Midas was once a scientist working on a bacterial strain that would be able to revolutionize the treatment of toxic waste. While demonstrating his findings, he encountered a woman who seduced him, but eventually turned out to be an eco-terrorist hoping to steal the formula. The terrorists botched the job, causing an explosion which killed them, but sent Midas screaming in flames. Burning alive, he leapt into a river of toxic waste, and emerged a monster entirely composed of it. Skilled in mechanical engineering as well as toxic waste studies, Midas constructed the Blood Rose robot, who became the love of his life, aiding him in a life of crime that especially worked against Oliver Queen.
