Little is known of Stanley Beckett's early life, other than he was born in a suburb in New York, and that his parents were killed in a car accident when he was seven. He moved in with his grandparents, but his grandmother died of cancer when he was nine, so he lived just with his grandfather. As the years went by, Stanley finished school & got a job at a post office. Little did Stanley know that when he had been born, he'd accidentally been exposed to excessive amounts of nuclear radiation when he had been x-rayed (by a low-ranking nurse, who didn't know that this could have been fatal). Luckily he survived, but his DNA had been mutated.
Discovering his Powers
Stanley first discovered his amazing abilities when he was coming home from the post office. He was carelessly crossing a road without looking when a car came at him at over 70 miles an hour. Just before he was hit by the car, Spook unwittingly used his powers, and the car went straight through him. Amazed, Spook rushed home to tell his grandfather the news. His grandfather was as first skeptical of the story, but as the days went by Spook learned to control it. After a brief demonstration, his grandfather became excited. Weeks passed, and Spook learned he could also fly, shoot deadly green light from his fingers and blend in with his surroundings.
One night, while Stanley was at the cinema with some of his mates, his grandfather was mugged on the street. Stanley's grandfather was brutally beaten to death, and the mugger fled with his wallet. When Stanley discovered what had happened, he tracked the mugger to his residence. There, he picked the mugger up and flew him to the top of a nearby skyscraper. He drained some of the mugger's life energy, leaving him gasping for breath. Then Stanley kicked him as hard as he could in the guts and left him there, taking his grandfather's wallet with him.
After this event, Spook became a costumed superhero, facing villains like Dragon's Breath, Earthquake and Plague. It was during this period that he first met White Sphere, a superhero with the abilities to control gravity and create force fields. They became good friends, and teamed up several times against such villains as Quickslip, Scimitar, Serpent and Atlas.
