History

Former Lieutenant Phoenix of the USD Military was catapulted into the past of 20th Century DC Earth A from Darkworld Z Y2402 (2400 A.D.). Amazed at the low-tech society and lack of the supernatural, Jake was found by the Tirok Order who were led to him by their Faith.

When he first began in the USD, Jake had the cold persona of an executioner. Evil was for killing, and he was good at it. Jake was a good guy, and they were the… dead guys. With his trusty weapons, he blasted his way through the ranks and sealed his place in history as one of the best arena executioners ever.

Throughout the following months, Jake started on the road to becoming more… well, mellow. His marriage to his teenage sweetheart, Carla, was an instrumental key in this. When the USD fell into chaos, Jake fell victim to certain death as the target of a miniature M-Head, but the temporal energy released saved him although sending him far from home.

He only hopes that others were as lucky in the blast and that he may someday find them on this Earth of DC Heroes.
