Kaiser Krieger was a normal boy living in Germany, until, at the age of four, his mutant powers began to surface, at first his parents were able to pass them off as glare from the sun, or that people were seeing things, but that changed when Kaiser was playing in the park and accidentally destroyed the climbing frame with a beam of light, his parents quickly rushed him home, but it was too late, Kaiser was known around the town as a mutant, other children were no longer allowed to play with him, he was no longer allowed into shops.

At the age of five Kaiser was sent an invitation to come and join the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters, an invitation his parents gladly accepted, as it would allow Kaiser to escape the persecution of the townspeople, and to make friends with people like him. When he first arrived at the institute Kaiser was a shy, quiet boy, but as time passed he began to make friends, and even became a star player on the school's soccer team.

Kaiser became known in the student body, not only for his soccer skills, but also for performing tricks of light, such as writing words in colors of light that people had requested, projecting holograms of celebrity faces onto his own face, or using his powers to create a point of light on people's foreheads, these actions prompted a student to give him the name the Laser, a name Kaiser disliked, so he stopped performing his tricks, until his friends stopped calling him the Laser, and instead called him Lightman, a name that Kaiser did like.
