A member of the Legion of Substitute Heroes.

Staq Mavlen is the real name of Fire Lad. After inhaling strange vapors given off by a fiery meteorite, Staq gained the ability to breathe fire. Calling himself Fire Lad, Staq traveled from Earth from his native planet Shwar to try out for the Legion of Super-Heroes. Fire Lad was rejected, because his power was deemed too dangerous.

Fire Lad and the other candidates rejected for membership that day created their own group called the Legion of Substitute Heroes. The Subs as they were called aided the Legion on a number of occasions.
