Derrick Jacobs, professional bassist gained the power to manipulate light and fire solid beams of it from his body and the ability to teleport. He has learned to make the light energy flare out of his body creating a flash that blinds foes. After a close encounter with Deadrock, the visor of Derrick’s original costume broke, leaving him in fear of Deadrock and of being seriously injured due to his costume’s inefficacy at protecting him. He attempted to provide extra protection with a helmet and extra padding, but it made no difference when next he came across The Granite Goliath. He takes losses very hard and blamed himself harshly when The Cadre escaped after the prison raid in Issue #3.
