History: (Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty#8) - Ajanii Jackson was sent by the Sons of the Shield to plant an explosive device in the First Baptist Church in Harlem as part of the Sons' complicated plan to stir up support for their pro-white campaign. Ajanii riled up a mob against the Sons of the Shield, supplying them with the Sons' own weapons in order to make the Sons look like the victims on the news. He led them in an assault upon the Sons' campaign headquarters, skirmishing with Captain America and the Falcon. John Mason, head of the Sons, saw to it that one of Ajanii's followers seemed to murder Captain America so that they could claim him as a martyr to their cause.

(Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty#9) - The Falcon realized that Ajanii was involved with the Sons, and, dressed as Captain America, set after him. The Sons of the Shield attempted to protect him, but the Falcon used the support of people in Harlem to drive them off. Ajanii fled from the Falcon to Mason's bunker, and Mason was infuriated that Ajanii had led the Falcon to him. He placed Ajanii into a chamber and released his bioethnic virus, killing him as he planned to kill the entire black population of Harlem.

Comments: Created by Mark Waid, Cully Hamner, Pondscum, and Nathan Massengill.

Ajanii was missing his mustache in Sentinel of Liberty#9. Maybe he shaved it to change his appearance (sure didn't work). Or maybe someone should have shown the art from #8 to the artist of #9?
