David Shenk is the leader of the group calling themselves the Southern Knights. He is a scientist whose love of comics motivated him to give himself super-powers. Can generate electricity, up to and including lightning bolts, and can fly. He often pressures the team into adopting superhero conventions such as wearing costumes and patrolling the city, but underneath such superficial pretensions, he is genuinely concerned with saving lives.
