A.G. Bell was a telephone repairman who was sent to fix a phone that, unknown to anyone, was actually acting as a prison for a small race of aliens known as the Seltas. The Seltas had left the day before, accidentally freed when the phone was broken, but Bell found the Selta's technology in the device. Replicating it in his home, Bell found it could be used to tap into any communications technology. He decided to use it to fight crime as a super hero: Phone Ranger.[1] However, in one of his first adventures, he was a victim of the Scourge of the Underworld.[3] Miraculously, that headgear deflected the bullet and saved his life.[1]

Following the enactment of the Superhuman Registration Act, and during the subsequent superhuman civil war, Phone Ranger was arrested by Iron Man, Spider-Man, and the NYPD, alongside Lectronn, Lightbright, and Wildstreak.[4] After Captain America surrendered, Bell accepted the offered super hero amnesty for former members of the rebellion.[1]

His costume's plastic cable insulation provides him with enhanced durability.
