The alien criminal Dargin Bokk gathered together a group of 5 inventors to help him create an army of expendable but repairable robots. Mondu was an alien who discovered a way to move a mind into storage. Manjeda was an alien who developed a teleportation system that could replace one person with another. Graczia was an alien who studied telepathy. Ocsh discovered a dimension known as null space. Byron was from Earth and was an expert in robotics. Together being supervised by Bokk's scientist brother Dargin Ryne they created 5 Darkhawk bodies. Mondu, Manjeda, Graczia, Ocsh and Byron stole the 5 Darkhawk bodies to keep them from falling into Bokk's hands. During the mutiny Bokk killed Manjeda and stole her Darkhawk amulet and became Evilhawk. Ocsh was damaged by an explosion when he tried to change back to human form and his mind merged with the space ship they were in. Byron and Mondu used the mental projection aspect of their amulets to beam their consciousnesses to earth where they merged with two participants in the USA who were part of an experiment in testing ESP. Byron's mind merged Ned Dobbs while Mondu's mind merged with John Trevane aka St. Johnny. Together they tried to recreate a sixth Darkhawk amulet to protect them from Evilhawk never suspecting that they were in fact being manipulated by Evilhawk who had been aware of all of this and waiting for someone to unlock the power of the amulet. Using Kig's techno-virus he was able to manipulate Dobbs and St. Johnny into being Darkhawk's protectors while also spying on him.

As one of the two inventors of the Darkhawk amulet Ned frequently became involved in Darkhawk's affairs and became an ally even helping him defeat foes such as the Mahari brothers and Overhawk.

Ned and Johnny's origin were presumably rendered apocryphal after the revelation that much of Darkhawk's origin was a hallucination due to a sensory overload from his amulet's datasong. Other characters whose fates were also affected by this revelation include Evilhawk, Ocsh, Portal and Overhawk. Chris Powell's amulet was retconned to being eons old and was revealed to be a creation of the Shi'ar and that other wielders of the amulets were members of an ancient order called the Fraternity of Raptors.
