Arch Morton was the fellow inmate of Curtis Carr, the original Chemistro, and forced Carr to reveal the secret of the alchemy gun to him. After his release, Arch tried to recreate the alchemy gun, only for it to blow up in his face, but as a result it gave his hands transformative powers. As Chemistro he took work from the crime boss the Baron, who sent him to attack Power Man and frame Baron's rival Big Brother.[1]

When he attacked Luke Cage his powers were nullified by a device created by Carr and he was sent to prison along with the Baron.


  • Alchemy Gun: Chemistro's alchemy gun, as well as his wrist blasters, are capable of transmuting any material into any other form of matter. The devices are cybernetically linked to the user, enabling him to work any transformation he can imagine. The transformed material usually turns to dust after exposure to heat or after a certain amount of time. Therefore his alchemy gun cannot be used merely to transmute substances, such as turning lead or rock into gold.
