Distinctive features Glowbeam has very handsome features and a muscular build.

Carl was raised by his mother in a small logging town in upstate Vermont. Becoming a lumberjack with a local logging company, he married his high school sweetheart and had a son. His life was simple and quiet, but all that changed one day when his dying father, industrial magnate Douglas Oxford, gave his son the ring that the elder Oxford wore as the megavillain Nightring.

Carl didn't know what to do with the ring until his cousin Josh showed up on his doorstep for a visit. When Josh recognized the ring as the one that had belonged to his uncle, he convinced Carl to to learn how to use the ring as Glowbeam. When Douglas Oxford's will was read, it was discovered that he had left his vast empire all to Carl, who decided to use the family fortune to do some good in the world.

Personality Carl is a pleasant fellow, proud and protective of his family. He cares deeply about the environment, especially the forests. Having recently learned that he is one of the richest men in America has not changed his core beliefs, and he is determined to remake Oxford Industries into an environmentally-friendly conglomerate, causing him to butt heads with many of the board members. His philanthropic nature has made him a sort of celebrity.

Glowbeam has no innate megapowers.

His ring (really an alien cosmic ray converter) can project two intensities of laser beams, create a personal force field or a wall of force over an area, or protect him from flash attacks. He can create simple shapes (fists, clubs, clamps, etc.) with an effective strength of 30 tons. The ring also allows him to fly, alter his costume into any form of dark blue and/or yellow clothing, or alert him to impending danger. It augments his strength, speed, stamina, and physical and mental defenses as well.

Skills He is skilled in forestry, woodland survival techniques, and lumberjacking. In his new capacity as owner and CEO of Oxford Industries, he is undergoing business administration and manufacturing techniques training.
