Linus Powell was one of the many individuals given superpowers by alien interaction with their dormant metagene during the events of Bloodlines. Previously, he had been an immensely successful scientist, and even became a recipient of the Nobel Prize when he proved the possibility of travel in space faster than the speed of light. To further his experiments, he attempted to create an artificial Sun inside of his lab, using a black diamond given to him by fellow scientist Bruce Gordon as a dampener for the Fusion. These actions brought him to the attention of Eclipso, who after exhausting all other fields of attacks, was forced to use an alien Parasite, "Angon" to demolish the laboratory. Angon also fed on Powell's spinal fluids, which mixed with the explosion of his lab's light-based equipment imbued him with special Light powers. He became the superhero known as Prism.
