When a child, Walker’s older brother was killed in duty as an American Viet Nam soldier. Wanting to emulate his brother, Walker entered the military as well but failed to become a “hero.” After leaving the military, Walker and a friend signed up with Power Broker, Inc. in order to recieve super strength, and planned later to make a career in pro-wrestling. A man named Ethan Thurm signed as his manager, but encouraged Walker to become a hero rather than a wrestler, and Walker adopted the Super-Patriot identity with a public relations team to back him up and became quite popular.
In one public relations stunt, the Super-Patriot called out to be allowed to become the next Captain America, even hiring “Buckies” (“Bold Urban Commandoes”) to portray Captain American supporters and loose a fight to him. Walker briefly came into conflict with the real Captain America at times.
Later, when Steve Rogers gave up his Captain America identity due to governmental pressure, the government, an agency known as the Commission, hired Walker to take his place, even training him (using the Taskmaster at one point.) At a press conference, two former Buckies, Left-Winger and Right-Winger publically exposed Walker after attacking him out of jealousy. A fanatical group called the Watchdogs took this opportunity to kill Walker’s parents. Walker, in rage, killed Left-Winger and Right-Winger as revenge. When the quitting and replacement of Captain America was revealed to be a plot by the Red Skull, Walker faught Captain America due to Red Skull’s trickery. Eventually the two defeated the Skull, and Steve Rogers was brought back as the real Captain America, and Walker was presumably killed by Scourge.
Walker was actually taken by the government through more rigorous training to become the USAgent, and served the Commission briefly before being ordered to join the Avengers’ West Coast branch. After several battles alongside the Avengers, USAgent left them due to personality conflicts and reckless behavior, only to prove himself to them later and was able to rejoin (completely divorcing himself from the Commission.) He served until the disbanding of the West Coast branch and was brought by Tony Stark into the team Force Works, serving until that team folded as well. He teamed up breifly with his former teammates as they reformed the Avengers after an hiatus.
US-Agent was later hired by Edwin Cord, owner of Cord Industries, who, for reasons of his own, wanted to fund a super hero team to take down the supposed still-criminal Thunderbolts. USAgent led the team, called The Jury, against the Thunderbolts and their new leader, Hawkeye, but were beaten back and the Thunderbolts escaped. On a second attempt to apprehend them, US-Agent and the Jury ended up joining their adversaries against Brute Force and the soldiers of the Secret Empire.
