    former participants in the Game

History:
(Dragon's Claws#5 fb) - BTS) -
Incinerator Jones and the Jones Boys were former participants in the Game, a brutal form of gladiatorial combat organized by the World Development Council to curb civil unrest.

(Dragon's Claws#5 fb) - BTS) - In 8158 AD, following the massacre of 153 civilians during a play-off, which became known as the Miami Bloodbath, the WDC canceled the Game. Concerned that unemployed ex-Gamers would stoke urban unrest, the WDC created N.U.R.S.E. (the National Union of Retired Sports Experts), ostensibly to find suitable work for them; instead, N.U.R.S.E.’s corrupt head, Matron, attempted to extort protection money from the former Gamers, causing many of them to rebel.

(Dragon's Claws#2 - BTS / Dragon's Claws#5 (fb) - BTS) - The Dragon's Claws took down the Evil Dead -- killing three of their members, leaving only Slaughterhouse and Death Nell alive -- under the direction of N.U.R.S.E., apparently/secretly for refusing to pay N.U.R.S.E.'s protection money.

(Dragon's Claws#5 fb) - BTS) - Unable to pay N.U.R.S.E.'s protection money, Incinerator Jones instructed his Jones Boys loot the Evil Dead's base.jones_boys-5555-8162ad-bob-rob-mostfull

(Dragon's Claws#5 fb) - BTS) - As Cousin Rob and Cousin Bob approached the Evil Dead's base, the mechanoid Death's Head materialized, sent there by the Doctor.

(Dragon's Claws#5) - Assuming the new arrival to be reinforcements for the Evil Dead, Cousin Rob and Cousin Bob confronted Death's Head, warning him against meeting up with his Evil Dead buddies. Though he just sought information, Cousin Bob forced a conflict, and Death's Head swiftly slew the two cousins.

(Dragon's Claws#5 - BTS) - Death Nell then exited the Evil Dead's base and told Death's Head she wanted to hire him.

(Dragon's Claws#5 - BTS) - Deller, the soldier commissioned by N.U.R.S.E. to reactivate Dragon's Claws, informed the Claws that Incinerator Jones and his boys were having an unauthorized barbecue, and Dragon's Claws departed to takes down the Jones Boys.

(Dragon's Claws#5 fb) - BTS) - Incinerator Jones led a a number of his boys and girls to the Evil Dead's base.

(Dragon's Claws) - Incinerator Jones told his boys and girls to do their daddy proud in obtaining the Evil Dead's weapons and riches. As his one son, "fire forehead" shouted about burning it all down, Incinerator advised him that they should let his brothers and sisters clean out the stuff first. Incinerator silently considered that he wasn't happy that it had come to ex-Gamers killing each other because of
N.U.R.S.E., but that by now N.U.R.S.E. would have noticed their non-payment, and he didn't want to end up like the Evil Dead.

(Dragon's Claws#5 - BTS) - As the Jones Boys blew open the door into the Evil Dead's vault, Dragon's Claws heard this and rushed to join the struggle.

(Dragon's Claws) - The Jones Boys marveled at the Evil Dead's accumulated wealth and weaponry, and Incinerator Jones told his boys to load up: "This stuff could be our salvation. We'll either buy our way out of this mess...or shoot our way out." jones_boys-5555-8162ad-vDH
    The Jones Boys failed to notice Nell and Death's Head passing by the open vault.

(Dragon's Claws#5 - BTS) - Although Death's Head was surprised they were just walking away from the vault, Nell took him to another room loaded with medical supplies, which she noted to be the real currency of modern society.

(Dragon's Claws) - Soon after Death's Head engaged the Jones Boys, Dragon's Claws arrived

(Dragon's Claws#5 - BTS) - Slaughterhouse and Death Knell took advantage of the distraction to escape unseen.

(Dragon's Claws) - Mercy kicked "fire forehead" on the chin, dropping him, and when "bowl-cut" assaulted Death's Head, Dragon shot "bowl-cut" three times in the chest, apparently killing him.

    Steel and Digit then took out another pair of the Jones Boys, Mercy slashed
Incinerator Jones' with her sword. Struggling to breathe, Incinerator Jones told Mercy that the Claws were being used as N.U.R.S.E.'s hired killers.

    After Incinerator apparently died, Mercy calmly noted, "So what?!"

(Dragon's Claws#5 - BTS) - Meanwhile, Deller precipitated a fight between Death's Head and Dragon's Claws, which ultimately led to the destruction of the Evil Dead's base, burying a partially dismantled Death's Head while Dragon's Claws escaped.

(Dragon's Claws#5 - BTS) - Mercy took "fire forehead" with her as they escaped.

(Dragon's Claws#5) - Mercy held "fire forehead" as they watched the smoking rubble and discussed whether Death's Head had survived or not.

(Dragon's Claws#5 (fb) - BTS) - Dragon's Claws turned "fire forehead" over to N.U.R.S.E.

(Dragon's Claws#5) - After "fire forehead" swore that he hadn't told Dragon anything about their "tax," N.U.R.S.E.agent Stenson slit his throat before reporting to N.U.R.S.E. leader Matron.

Comments: Created by Simon Furman and Geoff Senior under the Marvel UK imprint.

    I don't think ALL of the Jones Boys are offspring of Incinerator Jones. Notably, the names Cousin Bob and Cousin Rob certainly imply that they may be the children of one of Incinerator Jones' siblings. However, Cousin Bob referred to Incinerator as "poppa." Maybe it's just a whole family, or maybe they're not related at all, and it's like the Ramones, or Thompson Twins.

    I went back and forth a few times trying to decide whether to profile Incinerator Jones as one profile, with the Jones Boys and its individual members as sub-profiles, or with the Jones Boys as the main profile, with Incinerator and the others as sub-profiles. Maybe someday when I have more time, I'll split off Incinerator Jones, at least, into his own profile. Cousin Rob and Cousin Bob have enough character to get their own profiles, too. "Fire forehead" could, too, but since he didn't get any identification whatsoever, I think he belongs with the others in sub-profiles.

Profile by Snood.

CLARIFICATIONS:
The Jones Boys have no known connections to:


"Incinerator" Jones

*

jones_boys-5555-8162ad-incinerator-best-upper     The apparent father (literal or possibly just a paternal figure) of the group, Incinerator Jones was the leader.

     He wore a full face mask as well as a gas mask (presumably allowing him to breathe in smoky or at least low-oxygen areas.

     Like most of the Jones Boys, he carried a tank on his back that carried a gas he could ignite, allowing him to project flames. He also carried a dagger, with which he unwisely chose to challenge Mercy. Maybe he wanted to die...

--Dragon's Claws#5

Note:
I put "Incinerator" in quotes in the memberships and sub-profiles, but who knows, maybe in the 82nd century, "Incinerator" could be his real first name. Seems like asking for trouble naming a kid "Incinerator," but what are you going to do...

     These last two images may seem redundant, but the left image shows him clutching his abdomen, which confirms the location in which Mercy slashed him, while the image on the right shows the tank, mask, straps, etc. in better detail...

     Incinerator Jones is also pictured in the top right main image directing the others to storm the Evil Dead's base and the image within the Evil Dead's vault

Cousin Bob

jones_boys-5555-8162ad-bob-closefacejones_boys-5555-8162ad-bob-assaultdh.jpg     Cousin Bob either wore red face paint or had a red tattoo or something covering much of his face.

     He wore most of his hair short and blond, with a central orange "Mohawk" style meant to look like fire.

     He also wore goggles.

     Like most of the Jones Boys, he carried a tank on his back that carried a gas he could ignite, allowing him to project flames.

(Dragon's Claws#5 fb) - BTS) - Cousin Bob and the rest of the Jones Boys were former participants in the Game, a brutal form of gladiatorial combat organized by the World Development Council to curb civil unrest.

(Dragon's Claws#5 fb) - BTS) - Unable to pay N.U.R.S.E.'s protection money, Incinerator Jones instructed his Jones Boys loot the Evil Dead's base.

(Dragon's Claws#5 fb) - BTS) - As Cousin Rob and Cousin Bob approached the Evil Dead's base, the mechanoid Death's Head materialized, sent there by the Doctor.

(Dragon's Claws#5) - Assuming the new arrival to be reinforcements for the Evil Dead, Cousin Rob and Cousin Bob confronted Death's Head, warning him against meeting up with his Evil Dead buddies.

     Though he would have normally just killed the pair and be done with it, Death's Head sought information on where and when he was, and so he revealed he had nothing to do with the Evil Dead and that he was a freelance peacekeeping agent, and he asked the name of the planet and the year so he could be on his way.
jones_boys-5555-8162ad-bob-profile

    Cousin Bob was amused, considering the mechanoid to be a basket case, but Cousin Rob supplied the information suggested they get out of there to avoid the "mean-lookin' dude."

     Bob reminded Rob that poppa had told them to claim the Evil Dead's arms and cash, and when Rob started to argue, Bob told him to drop it...at which point Death's Head allowed his right hand to drop to the ground, as if on cue.

    As Death's Head reached for a weapon attachment, Bob turned his flame-thrower on Death's Head.

     Unharmed, Death's Head advised Bob that he had been doing fine until they got him mad; as Bob urged and led in flight, Death's Head fired an explosive round that apparently took out Bob.

(Dragon's Claws#5 - BTS) - After Death's Head slew Rob, Death Nell exited the Evil Dead's base and told Death's Head she wanted to hire him.

--Dragon's Claws#5jones_boys-5555-8162ad-bob-death

Note: Although known as "Cousin Bob," he called Incinerator Jones "Poppa."

     Maybe Cousin Rob, the one who called him "Cousin Bob," was the nephew of Incinerator, and Bob was Incinerator's son.

    Or none of them were even related, and it was all just a thing they did.

     Bob is also pictured in the main profile in the distant images where he and Rob first confronted Death's Head, as well as in the image that shows Bob and Rob mostly full body as they watch Death's Head's hand drop.



Cousin Rob

jones_boys-5555-8162ad-rob-face-profile





     Cousin Rob wore a red and yellow helmet styled to look aflame, along with an actual or ornamental flame extending from its top.

     Like most of the Jones Boys, he carried a tank on his back that carried a gas he could ignite, allowing him to project flames. He also carried a dagger.

     Although more cautious/fearful, after Bob was slain, Rob angrily turned back on his attacker

    Cousin Rob was more concerned with what looked like a "mean-lookin' dude," and he volunteered the desired information (it was 8162 AD and Earth), after which he suggested they get out of there. Bob reminded Rob that poppa had told them to claim the Evil Dead's arms and cash, and when Rob started to argue, Bob told him to drop it...at which point Death's Head allowed his right hand to drop to the ground, as if on cue.

    As Death's Head reached for a weapon attachment, Bob turned his flame-thrower on Death's Head. Unharmed, Death's Head advised Bob that he had been doing fine until they got him mad; as Bob urged and led in flight, Death's Head fired an explosive round that apparently took out Bob. Rob then turned and attacked Death's Head with a knife, which bent upon striking Death's Head's armored chest, after which Death's Heads grabbed Rob by the neck and smashed his head through a pipe, noting that though he killed for money, he sometimes did freebies.

    Death Nell then exited the Evil Dead's base and told Death's Head she wanted to hire him.

--Dragon's Claws#5

Note: He was known as "Cousin Rob" to the partner he called Cousin Bob, who in turn called Incinerator Jones "Poppa." Maybe Cousin Rob was the nephew of Incinerator Jones. Or none of them were even related and it was all just a thing they did.

     Rob is also pictured in the main profile in the distant images where he and bob first confronted Death's Head, as well as in the image that shows Bob and Rob mostly full body as they watch Death's Head's hand drop.

--Dragon's Claws#5

Note: This character was never named or described, so I'm just using the name "bowl cut" as a descriptive term for his haircut.


"fire forehead"


jones_boys-5555-8162ad-firefh-face     Perhaps slightly even more of a pyromaniac than the rest of his family, he had the word "fire" either painted or tattooed (or something) or his forehead, and he shaved the front part of his scalp to make sure the word were seen.

     Like most of the Jones Boys, he carried a tank on his back that carried a gas he could ignite, allowing him to project flames.

--Dragon's Claws#5

Note: Cousin Bob and Cousin Rob were eliminated before Incinerator Jones accompanied the others to the Evil Dead's base.

     When Incinerator Jones and the others prepared to storm the Evil Dead's base (image on the right), only Incinerator and "fire forehead" were shown clearly, and only two others were shown at all (distantly), with at least one of them maybe being a woman.

     Within the Evil Dead's vault (upper right image in this profile), five others are shown (distantly) in addition to Incinerator Jones.

     During the fight, we clearly see Incinerator Jones and "bowl cut" slain, as well as "fire forehead" being taken out of the fight.

     Just as Dragon's Claws arrived at the fight, we see Death's Head dodging fire from one member while shooting another (neither is shown closely, but AT LEAST the one being shot appears to be a woman).

     After
fire forehead" and "bowl cut" are taken down, we see Steel and Digit take down a pair of the Jones Boys (lower left image above). Steel's victim is shown in mostly full profile (except we can't see the head) and appears to be male. Digit's victim is only seen as a gloved hand and partial forearm. Those four, plus the one shot by Death's Head, would cover the five seen in the vault...

     Or maybe there were even more Jones Boys, and more of them were taken out off panel.

     By the time Deller provoked the fight with Death's Head, the Jones Boys had already been taken out. It's possible that some were only subdued rather than slain, as was the case with "fire forehead"; however, while "fire forehead" was pulled out of the collapsing building by Mercy, none of those others were shown to escape, so that likely killed off anyone else who wasn't quite dead yet.
