Sunspot (Roberto DaCosta) is a mutant with the ability to absorb and channel solar power.


X2: X-Men United

His name was seen on Stryker's Computer.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

As the Sentinels are dispatched to find and kill mutants living underground, Iceman, Colossus, Sunspot, Blink and Warpath hold them off while Shadowcat and Bishop attempt to travel back a few days before the attack. Before the time-travel occurs, Sunspot is killed by a Sentinel who had acquired Iceman's freezing abilities.

With the timeline altered, Sunspot retreats with the group to a monastery in China where they meet with the X-Men and send Wolverine's consciousness back in time to 1973 and alter the timeline to prevent the current war against Mutants. While Shadowcat performs the process, Sunspot and the group guard the monastery from Sentinels to give Wolverine enough time in the past to complete his mission. Sunspot is later impaled and killed by a Sentinel using the powers of Lady Deathstrike. As the Sentinels entered the monastery and prepared to kill the remaining Mutants present, the time travel process was completed and the timeline was altered, erasing the future war.

Powers and Abilities


  • Solar Radiation Absorption - Sunspot absorbs solar energy and can utilize it for physical strength. The cells of a normal human body convert energy from foodstuffs into a form of energy usable by the body. Apparently, Sunspot can store solar-derived energy in his cells through the same or a similar method, and release it whenever necessary.
    • Solar Form - When Sunspot absorbs enough solar energy, he can be transformed into a humanoid sun, giving him great power.
      • Solar Beam Emission - Sunspot is able to generate bursts of solar energy from his arms and chest.
      • Superhuman Durability - Sunspot's transformation increases his physical durability.
      • Flight - Sunspot is able to fly in his Solar Form.
      • Superhuman Strength - When Sunspots cells are powered by solar energy, he has the superhuman ability to augment his physical strength.


  • Unarmed/Armed Combat
