Joseph Chill was responsible for the creation of Superman.

Joseph Chill was an American geneticist working for the United States government in an attempt to create their own superhuman being. In the 1970s, Chill's sponsor Nightwing chose a South Carolina town and drugged its inhabitants with his drug, the Miraclo Solution, to create an army of super-beings. However, the results left the residents either dying from the experiment or transformed into heavily deformed mutants with the exception of a surviving and normal appearing infant named Harvey Dent. Chill's experiment was considered a failure to the eyes of his superiors and Chill soon thereafter went into obscurity. Unknown to Chill or his superiors, Chill's experiment would proved to be a success decades later when an adult Harvey Dent manifested his powers and became known as the Superman.
