History: Radio engineer Bruce King stumbled across a strange phenomenon while working with ultra short radio waves. First came a neutralisation of heat waves, and intense cold resulted, then, on a shorter wave, complete, impenetrable darkness, completely neutralising light. Designing a costume resistant to both the cold with special lenses to see in the dark, King became the adventurer King of Darkness. He later found another wavelength that neutralised gravity, allowing him to fly.
