There was a controversial solar energy test going on in the Arizona Desert, a sun gun. A particle beam of experimental light was fired across the Earth's surface. Scientists and military types were going nuts all trying to trace the line of fire. Anything organic this beam hits is mutated and empowered completely at random. Lucien Gates was 232.6 miles away from the sun gun, on the beach talking to beautiful girls in bikinis and soaking up some sun rays. The particle beam hit him but it didn't hurt. It felt amazing, his brain was firing off thoughts at billion miles per hour, every nerve ending hums and then boom a light bomb.
