On November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas, the President of the United States of America John F. Kennedy was riding with his wife Jacqueline, Texas Governor John Connally and his wife. He was fatally shot by Lee Harvey Oswald firing from the Texas School Book Depository into Dealey Plaza from a nearby building. The motorcade rushed to the hospital where he was announced dead.
Nightingale from First Line had a vision of the president being killed by an unknown assailant. The team travelled to Dallas to stop the attack but mistaken Chimera and Howler as the attackers not aware of Oswald's plans.
In an experiment the time traveler Immortas travelled back to 1963. Doing so he created Earth-9007 a timeline Oswald was killed by an Agent Corrigan. He arrived at the depository after getting a tip off phone call from Immortus. He created the alteration so that the single assassin theory would be ignored and the true killer of JFK from the grassy knoll would be investigated. Immortus erased the timeline rather then seeing how it would play out.
Alternate Theories and Claims
A number of alternative theories exist surrounding that event.
Second Shooter Theories
It was speculated that there was a second shooter on a nearby grassy knoll. Over the years it was speculated that the famed soviet assassin the Winter Soldier was involved in many assassinations since the 1950's. It was also believed that he was the second gunman who shot JFK.
Various claims or statements have implicated some parties into the assassination:
- Senso, a member of the Hidden Ones, claimed to have been involved in the assassination.
- Nick Fury also stated that General John Ryker was involved in the assassination.
Lee Oswald Taking the Fall
Captain America stated that JFK was murdered by three Corsican mercenaries paid by Fidel Castro. The information was known within three days after the assassination, including by Nick Fury, who was under orders to lie. To prevent a World War, the information was suppressed and Lee Oswald took the fall for people to have a face and a name to blame. Sabretooth also mentioned that Oswald was a red herring taking the fall.
