History

1940s

Bill Waring was a meek and harmless law student who was a victim of bullies. He never did much about this, but when his father was killed for giving evidence to the D.A. about an alliance between the Mob and a prominent local politician, Bill swore vengeance. He traveled around the world, learning the proper skills to avenge his father and kill criminals. The Challenger learned jiu-jitsu in Japan. He learned chemistry in Tibet. He learned nerve control in India, so that he was immune to pain. He learned swordsmanship in Paris and marksmanship in Germany. He learned how to fly in England. He learned how to box. He learned every imaginable skill which might help him in the war against crime. Then he returned to America and avenged his father, after which time he took on various other criminals.

Modern Day

Through unexplained circumstances, the Challenger "bounced forward" forward in time to the present day, finding himself without assets, having been presumed dead, and inquiring of the law firm Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg & Holliway about reversing his will. The firm put him in contact with the superhero Captain America, who had found himself in a future era due to suspended animation for advice and assistance. He later became part of the federal government's 50-State Initiative of superhero teams, joining the Montana group, Freedom Force.

Notes
