Hank Heywood is a name passed down through several generations of heroes. The original Hank Heywood was crippled during World War II, and a scientist used cybernetic upgrades to make him extremely powerful. He took the name Commander Steel, originally just Steel, and became a member of the All-Star Squadron. His grandson Hank Heywood III also had to be rebuilt after an injury, and he became the second Steel working with Justice League Detroit. Heywood's other grandson Nathan became Citizen Steel as a member of the Justice Society. There is another superhero named Hank Heywood on Earth 2 in the New 52 reboot continuity. Hank Heywood, Jr. is repaired by his father and becomes Captain Steel of the World Army. Hank Heywood was created by Gerry Conway and Don Heck, first appearing in Steel #1. (1978)
