Canada Jack was an athlete and adventurer who decided to use his prowess to combat crime and fifth comlumnists during the Second World War, to act as a symbol for his nation against the ruthless cruelty of the Axis powers. He set up his own club, the Canada Jack Club, to encourage the youth of his nation to engage in useful and patriotic activities, and often used this network as a source of information, alerting him to enemy activity. During his career, he combatted Nazi arsonists, black marketeers, shipyard saboteurs, and escaped P.O.W.'s. After a while, the enemy began to specifically target him for disrupting their acitivities. Jack ventured out of Canada only once, when he used an experimental plane to fly to South America and tackle Nazis there!
