Married couple Apollo and Midnighter were both members of a top-secret government super-team called StormWatch. To assist in their missions, Apollo was was bio-engineered to harness the power of the sun into a variety of super powers, including flight, energy blasts, and enhanced strength and durability. Midnighter has cybernetic implants that also increase his fighting abilities and, more importantly, give him an preternatural ability to consider nearly infinite tactical permutations in battle.

Apollo and Midnighter originated in the Alternate Earth of the Wildstorm Universe but were merged into Booster Gold's reality following the reality-altering events of Flashpoint. Eventually, Booster would fight alongside Apollo and Midnighter during the Dark Crisis.
