Equipment: He has access to an energy shield which can block gun fire.
He first appears as the golden age Die Hard fighting alongside Glory, Superpatriot and Supreme. He fought during WWII and never removed his mask due to the tense racially charged climate of the time. Alongside Glory and Superpatriot they comprised “The Allies”. The tale of how he battled Nazis was told to the modern-day Die Hard [Youngblood Strikefile #1].
After serving his time he retired when a replacement Die hard was made.
Years later Calvin Raines is re-activated this time as the Free Agent by president Barack Obama. Calvin is dispatched into Afghanistan to battle a deadly terror cell who turned out to be superhuman Muslim Demon ninjas. Raines has not been seen since [Youngblood v4.#9, 2004].
