Neon the Unknown (DC)
Real Name: Tom Corbet
Search for 'Neon the Unknown (DC)' on Amazon


Powers:
Flight, Fires "neonic blasts" from hands

Bio:
Corbet was a member of the Foreign Legion. While pursuing an enemy across the desert, his entire unit died of dehydration. Surely he would have suffered the same fate, if he hadn't found a magical oasis at the very last second. Tom Corbet drank the glowing water and was transformed into Neon the Unknown, with the ability to fly and shoot energy from his hands.

On December 7, 1941, Neon was recruited by Uncle Sam to be a member of the Freedom Fighters, along with several other Quality Comics heroes, and defend Pearl Harbor from the Japanese attack. Uncle Sam, Miss America, Hourman, Invisible Hood, Magno, Red Torpedo, and Neon the Unknown fought valiantly, but all but Uncle Sam died. Since then, all of the heroes who "died" in the attack have been revealed as alive, except for Magno and Neon.
