In the late 1950s, Canada’s best scientists set to work on a formula that would produce a crop of heroes who would be employed and dispatched by the gov’t itself, as opposed to the freelance heroes who, while patriotic were still free agents.  After several disastrous attempts, the gov’t finally succeeded in the 70s, and under the guise of BCG and Smallpox vaccinations, random children were chosen and injections administered.  These children were then monitored and recruited when they became of age.

  • Canadian Mettle - Real Name: Jude Richardson.
    • Chosen at a young age for the Canadian Government's Division P,  Jude's powers developed at puberty, where he noticed his strength, agility, stamina and reflexes surpassed that of any Olympian class athlete.  Jude began training in the combat arts in his teens, and is now a master of many forms including Kung Fu, Krav Maga and Wrestling. And, with military training, is skilled in all firearms.
