Don’t worry, Frank Simpson will protect America. He was made to destroy the enemy with secret and manipulative organizations. Give him a red. He remembers the war. He won’t let God’s Country down. Give him a white. He’ll fight to the end, massacring every last foe. Give him a blue.
A Highly Trained and Merciless Killer <?h4>
Frank Charles Simpson is a savage fighter from Dayton, Ohio. He is the child of an abusive, alcoholic mother who came from a wealthy family, and a father, Charles Simpson, who was a decent man, but broken by his hateful wife.
Frank’s problematic behavior in school caught the interest of a secret organization led by the ancient and manipulative Romulus. Sending an agent named Betsy to work for the Simpsons as Frank’s babysitter, the organization hoped to mold him in their image. Through Betsy’s kindness, she became a mother figure for Frank. Gaining his trust and love, she suggested to him that everyone would be better off without his mother.
One night in 1953, Frank’s mother came home drunk again, and while Charles drove Betsy home, Frank killed his mother, unaware that at roughly the same moment, another of Romulus’ agents, Logan (James Howlett, later Wolverine) murdered Betsy and convinced Charles to commit suicide. Shortly thereafter, Logan delivered the unresisting Frank to his employers.
As an adult, Simpson joined the U.S. Marines, rising to the rank of Major while fighting in the Vietnam War. In 1968, the Viet Cong captured him in South Vietnam’s Quang Ngai Province. Among his captors was Logan, sent in by Romulus supporters in the U.S. government to pose as a Russian advisor to the Viet Cong. Logan’s true mission, however, was to push Simpson a step further towards becoming a merciless killing machine. He succeeded through electroshock torture and brainwashing techniques, triggering him with a phrase that causes him to commit violent acts and war crimes.
