The original was working on a bio-regenerative formula I believe when he had to undergo the process to become Steel. It's possible that they were a bit more like Wolverine beyond the metal skeletons. My own theory was the second Steel's death was faked after he sustained those injuries, letting him heal somewhere in private and have a real life without being coerced to live up to a legacy he didn't want.

Are you sure that you are not talking about Major Glory? (Guy Garnder's idol) I remember the Giffen JLA issues pretty good and don't remember Steel being in them. I could be wrong... To keep the orginal thread of an idea going I personally liked Steel from Detrtiot based JLA.I remember at the time reading those issues being shocked Proffesor Ivo's andriods killed him so mercilessly. On a personal note I was living in Michigan for a bit I found the character interesting. (although imo Vibe was the weakest character) As always good reading to you all. Anyone else remember the Steel series from the 70s? ;\)

TJ is right. It's during the Adam Hughes issues and leads up to the wonky Mr. Miracle android sacrificing himself (everyone thinks it's really Mr. Miracle).

I liked the experiment of the JL Detroit but the execution didn't cut it. And sadly, the team gets blamed for the stories being bad. Vibe was the weakest, but his death really highlighted the character and he's had a good story or two in Justice League Unlimited book. It's sorta like how Countdown to Infinite Crisis is predicated on the team and characters from the Giffen League being jokes that no one took them seriously and barely competent, unable to separate the characters from the book.
