Damage: Born in Atlanta, Ethan Avery joined the United States army after high school, hoping to do something good for the world. Ethan served one tour in Afghanistan, where he gained a reputation for excellence. After his tour had finished Ethan volunteered for the Damage program, an experimental procedure which would give Ethan superpowers. Colonel Marie Jonas interviewed Ethan and accepted him into the program due to his beliefs about heroism. After several trials and tests in a secret facility known as the Burrow, Ethan was given the Damage serum, a drug designed by Doctor Vess which was based off of the Miraclo drug. This serum would allow Ethan to transform into a hulking behemoth known as Damage for one hour a day, although he would have no control over his actions. Ethan would go on several missions as Damage where he would completely obliterate the hostile force. His first mission comprised of eliminating a Vlatvian fascist military group, which he was able to accomplish in eight minutes and thirteen seconds. Another one of his missions was to massacre a militant group in the African nation of Bialya, which he also succeeded in doing. Ethan began to doubt his role because he could never remember what he did as Damage, each time however Colonel Jonas would tell him that every bullet he took as Damage would save a soldier who would've been killed in his place. Eventually, however, Ethan began to gain recollection of his time as Damage, recognizing the horror he transformed into as himself after catching a glimpse of his reflection in a window. Realizing he was being treated like a BOMB instead of a hero, Ethan fled the military, seeking the help of Mr. Terrific to restore his full mind in his Damage form.
