Major Force is an military operative working under General Eiling.
Martin Stein hoped to continue his research on the Firestorm Matrix, but for that, he needed Firestorm (Jason Rusch/Ronnie Raymond) in a secure location. He turned to the government, and so the mission ended up with General Eiling. Eiling dispatched Major Force.
The hero was fighting several of his villains in Pittsburgh, and Major Force gained his trust by disposing of Hyena. Though Killer Frost briefly froze him, he broke free and punched out Black Bison. He then lured Firestorm to his vehicle and used a special camera to knock him out.
Major Force completed his mission, but Stein had seen how the government subverted his research and brought in Superman. Major Force confronted him about his lack of authority but was easily dispatched.
Powers and Abilities
- Unique Physiology
- Major Force was created by Cary Bates, Greg Weisman, and Pat Broderick, first appearing in Captain Atom (Volume 2) #12. However, in the Prime Earth continuity, Major Force first appeared as part of the New 52 DC Universe in Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #19 by Dan Jurgens.
- Major Force's appearance is different from his previous, purple and yellow design. He resembles the character Black Jack (Major Bolton), introduced in Voodoo (Volume 2) #2. The DC Comics Encyclopedia: All-New Edition connects the two, using an image of Black Jack and positing that they may have been the same, or, as Black Jack was decapitated, Major Force is a successor to the role. Major Force is never identified as either Major Bolton or his previous name, Clifford Zmeck, and holds the rank of colonel.
