Steven Levins was a mercenary who fought Captain America and Spider-Man as Jack O'Lantern. This incarnation of Jack O'Lantern was a member of the loosely-knit band of Red Skull minions called the Skeleton Crew. He was also a partner of Blackwing prior to joining the Skull's group. He also worked as an enforcer of the gangster The Golem and in this capacity, fought the villain The Hood when he interfered in Golem's machinations.

Civil War

Levins resurfaced just before the Stamford incident. He was hired by the terrorist organization R.A.I.D. and, along with Jackhammer and Shockwave, was ordered to flood the Thames Tunnel, but their plans were singlehandedly foiled by Union Jack's intervention.[1] All the villains were arrested and Jack O'Lantern was most likely deported back to U.S.A. and then recruited into the Thunderbolts hero-hunting squad.

While pursuing Spider-Man through the Manhattan sewers alongside the Jester[2], Jack O'Lantern was shot through the head and killed by the Punisher. However, he reappeared later possessed by a fragment of Lucifer's soul, and exhibited the ability to detach, levitate, and explode his head, among other powers. However, the Ghost Rider was able to exorcise him by ripping his heart from his chest, setting it aflame, and putting it back in his chest causing it to explode inside.
