Kevin was originally the Assistant of the Mayor in Dakota. He tried to have the order to use the experimental big bang gas denied but the mayor overruled him. In a last-ditch effort to warn the kids he went to Paris island and became a part of the “Big Bang event”. He witnessed the deaths of thousands but found himself changed by the event. When the mayor tried to sweep what had happened under the rug he took it upon himself to go to the mayor’s office and hold her hostage in hopes of having her make a public confession of her deed. Icon and Rocket defeated him and handed him over to the authorities. After his release he joined Shadow Cabinet.
