History

As the patriarch of an affluent black family in Philadelphia, Mr. Canfield had a strained and difficult relationship with his son, Maurice. Their relationship was further strained by Maurice's political activism, trial and forced enlistment into the United States Army.[1]

After losing the secrets of the Super Soldier Serum with the death of Dr. Erskine, the United States Army still wanted to produce more Super Soldiers like Steve Rogers.[2] Col. Walker Price and Dr. Wilfred Nagel forcibly recruited Maurice and 300 other African-American solders to serve as test subjects to recreate the Super Soldier Serum. To keep the operation secret, families were sent letters informing them of the soldiers deaths. Stricken with grief, Mr. Canfield murdered his wife before committing suicide.[3]
