    Early Life

    The High was an extra dimenstional hero who many people thought didn't even exist. He came to Earth via a shiftship in 1910 and then raised by a Mr. and Mrs. Cumbleland. He was mostly active during the 1930's. He was an ally and friend to Jenny Sparks and a member of the Big Three along with Mr. Majestic and Maximum Man. However three years after the start of his super hero career he would become frustrated and left super heroics for self exile. He spent decades devising a plan while sitting on a stone throne on top of the Rocky’s. After many years he returned having formed a group of heroes called the Changers whom he trusted and relied on more than anyone else.

    Change Or Die


    They planned to use their powers to create a world with out any wants and needs and only self government. However he was opposed by the insane Henry Bendix and his Stormwatch teams along with his friend Jenny Sparks. He even attacked the U.N., destroying their flags as a symbol of the desolving of different governments and borders and defeating Stormwatch. Sparks tried to convince him people would only change in the ways they wanted to. However Bendix ordered a Hammerstrike Deep Sanction Missle full of acidic bombs aimed at the Changers base. Each member was killed save for High. In a rage he headed towards the Skywtach base, but a saddened Jenny activated the base force shield Storm Door seemingly killing him.
