Powers/Abilities: The Jake Gallows of Earth-Traffic Wars 2099 possessed no superhuman powers, but was at peak physical condition for a man his age (and likely much younger.) He also had access to an army's worth of weapons, including a huge tank.
History: (Punisher 2099#24-fb) After defeating the Warlords of the Transatlantic Super-Bridge during the Traffic Wars, Jake Gallows became a hero to the people of Earth-Traffic Wars 2099. Afterwards, he created the Punishment Police and married the holo-actress, Kelly Dowenn.
(Punisher 2099#24) Due to a tear in reality, the Punisher of Earth-Traffic Wars 2099 came face to face with the Jake Gallows of the normal 2099 timeline. But as the mainstream 2099's Gallows began to question him, the tear closed up.
Comments: Created by Pat Mills, Tony Skinner and Simon Coleby
The divergence point between the 2099 and Traffic Wars 2099 timeline is not clear. It seems as though it goes back quite a way, as the Punisher's girlfriend, Kelly Dowenn, was an actress, not a psychiatrist in the Counter-2099 timeline, there's no Transatlantic bridge in the mainstream 2099 universe, and the TW-2099 Synchron didn't seem to be looney tunes, amongst other things. Because of the uncertain point of divergence, it doesn't seem likely that this Gallows' origin and history are much like the mainstream 2099's Gallows.
