The Professor was an only comics character and was not completely adapted into a character in the movie. Solomon Seltzer has always been a genius. He started talking while he was still in the womb, was reading and solving math problems before he could walk, graduated magna cum laude with a bio-mechanics degree before his friends reached kindergarten and was a billionare by age ten. He is the brains behind the scheme that made supervillains the ruler of the world (eliminating the heroes). After the superheroes were gone and the world was split into five pieces, he claimed North and South America. However, when Mister Rictus became fed up with what he was left to rule, he successfully killed Solomon and attacked the rest of the Fraternity.
