Ben Tucker was a high school student living in Westwood, California with his single father when he saw an alien spacecraft crash into the ocean. Ben found Sha-Han the captain of the ship who gave him a Circlet of Power before dying. Ben told his father of this amazing event but his father didn't believe him; worrying his son was spending too much time focused on comic books. Sha-Han later appeared to Ben as a spirit and instructed him in the use of the Circlet of Power.

Ben found he could use the Circlet of Power to transform into a super-humanly powerful form, which he dubbed Solarman. He fought Gormagga Kraal.
