History

Origin

Paul Christian lost his legs in a subway accident, but little did he know his troubles were just beginning. He had the misfortune of being outside the New York Public Library during a fight between Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner) and Sonar. Thrown by his opponent, Rayner was slammed into Christian, toppling the man over in his wheelchair. After the battle, Rayner apologized and tried to make amends. He gave part of his ring power to Christian, the handicapped man used his own willpower to create new legs from the emerald energy. Christian's restored mobility and gave him a new lease on life. Willpower was all that was needed, while he was climbing the stairs of the Statue of Liberty his hand was slashed open by a patch of torn metal railing. The shock of pain caused Christian to break his concentration. The momentary distraction cost him his legs and they faded to nothingness. Christian vowed he would find a way to make sure he would not lose them again.

Underworld Unleashed

The demon Neron offered to augment Christian's power, giving him greater control. He was hesitant at first, but he eventually agreed to Neron's deal. As part of Neron's deal, Purgatory was to destroy by Kyle Rayner and Darkstars's Donna Troy.
