Jack was a member of an Australian extremist group of human zealots. When Jack became an Inhuman, he became appalled in what he was turned into. He attacked the Royal Inhuman ambassador Crystal out of hatred, along with the help of his group. During the chaos, Jack's comrades noticed Jack's true nature and turned against him. Despite Jack's pleas explaining that he was still one of them, the group offered Jack a quick death. Jack and his former companions were defeated by Crystal and the rest of the Royal Inhuman Diplomatic Mission after which an Inhuman by the name of Ash Minnick, who was captured earlier by Jack and his group, was freed. Jack was imprisoned until later when Gorgon offered to train him to use his powers.
During his training, Jack took the opportunity he had to escape. He jumped into a portal that was used to produce training equipment from a place inside the Moon called the Storage. The Storage is an armory and the last visage of old Attilan, used by the Inhumans in case a situation gets dire and they need weaponry fast. Gorgon, Ash, and Naja used Lockjaw to follow and recapture Jack, however after a short confrontation Jack shot a hole into a glass window and escaped into the Blue Area of the Moon. He was eventually picked up by someone he had contacted previously while he was in the Storage having used a stolen communicator.
