History: Jack's mother, Stacy, had a short passionate affair with the god Balder. Balder left before he even knew his lover was pregnant and so she had to raise the boy on her own. As he grew he was stronger and smarter then all of his peers and always felt a sense of isolation. On his 17th birthday his mother died in a car accident and searching through her effects he found her diary, which included an explanation for why he was different. With this realization his powers began to manifest themselves in ernest and after a short period of soul searching he decided to go looking for his father. After an epic quest that led him across the galaxy and through many adventures he found the Norse gods. Spending time with them he came to the conclusion that gods are jerks. No longer wanting to associate with them he headed home where he became a major player in super hero society. He remains one of the greatest of Earth's champions to this day
