James Newman is a late-20's/early-30's American citizen, possibly from San Francisco. He is currently a corporal with the United States Marine Corps and is stationed in Afghanistan. He is in the Corps because of "zealots crazy enough to believe that hate is the same thing as believing in God." He hopes that by making Afghanistan safe, he can "make America safe".

During a recent skirmish in an Afghan village, he believes that Captain America showed up to assist him at a time when he will was at a breaking point. After saving two troops and surviving the attack, his fellow Marines tell him they only saw Newman performing the heroic deeds, leading Newman to question his sanity.

He is married to Lori Newman and has one son, Brad, who is five months old.


None, human.
