James Taylor James better known as J.T. James was the descendant of famed western hero Carter Slade better known as the Phantom Rider. He inherited the Hellfire Chain, which imbued him with power to manipulate Hellfire. Before the Skrulls' Secret Invasion started, Nick Fury tasked Daisy Johnson with recruiting select individuals that he had files on for what would become his secret strike force team. She found J.T. working in a convenience store and watched as he took out two thugs with a flaming chain. When she first approached he asked her "Who the @#$% are you?".
