Sergeant Stonewall

Backstory

Sergeant Stonewall was born Mark Thompson on February 22, 1971 in Houston, Texas. His mother died when he was six years old, and Mark's father had a hard time dealing with a young son all alone. When Mark was 11, his father sent him to military school. Mark's father died when Mark was only 15 years old. Now an orphan, Mark was essentially adopted by Sergeant Jack Pfeifer, an instructor at Mark's military school.

Mark excelled at the military academy and went on to join the U.S. Army Special Forces after graduation. In 1990, he was shipped to Iraq to fight in the Gulf War under the command of Sgt. Pfeifer. After his performance there, Sgt. Pfeifer recommended Mark for a very special assignment: Mark was to be stationed at the Top Secret military base of Area 51 in Nevada. Mark began his duty there in the spring of 1996. That was the last Mark ever heard from Sgt. Pfeifer. Mark never knew if the man had died. He just seemed to disappear off the face of the earth.

In the winter of 1999, Mark was on guard duty late at night while some of the scientists were performing an experiment with some of the recovered alien technology. Something went wrong and the lab exploded, killing the scientists and injuring some of the guards, including Mark. The right side of Mark's face was badly burned, and his right eye was completely gone. However, things were not as bleak as they might seem. Mark was offered the opportunity to volunteer in a unique experiment, the latest in the top secret Project Eon. Mark accepted, and the doctors and scientists immediately set to work on repairing his face.

The scientists fitted Mark with a Bionic Eye that gave him back his vision in his right eye, as well as many other abilities such as the ability to see in the dark or through almost any material. Moreover, they injected him with an experimental serum that healed almost all of the burns on his face. Even more amazing, Mark found that he could toughen his skin at will, becoming stronger and harder than most normal humans. Some of Mark's fellow soldiers began to jokingly refer to him as "Stonewall".

The Grays crash landed in Washington, D.C. in early 2000 were not that big of a surprise for Mark. He was, after all, working at Area 51. When the terrorists struck on September 11, 2001 however, Mark was taken by surprise. He was even more surprised when he saw that there were other supersoldiers out there much like him, except that they were enemies of the United States. When President John McCain authorized the use of Eon forces in Afghanistan to fight against the enemy supersoldiers, Mark found himself once more on the field of battle. With his Special Forces training, he was very useful to the war effort in Afghanistan. Mark began to refer to himself as "Sergeant Stonewall" then, in honor of his close friend and mentor Sergeant Jack Pfeifer. Mark did not grab the spotlight like other American supersoldiers did such as Marshal or Blitz, and did not join Eon Force when it was created in early 2002.

Instead, Mark stayed in Afghanistan to help the Allies root out the remnants of the Taliban. When the Super War broke out in 2003, Mark did his part to fight the Pantheon from Afghanistan. He survived many battles and was decorated for his bravery. However, things started looking bad for the enemies of the Pantheon until the Exodus of the Grays occurred, and all the supersoldiers Eon Force and Pantheon alike lost their powers, including Mark. Mark was transferred to the Pentagon to work on covert information regarding Project Eon and other uses of advanced Gray technology.

In 2005, while Mark is at the Pentagon, the Cosmic Wave crashes into earth. It mutates a large proportion of the human population. All the supersoldiers get there powers back, and many of their powers actually increase in some ways. Mark found himself with the new ability to form his hands into almost any form he could imagine, as well as having his density changing ability greatly increased. With the anti-super sentiment rising in some segments of government, led by the fanatical Representative Randy Forbes, Mark decides to keep quiet about his newfound abilities until he can better assess the situation and act on it. That's what Sergeant Jack Pfeifer had taught him.
