|Introduction:||X-Men Mission: Attica! Attica!|
A failed engineer, Lightmaster had a prototype suit bonded to him in an industrial accident he engineered to kill his co-workers; since then, he has turned to crime and an alliance with The Hood.
Name: Ed Lasky
Affiliation: The Hood
First appearance: March 19, 2015
Lasky was an engineer who worked in a DARPA research facility as an R&D team manager. While he was a good manager, he was a poor engineer, and was frequently the target of contempt by several of the actual geniuses he was asked to manage. When he learned that his team were considering taking their prototype to another company, he decided to arrange an accident for them but save the suit, so he'd be a hero to his employers. He set up an electrical overload for the team when they'd been in a trial room, killing them. He would be protected by secretly donning the suit. Instead, it killed them but also flowed into his chamber, activating a number of systems he had not be briefed on, changing his DNA and fusing him to the suit.
He was involved in an attempted break-out of prisoners in X-Men Mission: Attica! Attica! and is currently at large.
Lightmaster can manipulate photons to fly, create energy flashes and blasts, as well as reduce damage taken from physical attacks.
