CHARACTER BIOGRAPHY: Jared “Flint” Locke was born in Wheeling, West Virginia in October of 1921.  His family were poor coal miners and had to survive off the land and other “less reputable” means of making due such as bootlegging.  Jared learned how to use a gun from the time he could walk, and by the age of 6 he was a crack shot with a rifle and handgun.  When World War II broke out, Jared and his brother Carl enlisted in the Marines.  Both brothers proved themselves in battle, Jared himself earning the rank of Gunnery Sergeant in the Pacific in less than 4 years and Master Gunnery Sergeant by the time he retired from the Marines in 1954.  Carl used his GI Bill to get a business degree from the University of West Virginia, while Jared enlisted in the FBI, where he became a sharpshooting instructor at the academy.  In 1960 he was abducted along with 4 others from across the globe by an undisclosed alien race, and experimented upon.  When they were returned, their memory had been tampered with, to where all they could recall was from a fractal dream-like state.

Within 24 hours Jared began exhibiting the strange powers to manipulate his arms and hands into organic guns and hand cannons that shoot out living bullets that become active upon contact with air, and explode upon impact.  Jared also felt a psychic link that drew him to the other 4 abductees.  Through a series of adventures, the individuals found each other and formed a group a costumed adventurers known as THE PHANTOM FIVE.  Over the next decade and a half, the group became one of the foremost super hero teams along with The Alliance of Super Heroes, and The Division that brought the second era of the metas lasting from 1953 to the mid 70’s.  This era ended when a world conquering galactic despot known as Ghor the Annihilator, invaded Earth in 1975.  The combined heroes and villains of our world managed to turn him back, but at a huge price.  Many people and metas lost their lives in the battle, including all but one of the Phantom Five were killed.  Most bodies were recovered or accounted for.  Jared Locke’s was not among them….
