When the crew of the Icarus One brought an extraterrestrial object to Earth, something began emanating from the object. This something made its way from person to person until it reached the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Washington DC. Somehow, the emanation interacted with the tomb, its cultural significance, and the three bodies within the tomb, and produced a peak human vigilante dedicated to the ideals of the American Republic.

The Old Soldier made his way to the Pentagon, but was palmed off onto Nick Fury's SHIELD organization, where he felt right at home.

Powers

  • Superhuman Strength: Old Soldier is strong enough to easily rip off a car door.[1]



Equipment

  • The Old Soldier has a gun which he presumably knows how to use. However, in combat he relies on his fists and a WW1-era helmet, which he throws as a weapon.
  • Despite the fact that the Tomb of the Unknowns only contains soldiers from WW2 and the Korean and Vietnamese Wars, the Old Soldier possesses memories stretching from 1776 to 1991.
  • The Old Soldier is his universe's version of Captain America.
