Noah Pastenetti was a torch for the Gotham mob for years. He earned the nickname "Arclight" because of the manner in which he detonated his bombs. He eventually fell in love with a reporter named Alicia Parker. She used his stories to write a bestseller, keeping his identity a secret, until one day she dropped it on a news broadcast. The mob was not amused, and they kidnapped Pastenetti and locked him up in an unfinished nuclear reactor before blowing the place up (the plant had never gone online and they were trying to collect on the insurance money). Pastenetti wasn't killed, however, but rather transformed into an energy being. Placed inside a containment suit, though his altered state left him quite mad. He blamed not only Parker but ALL reporters and decided to try and kill as many as possible. Ten years after his supposed death, he turned up in Washington D.C.
