Powers/Abilities: Jackson was a specialist in unarmed combat and gymnastics. Jackson also wielded a variety of conventional police weapons, including handguns, grenades and rifles. He wore a SWAT uniform which provided body armor, and almost always had his helmet on. Jackson also wore a headset to communicate with the rest of the team.

History: (Thor I#426)- Jackson joined Code: Blue for their first mission, to rescue a hostage from the Wrecking Crew. He was able to distract the Wrecking Crew long enough for Fireworks Fielstein to get the hostage to safety.

(Thor I#427)- Jackson participated in a training session alongside Code: Blue. Later, they set out the site of a battle between Excalibur, Thor and the Wrecking Crew.

(Thor I#428)- Jackson aided Code: Blue against Excalibur, and found himself in battle with Shadowcat. Shadowcat attempted to drop him in the harbour by phasing him through the dock he was standing on, but Jackson easily recovered by grabbing onto a wooden pole.

(Deadly Foes of Spider-Man#2)- Jackson joined with Code: Blue in attempting to capture the Beetle and Leila Davis after they tried to break Boomerang out of the Tombs prison, but the two villains escaped.

(Thor I#432)- Jackson joined Code: Blue in raiding Loki's building and rescuing Kevin Masterson from him. Jackson personally brought Kevin to safety.

(Thor I#433)- Soon after, Jackson joined Code: Blue in battling Ulik, and nearly had him defeated when the new Thor, Eric Masterson, arrived. Thor ruined their efforts, and it became clear to them immediately that he was not the original Thor. Ultimately, Thor was able to help them defeat Ulik by fighting dirty.

(Cloak and Dagger III#19)- Jackson joined Code: Blue in attempting to bring down D'Spayre as he fought Cloak and Dagger, but D'Spayre cast them all aside with a wave of his hand. After Cloak and Dagger defeated D'Spayre, their friend Detective Rebecca Niles had Code: Blue assist Cloak and Dagger in bringing down a warehouse where the drug "D'Lite" was being shipped from.

(Thor I#448)- Jackson joined Code: Blue in battling the Absorbing Man and Titania at a construction site alongside Spider-Man and Thor. The battle finally ended when the Absorbing Man feigned defeat, wanting to spare Titania further carnage.

(Thor I#449)- Just as they were cleaning up after the Absorbing Man and Titania, Code: Blue learned that Uroc was breaking Ulik out of Ryker's Island. Jackson joined Code: Blue in battling them, but was outmatched. After gravely wounding Majowski, Ulik and Uroc fled with the arrival of Thor.

(Thor I#450)- Jackson joined Code: Blue in their mission to Asgard to apprehend Ulik, and fought with Thor and Fandral against Kai-Ra, Glump and the Rock Trolls attacking Asgard. Code: Blue followed Fandral to the Well of Eternal Tears, where they saved Hogun and Fandral from Ulik and Uroc. In battle with Uroc, Rassitano managed to destroy his left hand with one of Fielstein's weapons. Jackson joined Code: Blue afterwards as they were honored in Asgard.

(Thor I#451)- After the festivities ended, Jackson joined Code: Blue in returning to Earth with Thor's aid.

(Marvel Comics Presents#112/4)- Jackson joined Code: Blue in battling the Demogoblin in Riverside Park, and managed to apprehend him.

(Thor I#456)- Jackson joined Code: Blue and Earth Force in battling Bloodaxe, and brought Bloodaxe's hostage Susan Austin to safety.

(Fantastic Four I#372)- Jackson joined Code: Blue in their mission to arrest the Human Torch at Four Freedoms Plaza after he set fire to Empire State University. The Invisible Woman fought back against them, but the Torch surrendered himself into their custody. As they brought him the precinct, the Torch was attacked by his enemies Lyja and Paibok, disguised as people in the crowd, and he broke free from Code: Blue to avoid being killed.

(Darkhawk#23)- Jackson joined Code: Blue in battling St. Johnny as he fought Darkhawk. After Darkhawk seemingly killed St. Johnny, they tried to arrest him, but were prevented by the arrival of Evilhawk.

(Darkhawk#24)- Jackson assisted Code: Blue in firing upon Evilhawk as he prepared to make off with Darkhawk, but Evilhawk easily shrugged off their weapons and departed.

(Web of Spider-Man Annual#9)- Jackson joined Code: Blue in battling the Cadre when they went wild in New York. Jackson was affected by the powers of the Cadre member Dementia, causing him to run wild, even shooting at his fellow officers. The Cadre finally escaped with the Knight Templar Chloe, abetted by Spider-Man, who slowed Code: Blue down.

(Spider-Man Unlimited I#1/3)- Jackson joined Code: Blue against Cardiac, to prevent him killing white-collar criminal Steven Polk, and saved Polk when Cardiac knocked him from a construction site. They managed to save Polk's life, but Cardiac escaped.

(Thunderstrike#1)- Jackson joined Code: Blue in arresting Carjack and several of his men, and first encountered the new Thor in his identity as Thunderstrike.

(Thunderstrike#3)- Jackson assisted in the arrest of Armand Pelps, a member of a child pornography ring.

(Silver Sable#27)- Jackson joined Code: Blue at Central Park in an attempt to capture the Man-Eater after he ran amock. They found themselves at odds with the Man-Eater's employer, Silver Sable, and she sabotaged their efforts to capture him.

(Captain America I#426)- Jackson joined Code: Blue in arresting members of the Resistants after they had been defeated by the Super-Patriot (disguised as Captain America). Believing the Super-Patriot to be the real Captain America, they did not suspect that the Super-Patriot had attempted to rob an armored car.

(Thunderstrike#5)- Jackson joined Code: Blue in bringing Mary Jane Watson-Parker to the precinct so that they could take her statement on her encounter with Pandara. While Jackson stepped out to get the others some food, S.H.I.E.L.D. raided the precinct and took Code: Blue and Mary Jane captive for accessing files on Tantalus in their investigation. Jackson had himself placed on leave so that he could join Thunderstrike and Spider-Man in launching a rescue mission at the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.

(Thunderstrike#6)- Although they had intended to use diplomacy, Thunderstrike, Spider-Man and Jackson found themselves facing an army of S.H.I.E.L.D. Mandroids they had to fight their way through. Finally, Nick Fury brought the battle to an end, and released Code: Blue from their custody. Jackson then joined Code: Blue, Thunderstrike and Stellaris in tracking down Pandara in New York's sewers. The Peacekeepers battled Code: Blue to prevent Pandara's capture, but they fled when the hero Blackwulf arrived. Thanks to Blackwulf, Pandara was taken into custody.

(Thunderstrike#7)- When the rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Simon released Pandara from prison, she assaulted the precinct with her monsters. Jackson joined Thunderstrike and Alex DePaul in battling Pandara herself, and to save Thunderstrike from a blast of energy she cast at him, he flung himself in its path, and was killed instantly.

Thanks to Jackson's sacrifice and a tape recorded confession, Code: Blue was able to put Pandara away for good.
