(Ultraverse trading card #53 (fb) - BTS) - Harry
Jannsen was trained extensively in combat techniques and made it to
rank of lieutenant in an unrevealed (presumably military) organization.
He was made liaison between the government and a covert group linked to
the CIA. Due to a lack of funding, his division was eliminated and his
secrets made him a marked man. Bitter and resentful, he vowed to use
his skills to stop the covert organization's double-dealing ways.
Comments: Created by uncredited writer & artist.
I'll slot this one in as another Ultraverse character that was intended to appear, but was never realized.
The same card series identifies Aladdin as a covert
organization linked to the CIA, so I'm guessing this was meant to be
Cutback vs. Aladdin.
The plot reminds me of an amped-up version of the 1975 movie Three Days of the Condor.
The art style and
initialed signature suggest the (co-)creator is Howard Chaykin.
