Crossbones is one of the very few non-powered criminals capable of holding his own within the ranks of the world's Super Villains. He is a world-class hand-to-hand fighter, very nearly the equal of Captain America and Bullseye. He maintains his fighting edge with a clever use of poisons and dirty tricks, including throwing knives and a number of small firearms secreted on his person. He has pursued the criminal path his entire life, and loves nothing more than a good fight. He'll work for any master that can guarentee frequent, intense action.

Wearing a steel mesh battle suit of his own design, he took the codename Guardian, and Alpha Flight was born.

He's got the money, the ladies love him, and he can fly; what more could a guy need, honestly? Sure, he's saved the world a whole bunch of times, but who hasn't? Seriously? Life must be really tough when you're not as awesome as the Human Torch.
