Quote1.png Fire was no longer my curse, but my salvation. I am Solara. Quote2.png



In the middle of a ruthless gang war which had kept him underground and away from his wife for a year, the infamous Yakuza leader Kazuya Morimoto discovered that his wife had given birth to a daughter named Reiko. Morimoto, insane with rage because his daughter was born in another man's house, poured gasoline in every room and burned his house, and family, to the ground.[citation needed]

By the time the maid returned in the morning, the house has been reduced to smoldering embers. She found Reiko in middle of the burnt structure completely unharmed and sent her to Cambridge. [citation needed]

She learned about physics from her adopted father and became highly sought after for her research on cold combustion fuels. Unfortunately, there was an accident during one of her lectures and everyone else died.[citation needed]

Niles Van Roekel identified Reiko and considered her a prime candidate for his experiments. She was the daughter of a warrior and had a mythical resistance to fire. Without a second thought, Reiko agreed to join his top secret project. Roekel seduced her with science and lined her insides with alien crystals and turned her into a human kiln, allowing her body to store high concentrations of energy and release towards at targets.[citation needed]

Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects

During the Imperfect invasion of New York, Solara encountered Venom who was seeking the power of the Turlin Neural Override for his own purposes. She then decided to insert the override on her neck to increase her power. In the end, Venom defeated Solara and she was forced to leave the override behind. Eventually, Van Roekel tasked Solara with finding and defeating Daredevil. She succeeded and Daredevil was beaten.

She then lost to the Human Torch who accompanied Iron Man and other heroes who raided on Roekel's lab. After Van Roekel was defeated by Paragon, Solara then decided to continue working with her fellow Imperfects in protecting the Earth alongside the heroes. [1]
