David Cambridge, also known as Lux, is a character from the 2000 AD strip Zenith. He was one of the superhuman infants bred by Dr Michael Peyne who became the superhero team Cloud 9 in the 1960s. As Lux, young David protected Britain for years but eventually came to the conclusion that he and his peers were the next step in human evolution, destined to supplant humanity and become gods. His comrades Mandala and Red Dragon strongly opposed this idea, while Spook supported him and the remaining three, Voltage, White Heat and Doctor Beat were undecided.
After the CIA murdered White Heat and Dr. Beat, Lux and Spook faked their own deaths (Lux seeming to disintegrate and Spook falling into a mirror) and fled into the multiverse, eventually returning twenty years later as part of the alliance of superheroes who opposed the demonic Lloigor.
Ultimately, however, Lux realised that they were actually destined to evolve into Lloigor, and he, Spook and Voltage, among others (including the woman Blaze, a clone of White Heat) did so. They almost conquered the universe before being trapped forever within a pocket universe formed from the body of their lost surrogate sibling Chimera by Mandala and the third generation superhuman Zenith (the son of White Heat and Doctor Beat).
