Vakk worked as a lab assistant. While working under the direction of the facilitie's chief scientist, he was struck by a beam of multi-colored light that originated from another dimension. The exposure granted him the power to alter the color of any object.
He traveled to Earth to try out for the Legion of Super-Heroes. Due to the severity of its limitation, his power was deemed useless and his application was rejected. He was then approached by the Legion of Substitute Heroes and offered a spot with them. He accepted and joined the subs.
- Color Alteration: Color Kid has the power to alter the color of any living being or object. This was probably done by altering the spectrum of light, making the object appear a different color.
