(Age of the Sentry#3) - Junior Hawler is a hillbilly living in the Ozarks. He went night fishing with Jake one night and drew water from their fishing spot, which a meteorite had irradiated. Drinking the irradiated water gave Junior super powers.
Junior caused a series of trouble in the region as he dropped a train on the highway, diverted Yaller River over the road and filled it with alligators, and displaced several houses of the Durleys family to make a pile with them.
Robert Reynolds aka. the Sentry was ordered by Burton Dubois to investigate the area for the Excelsior Encyclopedia. The discovery of all those troubles led Robert to change himself into the Sentry to stop Junior.
After a few moments, fighting and talking to each other, Robert learned that the source of Junior's power was the ingestion of water irradiated by an extraterrestrial meteorite.
Robert fought Mountain Man until his metabolism finally burnt out the irradiated water and left him powerless in the process.
