Comments: Created by Steven Zyskowski and Terral Lawrence.
Caine Dorr informs me that it was actually an attempt to cure his AIDS that gave him his powers. As I'm not too familiar with the character, I can't say for sure which of the two slightly different accounts is accurate, so if anyone else can confirm, it'd be appreciated.
