Phasing: Solon Darga possesses the ability to pass through solid matter by passing his atoms through the spaces between the atoms of the object through which he is moving. This is a power common to all natives of Bgtzl. In this way he and the object through which he is passing, Solon can temporarily merge without interacting, and each is unharmed, when Solon has finished passing through the object. When Solon is phasing, he is, for all intents and purposes, intangible. Hence, when attacked, he can shift into a phasing state even if he is not at the time passing through an object so as to allow oncoming projectiles or energy blasts to pass through him harmlessly. It also enables him to access the Phantom Zone.
Solon, like all Bgztlians, possesses the ability to phase through solid matter. He was a listless student and would be dilettante who preferred to spend his time lounging outdoors. As he approached the age of mandatory employment Solon came to Earth to audition for membership into the Legion of Super-Heroes.
Solon, however, failed the audition and was rejected from membership. He then joined with other rejected Legion applicants to form their own team known as the Legion of Super-Rejects. The team formed to take revenge on Legionnaires whose powers matched their own and prevented them from joining the team.
