History

Thomas Bannion was formerly a member of A.I.M. but decided to go freelance and designed a battle armor to help on his missions. As Chain, he joined his brothers as a member of the armored group of mercenaries called the Seekers. He fought against Iron Man and Spider-Woman.[2]

After his nephew committed suicide while emulating the Human Torch, Chain joined his brothers in attacking the hero.[3] Chain, Grasp, and Sonic also worked for the Secret Empire against several heroes.[4]

When the Seekers increased their membership and upgraded their armor, Thomas was presumably the member named Chain Lightning.[5]
