fought the Doom Patrol.
After the DC Reboot following Crisis on Infinite Earths, Reactron was renamed Benjamin Martin

and the Doom Patrol though his powers were largely unchanged.  He was a member of the Suicide Squad for a
while before he was reimagined during the “New Krypton”
storyline.  After this he was given a
heart of Gold Kryptonite, similar to Metallo. 
During one battle he killed Supergirl’s father, Zor-El.  Reactron then destroys New Krypton in a
suicide attack.
