History

The mutant Super Sabre, along with Stonewall and Crimson Commando, fought together against the Nazis in World War II. Afterward, they returned to fight crime in the United States. When the Communists began to exert global influence, the team was asked by the government to not interfere, and as a result they went into retirement.

In recent years the group saw a rise in prostitution and drugs. The three men took it upon themselves to form a vigilante committee. They sought out criminals, particularly drug dealers, brought them to a cabin in an otherwise deserted area of upstate New York, and hunted them down for sport. They inadvertently captured the mutant known as Storm during a period when she had lost her powers, mistaking her for a criminal when they discovered her at the burned out ruins a home belonging to the parents of Jean Grey, Storm’s teammate. Storm managed to avoid capture and forced the men to face their consciences by turning themselves over to the authorities.

When they did so, the government decided it would be bad publicity to bring them to trial. Instead it offered them pardons in return for their serving as members of Freedom Force, the U.S. government-sponsored superhero task force. Super Sabre served with Freedom Force on several missions.

Later, when attempting to liberate a Kuwaiti scientist during the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait in the Gulf War, Super Sabre was killed by members of the Iraqi team, Desert Sword.
