(Alpha Flight I#23) - Using his new suit, Caliber assaulted the city of Vancouver, attempting to hold it hostage until his (unspecified) demands were met. He was in the midst of destroying the local police units when Alpha Flight arrived on the scene. Caliber’s firepower succeeded in seriously hurting Sasquatch, but he wasn’t prepared for Aurora’s newly-developed powers, as she blinded him with a massive flash of light. This gave Sasquatch the chance to take out Caliber with one well-placed strike.

(Alpha Flight I#25 - BTS) - An unrevealed accomplice(s) broke Caliber out of prison and returned his suit to him.

(Alpha Flight I#25) - Caliber again attempted to assault Vancouver, but this time was confronted by what appeared to be Guardian (later revealed to be Delphine Courtney). Arriving on the scene, Talisman watched the battle for a short period before getting involved, at which time she used her mystical powers to create a glob of energy that encased Caliber and made his armored suit disappear, leaving him in his underwear. He was most likely arrested again soon thereafter.

(Alpha Flight I#121 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Caliber somehow retrieved his armored suit (or replaced it with another one).

(Alpha Flight I#121) - Caliber was among other super-villains in attendance when the Brass Bishop attempted to sell the bodies of the deceased Silver and Auric; he angrily protested when he learned they would be bidding on corpses, but quieted when the Bishop informed him that the bodies had absorbed the energies of the Sphinx (Anath-Na Mut).

   When Alpha Flight and Spider-Man arrived on the scene, they engaged the villains in battle. Caliber opened fire, but he was struck from behind by Puck -- his whereabouts afterward are unrevealed, but he most likely escaped with the rest of the bidders.

Comments: Created by John Byrne, Bob Wiacek, and Keith Williams.

 He received a real name in Talisman's entry in OHOTMU A-Z HC#11.

It's difficult to estimate Caliber's height because he was only depicted without his armor once, and he's sitting on the ground -- the suit probably adds to his size.. -- Ron Fredricks
