HISTORY: In the Silver Age, Eclipso was the alter-ego of scientist Dr. Bruce Gordon. While attempting to view a solar eclipse out in a remote jungle, a tribal sorcerer by the name of Mophir attacked Gordon. The fight caused Gordon to fall to his death off a cliff, and during the battle, Mophir had wounded Bruce with a black diamond. The Black Diamond would allow Gordon to survive, but to be transformed into the villainous Eclipso whenever an eclipse occurred.
In the Modern Age, Eclipso originated as the embodiment of the Wrath of God and the Spirit of Vengeance. During his tenure as the Spirit of Vengeance he was responsible for the Great Flood. Eventually he turned towards evil, and was cast out of Heaven. Having been cast out, he was sealed into a black diamond, called the Heart of Darkness, that could, through contact with a victim who was experiencing great anger, take possession of the victim’s body.
