Freight Train was a member of the Outsiders.
Freight Train was just an ordinary man with a meager existence until he was bitten by an alien parasite. Instead of dying like most victims, he was given incredible power, transforming into a newblood. Using this new power allowed him to become much more than ordinary. He quickly found out he could use his gifts to get paid and hurting people wasn't an issue. Somewhere along the way, he came into the employ of Simon Stagg. Stagg pitted Freight Train against the Outsiders. Stagg, however, wasn't very loyal to Freight Train. Soon, he switched sides and joined forces with the Outsiders to beat Stagg and his henchman Java.
