Jack Monroe is the third
Nomad. The first was Steve Rogers, better known as Captain America, during a period
when he forsook his star-spangled Avenger costume due to self-doubt. The second
Nomad was an agent of the Red Skull operating in California to lure Captain America into
a trap, and was slain by the Red Skull. Jack received the Nomad costume from
S.H.I.E.L.D. on a mission against the VIPER™, who had been defeated by the first
Nomad years before. Jack Munroe was Bucky to the fourth Captain
America. Quick recap: Cap I fought in World War II and was frozen in an iceberg.
Cap II was THE SPIRIT OF 76™, filling in following Cap I’s disappearance. Cap III was
the PATRIOT™, who took up the mantle following Cap II’s death.
The fourth Captain America hero worshipped the original Captain America,
and used the super-soldier serum with Jack during the 1950’s to fight Communism. The
super-soldier serum was unstable without vita-rays, and the pair quickly went from
being patriots of freedom to fascist vigilantes. The two were captured by the authorities and
placed in suspended animation. Once freed, they battled the real Cap and FALCON™, but
were then taken over by Doctor Faustus, a criminal mastermind who used the ersatz
Captain America as a tool for world domination. Jack was a pawn discarded in this play.
Following Faustus’ defeat, Jack was turned over to S.H.I.E.L.D., which cured his insanity.
Once cured, Jack sought out the original Captain America and, after fighting alongside
him as Bucky, took up the costume of Nomad to fight Viper. He has kept that identity
Nomad is a hero operating out of Ireland currently.
