When Kevin Masterson of A-Next was attacked by his old enemies, the "Sons of the Serpent", he was heavily outnumbered, and was surround by people so he couldn't transform into his heroic identity of Thunderstrike. But help arrived in the form of a costumed heroine, called Blacklight (whose costume bore a noticeable resemblance to the costume worn by Photon). Blacklight was able to use her energy manipulation powers to fight the Sons of the Serpent. Despite her apparent newness to the superhero game, she soon showed the Serpents that she was a force to be reckoned with, especially when she demonstrated the power to form solid objects out of black light. Kevin was finally able to change into Thunderstrike and help her fight the Serpents. Thunderstrike was very impressed with her performance after the battle was won, and offered her a spot on the A-next team, but she declined, preferring to work as a solo hero. But when the evil Red Queen and her Revengers captured A-Next, Blacklight was quick to lend assistance, using her energy constructs to both free the captured heroes, and fight the villains. When the battle was over, she accepted membership with A-Next. Powers
Similar to her mother, Photon, Blacklight can generate, manipulate and transform into light. In difference, Blacklight can only do this with the black light spectrum. Her powers though are further increased giving her the abilities and strengths on par with the Green Lantern of the DC universe. She can use her black light to create concussive energy blast, create force fields, fly and create constructs purely of black light.
