Becoming Starlight

The StarLight

Starlight when in his star form

In the midst of a football game, Cadmus woke mysteriously without any memory of his past, and with superhuman abilities. After becoming reacquainted with his friends and past life, he became cynical and disillusioned with his peers and rejected them. However, when a cult proved attracted to Cadmus and his abilities, Cad found his powers exposed to Parker and Hunter as he was kidnapped by a local corporation, FlyCo.

Parker and Hunter proved better friends than Cad could've imagined, rescuing him and jumpstarting the so-called "Team Starlight". In order to keep himself safe from FlyCo, Cad took to the skies as the vigilante Starlight.
