Keith Kenyon is a criminal scientist. He drinks a gold-based serum he has been working on. This grants him superhuman strength and invulnerability. He also exhibits a golden glow. Gold being yellow gives him a great advantage over the superhero Green Lantern, as his powers do not work on that color. However, he is defeated while trying to steal sunken gold needed for his endeavors. Goldface creates gold-plated armor and a ‘gold-gun’ which sprays liquid gold. After many clashes with Green Lantern, Kenyon decides to change his motif and ruthlessly began taking over criminal empires. Over time, his flesh itself became a kind of organic metal.

Goldface was first seen in Green Lantern #38 (May 27, 1965).

Goldface is a gold-plated super-villain and an enemy to Green Lantern. His entire body is yellow-colored, so Green Lantern’s power ring cannot affect him due to the yellow impurity. He later retired from terrorizing Coast City, and became a union organizer in Keystone City. In this career he interacts with the Flash, and marries Amunet Black.

Goldface was created by Gardner Fox and Gil Kane, first appearing in Green Lantern (Volume 2) #38 (1965).
