Manipulate Light: Solarr is a mutant with the Unearthly ability to absorb, store, and manipulate large amounts of energy from light, especially direct sunlight. Solarr could project a blast of heat energy that would do In damage and had a range of three areas. After 10 turns of continuous blasting, Solarr had to recharge for 45 minutes.
Heat Resistance: Solarr’s mutation made him highly resistant to heat attacks. Heat attacks are reduced -3CS versus Solarr, and then a Red FEAT roll was required to actually injure him.
Supplemental Power Supply: Egghead designed an auxiliary power supply that allowed Solarr operate at full power at night.
Silas King was born with latent mutant powers that might have remained dormant if he had not been exposed to prolonged solar radiation. A former smuggler of illicit narcotics, King was making one of his frequent runs from Los Angeles to New York City when his van broke down in the Mojave Desert. King spent several days in the desert trying to make his way back to civilization, marginally surviving on cactus pulp. The several days’ exposure to the desert sun catalyzed the latent mutation within his body that enabled certain of his cells to store solar energy. When King eventually reached civilization he was immediatly hospitalized for sunb stroke and dehydration. While recovering, he accidentaly discovered he could discharge the solar energy he had stored as heat blasts.
After recuperating, King made his way to New York City to take up a criminal career. He named himself “Solarr” and initially used his superhuman powers to rob banks. His criminal career brought him into partnership with Klaw and membership in the Emissaries of Evil, led by the criminal mastermind Egghead. However, Solarr repeatedly met defeat at the hands of such crime fighters as the Avengers, Captain America, Spider-Man, and the Thing. Eventually, the captured Solarr was imprisoned at the Project: Pegasus complex, a federal energy research center, in New York State. There his ability to store and discharge solar energy was studied by Project scientists.
