ORIGIN STORY

When Rick Tyler was a child, his father spent much of his time doing research and the rest adventuring as Hourman. Without his father’s guidance, Rick grew into a headstrong teen who ignored the consequences and took a dose of his father’s Miraclo during a crisis. Driven by the rush of Miraclo and the thrill of heroics, Rick, against his father’s wishes, became the new Hourman and joined other legacy heroes in founding Infinity, Inc.

Like his father, the first Hourman, Rick Tyler is addicted to the rush of adrenaline—but unlike his father fell thrall to drug addiction after taking Miraclo. Beating that addiction, surviving leukemia, and enduring a close brush with death has given Rick a new reserve of inner strength. That strength and his deep devotion to his wife have reignited the spark of life inside the young hero.  Though the version of Miraclo Rick Tyler now uses isn’t addictive, Tyler is almost uncontrollably drawn to the adrenaline rush of adventuring. When crime-fighting isn’t enough, he chases excitement through extreme sports.
