*The Midnighter is a bio-engineered living weapon, a killing machine of the highest order, whose combat skills make him one of the most dangerous beings on or off the planet. Possessing enhancements that allow him to anticipate a myriad possible threats before they happen, while enabling him to formulate an equal number of potential counterattacks, Midnighter checkmate's his adversaries before their first pawn is moved.
After first being encountered by StormWatch, Midnighter, along with his companion Apollo, soon helped launch a radical new enterprise, The Authority, which fast became Earth's most powerful super-group. In his off time, when he isn't saving the world with his teammates, Midnighter enjoys his own special brand of R & R -- going into action as a solo agent wherever his unique talents are needed, dispatching justice with a vengeance! *Source: WorldStorm #1
