Jeramey was once an arrogant con man of a university student that is, until the Amazons attacked. With the campus being invaded, Jeramey sought refuge in Canterbury Cathedral. Tracked by an Amazon, Jeramey pleaded for his life to the Amazon and to God. In a flash the cathedral was bombed by overhead invisible jets, with Jeramey being the sole survivor. In silence, all that he heard was a chirp. Whether by way of a miracle or a curse, Jeramey had been changed, and out from the rubble rose the Canterbury Cricket. Jeramey is now one of the most loyal of people to England and will fight to protect it until his very last breath.
Little else is known about the origin and transformation of the Canterbury Cricket, only that he appears sometime in the altered world of Flashpoint.
Canterbury Cricket first appeared in the Flashpoint: The Canterbury Cricket one-shot, which was written by Mike Carlin and drawn by Rags Morales. He was created by Geoff Johns and designed by Andy Kubert. There actually are no crickets in England. They have grasshoppers, but Flashpoint creator Geoff Johns thought the alliteration sounded better.
Canterbury Crick appears in Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox as part of the resistance in London.
