Qualities
“Normal?! Maybe I didn’t like things normal! You think you’ve got a monopoly on godhood, Seleski?!”
“Oh, yeah, that almost hurt! Haw! You pansy! C’mon, big boy, give me all you’ve got!”
Absolutely insane.

Background

Fred Bender wasn’t the smartest of men but he was good at piecing together the truth. He was able to dig into Phil Seleski’s background and figure out that he was actually the red-suited superhero known as Solar. When he demanded that Phil give him a portion of his power, Solar made the foolish decision to show Fred that omnipotence wasn’t all it was cracked it to be. He briefly gave Fred superhuman power and then took it away – his goal was to frighten Fred back onto the straight-and-narrow. Unfortunately, the experience left Bender out of his mind with desperation to achieve godhood once more. When Master Darque came to him and offered mastery of the necromantic energy dubbed ‘Darque Energy’ in exchange for servitude, Fred leapt at the chance and renamed himself Doctor Eclipse. In this form, he battled Solar several times, as well as clashing with the Secret Weapons team.

Doctor Eclipse is incredibly powerful but a close comparison of his stats against those of Solar show that he’s ultimately not quite the equal of his foe. He is, however, more than powerful enough to terrorize innocents and quite a few superhumans. Eclipse is a total lunatic now, frequently cracking jokes while killing or attempting to kill his foes.
