History

  Takeo Sato was a Japanese actor who got to play the role of the costumed super-hero Sunburst in a low-budget TV-production. Unknowingly a mutant since birth, Takeo's solar powers kicked in when his "flying wires" snapped during the the first production day. Keeping his powers a secret at first, Takeo went public as the hero Sunburst after an encounter with the Rising Sun, when Takeo's powers were exploited by criminals. For years, Sunburst was one of Japan's prime super-heroes, before meeting his death during the Crisis, killed by the Anti-Monitor's Shadow-Demons. He was succeeded - as an actor and possibly as a hero - by Sunburst IV.

  Note: Pre-Crisis, it was Superboy who was involved in Sunburst's origin, not Rising Sun. This retcon was mentioned in Who's Who '86 #22.
