From the age of five Julius and Mary McCoy knew their son was different. With an incomparable linguistic ability and immense resistance to injury only the surface of a deep reservoir of immaculate of uncanny superhuman ability, Marcus McCoy was the prodigal son of the Philadelphia family. Though bright, and powerful, the boy was raised no different from any other child. Instilled with a strong sense of morality and justice Marcus grew up to be a humble teenager.
His charismatic attitude and natural charm afforded him many friends, some of which at times abused his kindred spirit. Through the strife he continued through his high school years with a B average, uninterested in the inescapable attention associated with the perfect scores he was capable of achieving.
Sports captured his attention early, but the fear of revealing his incredible powers coupled with the doubt of actual competition drew him to more intellectual extracurricular activities. An avid debater, he was awarded many prizes for his efforts with the help of what would be a long time friend in Louis Crucey.
Now we enter the year 2013. Marcus is now a freshman at Lehman College. He has rented out a small studio apartment in the confines of the Big Apple. Four months within the lively borough of Manhattan had altered Marcus drastically. The once mild mannered kid from Newark was now an arrogant lothario, quite comfortable flaunting his illusive strength and strikingly quick wit.
With a wily group of rambunctious college youth Marcus, now using the moniker "Light" took off with entourage on an extensive road trip to Miami. For hours the team rolled on, christening the opening moments with alcohol and cigarettes, none of which McCoy partook in.
Far into route one, the foolish driver had finally reached his breaking point. His head sunk to the right as he lost consciousness and with it went the wheel. The tires screeched as the 2 ton Escalade swerved into the lane divider at just under 100 mph.
The disaster played in slow motion within the confines of McCoy's super human mind and yet he remained motionless. With all his power, in this moment, fear seized him by the throat. Befuddled by the sudden danger he simply watched, unharmed as the vehicle crushed and carved his comrades into bloody pools of flesh.
When the car finished its final roll Marcus was gone. For what would be the second time in his life he actually flew through the sky. Yet, in this liberty he found no solace. Haunted by the horror that scarred his soul Marcus decided to start a campaign against suffering. Uphold the moral values he was raised upon and embrace his power for the good of mankind.
