History: (New Warriors V#7 (fb) ) - Jack Chain was a human with Inhuman heritage who was transformed into a NuHuman when Black Bolt detonated a Terrigen bomb. He became affiliated with a small group of Inhumans, composed of himself, Hollow, Fume, Spark, and Nightfall. They intended to curry favor with the renegade Inhumans of Orollan and their brutal leader Lash by delivering another Inhuman to them.

(New Warriors V#7) - Hollow, Fume, and Spark abducted Inhuman hero Haechi and his teammate Sun Girl, then had Nightfall teleport them to an apartment building in Jakarta, where Jack chained up Haechi. Jack and Nightfall worried that Lash wouldn't like their impulsiveness, but Hollow overrode them. Sun Girl tried to escape; as she was human, they decided to kill her. Spark tried to lure her into Jack's chains by igniting a fire, but she unexpectedly jumped into the fire instead, grabbing her gear and blasting the chains that held Haechi.

(New Warriors V#8) - As the building burned around them, Jack and the others searched for Haechi. Soon, the rest of the New Warriors arrived; after Silhouette took down Fume and Spark, Jack cocooned her in chains, incapacitating her. He tried to trap the Scarlet Spider, but instead was punched out by Speedball. Lash himself had arrived, and deemed Hollow unworthy, killing him. He apparently judged Jack Chain less harshly, however, and took him and Nightfall back to Orollan with him.

A jack chain is one of those chains where the links are shaped like little figure-eights.
