Closer 67 died on his very first mission as a “closer” – an agent who ties up loose ends covertly, often involving espionage and assassinations for a secret United States Intelligence agency run by Frank Decker. Lucky for him he was restored to life after being injected with Bio-Organic implants which also made the very peak of human physical conditioning.

In his public identity of Coltrane “Trane” Walker, an African-American professional basketball player he gained great fame and wealth. Meanwhile he rose through the ranks of his organization and became Xero, a fourth level closer. Xero was his secret identity a blonde white man with blue eyes.

He was revived once more but was useless to the agency because of brain damage.
