Jack Staff #1 NM
Image Comics Jack Staff #1. Jack Staff ("Britain's Greatest Hero") was created by Paul Grist, based on a story Paul wrote to make use of Marvel's Union Jack character, only to be rejected. Paul reworked the story, making it more of an original, and then continuing the character. Jack Staff, Britain's Greatest Hero, has been active since at least World War II. While he has revealed he has been around since the Victorian Age, its unknown if he was active as a superhero or similar adventurer. In his civilian identity, he works as a builder by the name of John Smith, but it is unknown if that is his real name. During World War II, he was active with the Freedom Fighters, a group of American and British superheroes: Sgt. States, Blazing Glory, and Tommy Tornado. During the war they defeated a vampire, Templar Richard, but not before Sgt. States also became a vampire (unknown to the rest of the team at the time). They also battled villains such as Kapitan Krieg and Brain Head.
