Powers/Abilities: Jack Dancer is a mutate
whose power is enhanced durability (although he descibes himself as invulnerable), making him immune to almost any injury
with advanced recovery from fatigue and inhibited aging, although he can bleed (briefly). He has an
adventuring spirit and has already learnt much across several centuries
of life. Although Dancer enjoys a brawl, he is not an accomplished
Weight: 170 lbs. (by approximation)
(Foxfire#3 (fb) - BTS) - Having lived about three
centuries, life had become a little boring for Jack Dancer, although he had learnt a lot, and even
found out about the giant celestial body, the Godwheel. Eventually he
became aware of missing children with powers, connecting them to the
villainous Mourning Star, secretly a cyborg from an apocalyptic future
(Earth-95431), who sought the life essence of ultras to sustain herself.
(Foxfire#1) - Dancer threw himself into another brawl
(Foxfire#3) - Mourning Star had her agents capture
him to stop his interference and began torturing him to see how much pain his immortal physique
could stand. Later, he was left strung up by his wrists, where the human
ultra-alien hybrid Foxfire and the ultra Mustang, fleeing their cells,
found and released him. Dancer told Foxfire that another victim was
calling for her (actually her cyborg father). However, Custodian robot
guards arrived to apprehend them; Foxfire and Mustang tore through them
until more powerful Tradesmen aliens (allied with Mourning Star) also arrived. All
three escaped to a transmat platform, where Dancer plotted an escape to
the Godwheel, but damage caused it to misdirect them to Earth-616 in
the middle of a firefight in New York between the Punisher and mobsters.
(Foxfire#4) - Mourning Star and several Tradesmen
aliens soon followed Foxfire and her friends, but Mustang was killed.
While Foxfire destroyed Mourning Star, Dancer and Punisher overcame the
two remaining Tradesmen. After teleporting Punisher away, Foxfire
explained that her full powers were now unlocked. This left Dancer
surprised and she returned back to Earth-93060 using her own powers and
took Dancer with her, intending to free the remaining ultra children
