Fictional character biography
Sparkler appears in the 1987 Outsiders special. A combined team of Infinity Inc. and Outsiders heroes breach the Force of July's compound, an estate owned by their leader Abraham Lincoln Carlyle. In battle, Sparkler defeats the young Windfall by burning up the air around her. 
Sparkler dies in the Force of July's confrontation against the Suicide Squad during the "Janus Directive" storyline, as seen in Suicide Squad #27 (May 1989). This attack is brought on by Amanda Waller's need to prove that she has been replaced by a duplicate. While pursuing Dr. Light, Sparkler's young age and childish appearance triggers memories of Dr. Light's past traumatic experiences with the Teen Titans, causing him to unleash a devastating attack on Sparkler, killing him instantly. Also, Carlyle and Mayflower die in the Squad's attack. 
Sparkler has been identified as one of the deceased entombed below the Hall of Justice.
Powers and abilities
Sparkler's powers consist of flight and the ability to project light as beams or fireworks. Sparkler emits a trail of pyrotechnic light in his wake while in the air.
