History: (Avengers VI#675) - After the superhero Lightning went undercover to bust a group of car thieves, Det. Dan arrived and asked Lightning if perhaps one of the thieves had angered Lightning by calling him a c-list hero. Det. Dan then told Lightning not to let the remarks get to him, as Lightning had helped apprehend the car thieves and that was something. Lightning then asked Dan if he would like to get some dinner after they finished arresting all of the thieves and Dan replied by asking if it was just going to be dinner. Smiling, Lightning asked if his poker face was that bad, to which Dan replied it was the worst before they both stopped in their tracks upon seeing disaster affect the world.

(Avengers VI#690 (fb) - BTS) - Lightning and Detective Dan attacked a group of A.I.M. agents in Texas but A.I.M. was ready for the duo.

(Avengers VI#690) - Having returned to Texas alongside Lightning, Red Wolf helped defeat A.I.M. and Lightning had Detective Dan arrest the agents. As he led the two A.I.M. agents outside, one of them yelled "We are furious (yellow)!," prompting Dan to ask them to stop saying that.
