HistoryEdit

Quote1 You think you're a patriot?! You think you can wrap yourself in the flag -- and justify your madness?! You're everything that's wrong! You're the American nightmare! Quote2
-- U.S. Agent src 

Early Life

John Walker grew up idolizing his older brother Michael, who had been killed during the Vietnam War. He went into military service but felt he wasn't a 'hero' like his brother was. Walker underwent the Power Broker process to compete in the Universal Class Wrestling Federation. However, his agent convinced him that he should become a hero.[1][2]

Super-Patriot

Super Patriot

Super Patriot

He became the Super-Patriot, arguing that he stood for America's 'true ideals' and began to publicly discredit Captain America.[3] Three 'Bold Urban Commandos', fellow recruits from the Federation, assisted him by staging attacks and intimidating others.[4]

Captain America

Captain America later abandoned his identity due to Red Skull's manipulation of the Commission on Superhuman Activities.[5] Walker took the role as Captain America, moderating his views. The man who would later become Battlestar served as his Bucky. The other two BUCs became Left-Winger and Right-Winger.[6][7]

Left-Winger and Right-Winger publicly revealed Walker's name leading up to the Watchdogs killing his parents. Walker retaliated by killing most of the Watchdogs. He captured Left-Winger and Right-Winger and used his old 'torchsword' to ignite explosives they were strapped to, leaving them horribly burnt and in comas. [8]

At this time he teamed up with Spider-Man to take down the Tarantula.[9][10]

Eventually there was a confrontation with Captain America who was then calling himself the Captain. Walker was stopped by Rogers.[11][12][13] The two confronted the Red Skull, who had been manipulating the Commission. In light of these events, Walker was deemed unworthy of the Captain America title due to his actions.[14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23]

US Agent

As a member of the Jury

Walker's death was soon faked by a member of the Commission and he re-emerged as US Agent. He wore a variation of the costume that Rogers had worn as the Captain and using his vibranium disc as a shield. Walker continued to work for the Commission. He was first seen as the U.S. Agent, battling an Iron Monger as a test for the Commission. [24]

He was placed as a watchdog of Avengers West Coast.and the Vision by the Commission, as a condition to possibly get their government clearance reinstated.[25][26]

He later rescued his former partner Battlestar from the Power Broker, and reconciled with him; John learned that his memories had been altered and that his parents were dead.[27] [28][29]

Force Works

When the West Coast Avengers dissolved, his costume and shield into the Hudson River. [30] Tony Stark formed a new team known as Force Works. Initially reluctant to join however Scarlet Witch later persuaded him to join, she believed John was the team's backbone. He intended to run the team on tight military lines and the values of strength and dedication. John ultimately joined the team, wearing a new costume and using an Energy shield.[31] John remained a member throughout the team's tenure, fighting threats such as the Kree, alien parasites the Scatter, [32] [33] The supernatural threat Ember, Slorenia's armored protectors Black Brigade,[34] [35] The Mandarin,[36][37] He fought alongside Australian super hero Dreamguard a against the dream-manipulating Orphan,[38][39][40] Slorenia's undead shock troops The Targoth and Volkhvy the Eternal One ,[41][42] They team up with the Avengers against the Kree commandos Excel,[43] [44].They later went up against intergalactic mercenary the Broker,[45] They even had to fight their security system V.I.R.G.I.L.,[46] and an alternate reality version of deceased former Force Works member Wonder Man.[47][48]

Working for his old Commission ties has led him into conflict with other heroes. Walker seems to have finally cut ties with them after one mission put him into conflict with War Machine and Hawkeye.[citation needed]

Jury

He was hired by Edwin Cord to lead the Jury against the Thunderbolts.[citation needed]

S.T.A.R.S.

While working for S.T.A.R.S., he stumbled upon the Ruul's plot to turn Earth into a galactic prison.[citation needed]

The Invaders

Walker joined the new Invaders squad acting as its Captain America; he in fact demanded to be called by that name.[49] Those Invaders who knew the real Captain America refused to do so. He claimed that today's world requires a tougher symbol of America to battle terrorism.[50] Alongside the Invaders he battled Axis Mundi. When the Human Torch (Jim Hammond) was killed, most of the team disbanded.[51][52][53][54][55][56][57]

Civil War

John favored the Superhuman Registration Act.[58][59][60][61]

Omega Flight

John was assigned to Canada as an official liaison - A number of powered villains, including the Purple Man, attempted to cross the border into Canada to escape the act.[62][63][64][65][66]

Mighty Avengers

He was recruited without warning by a seemingly recovered Scarlet Witch to a new team of Mighty Avengers. The Scarlet Witch was actually Loki in disguise.[67][68][69][70][71][72][73][74][75][76]

Retirement

retirement

Sent into battle against Norman Osborn's black-ops Thunderbolts team in Asgard, Walker's left arm and leg were severed by Thunderbolts leader Nuke/Scourge. Retired from active duty and fitted with a metal hook for a prosthetic hand (refusing better prostheses because he didn't want to become a cyborg like Nuke), Walker became the warden of the super-villain prison the Raft.[77]

Back in Action

Alternate Dimension

While transporting the Dark Avengers back to the prison, their transport went down and Walker and the team woke up in an alternate version of New York, divided in various territories controlled by heroes.[78][79][80][81][82] While knocked out, June Covington who had managed to gain control over Hank Pym and had free reign in a laboratory, bonded Walker with that world's Venom Symbiote which had its higher brain functions removed. Being bonded with the symbiote restored Walker's lost limbs. [83][84]

Leading the Dark Avengers, Walker attempted to find out what had happened to New York and reality. They found out from Reed Richards that A.I.M.

were behind the alteration of reality, creating a distorted reality pocket to test potential scenarios and salvage technology created by the denizens of the pocket.[85][86][87] The Dark Avengers managed to open a portal into the real world, where they crushed the A.I.M. agents. With the mission completed, and the Dark Avengers free, June used her powers to influence Walker into allowing them to remain free, and to lead them on further adventures.[88][89]

Doctor Doom's Avengers

Avengers (Doctor Doom's) (Earth-616) from Avengers World Vol 1 16 001

John joined Doctor Doom's Avengers, and battled the now-evil Scarlet Witch who arrived to Latveria to have revenge on Doctor Doom.[90]The Avengers fought the Scarlet Witch and saved villagers trapped in the crossfire. 3D Man managed to get hold of the Witch and take her to a machine Doctor Doom had created to specifically canalize her abilities. Soon after being put into the machine, the Scarlet Witch escaped and set out to find Doom, leaving the Avengers behind. After condensing a portion of Scarlet Witch's powers into the device, Valeria Richards informed the heroes their job was done.[91]
