continuity, Chuck Taine is the Legion's mechanic. Bouncing Boy was created by Jerry Siegel and Jim Mooney, first appearing in Action Comics #276. (1961)
