Bob Flaton, better known by his nickname Fitz, was born in the early 20th century. Born in New York at the beginning of the twentieth century. As a young student during the Great Depression, Fitz was convinced that one of his best friends, Sheldon Sampson, would accompany him on an impossible and absurd adventure to find the mysterious island Sheldon dreamed of. Anyone who tried to persuade Fitz to take such a trip in these difficult times would have been roundly rejected by , but Sheldon had a special charisma that made him irresistible: Not only Fitz came, but Sheldon’s brother Walter and their friends Grace Kennedy, Richard Conrad and George Hutchens, all on a small boat that sailed hundreds of miles from Cape Verde. Against all odds, a small group found a mysterious island where they found a giant portal that led them to mysterious aliens who gave them incredible superpowers and, after months of intense training, sent them back as champions of humanity. Fitz, who is now incredibly fast and can generate photon energy, calls himself The Flare and is happy to join Sheldon in his new project, the world’s first superteam: The Alliance for Justice. Together, these six powerful friends will protect the world and the American way of life, defending the country from all forms of threat by following strict and precise rules, mostly formed by Sheldon’s strong moral code. While the Flare defended the world, Fitz married his longtime girlfriend, Joyce: Together they had a son, Peter, then a daughter and finally another son. Everything was perfect… Or so it seemed.
There is a lesson Fitz’s father taught him as a child, when he left him and his mother when Fitz was only nine: Nothing lasts forever. As happy as Fitz was with Joyce and her family, he knew deep down that it wouldn’t last, and from the moment he became a superhero, he felt like the two had less and less in common. The perfect solution to his family problems came after a battle with the deadly robots of Puppeteer, in the Midwest. One of the people he saved was a 19-year-old girl, April Kelly, who was a big fan and beautiful and charming and young, just like Joyce, who hadn’t been young in years. Flair immediately fell in love with the girl and came back day after day to see her: At first he trained her to be his Wonder Girl assistant, but soon the two began a sexual affair. Fitz bought an apartment for April and even got a job at his own company, but when he tried to stand up for himself at the Union, his teammates turned their backs on him. Utopianism in particular was crystal clear: Her behavior was far below the moral standards of the team, and not only was Wonder Girl, who had no special skills, expelled from the club, but her affair was also terminated or dismissed from the club. Fitz agreed, and he broke with April….. but immediately regretted it: he returned to Joyce and divorced her, and proposed to April, who agreed to marry him. After that, of course, there wasn’t much he could do to stay in the Union, but he was happy until he was injured in a fight and April, instead of taking care of her wheelchair-bound husband, abandoned him. Finally, Fitz realized the big mistake his midlife crisis had caused him to make. ….
Fitz Fleuron is an intelligent and charming man, a hero who loves to impress the masses…. but is terribly insecure and constantly pursues dreams of youth and passion as if he were an eternal teenager. As Flare, he can fly and is remarkably tough and strong, much like his teammates, but he is also incredibly fast, much faster than the others, and can channel light energy into powerful explosions, he also has enhanced senses and can heal quite quickly, even from normally incurable injuries like those to his spine, from which he has fully recovered, albeit after several years. One of the world’s first superheroes, The Flare has all the personal characteristics and quirks of a normal man going through a devastating midlife crisis, but because of his position, the consequences of his behavior can be very serious for everyone.
