Quote1 Let me be clear. I have the technology in my body to track you across the Multiverse and torture you in ways that test the boundaries of your anatomy. I've washed the blood of Gods off my knuckles when they've misbehaved. I will find you and deliver you to a personal hell. I'm the Midnighter. Quote2
Midnighter src

Midnighter, sometimes known as his alias of Lucas Trent, is a vigilante formerly attached to Stormwatch, before becoming an agent of the God Garden.

True Origin

Midnighter does not know his own history, only that he was an agent of the Gardener. In order to fit in with society, he adopted the alias of "Lucas Trent".[4]

Adopted Origin

At the age of fourteen, farmhand Lucas Trent was abducted by aliens while he was returning home from a day's work in Kosovo.[3] The aliens experimented on him and others. While one of the other test subjects, Andrew Pulaski, was given powers on the level of Superman, Lucas had a more subtle power set. Some ten years after Pulaski was kidnapped, Trent escaped captivity, and set out to work as a mercenary.[5]

Stormwatch

Lucas has been following Apollo - his former fellow captive Pulaski - for over a year and decided to reveal himself by intervening in Stormwatch's recruitment attempt.[6] He had admiration for Apollo's methods and drive and praised him on violently taking down a child pornography ring. Martian Manhunter had originally only wanted Apollo for their team, but after seeing Midnighter prove his worth by showing off his skills, J'onn invited both to join.[7]

Grayson

At some point in time, Midnighter left Stormwatch and became an operative of The Garden, working against Spyral and Agent 37, Dick Grayson. During this time, Apollo left him after he revealed that Lucas Trent is not his real name; after his initial sadness, he started to actively date again. He was looking for fun, companionship and love, not having ever known what any of them truly were, as he had only ever had one person in his life. He also took up the name/title 'M', saying that it was time for a change, and that Lucas isn't his real name. He also began to search for the truth of what happened to him when he was younger and why it had to happen to him.

The Authority

At some point, Midnighter, Apollo, and Steel were recruited by Superman and Manchester Black to join the Authority and rescue June Moone from a personal hell created when her fears were made real by the power of the Enchantress.[8]

The Authority was then attacked at Dubai by Coldcast; Fleur-de-Lis; Iron Cross and Siv,[9] but the heroes eventually managed to defeat their opponents.[10]

Later, Midnighter and Apollo left Earth together with their new comrades to free Warworld,[11] however, their first battle against Mongul and his champions was a disaster. Lightray was killed, Apollo was mortally wounded and the entire team except Midnighter was captured.[12][13]
