The Scourge Program was created by the World War II veteran, Thomas Halloway, who grew increasingly disgruntled by the prison system that allowed criminals to walk free. With funding from Red Skull, he trained numerous volunteers to go around the world and kill various criminals. However, his actions were discovered by U.S.Agent, who killed his most recent operatives and arrested him for assisting numerous murders. Following the organization's end, Henry Gyrich was manipulated into brainwashing two heroes, Demolition Man and Nomad into becoming the next Scourges, but this was also quickly shut down. Ironically, U.S.Agent eventually grew tired of the crime himself, and restarted the program after Wilson Fisk became mayor of New York.
