Powers/Abilities: Pureheart is a collection of negative emotions. It is immune to most forms of physical energy. It can fire blasts of "pure evil," which cause great pain in those they strike. IT is apparently weakened by pure or "good" energy.

(Darkhawk#30) - During the events of the Infinity War, the being known as the Goddess used her powers to eliminate the evil and darkness within everyone on Earth (for the most part..."evil in the name of good" was plenty prevalent). As a result these negative energies were cast into the atmosphere, and they accumulated in the Bermuda Triangle, where it focused into a humanoid form.

Sensing the presence of a large number of beings who were the antithesis of all it was, the entity traveled north to New York City. Darkhawk, who had left the meeting of super-heroes to take care of personal matters, saw the entity streaking through the air. Figuring it planned to attack the heroes, he intercepted it himself. Darkhawk found himself quickly on the defensive against the power of Pureheart. He fired his chest beam into the entity, which absorbed it. The entity then proceeded to continue to drain Darkhawk's energy through the chest beam, threatening to consume his entire life force, as well. In desperation, Darkhawk poured on the power, briefly overloading the entity, which fell into the water below and then fled southward again, saying..."I...will...be...back...and...you...will...perish..."

BTS - Presumably with the defeat of the Goddess and humanity's return to normal, Pureheart was dispersed back among the population.

Comments: Created by Danny Fingeroth and Anthony Williams.

Yep, Darkhawk's energies were more potent than the collective evil of every being on Earth. Who'd a thunk it?

Add this one to you list, Kyle, this is another of the characters who were named only on the cover or in narration.
