(Longshot I#2 (fb) - BTS) - As a slave Jackson was forced to perform dangerous stunts in the movies for the Spineless Ones' entertainment.
(Longshot I#2 (fb) - BTS) - Jackson joined Longshot's rebellion against the Spineless Ones.
(Longshot I#2 (fb)) - Equipped with their jet-packs and beam weapons, Jackson and Longshot took to the sky during the rebellion. However during their aerial battle Jackson was shot and killed by a giant war machine. Enraged by the death of his friend, Longshot swore he would avenge Jackson by killing the Spineless Ones.

Jackson of course, was an homage to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. It's a little ironic that the real Michael Jackson would end up looking paler than his Mojoverse namesake did in 1985. Incidentally, Jackson actually tried to buy Marvel Comics in the 90s, perhaps after seeing how well he would fit into it himself.
