(Secret Invasion: Front Line#1) - A taxi driver in New York City, Jonathan Bryant walked in on his wife having sex with another man. Furious, he stormed out and drove his taxi away, but Spider-Man battling a Skrull landed on his car. Spidey checked to make sure Bryant was okay, then rushed away to fight more Skrulls. Bryant took his cab in to get fixed, but Porter informed him that he would be responsible for the damages himself, making Bryant even angrier.

(Secret Invasion: Front Line#2) - Bryant fled from his cab, doing his best to avoid the Skrulls, then he saw the Young Avengers fighting the aliens.

(Secret Invasion: Front Line#3 (fb) - BTS) - Bryant fled but realized that many civilians were fleeing as well, so he started guiding people down into the subway tunnels.

(Secret Invasion: Front Line#1 (fb) - BTS) - Bryant gave an interview to Ben Urich, who was recording stories of civilians during the invasion.

(Secret Invasion: Front Line#3) - They made their way toward Stark Tower underground, but found a group of criminals, and one of them shot Jonathan in the gut.

(Secret Invasion: Front Line#4) - As Bryant lay bleeding, the criminals robbed Urich and the others. When the doors to Stark Tower opened, Urich helped Bryant inside, and they found many other civilians, including a cop, Officer Bill Dawson, who told Bryant he was lucky he'd been shot in the stomach as he had a chance of surviving.

(Secret Invasion: Front Line#5) - Bryant died from his wounds.
