History:

(New Excalibur#15 (fb) – BTS) – Jin Taiko became the Juggernaut when he was chosen by Cyttorak to become Cyttorak’s avatar. As the Juggernaut, Jin served Cyttorak for decades until the day came when Cyttorak ordered Juggernaut to raze his own village to punish the village for worshiping others over Cyttorak. Jin refused.

(New Excalibur#15 (fb)) – Confronted by a disloyal avatar, Cyttorak led Cain Marko into the Temple of Cyttorak in Korea and when Cain touched the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak, he earned the right to challenge Jin Taiko for the Juggernaut mantle. Jin and Cain furiously battled until Cain broke Jin’s neck, killing him and assuming the mantle of the Juggernaut. As Cyttorak’s new avatar, Cain Marko razed Jin Taiko’s village.
