Adams was a warrant officer in the Heartlands Air Force until he was maimed and crippled by an explosion while serving as a military adviser overseas. In the attempt to save his life, surgeons had to amputate his right leg. Unwilling to accept the thought of living his life bound to a wheel chair, he sought experimental limb regrowth treatments, but didn't have the money. He was approached by a front group for PATH (AKA: the Project for the Attainment of Technocratic Harmony), a notorious group of radical transhumanist terrorists, and offered a spot in an experimental program that could restore his leg. Adams jumped at the chance. When his extensive surgical treatments were complete, however, he came out with more than just a bionic leg: many of his organs were replaced with biologically modified implants, hardpoints for weapon attachments had been installed on his skeleton, and a nuclear isomer battery had been installed in his abdomen. Unfortunately, the experiment was a failure, and radiation from the nuclear battery was poisoning him. Very quickly Adams discovered that he was but one in a long line of similar experiments, and that PATH intended to kill him and recollect the parts. He surprised his captors and made a daring escape, making his way to the only man whom he believed could help him: the Promethean.

His faith in the Promethean was not misplaced, and eventually the techno-wizard contrived the 'Life Preserver', a specialized harness that helped absorb and regulate the output of his internal power source. The grateful Adams then accepted the Promethean's offer to join the Challenger Foundation, "the World's Greatest Adventurers", as the Atomic Ranger.
