“Bobby Ore: Forged In The Fire Of Hamilton’s Steel Industry” probably intended as a serial but appeared only as a story was created by Dino Caruso and George Athanasiou..
Set in 1939 Hamilton Ontario, Robert Reardon is a steel worker and community man. The “Vril Brotherhood” call up aliens from another dimension to destroy the steel plants of the world. When they attack the Hamilton steel plant, Reardon dons an experimental safety suit and stays behind to continue producing steel while his companions flee. The aliens radiate him causing a fusion between the man and the suit. Thus is created “Bobby Ore”.
