  • Son to a wealthy family that lost almost everything in the 1929 stock market crash, Sheldon Sampson was haunted by dreams of an island calling to him, whispering that it would help him save America. He, his brother and their college friends found that island in 1932, a bizarre structure with alien beings that, under unknown circumstances, blessed them with incredible powers. They returned to America as The Union, comprised of Skyfox, Lady Liberty, The Flare, Blue-Bolt, Brain-Wave, and Sheldon himself as their mighty leader, the Utopian. They would fight crime and evil for decades, defending the Earth against all manner of threats. Two timelines for the Utopian have been shown, both ending in tragedy. In one, he and his allies were wiped from the Earth in 1986 after Earth's super-villains united to defeat them, removing all traces of magic and wonder from Earth and ruling in secret, with Utopian's cape kept in secret by supervillain Solomon Seltzer. Utopian lived on only in the form of cinema, also unconsciously and retroactively inspiring in the world the idea of the fictional hero Superman. In another, he lives until 2013, where he is overthrown and killed by his own allies, led by his brother and son, who resent his stubbornness, authoritative attitude and supposedly outdated moral code, intending to use their powers to remake the world.
