Tinner was walking along a beach when a shadow came sneaking up on him. Before it even got close, Tinner looked at it. The thing stopped as if perplexed. It moved away from the shadows and was shown to be a man with shadowy features and glowing purple eyes.
The shadow thing seemed to study the innocent boy for a moment, then without warning, he started drawing in the boy's soul.
"Let his abilities flow through you, young Tinner!" a voice said out of nowhere. Tinner did as he was told and the shadow thing realized (with some measure of horror) that he was trying to suck up an infinite amount of space.
Tinner then looked very annoyed. He decided he needed a friend to help him battle. Shane Gooseman of the Galxy Rangers appeared. Shane was a super soldier with the ability to adapt to anything around him. EVERYONE felt the Quantum snap from his coming onto the planet.
