While on duty at Roxxon Labs on Christmas Eve Day, Grasshopper foiled a robbery by Killer Shrike. Afterward, when he encountered Dr. Cindy Shelton, he thought (but didn't say) that he was her brother.[2]

Finally, he activated the maximum jump option of the suit, which sent him outside the atmosphere, where he died. His body then reentered the atmosphere, burning, believed by the GLXers to be the "Christmas Star".[2]



  • Grasshopper's Suit: Using the suit, Grasshopper could perform superhuman leaps and kicks. Other features included insectroid sensors and zoom lenses.
  • Neil Shelton is Jewish.[2][1]
