With the disappearance of Captain America and Bucky in World War Two the government felt it was necessary to find replacements. The government thought it was wise to choose one of the original Bucky's friends so Fred Davis was chosen and given training. He and the second Captain America continued to fight throughout the war. Not long after the Captain America had died, Fred was seriously injured and never recovered from his injuries. He was given a place in the V-Battalion and earned his place on the Penance Council. He looked up to Roger Aubrey who he thought might be turning into a villain before Aubrey retired. In his old age, he was eventually killed by Leo Novokov. a former sleeper agent, in an attempt to flush the real Bucky Barnes out who as stated to be dead.
