As was accustomed with youths of noble lineage, Ryand ‘ gas constant was sent to the planet Okaara, there to be trained in the arts of fight by the fabled Warlords of Okaara. When he came of age, Ryand ‘ radius ‘s fighting art earned him the attention of a exemption fighter named Primus. Primus invited Ryand ‘ roentgen to join his group of exemption fighters, the Omega Men, and assist them in their ongoing efforts to topple the Citadel. Early in his career, Ryand ‘ radius was captured by the scientific aliens the Psions and experimented upon. The experiments altered Ryand ‘ roentgen ‘s body chemistry giving him the ability to generate intense waves of heating system from his hands. ironically, both of Ryand ‘ roentgen ‘s sisters Koriand ‘ roentgen and Kommand ‘ r had alike gained superhuman abilities at the hands of the Psions years early.

Ryand ‘ gas constant remained with the Omega Men for many years fighting the Citadel vitamin a well as the galactic conquest Spider Guild. At one point, he was summoned back to his home earth to bear witness to the marriage of his sister Koriand ‘ gas constant to Prince Karras. More recently, Ryand ‘ radius ‘s powers have intensified and he has taken to calling himself Darkfire. As Darkfire, Ryand ‘ gas constant and the other Omega Men fought against the forces of Lady Styx.


  • Tamaranean Physiology
    • Energy Absorption: Like all members of the Tamaranean race, Ryand’r can harness and channel ultraviolet radiation. The power of the sun is what gives a Tamaranean their strength and vitality, flight, and other unique gifts.
    • Thermal-Blast: After being experimented upon by the Psions, Ryand’r can emit waves of concentrated super-heated energy from his hands. Able to burn, sear and flash melt anything he physically touches.
      • Radiation Production: Being the representative force for nuclear fusion Ryand’r is capable of initiating voluntary atomic detonation. Letting off a huge thermonuclear event powerful enough to register as a controlled plutonium detonation on Brainiac II’s silica scanners.[1]
    • Flight: Like all Tamaraneans, Ryand’r can absorb solar radiation to enable himself to fly.
    • Nuclear Fire Manipulation: After coming in contact with the Heartstone of Strong Force, Darkfire gained the ability to initiate thermonuclear reaction via force of will. He can now hurl ultraviolet or stellar blasts comprised of radiological plasmoid flames which carry an explosive charge behind them.[2]
      • Transformation: The added edge to his power more often than not causes Darkfire to appear as if bursting into flames.[3]
      • Energy Projection: Exposure to the Heartstone had changed the nature of Darkfire’s powers, now he could spontaneously initiate Nuclear Fusion and detonate himself akin to an atomic bomb at will. Ryand’r could even discharge nuclear fireballs from his person.
