Sparkler was a member of the Force of July.

Sparkler was a young Hispanic metahuman who was invited by B. Eric Blairman to join his patriotic super-hero team, the Force of July. Sparkler held the team's leader Major Victory in high regard and faithfully served the team.

As a member of the Force of July, Sparkler came into conflict with the super-hero team the Outsiders on more than one occasion. In his first venture, he matched powers against Outsiders member Halo and Black Lightning. In a later encounter, he fought up against Windfall.

He was eventually killed by the crazed super-villain Doctor Light during an affair known as the "Janus Directive". Doctor Light had long suffered from a psychosis relating to teenagers acting as super-heroes.

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
