History

Silas King was a low level mutant with no apparent superhuman ability ; however, these were awakened when he was exposed to intense solar energies when stuck in the Mojave for several days after the van he used for drugs running broke down.

After discovering his powers and getting out of the hospital, he turned from drugs running to bank robbery as the supervillain Solarr. He allied with Klaw, and became a member of Egghead’s Emissaries of Evil ; however he was also beaten by several superhuman vigilantes. He ended up transferred to Project : Pegasus, where his mutant ability was studied.

At one point, the Fomori named Bres, a prisoner of the Project, managed to use his infernal powers to take some control over the Project without anyone realizing it. Later, he killed a guard named Harry Winslow, and a few minutes later opened Solarr’s cell to create a diversion. Solarr happened on Winslow’s body, and incinerated him, as he hated the guard.

However, Bres then animated the charred corpse and pursued Solarr, who panicked and fled ; Bres nevertheless managed to kill him. Bres was later defeated by Iron Fist and returned to his cell.
