Quoted!

“Scientists talk about dark matter, the invisible, mysterious substance that occupies the space between stars. Dark matter makes up 99.99 percent of the universe, and they don't know what it is. Well I do. It's apathy. That's the truth of it; pile together everything we know and care about in the universe and it will still be nothing more than a tiny speck in the middle of a vast black ocean of Who Gives a Fuck.” - David Wong, JOHN DIES AT THE END

Reputation

Staff-wielding science superhero known for his foul mouth and his eclectic fashion sense.

Biography

Jack Knight is the youngest son of Ted Knight, a super scientist and hero known as Starman. Jack always resented his father's superheroic exploits, which took him away from home and even to other worlds at times and left Jack's mother to raise her two sons by herself much of the time. That resentment lead Jack to be bitter and sarcastic by nature, scoffing at his father's idealism and focused, instead, on his own interests.

Jack got a degree in art history and delved into his passions of collecting and dealing in curios, toys and oddities. He started his own shop, Knights Past, and has grown a strong reputation for both quality and fair dealing. At the same time, his older brother, David, dreamed of becoming Starman. After their father retired due to old age, he revealed his identity and became a figure of public science education and research. David would be his father's emissary, spreading justice and the cause of enlightenment in a new age.

And then David died on his first adventure, brutally murdered by Ted's old enemies. Jack picked up the cosmic staff to avenge his brother and has been Starman ever since. He's never gotten comfortable as a superhero and tends to avoid it when he can, although he'll always come through in times of need. He just doesn't feel that comfortable with the underwear-on-the-outside set.

Character Details

Snarky, disinterested, self-aware and sour at times, Jack Knight has a jaded outlook on the world. Where his father was all idealism and self-sacrifice, Jack saw the price his family paid for those ideals and tended to wish the old man had been a bit more selfish. He's obsessive by nature, especially in his fields of interest, and can work or study meticulously for hours on end in research and cataloguing. He is meticulous about things he cares about and kind of lazy about things he doesn't. He's only just starting to care about superheroing and only then because not caring has almost gotten him killed a few times. He's sarcastic by nature and likes to make inappropriate jokes, having something of a gallows humor and not prone to be easily shocked or delicate. While introverted by nature, he's not particularly asocial and, in fact, functions well enough around others so long as they put up with his personality.
