|Martin Li (Left) and Mister Negative (Right) - By: David Paget|
Though initially Martin Li did not display powers, the Lightforce altered Martin Li's personality and made him into a benevolent individual. He severed ties with his past and built a new life for himself, earning a fortune in the shipping industry, becoming a philanthropist, and founded the F.E.A.S.T. organization to help the homeless. However, at the time when Cloak and Dagger's powers began to manifest, Martin's did as well, and along with his newfound abilities the Darkforce started to corrupt Martin's personality and slowly overpowered his good nature. In public Martin would resume his efforts to help the poor, but in secret, Li returned to his criminal lifestyle and started making his own criminal faction by recruiting Chinese immigrants, the Demons.
