How Eclipso came into existence?
Eclipso made an entrance in the early comics with Bruce Gordon. He is a character named after Bruce Wayne and Commissioner Gordon because of an inside joke. Gordon is actually a scientist who is an expert on all matters regarding solar energy. One time he goes to the jungle to watch solar eclipse however he gets attacked by a sorcerer named Mophir.
The fight leads to the sorcerer jumping off the cliff but at that he attacks Gordon with a black diamond. So this forces Gordon to change into an Eclipso whenever there is an eclipse. Hence the villain emerges as a result of the split in Gordon’s body whose face resembles a partial eclipse.
He becomes a conventional villain with strength and powers. He has some weaknesses as well because when a light touch him the Eclipso gets inside Gordon’s body. The character of Eclipso later appeared in many DC comics as well as adapted into series. Many DC fans are aware of this character that comes from time to time to wreak havoc.
