Chuck Wilson was a member of the Blackhawk Squadron.

Before joining Blackhawk, the Texas-born cowboy was a high-flying member of England's Royal Air Force. Chuck was an expert pilot and electronics genius[1] as well as a lover of a good, old-fashioned brawl. Though good-natured, Chuck could also be a deadly enemy.

During the Second World War and then the Cold War, Chuck Wilson served in the Blackhawk Squadron as a combat pilot, commando, and radio expert.

In the late 1960s, when the team adopted "secret identities," Chuck used his electronics genius to become a super eaves-dropper known as the Listener.[2]

In the 1970s, Chuck was the chief scientist for the Cunningham Aircraft company.[3]

Chuck died when he crashed his plane into the War Wheel to save the lives of Blackhawk and Andre in a battle with Killer Shark.[4]
