History: Born in the year 4592 AD, Charles Grant Jr. was sent back in time by his parents when the Earth was invaded by aliens and it became clear that they were doomed. Charles and Eliza Grant, using a device stolen by Eliza from the lab she worked at sent young Charles to the distant past to be cared for by ancestors.
Upon arriving in upstate NY, in the late 1970’s, Charles was found on the doorstep of Mildred and Ronald Grant. The baby had a note explaining that he was a distant cousin, but the author was anonymous. The couple took Charles to the authorities, and after much legal wrangling were able to adopt him as their own.
Charles grew up as an average child, without super powers of any sort. Upon reaching the age of 18, his modified genetic code initiated a cellular transformation, and Charles began to change. He emerged from what he thought was a terrible flu with his powers.
At first confused, Charles learned his true nature after a second visitor, sent at exactly the same time as him, but scheduled to arrive 18 years later appeared in his college dorm room one night. The visitor, a small robot designated BZ9 – explained his history to him and what his purpose was. His parents had meant for him to help humanity, to protect and keep them safe, and more importantly, prepare them to face the future extinction event.
Inspired by the masked heroes of the 1930’s and 40’s, Charles decided the best way he could do this was to make himself known as a costumed hero. He donned the name “Helios” and debuted in NYC, where he prevented an ocean liner from being destroyed by terrorists.
After a few years years of patrolling the world and earning the trust of millions, Helios decided to form a team of superpowered heroes with several of the companions he had met over the course of his adventures. They called themselves the Sentinels of Liberty, and with some roster changes, went on to keep the planet safe for another 11 years.
In this time, Helios met, fell in love with and married his teammate Athena. They had a son, Michael, who inherited some of his father’s abilities, and who continued on the Helios legacy as Helios Jr., a member of the Sentries.
Helios perished in the invasion of 2019 at the hands of the extra-dimensional invaders known as the M’Kra. When the M’Kraan energy drills threatened to destroy the Earth’s magnetosphere, Helios intervened, destroying the orbiting energy platform, at the cost of his life.
