History: Kerry Latimer, a British crime reporter visiting Chicago one Christmas Eve, is visited by an old man who gives him "a seasonal present from the mist of time." It turns out to be a copy of A Christmas Carol, from which the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come emerges before Latimer and tells him that "On the dawn of Christmas Day you will become a crime-fighting force endowed with super human gifts! Fight evil and injustice! Use this strength and wisdom to bring about good in this upset world! Farewell!" Naturally, when he wakes up he's superpowered and has a new costume, and so he goes out and fights crime in America.
