The Sunspot wiki last edited by LB70145 on 02/07/14 11:14PM View full history


Roberto first manifested his superhuman mutant powers when, at the age of fourteen, he was playing in a championship soccer match for his school team in Rio de Janeiro. Motivated by racial hatred, a boy named Keller and another member of the opposing team knocked Da Costa to the ground. The hot-tempered Da Costa retaliated by tackling Keller, who began brutally beating him. It was then that, without being aware of what was happening to him, Da Costa first manifested his superhuman strength. His body and clothing temporarily turned black in the process, and he inadvertently hurled Keller away from him. Confused and frightened, Da Costa sought help, but both the other players and most of the spectators panicked and fled. However, his girlfriend,Juliana Sandoval, who had been watching the game along with Emmanuel, stood by Roberto in his time of need.

Roberto's powers came to the attention of Donald Pierce, the renegade White Bishop of the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club. Pierce sought to murder any superhuman mutants he could find. Pierce's mercenaries failed to abduct Roberto, but kidnapped Juliana instead. The mutant telepath, Professor Charles Xavier, founder of the X-Men, had learned of Pierce's plan to kill Roberto and sent his colleague, Dr. Moira MacTaggert, and the young superhuman mutants, Karma and Psyche, to help da Costa.

Roberto agreed to meet with Pierce's men in order to obtain Sandoval's release, but the mercenaries refused to free her and intended to kill both of them instead. During a fight one of the mercenaries fired at Da Costa, who had returned to normalcy again, but Juliana leaped in front of Da Costa, taking the fatal bullet herself. Anguished with guilt that Juliana had died protecting him, Da Costa vowed to take vengeance on Pierce. Bobby joined Karma, Prof. Xavier, and another young mutant, Wolfsbane, in tracking down Pierce and they succeeded in defeating him.


His first appearance was in Marvel Graphic Novel #4 and was created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod.

Character Evolution

Originally a member of the New Mutants, Roberto has gradually accepted a more adult role with the various X-related teams.

Major Story Arcs

New Mutants

Da Costa agreed to stay with Prof. Xavier and received training in the use of his superhuman powers as a member of the New Mutants, even when it was later discovered that Professor had originally created the because the had been possessed by a Brood Queen egg inside of him seeking young mutants for future embryos. In the Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, the New Mutants were tutored by Professor X and trained in the use of their powers in the Danger Room. A founding member of the New Mutants, Bobby was a mainstay of the junior team for most of its existence and became best friends with his teammate Samuel Guthrie (Cannonball).

Meanwhile, Bobby’s father was contacted by the Hellfire Club and became a member of its secret Inner Circle under the alias of White Rook. He was the only person in the Inner Circle without superhuman powers. His performance in that role was almost unnoticed.

Sunspot and Wolfsbane were injected with the same drug that gifted Cloak and Dagger with their powers. Unable to control himself, Bobby attacked the X-Man Colossus until the New Mutant Magik returned the powers to the original owners.

Empath of the Hellions turned Bobby and his teammate Magma over to the Gladiators, where they were forced to battle for entertainment by his former teammate Karma. Later, during a trip to Asgard, Bobby gained a job as security in a tavern. After lifting Volstagg over his head, he befriended the Warriors Three. Bobby seriously entertained the idea of staying, as heroes were honored and worshiped in Asgard and he was hated and feared as a mutant on Earth.

After their adventure in Asgard, the New Mutants found themselves under the guidance of a new teacher, Magneto, a fact that Bobby had a hard time dealing with. After reading Professor Xavier's personal files on himself, speculating that he could one day turn evil due to his arrogance, Bobby took a brief leave of the school.

While watching the Wildways, Bobby was captured by Spiral and Mojo, and mentally controlled by Psylocke into joining a new show, the Bratpack. After a brief battle with the New Mutants, Psylocke was freed from her mind control and freed the others as well. The New Mutants later battled the X-Men after they had been turned to the X-Babies by Mojo, until they were broken of their brainwashing and defeated the spineless one, Mojo.

Fallen Angels

During a friendly soccer game, Bobby accidentally gave Sam Gurthrie a concussion. Believing himself to be danger to his team, Bobby ran away. After living on the streets, Bobby saved a runaway mutant called Chance from a group of thugs. When Bobby's powers failed, Chance abandoned him and fled with an alien girl called Ariel. Bobby was rescued by Warlock, who tried to convince Bobby to return to the New Mutants, but Bobby felt he was not worthy to rejoin the team and wished to be left a pariah. Warlock suggested that they stick together.

Bobby decided to become a villain and rob a church, but found himself unable to go through with it. The pair were found by a duplicate of Jamie Madrox and Siryn, who attempted to return them to the New Mutants. A cyborg called Gomi propositioned Bobby to join the Fallen Angels, a group primarily made up of adolescent mutant thieves organized by the mutant criminal called the Vanisher. Among his recruits were the young mutant Boom Boom, Gomi and his two cybernetically-enhanced lobsters Bill and Don, Chance, Ariel, the duplicate Madroxes, and Siryn.

Vanisher teleported the Fallen Angels to the Valley of the Flame on Dinosaur World, where they were joined by Moon Boy and Devil Dinosaur. After Devil Dinosaur accidentally crushed Don the lobster, Gomi spoke of not leaving friends after an accident or tragedy, which struck a cord with Bobby and he began to second-guess his decision to leave the New Mutants. After all of the mutants' powers temporarily went out-of-whack due to Chance, Ariel suggested that they all leave and teleported them to the Coconut Grove, her home planet. The inhabitants of the Coconut Grove and the leader, Unipar, captured the Fallen Angels, intending to experiment on them in order to continue their evolution, but the Angels worked together to defeat them and returned home.

Bobby and Warlock returned to the New Mutants in time to aide the them against Cameron Hodge and The Right. During the battle, Doug Ramsey jumped in the path of a bullet intended for Wolfsbane, killing him. Magneto ordered the children never to use their mutant powers without his permission, a fact that Bobby immediately defied and stated that Magneto didn't give them their powers and they could use them as they pleased.

The mutants did not stay under the care of Magneto, as Cannonball and Mirage decided to move the team out from under Magneto's thumb. Magneto claimed the X-Men and the New Mutants were to be his army against the coming war between humans and mutants, however Magneto allowed the New Mutants to leave, stating that, in time, they would find his ways right and Bobby would be the first to join him. Bobby and the New Mutants were introduced to X-Factor and began to live on Ship, merging with the X-Terminators.


Sunspot was contacted by mutant businessman, Gideon, after his father died. Gideon persuaded Sunspot into joining him, claiming to help him manage the family fortune. Gideon was actually a member of a group of mutants known as the Externals, who believed themselves to be immortal. Gideon believed that Sunspot was also an External, but after several harsh tests and experiments, Gideon was proven wrong. The tests overloaded him, giving a side effect that gave Bobby the ability to produce concussive blasts of heat and light. He was saved by his former teammates of the New Mutants that had reformed as X-Force. Sunspot joined the team. When Gideon experimented on Sunspot, he was able to copy his powers and give them to a test subject. The result was Reignfire.


Reignfire became the leader of the Mutant Liberation Front, a mutant terrorist group. Reignfire gave hints that he was really Sunspot during the M.L.F's confrontation with X-Force. At that time, the real Sunspot had went into a transport portal while battling the M.L.F.'s Locus. In their next encounter, X-Force's leader, Cable, telepathically restored Sunspot's memories. It turned out that Reignfire actually switched places with Sunspot through a telepathic link. Sunspot finally regained control.

Sunspot was later blackmailed by Selene, the Black Queen of the Hellfire Club into joining. She told him that Gideon's Damocles Foundation was attempting more experiments similar to the one that created Reignfire. Selene and X-force went to stop him, but found out that Selene wanted the process for herself, and subdued the team. Selene then offered to resurrect Juliana if Bobby joined the Hellfire Club. Bobby agreed, but Selene only partially kept her word. She resurrected Julianna's spirit, and put it in the body of a comatose patient. Sunspot served as the Black Rook, keeping it a secret from his friends. Sunspot also became the head of the Los Angeles branch of X-Corporation, a search and rescue organization for mutants.

Sebastian Shaw approached Sunspot as Lord Imperial of the Hellfire Club, offering him the Black Knight position in his Lords Cardinal. He convinced Sunspot to accept by telling him that he was trying to change the club for the better. Donald Pierce soon challenged Shaw again, leaving Pierce decapitated and Shaw hospitalized. Sunspot then claimed the Lord Imperial position, hoping to use the club for a force for good.

At the beginning of the Young X-Men series, Sunspot was revealed to be the new leader of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants by Cyclops. He is joined on the team by his former New Mutants comrades Cannonball, Danielle Moonstar, and Magma. In a battle with the X-Men, Sunspot is injured when Wolf Cub slashed his chest and face. It is revealed that Donald Pierce is pretending to be Cyclops using an image inducer, in order to have Sunspot, the new Lord Imperial, killed.

Rejoining the New Mutants

Karma and Moonstar have gone missing after searching for a possible new mutant. Cannonball forms a team to find them, composed of former New Mutants. They find that Legion is behind it, and the team fights him. After losing to Legion (several times), it is Moonstar that saves the day. The team stays together after this. Recently, his old friend Doug has been brought back to life.

Second Coming

Roberto and his newly assembled team are commanded by Cyclops to infiltrate Cameron Hodge's facility and take down the Right. Cipher, Warlock, Magma, Karma, Sunspot, and Dani Moonstar enter the building and attack hundred's of Right soldiers (the creepy ones with the smiley faces). The battle seems to be going in their favor until Cameron Hodge joins the battle. Karma attempts to posses Cameron and in doing so allows him to track her. In the fight Karma loses her leg to one of Cameron's talons. Cypher realizes that the New Mutants are going to fail if something drastic isn't done. He asks Warlock to take Cameron's life force using his techno organic virus. Warlock saves the day by defeating Cameron.

Later during the Nimrod invasion of Utopia, Sunspot is seen fighting Nimrods in the tunnels below San Francisco. He is part of a small team consisting of Husk, Boom Boom and Avalanche that have been assigned to stop the Nimrods from entering through the tunnels.

Roberto and the Aguilar Family

Roberto met the Aguilar family. As he befriends Christina Aguilar, they went to a walk but a branch fell down on them. Sunspot saved her, but her engagement ring was lost. Roberto told her that her fiance would marry her even if the ring was lost, as long as they love each other. Christina introduced Roberto to her family which accepted him even if he was a mutant. However, Euphy did not like him unlike the other members of the family. Though they have arguments, Sunspot stays calm. One night during a dinner, an anti-mutant group attacked. Sunspot discovered that its boss was wearing Christina's engagement ring. He took down that team and was able to retrieve the ring. The family thanked him for the act of heroism that he had done. Christina offered him to stay with the family, but Sunspot refused, because he did not want the family to get into his issues, and didn't want to cause further damage to the family's relationship. Mr. Aguilar understood the situation and told Christina about it.

The Avengers

Along with Cannonball, Roberto is asked by Captain America to join the Avengers on stand-by. After Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Thor are captured on Mars, the stand-by team is activated by Captain America and dispatched to rescue their team-mates and defeat Ex Nihilo.

Joining The Avengers

After the conflict between the Avengers and the X-Men, Captain America decided that his team, the Avengers should have done more to help mutants instead of allowing the world to hate them. As a result, he asked for various mutants to be part of the ranks of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, as well as forming a team of Avengers lead by Havok. Sunspot joined the main Avengers team in Tony Stark's plan to make the Avengers bigger than ever.



A side effect of the experiments Gideon preformed on Sunspot, cause a rapid acceleration of his mutant gene. This change also causes his mutant gene to continuously evolve, making all his powers and abilities stronger as time passes. The constant evolution of his mutant gene also gives him new powers/abilities.

Superhuman Conditioning:

The mutation of Sunspot's genetics has increased his conditioning, both physically and mentally, to superhuman levels.

Superhuman Stamina:

Sunspot has a highly efficient muscular structure, that eliminates the fatigue toxins his body produces, allowing him to preform physical activities for long durations of time.

Superhuman Strength:

The limits of Sunspot's strength is unknown, both in Solar Form and outside his Solar Form. Sunspot has been seen using his superhuman strength when not in his Solar Form. Sunspot can increase his physical strength at will by adding more energy to his cells. The original limits of his strength allowed him to lift 25 tons. Since then, his strength has increased, allowing him to lift 50 tons effortlessly. There's no limit to the extent of Sunspot's strength: It constantly increases based off of the stored energy in his body, the intensity of the sunlight, progression of his powers, and the constant evolution of his powers.

Superhuman Durability:

Sunspot's skins, bones, and muscles are extremely tough and dense (due to his mutation); He can endure far more damage then normal humans and most superhumans. His durability provides his body with the needed protection to be able to lift the massive weights. His durability also prevents his muscles from tearing or straining, while lifting heavy weights. Recently, Sunspot has been seen withstanding the impact of a eighteen-wheeler moving at 100 mph and remain nearly unharmed.

Superhuman Agility:

Sunspot's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete, finest human specimens, and most superhumans.

Superhuman Reflexes:

Sunspot can react at the speed of light. His mind and eyes can process information so fast, that time appears to slow down, allowing him to react accordingly.

Superhuman Speed:

Sunspot can move at great speeds, easily surpassing supersonic speed. Because Sunspot is constantly absorbing solar energy, he can easily move at the speed of light. He is immune to the effects of high speed travel including friction and inertia.The limits of his speed aren't known, partly because he can add energy to his cells increasing his speed.


After Gideon's experiments, Sunspot began to test out his new found powers and discovered that he was able to project blasts downwards in order to achieve flight. When he had not fully realized this ability, Sunspot would leave a small trail behind him as he flew, that would represent the solar energy that he was emitting. Now however, Sunspot is able to release his energy in order to achieve flight without having to leave any kind of trail. He can fly at the speed of light without any difficulty, however, his normal "cruising speed" has been stated to be 150 mph. His top speed has yet to be determined.

Superhuman Senses:

Sunspot has extremely accurate senses (sight, hear, smell, taste, and touch), beyond that of normal humans. To what extent his senses are heighten is unknown.


When Sunspot's powers first manifested, he did not have a heightened sense of invulnerability; The evolution of his mutant gene has made him incredibly resistant. Sunspot is capable of withstanding high amounts of impact forces, deflect high-caliber bullets, sustain himself when exposure to temperature/pressure extremes, and powerful energy blasts without injury.


Sunspot constantly absorbs solar energy and can generate his own energy, both which supplements his cells and body; He can go without sleep/rest, food and drink, survive unaided in space, and his body evacuations can become unneeded. Sunspot can also sustain himself in any environment.


Sunspot is unaffected by the weather; His movements, actions, and senses aren't hindered by the weather in any way.

Superhuman Regeneration:

When Sunspot powers first manifest he was only able to recover from minor injuries, as his powers progressed, he's developed a healing factor that his similar/ somewhat superior to Wolverine, allowing him to recover from serious/fatal injuries with great efficiency and speed. He can rapidly recover from any disease, poison, virus/bacteria, or any biological threat. He can also regenerate lost/destroyed limbs, muscles/organs, and nerves. Because Sunspot can absorb energy, he can increase the extent and efficiency to which he recovers/regenerates. Sunspot's ability to heal keeps him at optimal health and his physical prime, granting him immense longevity.

Energy Generation:

Gideon exposed Sunspots body to massive amounts of solar energy in order to test the limits of his solar absorption. After these experiments, Sunspots body was overloaded with solar energy, and later became able to generate his own energy. At first he was only able to generate solar energy, but as his power progressed, he's become able to generate different types of energy. The energy he generates can be used for various purposes which include: weapons, concussion beams, and enhancing his powers/abilities.


Sunspot can drain any material, substance, or form of energy. He can integrate them into his body and the their capabilities and become stronger physically.

  • Energy Absorption: Sunspot can absorb different types of energy, to enhance his powers and abilities. He can release massive amounts of energy from his body at once in every direction, causing devastating damage. Sunspot can absorb energy and energy-based attacks into his body and re-release it as a different type of energy. He can also redirect energy-based attacks back at whoever or whatever discharged it. Sunspot has learned how to absorb energy from the light the moon projects. He becomes stronger, faster, more durable, etc. when he comes in contact with moonlight. When Sunspot first learned he had the ability to draw energy from the stars themselves, the energy that they project only marginally boosts his powers, because by the time it reached Earth it had diminished. Since then, he's learned how to fully harness the power from the Stars, greatly increasing his powers/abilities. Sunspot is constantly absorbing energy directly from the Sun, even at night. Although never stated, Sunspot absorbs large amounts of Solar energy (even at night), this is evident due to the fact that he is able to maintain his powers at a high level, with no signs of strain on his body. When Sunspot first gained his powers, he was only able to absorb energy directly from the Sun during the day, and then his powers would diminish greatly at night. His ability to harness the power of the Sun has greatly increased; Even if a Solar Eclipse occurs, he still able to absorb large amounts of the Sun's energy. Sunspot has learned to absorb cosmic energy and utilize it in various ways; He can channel the absorbed energy into his strength, durability, and regeneration. Sunspot has learned to absorb kinetic energy (the energy created by movement) and use it to augmenting his strength and regeneration of his body. When absorbing kinetic energy, Sunspot becomes very hard to to fight and can make opponent(s) incapacitated. Sunspot can drain energy from individuals and objects. He can drain physical energy from a target or group, making the affected physically weaker (or causing them extreme fatigue) while gaining their strength and stamina.
  • Heat and Light Absorption: After the experiments that Gideon performed on Sunspot, he gained the ability to absorb Heat and Light into his cells to augment his strength and his other powers/abilities in the same way that he is able to do with energy from the Sun, and other sources. It's unknown if he would have been able to achieve this fineness over his abilities if Gideon had not experimented on him.

Solar Energy Manipulation:

After Gideon exposed Sunspot to massive amounts of Solar Energy, he eventually gained the power to generate and control solar energy. His cells convert solar energy into energy usable by the body; This energy is stored through converting molecules of ADP (adenosine diphosphate) in his cells into ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The energy is released when necessary by breaking a chemical bond in the ATP molecules, converting them back to ADP. Sunspot's body becomes cloaked in darkness because he drains all the ambient light from his skin. He has the ability to re-channel solar energy, and uses it for a variety of purposes. Sunspot has the ability to generate items or weapons out of solar radiation energy, and concentrate solar energy into abeam of destructive force (capable of incinerating anything in its path). Having control over solar energy, gives Sunspot a wide array of other ablities and capabilities.

Solar Form:

When Sunspot activates his power to its truest potential, he assumes a dark form devoid of light (that is at its most prime state to absorb solar energy), because he drains all the ambient light from his skin, and his eyes have a completely white corona; In his Solar Form, Sunspot is immensely stronger, faster, and durable then normal humans. Black globes can be seen floating around him, as well as a field that is either bright yellow or white, while he's in his Solar Form.


Sunspot has the ability to generate, manipulate and absorb light particles. He can project light in intense waves when he absorbs and re-channels solar energy and absorb ambient wavelengths, making himself stronger. He can also use light to heal himself and others. Sunspot is able to bend the light around him to become invisible. He can generate blasts of photon energy, create force-fields/shields of light, and if necessary ride light-waves in order to fly. Sunspot can use light particles to create constructs and holographs, and is able to mentally repel photons bringing an area in total darkness.

Fire Manipulation:

Sunspot can generate, manipulate/control, and absorb fire. Sunspot is immune to all forms of Heat and Fire; His skin and entire internal body are also immune to all forms of Heat and Fire. Fire/flames simply add to his abilities and his mutant metabolism is able to easily convert them to augment his abilities, this includes heat powers that are directed at him, as well as heat that is present because of weather conditions. Sunspot has also been seen with the ability to absorb the energy that fire gives off and has remained unharmed while walking through it. Sunspot is also immune to electricity, and remains unharmed when electricity is used against him. Sunspot has the ability to project heat in intense waves when he absorbs and re-channels Solar Energy from any part of his body, to raise the temperature; Sunspot can also absorb heat into his body to lower the temperature in his immediate area. He can project and absorb heat directly into/from people, causing intense discomfort to their fluctuating body temperatures. After Gideon exposed Sunspots body to massive amounts, he later gained the ability to fire blasts of heat and concussive force. Sunspot also has been seen with the ability to project light without having to fire these blasts in order to light up certain areas of darkness.

Sunspot can create nova flames, however, the exact temperatures of his nova flames are not known. Sunspot can also surround his entire body in nova flames and can maintain his Nova Form indefinitely. Sunspot can release all of his body's stored energy in one, intense, omnidirectional "nova-burst," which can reach well over 1,000,000 degrees; This violent discharge uses massive amounts of his bodies energy at once.

Sunspot has the ability to generate and manipulate dark fire, (the destructive aspect of fire) that is inextinguishable by normal means, in the exact same way as normal fire. He can turn dark fire into various tools, objects, weapons and other items. He can also use dark flames to create semi-living constructs and other structures of varying permanence. Because dark fire is so power, Sunspot can use it to inflict varying levels of pain on others.

Sunspot has learned how to generate and manipulate Hell-Fire, by tapping into the Sun's destructive power. He can project Hell-Fire from his hands, eyes, mouth, in the form of any object or creature he imagines. He can channel Hell-Fire into any object in his hands, instantly making it into a weapon. Sunspot can form walls of Hell-Fire and form it into any shape or structure. Sunspot can use Hell-Fire to inflict various levels of pain.

Sunspot has the power to generate and manipulate cosmic flames under any conditions, even the vacuum of space or underwater. The flames are so intense that matter is destroyed without leaving a trace. His control over the flames is so powerful, they only burn what he wants them to.

Radiation Control:

Sunspot can manipulate subatomic particles to generate and emit intense radioactivity. Sunspot is also immune to all radiation, and its effects. He can absorb different types of radiation and use it for various purposes (augment his strength, durability and even regenerate of his body); He's able to turn radiation energy into various tools and structures. Sunspot can generate radiation to melt objects, release electromagnetic pulses to disrupt technology (biological or technical), and cause a nuclear detonation. Sunspot can form armor around his entire body made of radiation (that glows a bright yellowish green); The armor grants him further protection and gives him a physical boost.

Plasma Manipulation:

Sunspot has the power to generate and manipulate all forms of plasma (fire, electricity, solar flares, light, etc); He's immune to its effects and doesn't become overwhelmed by the large amounts of energy. He is able to project concussive dark plasma energy blasts from his hands, with about 20 tons of force behind them at their most powerful. Sunspot has the physical ability to envelop his entire body or portions of his body with plasma (which ranges inches from his body), creating armor. In his Plasma Form, his body is no longer solid; Projectiles that are not melted pass harmlessly through his body.

Anger Empowerment:

Professor X has worked extensively with Sunspot, in order to help him control his anger. He's taught Sunspot how to keep a level head in strenuous situations, and not let his anger get the best of him. The Professor has also helped Sunspot figure out and understand why he's so hot headed. With the help of Professor X, Sunspot has learned to channel his anger into unlimited amounts of power, while remaining in complete control and in a calm state of mind; The madder he gets, the more powerful he becomes. Now that he has learned how to control and utilize his anger, Sunspot is able to use it to fuel his powers and abilities.

Decelerated Aging:

Sunspot is always drawing power from the Sun, therefore, he ages at a much slower rate then normal humans, somewhat similarly to Wolverine. Sunspot's aging is further slowed by his ability to regenerate at such a quick rate.


Combat (Unarmed/Armed) Advanced:

As part of the X-Men, Sunspot has been trained by the likes of Wolverine and other mutants in combat. Since joining the Avengers, Sunspot received further training. He's further honed his skills by fighting/training against strong opponents such as Captain America, Black Panther, and Daredevil. Sunspot has mastered many forms of unarmed and armed combat, by fighting and training with the X-Men and Avengers.
