Quote1 I thought Starbright had to be an outsider. Another freak, who could sympathize with the freaks. But it wasn't like that. A straight white boy who saw hope for everyone got me to see -- that maybe there was hope after all. For everyone. Quote2
--Starbright (Simon Siezmanski)[src]

Chet Markham was known as Starbright during his heroic career. Growing up with a wealthy family, in a small town in Connecticut, Chet was a star quarterback of his high school's football team. When he wasn't at school, Chet became a hero called Starbright and defended his town and the greater area from all kinds of threats. As Starbright, Chet always chose to talk rather than to fight and tried to inspire hope rather than simply bash criminals.
