It all began during World War Two, when freedom loving patriots everywhere longed for a noble and true hero to lead it out of its darkest days. In a top secret military base a young G-man and scientist, Joe Higgins was chosen to participate in Project Shield. Joe was given an extraordinary suit. It was bullet proof and fire proof. It was also treated with an experimental alloy, that allowed the already athletic Higgins perform amazing feats of strength. The Shield was faithful to his duty. An in the line of duty, one fateful night, his luck ran out, as arch-villain, the Eraser, took him by surprise, His ray debilitated and successfully ended the Shield's career. The Shield's son, Joe Higgins, Jr. combined his fathers anatomical formula with a catalytic agent and expanded upon the powers of his father's uniform to carry on the legacy of Democracy's greatest champion.
