History

Arthur Parks was a brilliant research scientist who invented small but very powerful laser guns that he could wear on his wrists. He first clashed with the Avengers and developed a crush on the Wasp and began wreaking havoc on New York in an attempt to impress her. He eventually went to jail, but soon busted free with the assistance of the Mandarin. Parks miniaturized his lasers and had a large array of them implanted in his body to become a “true” living laser. Count Nefaria subjected the Laser to a treatment which greatly enhanced his powers, but only temporarily. It was a ruse by the Count to acquire the Laser’s powers himself.

A side effect of Nefaria’s scheme was that Parks could not shut off his own laser energy. He apparently “died” in battle with Iron Man after he “overloaded”, but he actually only reverted to a sentient energy being. He reappeared years later completely disoriented, and was captured by Tony and Rhodey in armor together. Later, Parks took on the form as the “ghost” of the Titanium Man and revealed that the current Iron Man of the time was indeed the same as the one before the “Armor Wars”. Parks was finally defeated by Jim Rhodes in his role as Iron Man, Rhodes convinced Parks to become an employee of Stark Enterprises but realized he was just too dangerous. James Rhodes lured the Living Lasor into the focusing chamber of a wide-beam laser aimed at the Andromeda Galaxy, and activated it sending Arthur Parks into space.
