Thirsting for vengeance against the men who cost him his sight, he discovers a pair of special glasses which give him back his sight so long as he avoids the light. With his glasses giving him a monstrous appearance, he creates the terrifying identity of Nightro, with which to combat evil (starting of course with the two men who first injured him).
