Adventures II#5/1 (fb) - BTS) - The young Joey's father taught him how
to be a good person. Under unrevealed circumstances, Joey's uncle
Roscoe ended up taking care of Joey and Roscoe knew he had become the
boy's only living relative. Joey retained memories of his father
teaching him to be a good person.
(Amazing Adventures II#8/1 (fb) - BTS)
- Roscoe taught Joey how to pick a lock.
(Amazing Adventures II#5/1) - Roscoe
manipulated Joey into climbing up a narrow ladder and sneaking through
a window so he could let Roscoe's criminal friends into a warehouse
they wanted to rob. In tears, Joey refused to go through with it,
saying his father wouldn't have wanted him to, and Roscoe slapped the
boy for his defiance. The arriving Inhuman Black Bolt then shockingly
attacked the criminals, knocking them out to save the boy from further
harm. Overcome by the recent loss of his memories, Black Bolt collapsed and Joey
rushed to his side, encouraging him to speak.
(Amazing Adventures II#6/1) - Joey saw
Black Bolt rush toward the waterfront, where he attempted to speak,
causing a huge ship to explode. Joey rushed Black Bolt to safety before
the authorities showed up. Soon after, Lionel Dibbs found Joey and
Black Bolt and held his cybernetic gun arm on them.
(Amazing Adventures II#7/1) - Dibbs put
his gun away and called Black Bolt and Joey back to his car, offering
an alliance with them, but then Dibbs gassed them in order to keep them
compliant and put them in captivity.
(Amazing Adventures II#8/1) - Joey
broke out of the room that Dibbs had locked him in then knocked over
the chair of the guard placed outside, knocking the man out when his
head hit the floor. As Joey
rushed downtown, he saw Dibbs defeated and Roscoe, who'd been wearing Black
Bolt's costume in a villainous plot, die from overloading the suit. Joey went back to
Black Bolt for comfort.
(Amazing Adventures II#9/1) - Joey got
Black Bolt, who was still amnesiac, a cup of java, but Black Bolt was
startled by how hot it was and rushed out, scared to use his voice.
Joey went after him but they were attacked by Magneto's mutates, who
knocked out Joey with a punch while capturing Black Bolt.
(Amazing Adventures II#10/1) - Joey
woke up and realized that Black Bolt had been taken. Joey was then
beamed aboard the ship of the Trikon, foes of the Inhumans.
(Avengers I#95 (fb) - BTS) - Under
unrevealed circumstances, Joey was released from the Trikon and
reunited with the still-amnesiac Black Bolt. They ended up in San
Francisco, where criminals closed in on them.
(Avengers I#95) - The criminals broke
in and one took Joey hostage, holding a gun to his head, then Captain
America arrived, disabling the criminal with his shield. The Inhuman
Triton entered with Goliath (Clint Barton) and Rick Jones, having taken
down the other criminals. Black Bolt's memories were restored and Joey
realized that Black Bolt was royalty. Black Bolt urgently told the
others that they needed to return to Attilan (which had been taken over by Maximus) and he invited Joey aboard
the Quinjet with him. They met Iron Man, Vision and Thor at Attilan and
Black Bolt lowered the shields around the city. Inside, Black Bolt led
his allies in fighting back against the forces of his brother Maximus,
who had seized control of Attilan, and soon the city was liberated.
Joey stood with Black Bolt as he reclaimed power.
