With this in mind he named the the city after the little gem stone that had brought him such prosperity. By 1882 at least three streets of Opal City had become a bustling built up area that some at the time compared to the streets of Paris. This was in part due to a French family, the Benoits, who had also made it rich in mining and had been invited by Burnley Elliworth himself. In the modern era, Opal City became best known as the base of operations for the costumed hero known as Starman. Ted Knight was the original Starman back in the 1940s. His son, David Knight, inherited the mantle, but was killed on his first night on patrol. The role then went to David's younger brother, Jack Knight, who became Opal's guardian for several years. When Jack Knight retired from adventuring, he entrusted Opal City's guardianship to the former criminal known as The Shade.
