Frank McGee was a decorated police officer for the NYPD for twenty-six years[2] until the day the Inhuman city of Attilan blew up over the Hudson River which released the Terrigen Mist over the entire area and the world. Frank was one among many who became encased in a cocoon undergoing metamorphosis. After breaking out, Frank noticed a change in himself; his eyes began to illuminate a bright yellow color which he was able to control the intensity of.

Nur's powers

He tried to return to a normal life but he was prematurely forced into early retirement and his wife soon left him after that. Frank ended up making his way to New Attilan's bazaar for sanctuary where he came upon Auran, a member of the original city's security force. Learning of his ability and experience as a cop, Auran and Frank somehow became partners, with her giving him a Inhuman name, Nur. After stopping a sale of fake Terrigen Crystals, they were summoned to the palace by Queen Medusa and tasked with the job of locating her husband, Black Bolt, as the New Attilan Security Force.

Nur and Auran's search lead them to a nightclub where they started to canvas the area for clues to the King's whereabouts. Due to Auran's acoustic abilities, they were able to locate Black Bolt since he had been in range of his brother Maximus' proximity. As Nur pulled out his weapon, Maximus used his mind control ability to make Black Bolt speak, blowing up the entire room of the building in which they were standing.[3]

Nur survived the blast from Black Bolt's scream but Auran did not, which gave ample time for the two brothers to escape. Nur made his way back to New Attilan to inform the Queen of her husband's survival but at the loss of his partner. Nur wanted to be the one to tell Auran's daughters of her death, and that he would help look after them.[4]

Some time later, after Nur had resigned from his job as the head of the New Attilan Security Force, he agreed to help Daredevil topple Mayor Wilson Fisk's administration and recruited Cypher, Reader, and Forey to the cause.[5]



Photokinetic Projection: Nur is a Nuhuman who possesses the ability to project powerful blinding glares of light from his eyes. So far he is capable of controlling the level of illumination he projects and the distance/width within his line of sight of his target. Also his powers can produce a calm, soothing effect on others depending on the pulsation of light from his eyes.

  • Photographic Memorization: Nur can use his powers to "photograph" surroundings into his mind. He then can view the scene from different angles, and zoom any part if needed.[6]
  • Optic Blasts: Frank's able to concentrate the energy from his eyes as a high impact force projection with enough potency to punch through demons.[7]


Detective Skill: Nur is a skilled detective, capable of observation, forensic investigation, and inductive and deductive reasoning of the highest caliber. Given any mystery, he can arrive at the correct conclusions with a fraction of the data.

Interrogation Expert: Due to his experience and training as a police officer, he has an extensive knowledge of interrogation methods.



Sun Glasses: He ordinarily used to wear a set of shades to obscure his constantly active power, eventually having them modified to feed two siphoning cables into his pistols channeling and magnifying his photokinetic power through them at the cost of serious eyestrain.

Refraction Lens: Frank once made use of a magnification glass made by a Nuhuman with silicon abilities in order to focus the light he projects into scattered lasers.[8]


Attilan Pistols: Advanced laser pistols accommodated to all the veteran police forces of the Inhuman local law enforcement of new New Attilan, Frank recently had them modified to channel his illuminating gaze through them via his shades increasing their striking and blasting power several fold.
