Bowman is a member of the Freedom Brigade and the father of White Feather, a member of the Inferior Five.

In the 1940's, the Freedom Brigade fought criminals, and Bowman's biggest rival was the Sparrow. Having been defeated, the Sparrow sought revenge against his old foe.[1]

Bowman, after being contacted by Patriot and the rest of his old teammates, pushed William to become a hero with the Inferior Five.[2] Later, he and the retired Freedom Brigade members became teachers at Dean Egghead's Academy for Super-Heroes.[3]


  • This version of Bowman, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
  • The character of Bowman is based on Green Arrow.
  • Bowman's son White Feather is a complete coward, and only fights crime because the thing he's most afraid of is his dad.[4]
  • Like his son, Bowman's last name is presumably King, but that has not been confirmed.
