Omar Pairut, also known as Sunburst, is a powerful villain in the DC comics.
Omar Pairut was a young manager of a petroleum company. He inherited his father's fortune which included a mystical stone known as the Sun Stone. It had been in the possession of his family since 334 BC, when his ancestor, a slave, was given it to guard against the attack of Alexander the Great.
Pairut studied the stone for years to uncover its secret, a secret which gave him great powers, powers which he would use to rebuild the Persian Empire as Sunburst. But something was still missing, a symbol to show his power, so he went to meet Aquaman to start a fight. Sunburst gains an advantage over Aquaman and leaves him in the desert region of Iran to die. Aquaman realizes that he is not physically prepared to fight Pairut, so he devises a plan to use a mirror to reflect Sunburst's power to destroy the stone. Omar is once defeated and now arrested and has not been seen since.
