How sandman became himself?

    As you know Sandman was exposed to Radioactive sand. So the elements in his body would have formed ions because of the ionizing radiation. So did ionic bonding happen with Sandman's body causing a mutaion? (Because we know radiation can cause mutation.)

    Since the whole thing was made up and ridiculous, you can make up any answer you like.

    In my opinion superhero stories are often quite similar to old legends of demi-gods like Hercules or the adventures of the various gods told in polytheistic societies. Any connection to real world science tends to be rather vague, the genre doesn't lend itself to realism.
